UPDATE: Summer Hours and new changes to guidelines

Hi everyone! We are now open Weds-Sun 12:00-4:00, and will be adding new days/hours in July -- stay tuned! We've been keeping an eye on the numbers, and Maine's Covid cases are staying nice and low, while the vaccination numbers are at a healthy level.  With that in mind, effective Saturday June 26, 2021, we are finally taking the plunge and now will only require masks if you are unvaccinated.  Just in time for the really hot weather!  Of course, anyone uncomfortable without the protection of a mask is welcome to wear theirs regardless.  We have fans going, the door...

UPDATE: Winter hours

We continue to offer local pickup and mail order for those who...

UPDATE: Now open for limited hours Weds-Sat

Hello everyone-- Effective Wednesday July 15, we reopened with limited hours for browsing. We are now open Weds-Sat, 12:00-4:00.  Facemasks are required.  Hand sanitizing is required.  Up to 5 people can be in the store at a time, which allows everyone plenty of square footage to themselves. We continue to offer local pickup and mail order for those who want to avoid as much contact as possible. I was very concerned that when it became necessary for the shop's survival to do this, that it be done in the safest way possible, and I think we have managed to accomplish...
