Mother’s Day Extravaganza Weekend!

Happy Mother’s Day to all! There is no greater joy or blessing than to mother a child!  Motherhood may not have been bestowed on everyone in the usual fashion as some of you may play a maternal role to a special someone.  We celebrate all of you.  Some of you may find Mother’s Day difficult to bear if you have suffered the loss of a child or a mother so please know you are in our prayers daily!  Life is filled with both joy and heartbreak at times but most important is to experience relationships.  We at The Shops at Cape Neddick feel extremely blessed to share our “home” with our customers.  We have many dedicated regular customers as well as people who newly discover us from near and far.  We couldn’t be more grateful for your support.

In an effort to pay it forward we have planned an entire weekend of activities for you. Our displays are in celebration of mom.  You will notice that each shop has a distinct style specific to each of our shop owner’s passion for decor.  We offer a wide range of artisan handmade items, specialty foods, jewelry, apparel, furniture, antiques and workshops to transform your furniture with our Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® line of products.  We truly offer something for everyone!  Please stop by to visit our neighbors as well.  Attached to our building is The Ice Cream House and downstairs you will find The Quilt Shop.

Pictured below are two of our shop owners, Linda and Sherry busily arranging plants in beautiful containers.  We are always at the ready for your gifting needs!  The Spring Bloom sale will continue all weekend.  We have countless containers filled with beautiful   fresh blooms for outside as well as beautiful houseplants.
