Jana is a local Artist - one of just a few Maine Glass Blowers. The process she uses is called lampworking, an old method of shaping rods of glass over an open flame. Some finished ornaments are hand - painted with a colored glaze that is fired on. Jana's husband, Jeff, helps her in her business.

Handcrafted Blown Glass

Dan & Deb are American Artists who make their own glass ornaments at a working temperature of 2100F. Each glass ball is individually handcrafted, and mouth blown, using no molds. The beautiful colors are achieved by incorporating natural elements and minerals in their process.

Our frosted glass balls are hand - painted by Joanne, an American Artist, who started painting glass balls in 1986 while she was in art school. Joanne signs each one of her handpainted creations, while we personalize each one free with names and a year.

Customer Testimonials

"I recently visited your "Ba Habaa" store and absolutely loved it! My sister and I are separated by about 3000 miles and have been exchanging ornaments for years. I love that I can personalize the ornaments for each year. Also, the staff at the store were of great help and packaged this year’s ornament to make my trip home and the Christmas trip to my sister. Thank you Christmas Spirit! You can count on my business!" Charmaine from NY.

"Thank you so much for making my Christmas shopping so easy this year! I remembered your ornaments from a long time ago when I was shopping in Bar Harbor, and when thinking about what to buy our family this year, I realized that these wonderful ornaments were the perfect gift. I know everyone will be happy with them. I love the fact that I could order them from my computer and have them shipped where they need to go without having to mail them myself :-) Merry Christmas!" Joey from ME.

"I just received the ornaments I ordered, and I am so pleased! I started an ornament collection for my children when they were born, and what I found at your site was so perfect for this year's addition! I will definitely return next year!" Laura from NC.

This time of year, Bar Harbor, and Acadia National Park are full of summer tourists from all over the world.

Of course, Christmas Spirit® has ornaments for all these activities, and more, as mementos that capture memories of your summer vacation - wherever it may be.
