Aside from gardening and sailing there is nothing I would rather do than play in the kitchen! Having owned Betsy's Sunflower (primarily a kitchen shop) for twelve years in Apalachicola Florida I had a great time pulling together a selection of functional, affordable and fun gadgets and necessities for the kitchen, galley or as a gift for anyone who loves to cook!

Betsy's Sunflower Brooklin is 1/4 the size of my old store so I have done some serious editing of my product line, but kept all the very best and some of my particular favorites to offer here in Brooklin.
WOW! Just back form the Atlanta Gift and Housewares Show...I am a gadget freak and there were so many neat new little Kitchen gadgets I don't know where to begin! New products from lots of our regular suppliers as well as some exciting new companies with great design and ideas.We ordered up a bunch and can't wait to intoroduce them this spring!
If you find yourself missing a paring knife, can opener, peeler, garlic press, zester, spatula or measuring spoon don't fret, there is no need to drive miles to find one! Stop by Betsy's first and you most likely will not need to go any further! Gadgets galore from quality vendors at reasonable prices!

Need a baking pan, cookie sheet, lobster pot, pie plate, casserole, ramekin, prep bowl, timer, or any other kitchen must have? We have it right here in Brooklin at Betsy's.

Kitchen linens are a bad habit of mine, so there are lots and lots of dish towels for every decor and every need. Jaquard, bamboo, 100% cotton, linen, plain and fancy. Lots of neat dishcloths, potholders, oven mitts, aprons and fun and colorful cleaning supplies as well. Sponges, brushes, microfiber cloths for every possible use from cleaning glassware to cleaning your pet and everything in between!

If you or someone you know is a barbeque afficionado check out the tools, gadgets,sauces and rubs in Greg's barbeque section.( winner of the 2011 Men Who Cook competition sponsored by SeaMark in Deer Isle for his slow cooked pulled pork).you may even find him smoking something on the grill when you stop by. Just follow your nose!

I am always trying to find smaller kitchen items for use in the galley  and I have a pretty good collection of collapsible colanders, measuring cups, buckets..even a salad spinner that makes stowing them so much easier. Small size spatulas, unbreakable drinkware,  are just a few of the galley options you will come across at Betsy's Sunflower and I am always open to suggestion, so if you have a favorite little item you can't live without, let me know and I will track it down and make it available here.

If you are seeking  a wedding or a hostess gift or housewarming present check out our selection of bamboo and wooden salad bowls, handmade stoneware vases,  stemware, bakeware  and other great items too numerous to mention. Don't forget we offer free giftwrapping!
