Walked into this charming store on our recent visit to Bar Harbor. Beautiful stained glass sun catchers but beware of the store proprietor; I tried to converse with him and make small chat and boy was he a nasty grumpy man! Makes you want to...More

I highly recommend innocently taking a picture of the suncatchers. The owner's reaction is grade A entertainment. No matter how sincerely you apologize, he'll curse at you and kick you out of the store. Also, his suncatchers are ugly and outrageously expensive.

Going in, the store is amazing. The clothing and gifts are really a sight to be behold. Unfortunately, as many have noted, the service leaves a great deal to be desired. My wife bought a shirt here and decided later it was mislabeled. After I...More

The gentleman working the store was extremely rude. When asking the price of an item, he told me that I might be able to afford this smaller one. It took me 4 times asking how much the one i wanted was to get an answer....More

Same thing happened to us. My husband was taking a picture of me in the store and the man behind the counter (the owner?) yelled at him, saying "no pictures" It's fine if he has a no picture policy but he was incredibly rude. I...More
