SNUG HARBOR FARM + HIDDEN POND

On Tuesday we took a road trip to Kennebunk, Maine to visit one of our favorite places, Snug Harbor Farm. We like to visit every few months to see how the farm changes with the seasons and to check out what new plants are growing. It's such a magical place and I feel like every time we go I find something new I didn't see the last time. We stocked up on succulents & topiaries for the shop and grabbed some things for ourselves because we just couldn't help it. If you've never been I highly suggest planning a road trip there soon!

After we were done exploring Snug Harbor we drove through downtown Kennebunkport to another one of our favorites spots in town, Hidden Pond. This is a luxury resort like I've never seen been. It's name definitely does it justice because you can very easily drive right by its entrance it's so secrete. As you make your way down the long driveway, through the woods, you pass an adorable little shop, Provisions, and the resorts organic farm and bicycle hut where guests can borrow their adorable beach cruisers. A little further down you come into the cabins. Each one as unique & enchanting as the next with a stylish guest building in the middle where you can relax in cabanas by the pool, play lawn games or roast marshmallows in the fire pit. Just around the corner is the resorts famed restaurant, Earth. This is one of the most beautiful restaurants I have ever seen. The attention to detail was impeccable, right down to the drink menu and small organic farm behind the building where guests can pluck ripe, delicious tomatoes right from the vine. The restaurant is only open for dinner so during the day guests can lounge poolside at the second pool located right next to Earth, sip cocktails from the outdoor "farm bar" and nosh on sandwiches from Provisions. Heaven on (or should I say at) Earth.

Welcome to the new Sage Market + Design!

So many exciting things have been happening over here at Sage! In June, we re-opened in our new location at 58 Merrimac St. in Horton's Yard next to our great new neighbors Get In Shape for Women and Interlocks! We couldn't be happier with our new home. We have the room we need (let's face it, we outgrew our old space fast!) and we are able to bring in a lot more beautiful items for our clients to see. We have the most amazing view of the river and boatyard (and rumor has it the location of the new hotel...). We have a separate workspace where we can work on our florals and plantings without the whole store looking like a hot-mess while we prep for a wedding. Everyone has been so supportive & the response to the new shop has been overwhelming! It's so amazing to hear people say such great things about our new home!

Also this summer we launched our new website! The very talented & sweet Becky from Salty Anchor Design (www.saltyanchordesign.com) is the creative behind our new site. As luck would have it Becky came into our old shop one day while I was there & mentioned what she does and how her business can help ours (and this just happened to come at a time when we were talking about giving our site an over-haul). A few months later, we reconnected with Becky and viola! The new site perfectly reflects where Sage is now compared to three years ago. Before our website was basically just an online shop (made before we opened in Newburyport) but now that we have our brick & mortar, our site can more reflect our work with our amazing clients! Thank you Becky!

And lastly, this blog is new to us too! Follow along with us as we continue to grow Sage & see where our business adventure takes us!
