    I only saw three places in central Maine. We do get forgotten we call this the other Maine.

    Check out Soll’s Antiques on Facebook.. in Canaan, Maine. We actually got a placement many years ago.

    The grainery in Skowhegan

    River Roads Gallery, Local art, jewelry, wood, knitted item etc etc.

    I was wondering why NOWETAH’s Indian Store & Museum was not listed in the Lakes & Mountains Region! It is a one-of-a-kind INCREDIBLE collection of Native Art you will never see anywhere else! To me, this is a unbelievable oversight! Your writers had to drive right by it to go from Carrabassett Valley to Farmington. I am guessing they never even stopped to see what was there.

    I am looking for a recent article on Hallowell, ME and the music scene there. Did I dream it?
