Show Description: Celebrating the seashore and coastline of Maine in the summer is a part of the everyday life here in York. We are looking for artisans that highlight the Maine coastal beauty in some way, also items that are personally hand crafted, and may also be appealing to a tourist or traveler as a unique souvenir of Maine.
