#7: Strong Women Tea Towels
On September 18, 2020 the world lost an extraordinary woman: Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Ginsburg was not simply a legal legend; she was the embodiment of civility, commitment, compassion and common sense. She is one of three strong women we have available: RBG, Greta Thunberg (18-year-old climate change acrtivist) and Kamala Harris (our first female vice president). Harris is not yet available online, but call our shops and we can process your order over the phone!

Not surprised these little goodies made it onto the list. Whether it’s sending a box to share the sweet, summery taste of Maine with family and friends, or treating yourself to satisfy that sweet tooth, you just can’t go wrong with Chocolate Covered Blueberries…admit it, your mouth is already watering.
#5: Maple Pepper
Highland Foods made its first batch of Maple Pepper in a country kitchen in Northern New England over 30 years ago. They combined sweet maple sugar with savory black pepper and sea salt to create an exciting seasoning–and clearly it’s one of your faves! Dry rub or marinate meats and poultry, shake on seafood and vegetables, and liven up popcorn, soups, salads and sandwiches. Maple Pepper is pure and simple. Try it once, you’ll come back for more!
#4: Patamania Hoodie
Did anyone else live in sweats during quarantine? Maybe you realized, if you were going to be wearing a sweatshirt/sweatpants combo, maybe it was time for an upgrade? Especially to look, ahem, presentable on those Zoom calls. Of all our apparel, the Patamania Hoodie was your favorite! Incredibly soft, this sweatshirt features a colorful, retro design symbolizing Maine’s beautiful coastline and mountains. Once you put it on, it’ll be difficult to want to take it off.
#2: Maine Bicentennial Stemless Wine Glass
A toast to 200 years! These stemless wine glasses are gorgeous. Intricately etched, they celebrate Maine’s 200 years of statehood. A pair of these along with a pair of the pint glasses, and you’re set for any occasion!
#3: Garden Fresh Design Flour Sack Towels
These towels are a combination of beautiful, cheerful, and most importantly USEFUL. If you are looking for that perfect lil’ something for a housewarming, birthday, anniversary, or a “just because” gift, take a peek at our selection of tea towels. They’ll add a pop of color and design to any home–use them in the kitchen to dry dishes or in the bathroom as hand towels. They are super absorbent and lint-free, so get ready to toss your old ones out!
#1: Pleated Maine Mask
Of course!! 2020 brought with it new protocols, new routines and most importantly new priorities! As you leave your house, the mantra of “phone, keys, wallet” has a new addition: MASK! Some folks have it hanging from the rearview mirror while others keep it by the doorway key hook. What began as a medical mask shortage has turned into reusable fabric masks…in a multitude of colors, patterns and styles! Keep each other safe and continue to mask up–and if you’re in need of a new one, take a look at Lisa-Marie’s Pleated Maine Mask selection! Similar style to the medical-grade pleated masks, these are made of 100% reversible cotton and have adjustable ear loops for extra comfort.
