Catering to the tourist traffic associated with the Poland Spring Hotel several miles to the north, the Shaker Store at Sabbathday Lake featured a full line of handmade goods.

Among the most noteworthy wares on display are, left to right: the Shaker Cloak, horsehair brushes, pincushions, oval carriers, poplar boxes and the costumed doll.

Notice the marble-topped table, which appears as a prop.
