See what we did there? We kinda smooshed our great state’s nickname and slogan into one because this is a post all about our love of summer in Maine and Maine goods… and a couple not-Maine things, too. If I had to make an uneducated guess, I’d say that lots of people are probably packing their bags right now to come and enjoy some of that classic Maine summer you hear about! With the 4th of July coming up this weekend the seaside and lakesides will be brimming with summer-loving people enjoying some R&R and leaving their suits and work at home. When we’re packing for a weekend away (or longer, if we’re lucky!) comfort is a big consideration- after all, time off is supposed to be a little luxurious, right? Here are some of our favorite pieces, mostly by Maine crafters and artisans, that we always bring along for a lazy day of walking the beach and dangling our feet off the dock.
It’s not a vacation morning if it doesn’t start with and big cup of coffee, amiright? The gorgeous mugs by Camden Co. are the perfect size for wrapping two hands around to breathe in that to-die-for morning aroma of some of Portland’s finest Tandem coffee on a walk down to the shore or in the woods. We’d safely assert that this is a sturdy mug, perfect for low-impact adventure as long as your palms don’t get too sweaty. But don’t let us tell you what to do- it’s your time off! Wherever you go and whatever you bring, though, we bet it’ll fit nicely in a Wave Weekender! 😉
Here’s to the upcoming long weekend! Blair + Hayley
