A quirky gift store in the middle of nowhere is holding its annual Spring Show this weekend.
Sea Hag Soaps and Art Mercantile is celebrating its 20th anniversary tomorrow and Sunday with live music and free refreshments.
Sea Hag sells a wide array of works created by regional artists and artisans, including pottery, furniture, antiques, organic coffee, candles and artwork, both the whimsical and more serious.
Plus, owner Colleen Kane makes her own line of soaps, body lotions, bug spray and salves.
Sea Hag soaps come in 30 varieties and are made with either cocoa butter, goat’s milk or a vegan version.
Kane says she originally bought the old barn as an art studio for her metal-smithing and jewelry making.
But after inviting 12 other artists to her 1999 Christmas show, her future as a gallery and retail outlet was cemented.
Kane says, “Here, we have one-of-a-kind things. If they don’t buy it, they’re not going to see it again. It’s unique things, it’s not somethings that you see at a lot of department stores.”
The Spring Show runs from 10 to 5 each day with live music from 2 to 4.
Kane is looking to move her business to a smaller more manageable location and has put the barn and its property up for sale.
