30 years ago Denise Bryant built a small 2 story shop selling antiques and her handmade quilts. As time went on and she found her niche, Denise expanded the shop two more times in order to keep up with the demands of her growing customer base. Not only were the locals enjoying what the shop had to offer, she was attracting customers from all over the state of Maine and afar. Maine crafters were also approaching her looking for a place to showcase their work.
After going strong for 30 years, Denise had been exploring the possibility of retiring. However she wanted to find the right person who would keep the shop running similar to how it has been all of these years.
During the off season of 2016, Denise made the jump and sold the shop to Angel Farris, a longtime customer who loved the idea of turning something old or unwanted into something useful again. Angel purchased the shop with the intention of keeping things just how they have been for the last 30 years and started working right away reaching out to crafters and familiarizing herself with the inventory.
With some minor visual changes made, you will continue to find unique country crafts by over 100 Maine artisans. Inventory change frequently and prices are kept low. If you don’t find what you are looking for, stop in again to see what else is new. We will do our best to help you find your one of a kind treasure.
