DIAS DE LOS MUERTOS
If you’ve come into the shop this week, you may have noticed our shrine!
October 31st – November 2nd are the Dias de los Muertos, when our departed loved ones come back to Earth to partake in some earthly delights.
This year we celebrated those we’ve lost, be they family members, pets, or folks slightly more well-known. Check out our Instagram feed for a video with more detail – we’re sure you’ll recognize some of those we remembered, as well as some of the earthly delights we provided for them!
HAVE YOU SEEN OUR NEW ACCENT WALLS?
“The largest lake reclamation project in New England”!
During the historic logging drives of Thoreau’s Northern Maine, countless ancient trees sank to the bottoms of lakes and rivers as they were sent South to be used for building ships and houses, not to mention for use in the famous paper mills of Maine.
Not only does the effort of dredging these beautiful timbers back to the surface help to restore the lake’s natural ecosystem, it also provides us with a unique product full of natural color variation and small organic “flaws” in the wood.
These historic logs are sliced into ultra-thin boards and given an adhesive backing for easy at-home application.
Stop by Home Remedies today to see samples in person, and learn more about this amazing Maine product!

Just follow the yellow brick road, or your GPS, to downtown Rockland, where you won’t find any lions or tigers or bears (oh, my), but you will find a theater full of fans who love the 1939 classic film as much as you do and want to sing along to every song, from “Over the Rainbow” to “If I Were King of the Forest.”
