2005 marks Eden Rising's 20th Anniversary in Bar Harbor on Cottage St. Our doors are open for the season and we are are looking forward this year to seeing old friends and to making new ones. Drop in and see us!

 Nestled in the foothills of Acadia National Park, Eden Rising has been open for business for over fifteen years. As of October 2000, we proudly announced the grand opening of our online store with an eclectic blend of gifts from the Far East to New England. Eden, Bar Harbor's original name, conjures idyllic & positive images and feelings. Rising, moreover, denotes ascending and improving. We at Eden Rising are therefore committed to offering gifts of abundance from around the world as reminders and instruments of serenity and joy.

Eden Rising is family run and open for business April through the New Year. Grandparents, parents, sisters, Mindy & John Image brothers, aunts, uncles, nieces & nephews all have a part in the workings of the store and in Eden Rising's well being.

During the cold Maine winter months purchases are made by sister and brother team Debra & Matthew. Traveling to far eastern lands such as Nepal, Thailand, India, Bali, & other future locations, Debra & Matthew meet with local families and choose gifts to send home. In March and April well-traveled crates of treasures arrive from afar and begin to fill the shelves and grace the walls of Eden Rising. Masks, animal carvings, didgeridoos, bell & dorji, drums, sweaters, dresses, chimes, Buddhas, jewelry, incense, candles, divas and much more create the blissful grounding atmosphere that ER is known for.

Local artisans including painters, potters, jewelers, writers, and musicians also display their work and add to the exceptionally creative and distinctive ambiance. Eden Rising is always filled with friendly and familiar faces. On any given day you can find locals  and visitors engaged in conversation or perhaps relaxing with a good book. Beautiful Music fills the air as people explore the store's many nooks and crannies. All are welcome to enjoy the peace and abundance that Eden Rising has to offer. We hope to see you soon.

Many Blessings,
From the Eden Rising Family
