Mainely by Carr's Story

Mainely by Carr started as a family run wholesale business over 25 years ago. My mother, Dawn, 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 and Dad in 2023.   

I am a lifelong artisan, Maine resident, retired middle school teacher, and now devote more time to the things I love designing, woodworking and hand painting.  The products I create are individually hand painted making each of them truly unique.  

I look forward to getting to know all of you through creating speciality products  for you, your family and your friends.
