  • My favorite place by far in Bar Harbor. The owner and his son are always friendly, the shop always has such perfectly curated collections for purchase. It's so perfectly whimsical! There's a bit of something for pretty much everyone. My favorite surprise came last year, when I discovered that they now have traveler's notebooks, refills, and now fountain pens and inks to pair with them! I look forward to stopping in every year!
  • This is my favorite shop in Bar Harbor, hands down. The merchandise is always unique and have made for some fabulous gifts. The owners and staff are the nicest people you'll ever find, treating you as though they're inviting you straight into their home.
  • Just wonderful! Check out the Spiritiles, you won't be disappointed. They're lovely, something for everyone.
  • Great place to find the unique and strange, last time I was in they seemed to be changing into more of a art shop but I hope they can keep the candy and smaller stuff that makes it such a unique place. Over all worth the stop.
  • Unique gift items. Great customer service. Would recommend for shopping in the area.
