Thank you to our many customers and community supporters who stopped at the shop on Saturday to help us celebrate our 50th anniversary. We were also celebrating the addition of the beautiful book carving over our door, and our new outside sign, both created by Damariscotta artist and sculptor Jacques Vesery and given to us by an anonymous donor.

Special thanks to Priscilla Smith, for sharing her observations about her mother-in-law, Mary Wallace Smith, the library volunteer who founded the shop in 1968; to Sumner Richards, who parked his vintage VW camper outside our door for visitors to enjoy; and to Barn Door Baking Co. for their beautifully decorated, delicious cake.

This week’s half-price sales are in Self Help, which includes Alternative Healing, Mental and Emotional Wellbeing, Diet, Exercise, Massage, Childbirth, Parenting, and Aging. (These sales run until Friday, July 27th!) 

Our summer hours:
Monday through Saturday, 9 to 4
Thursdays until 6
Sundays 10 to 2
