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.

You have planned the perfect destination wedding by the sea and what can be more picturesque than to frame the view with a lovingly handmade arch made by one of our shop owners, Cherie of Salty Girl and the Long Dog.  She creates custom driftwood wedding and events decor.  Large scale arch projects, driftwood wreaths, favors and more are part of her creative services offered.  Her artwork is found here at The Shops at Cape Neddick and she will happily mail-order for you too!

Wedding season is in full swing and The Shops at Cape Neddick is your one-stop destination to create your bridal registry or find just the perfect gift for any occasion from one of a dozen well curated shops.  You can find us open daily and we will enthusiastically greet our guests traveling near or far.  We love it when we become part of your traditional stop while in the area.  We love you even more when you invite your friends along too.  The more, the merrier!  Follow us on all of our social media channels to stay updated with our latest happenings.

 

Save the Date: April 19th

What could be more perfect than to combine shopping with a sip?… Shopping with friends?  YES, bring some!  Shopping any day ending in Y?  Why, of course!  Shopping where you ask?  Well you just load up your car with all of your besties and set it to autopilot to some of the best shopping around:

Visit The Shops at Cape Neddick (as often as possible) but if looking to sip with us we will treat you to some refreshments and a few nibbles from 5-8pm.  Get a head start on preparing your Mother’s Day wishlist or bridal registry or those general must haves!  Oh, the possibilities with so many shops under one roof!….

Sip and shop-2

Looking forward to hosting all of you lovelies!
