As the summer of 2018  comes to a close, it is fun to think back on all the fun times we had during the warm months of July and August.  A big thank you to our guests who spent time in the store helping to make memories for the visitors of Ogunquit. 

Our annual visit from Ed Shankman was a huge success on July 3rd.  As usual his hit books "I met a moose in Maine" and "When a lobster buys a bathrobe" flew out the door!

We had the pleasure of having Captain Jay visit the store on July 20th along with his sidekick Tiki the parrot.  Captain Jay entertained the young and the young at heart by making balloon swords, signing his delightful book "Captain Jay and the misfit crew" and being photographed with tiki!

The Center for Wildlife spent time in the store on July 25th. We were graced by a CFW educator and animal ambassadors.The visitors of Ogunquit learned about their important work treating injured and orphaned wildlife. 

Along with our guests, we had such fun with all our customers too! It was such fun showing and talking about all the new items in the store. Our book section has grown and includes New York Best Sellers.  Lego continues to be a draw especially with the new items such as Jurassic Park and Harry Potter sets. We now have an even larger game and science section.
