Main Street Ellsworth has a new boutique focused on handmade items.
Sunshine & Dixie, at 194 Main St., opened last fall.
Handmade home décor, gifts and consignment items are the focus of the shop, which belongs to Amy M. Holler and Gail Brown.
We fell in love with rings and pendants featuring miniature hand-embroidered flower bouquets. Those each cost $25 and were created by Kiki Rose Embroidery. We are fascinated by the beauty of these pieces as well as how strong Kiki’s eyesight must be.
Boxes of felted donuts made by Teela Sprinkles also were fun.
We were excited to find made in Maine cosmetics and nail polish free of chemicals among the offerings. Those are by Krucial Cosmetics, which is based in Portland.
The shop has ties, bows and bandanas for your furbabies as well.
But, Sunshine & Dixie also has furniture, kitchen linens and brightly colored dishes by MLP Pottery.
Holler said the shop currently is carrying items from more than 30 vendors.
Sunshine & Dixie is open Wednesday-Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
