Aug 09, 2018

Searsport — Dean Bennett, Searsport's economic development director, announced that the town has officially welcomed two new enterprises to the town's business community:  Dennis Raleigh Antiques and Folk Art, and Guys and Dolls Barber and Beauty Lounge.

Raleigh Antiques

Dennis Raleigh's newly built gallery is housed in an addition to Pumpkin Patch Antiques at 15 S. Main St. Town officials held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new shop July 30.

Folk art, weather vanes, decoys and game boards are just some of the items you will find in Raleigh's studio. 

The Raleigh and Pumpkin Patch shops, whose owners have a combined 97 years in the antiques business, offer an extensive selection of 18th and 19th century furniture, hooked rugs, fine art, trade signs and accessories.

Dennis Raleigh Antiques and Folk Art is open 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday.

For more information, contact Dennis Raleigh at, Phyllis Sommer at, or call 548-6047.

Guys and Dolls

Town officials welcomed Jess Connors' Guys and Dolls Barber and Beauty Lounge with a ribbon-cutting ceremony July 25 at its 29 E. Main St. location.

A barbershop for men and women, Guys and Dolls offers custom cuts, luxurious shaves, everyday styles and up-do’s.

According to Connors, the shop is not your typical barbershop. Rather, it provides a variety of unique services to "relax, rejuvenate and restore your body, mind and soul."

Services include clay mask facials, man-facials, ladies' facials, hot oil scalp massages, deep conditioning treatments for beard and hair, scalp treatments, straight razor face and head shaves and more.

Appointments are recommended but walk-ins are welcome. Call or text at 322-2999 or check out for more information.
