Summer in Maine with Sarah’s Silks

Summer in Maine is a short, but sweet season that we Mainers look forward to all winter long. It’s a season to celebrate!

Our friends at Sarah’s Silks have created beautiful dress-ups and silk playthings for children to celebrate summer. Ideal for warm summer days, pure silk is nourishing to a child’s senses: lightweight and cool to the touch.

May you and your children enjoy these last, sweet weeks of summer!

Warmly,
