Rock Paper Scissors

Last week, Meredith mentioned one of our favorite places to grab a bite to eat in Wiscasset, and this week, I’m delighted to follow that post with quite possibly one of our favorite shops in the entire Midcoast region – Rock Paper Scissors (sorry, no website).

If you’re ever driving through, or staying in Wiscasset, and don’t take the time to get lost in this fantastic shop of cards, stationery, gifts, and just general awesome miscellany, you’re completely missing out. The collection of products that owner Erika Soule has curated is simply fantastic, and every nook and cranny of the shop is covered with it (she consolidated her other store, Smitten, into the space).  Every time we visit the shop, I see Mere’s eyes grow with each item we see, and this past visit, I made-out like a birthday bandit with an excellent Green Moss candle from Izola and a Lamy Scribble pencil.  We even added some matching, recycled glass wine glasses to our collection.  You’ll find everything you didn’t know you needed, and a cooler version of so many things you already have.  I challenge you to drop in and not find something you want to leave with.

Meredith and I are headed up the coast again soon, and I guarantee that we’ll be dropping in to both Rock Paper Scissors and Treats on our way – it’s become a Midcoast tradition.

  1. Hello!! I would like to know how to purchase your striped straws and other party supplies to carry in my shop in Alabama. Do you have a website?

    Thanks!

  2. We come to Maine once a year but no trip to Mid-Coast is complete without stopping at ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS. We are pen and paper lovers and we always find new delights on a table or shelf at RP&S. Our winter writing on this shop’s fine stationery and note cards always brings a positive response from our correspondents. We love this store and every year return home with a treasure trove of pens, paper, notebooks, wrapping paper and gifts we hope will last until our next visit.

    ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS is a must-stop no matter where you are headed.

  3. [...] Last Thursday Michael and I made the trip down to one of our favorite New England towns, Newport, RI, for yet another wedding! When we weren’t shooting various parts of the wedding celebration, we were trying to spend as much time at our beautiful inn as possible. (You’ll see why we wanted to spend every second possible at the lovely Castle Hill Inn when we post the photos soon!) Michael left for a work trip in San Diego the day after the wedding, while I made my way up the coast of Maine for another wedding on Mount Desert Island. After two very late nights and plenty of driving & shooting, I was excited to have a very low-key Sunday morning, and even had the chance to visit my favorite shop dog at one of my favorite stores in Maine!

  4. This is the “ooh and ahh” store that we stop in several times a year. You really must check it out. Love the soft colors of merchandise and diverse selection of cards. Art supplies too!
