“Handpainted Ornaments We Love from Maine!”
Reviewed January 17, 2010

We visited this store while on a honeymoon cruise in September 2009. We wanted to find a beautiful Maine ornament that would commemorate our honeymoon and our trip to Bar Harbor. When we stepped into the store it was so cute! All sorts of Christmas decor and so many ornaments and gifts to choose from. There were souvenirs, nutcrackers and ornaments from Maine and all over. We wanted something special so we asked the manager to help us find something. She showed us a bunch of things and then let us know that they paint and make ornaments right on the spot. What a great idea!!! We looked at some of their samples and then selected a beautiful Snoballs Collection hand painted ornament. Not only did she paint it right there in front of us, but she also added a jewel to commemorate our wedding and honeymoon month of September. We love it! We put it on our Christmas tree this year and will be back to purchase more each year!
