Return of the Snowman
Today's Snowman has been on, what the kids like to say, a radical sabbatical but we have returned from Maine, where snowmen are on everyone's mind. I was up in Bethel, Maine, home of the world's largest snowman scouting for the continuing snowman movie project, which is still progressing very nicely. Details soon!
Meanwhile, in Ogunquit, I had the great opportunity to visit the coolest store in Maine, The Herringbones Design Shop. I say this not because they sell signed copies of The History of the Snowman but because the store has the same sensibilities I enjoy (if you're familiar with my sister site, Smartass Ideas For the Home, you know what I mean....).
Owned by Judith Lee, the shop has unusual decorative items, art and books by Maine artists as well as shirts, furniture, collectibles and much more (check out the amazing decorative film reels behind the cashier). Herringbones is located at 309 Shore Road, a short walk from the very center of Ogunquit.
