Dear Mainely by Carr Family,
Mainely by Carr started as a family run wholesale business over 20 years ago. My mother, Dawn, my father, Ed, and I, supplied the former Christmas Spirit Shop in Bar Harbor, Maine. We quickly became their "number 1" artisans in sales and product volume. Sadly, Mom passed away in 2018. Dad, now at 89, still does all of the wood cutting for the ornaments as well as many of the wood carvings. I am a lifelong artisan, retired middle school teacher, and now devote more time to the things I love.
My father and I look forward to getting to know all of you through the process of personalizing ornaments for you and your loved ones.
