The Cute Potato kids are growing up fast, and with each passing year, MP finds it more challenging to find a toy or game they’ll use again and again. For ideas, MP enlisted the help of toy expert Anita Demetropoulos, the owner of Island Treasure Toys. Her toy store, which began as a home business in 2001, has expanded to three locations over the years. Anita’s warm and welcoming shops in Yarmouth, Freeport, and Bath are favorites among parents for quality toys and games. With nearly 16 years of experience, Anita has valuable advice to offer when it comes to gift-giving.

What’s not to love about a day devoted to local toy stores? One of our favorite shops, Rainbow Toys in Falmouth, is hosting a daylong event this Saturday to celebrate! The lovely staff promises all kinds of free fun for kids. There will be arts and crafts, face painting, and a giant outdoor game of chess.

The store is also raffling off a Rainbow Loom and bands (which are popular in the CP household these days), a Star Wars Lego set, books, stuffed animals, and craft kits from Alex Toys.

 

If you’re not near to Rainbow Toys, there are many independent toy shops throughout Maine: Island Treasure Toys, Planet Toys, Stone Soup, Out on a Whimsey, Percy’s Burrow, Bella Luna Toys, Treehouse Toys, and more. To find a toy store near your town, try this handy link.

Summer is fleeting. MP wishes the family could have more time to enjoy the season before school, schedules, and big projects, like moving into a new house, became the focus of our days. But a girl can pretend, right? With that idea in mind, we visited Dot’s Ice Cream Shop in Bath.

Note: Love for Lemons Co. is now Good Natured Brand.

The first thing that drew MP to Love for Lemons Co. cleaning products was the beautiful packaging. Owner Kate Perrin is thoughtful about every aspect of her brand and it shows in the details. Kate creates handmade, chemical free cleaning supplies out of her home in Bath. After checking out Kate’s natural products at the Yarmouth Farmers’ Market, MP was certain Cute Potato’s readers would enjoy Love for Lemons Co. Kate was kind enough to lend MP some of her products to try.

While at the SEA Holiday Art Sale in Portland last weekend, MP had the pleasure of shopping Yarn & Cloth Clothiers. Owner Melissa Sailer, a mother of two boys and talented textile designer, creates beautiful children’s clothing using vintage inspired fabrics, fun patterns, and vibrant colors.

MP was thrilled to discover Yarn & Cloth clothing and accessories. Melissa’s super cute buffalo plaid skirt is perfect for the holidays.

A fun skirt to wear with leggings or tights.
