289 Bradford Street

Under the bland gray paint job on this Greek Revival shed, there may be bold bands of red, white and blue. This was once the Far Out shop. It stood at 234 Commercial, in the little Union Square complex next to the Unitarian-Universalist Meeting House. Over the years — before being moved here — it was a florist (Austin of Wellfleet), a doctor’s office (Thomas F. Perry, M.D.), a candy and fudge store (Barrett’s) and a jeweler (Cape Rock). Susan Leonard recalled a tenant — perhaps Gary Milek or Robert Olmstead — who did a booming business carving Easter Island-inspired tiki pendants.
