Haute Spot: O&CO. Mediterranean Food Merchant

O& CO., oh my! I recently stumbled upon this gourmet specialties store in Back Bay and what a happy accident it was.

For ten years Oliver’s & Company (which goes by the name “O&CO.”) has been offering customers a special service: they import the finest olive oils from private, family-owned farms in Italy, France, Spain, and Portugal then deliver them to their upscale Mediterranean shops, which number 14 around the world including Boston’s branch.

Haute Event: Behind the Scenes at the New England Boat Show

Buying a boat, according to a CBS Money Report, is one way to "buy happiness"; and I must say that after time on a few yachts at the New England Boat Show I could not stop smiling.
