PJ & Bets

PJ & Bets! Together again! Retail mavens from way back....still at it! Betsy's Sunflower was originally located in Apalachicola Florida right across the street from Riverlily ( a store for your senses) owned by PJ Trowell....PJ recently visited our new location in Brooklin....funny thing is...she lives in Maine now(and Apalachicola) and recently opened a Riverlily branch in Cherryfield! So, we're almost right across the street from each other (maybe by a few miles!) once again....we have been through thick and thin together over the many years we have known each other and shopped till we dropped in as many markets as we could get to and haven't stopped yet..we even owned a store together for a while...aptly named PJ & BETS! I still have the hats and mugs to prove it...LOL.
We both had such a crazy busy summer season, we have hardly had the chance to see each other, so her visit was a real treat!
PJ and I are always on the lookout for the coolest, most unusual and best quality products we can find for our stores and we help each other out and share sources and ideas whenever we check out both stores and see what we have come up with's always a surprise!
and don't forget if you are in Apalachicola stop by and see the fabulous original Riverlily, still going strong!

One of a Kind Aprons at Betsy's for Fall

Just a few of the beautiful aprons being handmade exclusively for Betsy's Sunflower by Nancy Randall right here in Brooklin (can't get much more locally made than that!) out of gorgeous vintage fabrics with exquisite details, trims, buttons and lace. The pictures don't begin to do them justice...come on in for a closer look and try one on....or tell Nancy what you are looking for..she has scads of materials to work with and may be able to customize an apron for you.
Great gift with Holidays approaching for you or someone you love.

Our hand made one of a kind fingerless gloves are also just the thing for these cool fall days...keeps your wrists and hands warm and toasty and leaves your fingers free for writing , texting, driving , holding your cup o' joe or knitting up some wintry socks!
