Pemaquid, ME (June 27, 2013) After a year and a half of work, The Good Supply artisan store opens the doors of its 150 year-old barn for the 2013 season on Friday, July 5th. Creatively curated housewares and handmade gifts by local artisans are sure to win over even the most discerning shopper. This year, the store showcases the wares of 30 artisans - with more in the pipeline - including newcomers Alex Beaudet and his elegant French-style rolling pins as well as Kate Mess and her cleverly-designed enameled jewelry.
Company founder and artisan Catherine Walton and her husband Karl McLetchie bought their property with designs to renovate the barn to house The Good Supply storefront. Two holes in the roof and a mostly rotted sill didn’t obscure their vision of the space and its potential to serve as a gathering point for local artisans and those who would like to support their craft.
Using two timber-framing books printed in the 1970s, the couple set to work to refurbish the three-story, rustic space. The resulting effect is one in which the patchwork of a century of repairs creates interest. Walton says, “Our main hope is that the handwork done in the barn will complement the fine local objects displayed within its walls.”
Beginning July 5th, The Good Supply will resume its normal business hours. The grand reopening will be celebrated through the weekend with refreshments, special offers, and a raffle. Please stop by to shop and check out the new space.
Founded in 2012, The Good Supply is dedicated to cultivating creativity and community by supporting those who make by hand. The business storefront is located in The Good Supply barn at 2106 Bristol Road in Pemaquid Falls, Maine. Storefront hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Artisan wares can also be viewed and purchased online at www.thegoodsupply.org.
