We had a special visit today from a leading group in craft, Maine Crafts Association board of directors. They had their annual board retreat in Ellsworth. Thanks guys for stopping by our shop and choosing Ellsworth as your planning spot for what’s to come on the Maine Craft scene for 2019!
This piece is only one of an absolutely fabulous collection of jewelry from artist @marugenia2 . Her work is a bold representation of wearable craft. Each piece has a childlike playfulness and begs to be touched and tried on. Stop by the shop tomorrow, we are open from 11-6
We have waited far too long to share these custom made @fieldnotesbrand leather covers from @stitch.and.rivet so many of you out there may not know about the original state of Maine flag but here it is and quite frankly we like it more from a simplicity stand point - a true depiction of the Maine we know and love. We are closed for Sunday/Monday but reopen Tuesday 11-6

Biggest congrats to @emilyshafferstudio for being this years @halsteadbead Grant recipient.

We thought it was high time to get that sign installed. 🎩’s off to the guy who makes ALL the magic happen @david1146 one final addition to the face of the building remaining out door lighting! If you look super close you’ll see the electric ⚡️ wires are all pulled and neatly awaiting the perfect 👌 fixture install. Still shopping 🛒 but please if you have any recommendation give us a holla, we would love to hear your ideas!

Join us for our second Guest Artist Appearance of the season, @loziloo Wednesday August 29th from 4 -7 "I am not interested in re-creating the "likeness" of these specimens in my work. Instead, I am interested in sustaining the fleeting beauty found in nature. I am the artist as alchemist; transforming organic material directly into precious metal; breathing new life into organic specimens that would otherwise decay." -Alex Lozier
Won’t you join us? We would love to show you around our new space, celebrate our new forever home and our undying support of makers and their craft! This Thursday night at 6 State Street!
A week ago we opened our third floor @airbnb apt. “Downtown Ellsworth near Acadia” while it’s not perfectly renovated YET, (2020 for sure) it’s a clean space that’s sparsely decorated with items we LOVE, gorgeous views of the Union River and fabulous food/ Beer really near by. If you come to stay with us we encourage you to eat at Serendib and drink @fogtownbrewing both places are locally owned and owner operated. Our little city 🌃 is exploding with fabulous artists and creativity, we want to share our picks with you.
Join us for our first trunk show/ Guest Artist Appearance in our new location. Come meet Rachel Sherman and hear the inspiration behind her work.
With these last few weeks of summer flying by we thought putting in our semi annual order of @blackwing supplies was in order. We are so happy we did as they are flying off our shelves along with these DC made leather pencil cases from @stitch.and.rivet. All their leathers come from a tannery right here in Maine! Pop by the shop and check out some of the other handmade back to school items we have in stock. Remember this weekend is our annual trunk show with artist @malaguetahandmade on Saturday from 11 -6. #contemporarycraft #trunkshow #guestartistappearence #clothing #contemporaryclothing #maine #philly #stitchandrivet #blackwing #pencil #sharpener #backtoschool #endofsummer
