Salt Bay Art Supply in Damariscotta invites adults to come to the shop to make valentines on Thursdays, Feb. 1 and 8 during business hours, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Blank cards, a variety of papers, rubber stamps, and embellishments will be provided at a cost of $5 for two cards with envelopes. The price includes assistance and advice from the in-store card maker. The proceeds from this activity will go to the Lincoln County Animal Shelter in Edgecomb.
“Kids get to make valentines at school or day care, but the grown-ups get left out,” said store owner Carol Jaeger. “It’s not the biggest holiday of the year, but it’s one of the nicest. I thought this would be fun.”
Adults may create their own designs using the materials provided or may use one of the examples on display for inspiration. The activity is open to people of high school age and up. Participants are not required to sign up, just show up. For more information, stop by Salt Bay Art Supply, at 458 Main St. in Damariscotta, or call 563-8377.
