The Rocks' shops OPEN November 2nd!

We are so excited for the holiday season to start that we’re opening both our wonderful gift shops at The Rocks Estate NEXT WEEK! That’s right, both the Rocks Marketplace and the Rocks Gift Shop will be offering up holiday gifts, decorations, and good cheer daily, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., from November 2nd right through Christmas Eve.

(Please note The Rocks will be closed Thanksgiving Day.)

Each year The Rocks staff searches throughout our region to bring wonderful new items to our Gift Shop and Marketplace shelves, and we’re proud to offer myriad locally- and regionally-crafted goods, from pottery and preserves to handmade soaps and candies to festive ornaments and intricately decorated wreaths. And because variety is the spice of successful holiday shopping, we make sure to have something for everyone on your gift list: kids and grandparents, friends and neighbors, even your pets!

This season at the Rocks Marketplace, shoppers will find an array of offerings from local artisans. These include beautifully made, hand-painted pottery from Joan Hannah, a retired farmer and former Olympic skier from Sugar Hill; hand-made goat milk soap from Hillary Tuite McMahon of Wild Oaks Farm in Landaff; outdoors-inspired jewelry from Emily Mouchon of Hunt Fish Maine; old-fashion candy from Country Cupboard Candy of New Hampshire, and countless other regional items.

For that hard-to-find gift for the guy (or gal) who has everything, check out the Pocket Monkey, a 12-in-1 tool that fits in a wallet and can open a bottle or a letter, fix your eyeglasses, peel an orange and more. To add a little ambiance to someone’s home, pick up a Bottle Wick, which can turn an empty wine or ale bottle into a classic oil lamp – and is made in Hancock, N.H. For family fun, the Cider Time Press, skillfully made by Maine craftsmen, is a compact cider press for home use.

Holiday shoppers will find ornaments, Rocks Estate maple syrup, and a beautiful selection of holiday wreaths, in the Rocks Gift Shop. And remember, The Rocks opens for Christmas tree sales, including Cut-Your-Own, November 21st.

Can’t make it to The Rocks this holiday season? Don’t fret… we’ll deliver the holidays right to your doorstep! Our online shop offers fantastic gifts, fresh-cut trees, wreaths, ornaments, and all the accessories you need to make your holiday happy and bright!

However you shop, The Rocks is ready to help you bring home the holidays!

The Giving is Easy at The Rocks Online Shop

As the winter holidays approach, the giving is easy at The Rocks Estate. That’s especially true with this year’s new Gift Giving Made Easy offerings on our online shop.

Our Gift Giving Made Easy goal is to allow our customers to sit back, relax, and choose from our New England-centric gift packages, all from the comfort of home. As always in our online shop, shipping is free. If you live locally, we’ll even deliver your order of five or more gifts directly to your home or office!

There’s nothing more New England than maple syrup, and our online shop has several maple offerings, including the new Maple Sap Bucket package: two varieties of pancake mix from White Mountains Canning Company of Lancaster, New Hampshire, paired with two grades of The Rocks’ own maple syrup, all assembled in a real sap bucket!

Coffee connoisseurs will love the gift of locally-roasted coffee wrapped up with two moose mugs, handmade and painted by local potter Joan Hannah of Sugar Hill. For the popcorn lovers on your list, the trio of kettle corn flavors – plain, On Fire (jalepeno), and Maple – is an easy gift choice, and made in Vermont by Kingdom Kernel Kettle Corn. And the sweetest sweet tooth will be happily satisfied with our assortment of confections from Country Cupboard Candies.

Online shoppers may also order a perfect Christmas tree, cut fresh and delivered right to your door, plus hand-decorated wreaths ranging from whimsically fun to perfectly holiday festive, beautiful holiday ornaments, and decorating accessories
