A fall trip to Wallingford’s Fruit House in Auburn is a Cute Potato family tradition, dating back to when DP was a wee lad. The space has changed over the years—there’s a big, backyard play area, a farm store brimming with toys and food gifts, and more cars in the parking lot.

Lots for Tots, with locations in Falmouth and Scarborough, is the place to find a treasure trove of costumes for babies, toddlers, and kids. On the day MP visited, she discovered everything from cozy Winnie the Pooh themed dress ups to a corduroy hobby horse costume.

Grandma Cookie Potato is one of a kind. One of the things we love most about GCP is her ability to rock accessories like striped Halloween socks and funky pumpkin earrings. She not only buys these accessories for herself, but outfits CP#1 and #2 with Halloween-inspired gear whenever she can.
Something tells us Grandma would love these adorable felted hair accessories from South Portland designer Shannon Hanley.

No, Lady Gaga isn’t coming to town, but if she were, MP is certain she’d be a fan of these adorable hand knit Monster pants from South Bristol mom, Susan Rice.
