Interior of Shaker Store, Sabbathday Lake

Contributed by United Society of Shakers

Description

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.
