I stopped in this store because I needed an emergency shoe repair. It was a welcome surprise to see all of the lovely items in the store. Beautiful, quality items and not the tourist junk. Very friendly staff. Definitely a must see in Lubec!

Just a fun place to browse and find that special gift for you or someone else! It is not your basic tourist shop, no touristy junk.

And the owner is quite terrific, too. She has a well-edited variety of gifts and housewares, all tending toward clean and modern, US made, sea-oriented. Great fabrics. I went a couple of times my last Lubec visit, and wound up with a few table items that I love. And I had a wonderful time talking with the owner, my new... More

A well curated selection of local offerings. None of the junk so prevalent in alot of touristy shops. Local artisans in print, jewelry and other assorted things make this a must stop! Besides, they will ship any thing you buy if you can't take it with you - but don't want to leave it behind!

Not a big store, but I always find something to take home. Herb mixes "Maine Mud", scarves, ceramics and other handmade goodies. Debbie created a wonderful store. Best in Lubec.

I love local shops that really are made in the USA :) Got some great coffee and a warm pair of socks. They have lovely art work and jewelry as well. Very friendly owner that directed us to a great lobster roll at Beckys Seafood. We needed a spot to eat with our pups.

This is a nice little gift shop with some interesting things. I especially enjoyed their soaps and their jewelry. It is certainly worth a stop.

Northern Tides is an art form all of it's own; an authentic cultural representation of all things artisticly maritime - a classy seaside gallery- shop with hospitality equally as fitting. Remember to sample NT's unique java blend!

This is a great little store with so many unique items. All price ranges supports many local artists. Great place to buy gifts that are one of a kind. Debbie and her husband are such wonderful people and very knowledgeable of the many things to see. I visit here whenever I go back to Lubec.
