There are a number of good things happening in the City of Eastport, Maine, including several that are being driven by progressive women from the area. Together they have developed properties and businesses that are surviving the test of time. Major developments still exist that will continue to impact the positive growth of the community and stimulate others to add their creativity to the mix.
As they themselves say:
The Commons is a group, a building, a dream. Nine area women have joined their energy and resources to restore an historic building on Eastport’s waterfront. In The Shop at The Commons, we offer the work of 90+ fine artists and artisans for sale: burl bowls, hand-knit sweaters, botanical paintings, original jewelry, felted garments, handmade paper note cards, wildlife paintings, and so much more. On the second floor, two glorious fully-furnished two-bedroom seaside vacation rentals are available by the week between June and October. From November to May, our vacation rentals are ideal for sabbaticals, and may be rented by the week or the month. In addition, we have a classroom/ studio/conference room available for rent by the day.
Come and visit The Shop at The Commons, take in the wonderful view from the deck, and share in our dream.
