When visiting a new place it is always fun to try and seek out a little memento of your trip that you might not find anywhere else! We are lucky to live in a state where creativity and quality are the norm. Betsy's Sunflower in Brooklin offers a carefully selected collection of unique items that are made in Maine. Everything from felted catnip mice & other treats for your canine and feline friends, to Maine made candles, fun and colorful cards and posters by Maine artists. So, if you are on vacation or visiting the area you will surely find something locally made to take home with you.
..We love Leslie Evans and her beautifully crafted balsam pillows and runners! Our colorful and durable float rope mats will be back of course and our Brooklin "Boat building capital of the world" Tee's and cafe mugs are a huge hit. don't overlook our custom made marble coasters and trivets with the local Eggemoggin Reach navigational chart imprinted on them...perfect gift for anyone who longs to be here or wants a great reminder of a lovely visit.
Localy made Island Soaps are too much fun and Dr. Dandelions beautifully packaged soaps make a beautiful little gift to treasure.
Our book section features an ever growing number of titles by the local Maine authors we are lucky to have in our midst!
