A Week in Maine

We're headed to Maine for a week and I can't wait!! A much needed vacation! My husband has never been, so my family is excited to show him two of our favorite places — Nantucket and Kennebunkport!

We're also calling it a business trip since we're visiting my aunt, Beverly Bangs, who owns a fabulous 10,000 sq. ft. antique store in Kennebunkport, Maine, Antiques on Nine. If you're ever in Kennebunkport, you must stop by! This store is amazing and Barbara Bush is regular :) It's full of American and European furniture, paintings, decorative items, architectural elements and garden accessories!

The beauty of it is that we're bartering — I'm designing her website, and in return, I get to pick out a piece of furniture. I really want a bar similar to this one that would be perfect in our kitchen. I found this piece on Molly Frey's website years ago, and found out later it is from Antiques on Nine!  Can't wait to post pictures of our trip, and hopefully my antique treasure too!




  1. I can't wait to hear all about your trip!! Those are two of my favorite spots!!! When i first opened my shop we went up the East Coast and stayed in several places in being Kennebunkport!!! The White Barn Inn and another bed and breakfast on another trip and I can't remember the name of it!!! We had so much fun antiquing!!! Let me hear all about your treasures!!!

  2. Nantucket is on my list of places to go! I know it is quite gorgeous! I can't wait to see pics! Have a great weekend!
