2004 Best Gifts, Martha's Vineyard

Midnight Farm

You may not be looking for anything in particular when you enter Midnight Farm, but once you lay eyes on its quirky and exotic collection of clothing, housewares, bedding, and gifts, you’ll surely find an excuse to slap down your credit card. Co-owned by singer Carly Simon, the shop stocks ethereally scented lotions and body creams, soft-as-can-be knit outfits to cover some lucky baby’s bottom, handmade shoes, and (of course) CDs and books signed by Simon.
