Remember how great it was to sit back and relax at the beach during those sunny summer days? Have a friend who is retired or planning a vacation at the beach? Make your most relaxing experience a memory with our beach theme ornaments, personalized free with names, occasion and a date.


Jessica, one of our young customers, proudly displays the Vacation Activity Ornament she and her family built in our Bar Harbor Shop. First, they selected a water and mountains background for their recent kayaking adventure. Then, they chose 2 birds, 4 kayaks, and 4 people faces from among hundreds of theme pieces available. Finally, we glued the 10 pieces to the background and personalized the ornament with their names and title.

You, too, can build your own vacation theme ornament when you come to our Bar Harbor Shop, or you can choose from one of our many creations on our Website under Vacation Ornaments. Hope you had a great summer vacation!


Remember your special summer vacation with an ornament that reminds you of the wonderful time you had, whether you were in search of lighthouses, went camping or to the beach, hiked every trail, or biked every road. Whatever style of vacation you took, laid back and relaxed, or action packed, we have the right ornament to rekindle the memory for years to come.


Do you have a special student in your life starting school or changing schools this year? Or a special teacher you would like to acknowledge? Why not give them a memento that will last a lifetime reminding them of how special they are to you. We have many new ornaments for students and teachers this year.

Customer Testimonials

"Hard to believe I am ahead of the game for Christmas. Thanks for the free shipping email, it helped me get started early. Hope you are having a nice summer." Susie from LA

"We have been visiting Bar Harbor for over 15 years now. Our children are getting older and we are thrilled when they can join us on any of our adventures in Bar Harbor. For the last 3 trips we have stopped in to create a unique memory plaque at your shop. Each is displayed in our fifth wheel camper and is something special to all of us. We will be visiting again in August, and will again stop in to create another memory plaque to commemorate this year's visit. Thank you for our wonderful memory wall, we look forward to watching it grow." Diane from Maine

"We were in your shop in June and fell in love with all your wonderful ornaments!. I wished that I had gotten more, and now I can through your web site! Thank you." Toni from CA

Island Update

As summer visitors leave Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, fall visitors arrive in equal numbers to enjoy our busy fall foliage season. September is one of the most beautiful months in Maine with its warm, sunny days and cool, crisp nights. Bus tours and cruise ships arrive almost every day bringing thousands of visitors to join those who have arrived by car, motorcycle, or RV. Fall foliage in the park is spectacular, usually peaking in late September or early October. As fall days get shorter, there are plenty of activities to fill them up, right through the end of October.
