I grew up in Maine and moved to Alaska after finishing graduate school in NYC. I had three careers while living in Alaska, including owning a tea house and gift shop. I sold that business and retired before moving back to Maine. Once my daughter went away to college, I decided it was time to open another store, so I created a space full of treasures from Maine and other New England states. We celebrated our 3rd anniversary in November and we've enjoyed helping locals and visitors find the perfect gift for themselves and others.
More than 70 percent of our products are from Maine. We sell Sea Bags, made on the waterfront in Portland; Seawicks Candles, made on the waterfront in Boothbay Harbor; Fresh Harvest in a Jar jam from Topsham; and pottery, jewelry, cards, wall art, specialty foods, and dog treats and toys all made in Maine. Two of our featured artists live right here in Saco and two others are from OOB and Scarborough. We love local artists.
We have a few things from the other New England states, including Andy’s Dandy's dog treats from Vermont; Lemon & Line rope bracelets from Rhode Island; cuff bracelets from Nautically Northern in Massachusetts, colorful earrings and bracelets from We Dream in Color in Massachusetts; and whimsical cutting boards from New Hampshire Bowl and Board near Contoocook.
We have two shop dogs...Don Juan, an Italian greyhound, and Cuddle, a 16-year-old chihuahua. Feel free to bring in your pooch to meet them. We are pet friendly and dog obsessed.
Visit us anytime you need a special gift for a special someone.
