Winter Wonderland & Valentines Day

Back from cold and icy Atlanta to cold and SNOWY Maine! We had a classic winter storm on Friday,blowing snow and lots of it... left us with a beautiful blindingly white landscape and frigid bluebird skies due to the cold front that blew in behind the snow. A dream for all the outdoor enthusiasts who are skiing and snow shoeing and sledding this weekend and a curse for all those who were prematurely wishing for spring!

At Betsy's Sunflower we are tidying up after our short closing and successful trip to the Atlanta Market. Cleaning the store and making way for all the exciting new products that are soon to be shipped to Brooklin Maine from near and far.

Plenty of new garden items, gloves, H2O cans,seeds, pots, tools, books and the like to whet our appetites for spring gardening.

Fun new fangled kitchen gadgets and old standbys....great new totes and bags for the garden, boat or farmers market. Bright new spring and summer kitchen linens and aprons have been carefully chosen and will arrive just when you need to perk things up after a long snowy winter!

We will be reopening on Thursday January 27th with winter hours. Open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 11:00am until 5:00pm.

Don't forget Valentines Day is just around the corner. We have lovely Valentines cards and great gifts for your sweetheart.

For her: we have beautiful earrings by Riverlily and Beth Myers, deliciously scented soaps, lotions and candles and stemware for her favorite celebratory beverage, garden hats, gloves and books and so much more!

For him: We have cruising and nature guides,nautical charts, BBQ gadgets and sauces, handy pocket screw drivers, barware, martini olives ..(sorry, we are temporarily out of our signature Brooklin T-shirt)..but it has been reordered for spring in great new colors and more sizes!

Stop by and shop for your Valentine or for yourself! Let us fill you in on all the new items that will be arriving this month and next in preparation for a busy spring and summer season and our first anniversary!
