I went on my first dumpster dive the other day. Now that I’ve done it, I think everyone should experience it. Nothing compares to being inside a dumpster and seeing first hand what people throw out. To learn more read my blog post over on The Sound.

 

Skowhegan Quality Goods

I recently visited Skowhegan Quality Goods in downtown Portsmouth. Have you been? This is the couple that owns the place; Katie and Todd. Cute, right.

skowhegan1The place is chock-full of stuff. If you visit, take your time and ask about the products. Many of the items have a good story behind them.

skowhegan2They have novelty socks which I’m kinda obsessed with right now.

Skowhegan4They carry beauty products. I bought a charcoal cleansing sponge.

skowhegan7They’ve got some good old fashioned toys for kids.

skowhegan6My favorite products in the store are the cleaning products. Not sexy, I know. They carry The Simply Co. detergent, dry mops and dusters by Sladust (not pictured), and Bog Berry dryer balls.

Good solid stuff. You should check them out.
