MAINE Things Monday

Happy Monday: This is the first of many ‘Maine Things Monday’ posts to come!  There is much to love and discover about Maine, and all that we have here, and I am eager to share it with you. In fact, I believe this is as much for me as it is for you.

Maine Maple Syrup

There have been some fun happenings around Maine lately, mostly to do with maple syrup.  Every March tons of  sugarhouses celebrate the tradition of making maple syrup.  They open up their operations to the public and share with us their passion for the art of tapping maple trees and making sweet syrup on what we call “Maine Maple Sunday.” It’s not only larger sugarhouses making syrup: lots of Mainers tap their own trees, too.

In our lovely city by the bay there are always hip happenings…and this one’s good:

Portland Flea-for-All

In Portland there is a Flea-for-All opening next month! It’s genius and has me very excited!  Vendors of various types {designers, sellers, artists, makers, i.e. interesting & talented folks} will set up shop in one large space. Portland can’t help but be so cool!  Situated near Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, and Deering Oaks Park where the Saturday Farmer’s Market takes place {after May 1st} will surely help make the Flea-for-All a regular stop on a weekend.  I can’t wait to score some furniture & whatnot for our house!

p.s. Now that iced tea & lemonade & camping season is upon us, I want this.
