THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO ATTENDED OUR HOLIDAY PARTY!
The Annual Home Remedies Kick Off to the Holidays was a great success again this year!
We saw many familiar faces, as well as several new ones! We really enjoy hearing the stories of how people just stumbled upon us for the first time, or of how they’ve made this gathering their own tradition, and come back to celebrate with us each year!
We also loved hosting our special guests; artisans from Wildwood Oyster Co. and Amphitrite (both local, women-owned/operated, and available here at HR!), as well as our friend Andrew, representing Dash & Albert rugs!
Our signature door prizes were a big hit again this year! We pull carefully selected goodies from around the store, and ding a bell as we draw names every half hour! There is always great anticipation as folks wait to see if their name is called!
We offered 20% off on everything in the store all night long, to help kick-off the holidays!
Thank you to all who made it out this year, from our dapper Home Remedies family!
It is always an honor to see so many of our friends who come out in support of local business!
THINGS TO DO IN MAINE THIS WEEKEND:
4 to 9 p.m. Thursdays to Sundays. Through Dec. 31. Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, 132 Botanical Gardens Drive, Boothbay, $14, $12 seniors, $8 children, free for under 3, $36 for family (two adults and two children). mainegardens.org
And just like that, it’s Gardens Aglow time at Coast Maine Botanical Gardens.
This is the most magical and enchanting walk you can take this holiday season, and it opens this week. You’ll make your way through the many acres of gardens and take in dramatic displays of color from hundreds of thousands of lights strung, well, just about everywhere. Music will be pouring out of strategically placed speakers, and you’ll think you’re in a dream as you take it all in. Be sure to purchase tickets in advance to guarantee entry.
Gardens Aglow runs through New Year’s Eve, closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve.
