Shopping on Main Street in Falmouth

FALMOUTH — Scarecrows lined Main Street and merchants were advertising half-off dancing skeletons and orange glow sticks. Halloween was still two days away, but Heather Shepley had nearly finished her holiday shopping. And she did most of it in the quarter-mile stretch of Main Street between the Village Green and the library.

“I absolutely try to do as much as I can in town, and what I can’t do in town I try to keep on Cape Cod,” the Falmouth resident said, browsing the shelves in a Main Street gift shop. “And the best part is, when I wander around, I get a lot of great ideas.”
