We are a small (owner operated) business, located in Portland Maine. Our product focus is on small makers, be they local artists from Maine or elsewhere in the united states. Fun-fact; 98% of the brands we carry are women owned. We also offer Fair Trade products, as well as a selection of nationally / internationally recognized brands and chocolate, biscuits, crisps etc imported from Ireland and the United Kingdom. We offer custom options, and specialize in creating custom gift basket / gift box / care package gifts for individuals, corporate gifting and also for specific professional gifting occasions, such as; Home Closing Gifts for Realtor / Mortgage Broker clients.
We carefully curate every single item in-store / online and especially love to share details with you about the artist / maker / brand as we believe it is important to feel a connection to the items you choose for yourself, or to gift to loved ones.
