Indian Summer in Brooklin

















It's about time I got back to updating this Blog! We were SOOO busy this summer.... YAY!!! I barely had time to restock and reorder, let alone play around with the computer or take pictures...thank you, thank you to all of our loyal return customers and all the wonderful new friends we made at Betsy's this summer...Every day was non stop and we loved every minute of it!

We have officially arrived at fall, though you might not know it from the gorgeous and warm Indian Summer weather we have been enjoying. The garden is absolutely brimming with late season flowers, butterflies, hummingbirds who haven't fled south yet and lush fall veggies we are trying to put to use or save for winter....so far, the pickles, pesto, beans and berries are frozen or canned, now I am working my way through the swiss chard and eggplants and late season tomatoes...ratatouille anyone?

At the store we have now switched to our Fall Hours: Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 to 5:00pm although we often open on Sunday or Monday by chance or Appt. so just call ahead or email betsysunflowermaine@yahoo.com if you are heading our way! 207-359-5030.

We are gearing up for the holidays and new things are arriving every day...we have a great selection of Halloween Cards for all your little ghouls and goblins and already selling lots of beautiful boxed Holiday cards from Saturn Press on Swans Island and Molly O in Camden!



















Our Children's Book selection continues to grow and our newest addition is Pulitzer Prize winning author and Brooklin resident Michael Chabon's newest "The Amazing Adventures of Awesome Man"...sure to please all the little super heroes in your life!
Beautiful Fall scarves have arrived..great way to spice up any outfit and a perfect gift!

Warm and wooly woven scarves, socks and one of a kind fingerless "texting" gloves for fall/winter are on their way...

We are stocking up on stocking stuffers and all sorts of gadgets and goodies for your fall and holiday needs....

Don't forget we are loaded with cards for any occasion...Local artists Tom Curry, Gail Page, Molly O'Rourke, Barbara Joy Hare and Molly O of Camden and Sharon Holden's photo cards are represented along with Saturn Press and more!
