Handmade soap is a gift everyone appreciates and our Island Soap Gift Sets are a great way to celebrate, honor and thank those you care about.
For the holidays, we have Gift Boxes of our most popular soap items as well as three "Maine Holiday Coastal Collection" Gift Boxes which include items that are handmade in the homes of local artisans who live in our neck of the woods. I know them all personally and have used their products in my own home. I'm so excited to introduce you to them!

Eggemoggin Salt Works is a mother and son team which grew out of a desire to let a little bit of Maine's 'back-to-basics' way of life go home with the people who visit from away. Located on the eastern side of Penobscot Bay between the mainland and the islands that make up Deer Isle, the “Reach” is an 8 mile long, narrow channel of water flanked by granite, Ellsworth schist, spruce trees and hardwoods. The undeveloped shores of the area mean the water is free of pollution and contaminants. This sea water is collected at high tide then strained and boiled to a super saturated brine which is then transferred to baking trays to complete the transformation into this pure sea salt. Each gift box includes one 1oz jar each of Original Sea Salt and Herbes de Provence custom blend. For more info you may visit www.eggemogginsaltworks.com
Brooklin Candy Company's owner Blossom Kravitz makes her amazing chocolate confections in her home in Brooklin, Maine.

Jean Goodwin, a Maine native, was inspired by nature and the ocean while growing up on Mt Desert Island, home to Acadia National Park. With influences from an outer island lifestyle, Jean learned early on to be creative with what surrounded her. She has many talents but painting is her passion. She turns beach worn pottery shards, which have been smoothed and washed by the sea, into small works of art. Each Beach Shard Ornament is unique and one of a kind and includes either a hand painted evergreen tree, snowman or lighthouse design. I have one of her ornaments on my tree and I just adore it! Jean may be reached at 207-244-5782
