Santa is taking his vacation with us in Bar Harbor this year, and in honor of his visit, we have a wide variety of Santa ornaments including this favorite of Santa himself relaxing and having fun in the sun. See our entire collection of Santas for the perfect Santa for any season.


Judi, a self-taught Maine artist, began painting in 1962. One night each week, she would get together with friends and paint ceramics. Gradually, she spent more time painting and enjoying it. In 1980, she quit her day job, and started her own business, selling her work and teaching art classes. Judi hopes her Santas bring you as much joy as they have for her over many years.

For the first time in history, Santa Claus shares his deepest beliefs about Christmas in a book. Here he reveals the true story of his origins, shares his favorite Christmas memories, explains five ways to have a more joyful Christmas, and reflects on what Christmas means to him. Santa also tells us secrets about his home in the North Pole, about Mrs. Claus, about his workshop, the elves, the reindeer, and more. He reveals his roots in the story of Saint Nicholas, for whom Christmas would always be a celebration of "the birth of the boy child in Bethlehem so very long ago." But Santa also wants to remain the symbol of all that is best and most joyful about the Holiday Season for people of all philosophical and religious persuasions. This wonderful book is his Christmas gift to all of us.

Customer Testimonials

"I was just surfing for ornaments and ran across this site. I was impressed, so I bought two to just check out the site. The ornaments are wonderful and the shipping time is unbelievable. Now here I am back for more. Keep up the great work!" Linda from California.

"My family and I were in your shop last October. When I got back home with my ornaments my whole office staff was envious.... until I showed them your website! As good as your website is, it just cannot convey the beauty or quality of your ornaments, they are just wonderful! Luckily I had ornaments to share and we ordered a ton more! Here we are again getting close and I have to think of what else I can order. Keep up the great work and much success!" Lynda, Danna and the staff from Florida.

"My grandparents started my "Christmas Spirit Shop" ornament collection over 10 years ago. This year is going to be the first in my new home with my fiance and our 2 dogs... I couldn't resist adding to the collection early this year. Thank you for all the memories!" Andrea from Indiana.

Island Update

Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are bustling with summer visitors enjoying everything our unique island has to offer - towering cliffs, quiet coves, a spectacular sand beach, and thousands of acres of unspoiled forests. You can hike the many trails, some for the serious hiker, and others just right for a leisurely stroll. You can bike the carriage roads, or paddle the lakes and coastlines. In the middle of it all is beautiful Bar Harbor - a seaside resort with unique village shops, great restaurant choices, lodging establishments of all kinds, and ocean adventures including sunset sailboat cruises, whale watching trips, and a ferry across the bay to Winter Harbor and some of the best of Acadia National Park's rocky coastline - perfect for picnicking on a warm sunny day.
