What a pleasant surprise! This little 'hidden gem' is right on Water Street (the main street) in the little village of Lubec, ME. There is a wide assortment of unique, high quality gifts - an unexpected pleasure, so to speak. This is NOT your typical tourist trap; there is everything from handsome stationery to clever stuffed toys & pillows; beautiful... More

The shop is small but is loaded with lots of beautiful items. But it's set up in such a way that you're not terrified to walk through it! The owner is helpful and friendly. If you're looking for gifts from your trip, or for a hostess gift, or for something for yourself, you should be able to find it here!

Small, but check full of interesting jewelry, art, pottery, books, scarves, soaps, etc. a fabulous selection of handmade cards. Price points are good with beautiful work available at varied price ranges. Definitely the place to stop if your looking to bring home a small piece of Lubec. And, they're very dog friendly.

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.
