What the Framingham?: Giant Gifts

September 12th, 2006

Ethan made up a new category called “What the Framingham?”and I didn’t have anything to put in it until I visited Giant Gifts.
First I couldn’t tell when this place was even open because it always happened to be closed when I went by and there are no hours posted, just a little sign that says to ask next door at Big Town Pantry so I did and they told me Giant Gifts opens at 6am.  On the way home from the gym at 6:30am I stopped by but they weren’t open and then the next time I happened to be by was 4:45pm few days later so I went in to see what this mysterious place was all about.
I don’t get it, Ithought this place must be a front for something (maybe the street address was code for something), maybe not but I just don’t know. 
This is what I found inside:
Make up selection

Health and beauty section

Greeting cards
Fake Barbie named “Gloria” bathroom set


  1. I’ve never noticed this place. Where is it? Sounds like it might be like a dollar store, or 135 Discount in Ashland.

  2. Hi Dave,
    It’s at 420 Franklin Street.

  3. I bank a BankNorth there at Franklin Street, so I’ve seen the place often but just couldn’t figure out what it was and when it was open, either. I wonder who shops there, how is stays in business, and IS it a “front” or something?

  4. It’s the wife of the owner from Big Town Pantry’s place. She just opens whe she feels like it. gives her something to do I guess and runs as an offshoot of the Pantry.

  60. I drop a comment whenever I especially enjoy a article on a website
    or I have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation. Usually it’s caused by the passion displayed in the post I browsed.
    And after this post This Is Framingham » Blog Archive » What the Framingham?: Giant Gifts.

    I was actually excited enough to drop a comment 🙂 I do have 2 questions for you if you
    don’t mind. Is it just me or do a few of the comments look as if they are left by brain dead visitors?
    😛 And, if you are writing on additional online sites,
    I would like to keep up with you. Would you make a list the complete urls of your public sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
