Fabulous Find Resale Boutique in Kittery, Maine, has chosen three non-profit organizations on the Seacoast to be their January beneficiaries: the Stratham Historical Society; the Players Ring Theatre; and the Warner House.
 
Our partnership with Fabulous Find includes donating items to the shop. Resale items featured in the shop are men and women’s designer clothing; jewelry; home accessories, furniture, music, and books. 
 
 
To get things rolling, there will be a coffee reception on Saturday Morning January 5 from 8:30 to 9:30 AM at the Fabulous Find Resale Boutique—located at 139 State Road, Kittery, ME. That morning checks will be given to December’s recipient, and January’s recipients (that’s us!) will be introduced. So if you go to the coffee reception on Saturday morning, you can start our month by shopping at 9:30.
 
January is our month, so please continue to donate goods to the Fabulous Find Resale Boutique during the month of January. 

The more we can give, the more we can sell. 

Fabulous Find takes donations anytime they are open.

Warner House Front Door Project

During the 18th & 19th century, many notable Portsmouth residents passed over the Warner House threshold and through the nine-paneled door at 150 Daniel Street. When the house became a museum in 1932, visitors from all over the world have done the same. But after 300 years, the venerable front door is in need of repairs.

The wooden trim surrounding the front door is twisting and separating from the brick walls. Most alarmingly, since the completion of our LCHIP project, a one inch gap has opened between the wood and stone sections of the threshold (the bit of wood and stone you step over when you enter through the door). This opening allows water, snow, and ice to reach our 300 year old structural system and can cause substantial damage--and it may already have.

Right now, we know the movement has caused the trim to pull away on the interior and exterior. What we don't know is the extent of structural damage beneath the threshold, which could be extensive. It is imperative we address this now and prevent further deterioration but we need your help! The estimated cost of repair is $20,000.

 

Until October 1st, the Warner House has received a matching gift of $10,000. We know you adore this historical landmark, so please help us reach that goal!
