“Christmas Spirit” Story
We've always loved Christmas - so much, that we were married on Christmas Eve! On every vacation, though, we'd look for Christmas shops featuring traditional, one-of-a-kind American craftsmanship, and find only mass-produced imports. In 1990, we finally quit our corporate jobs and moved to Bar Harbor, Maine to open the Christmas shop we'd always wanted to find. Our shop is dedicated to those who want to capture the spirit of Christmas with unique, handcrafted gifts, all made by American artists.
