Sage Moon Apothecary Brick & Mortar

$1,179 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 20 people in 1 month
A most amazing opportunity has come my way!  It is something I have dreamt about for years and have been slowly working towards creating.  As things tend to happen when you are ready, this opportunity has been gently placed in my lap and I have accepted and am ready to move forward with the evolution of Sage Moon Apothecary - as a brick and mortar shop.  


Sage Moon Apothecary & Curiosities will be a conglomeration of the many successful endeavors that I have created over the past 10 years.  It will have it’s home in a prime location on Main Street in Downtown Ellsworth, in a space that I have been offered to lease with a subsidized rent.  This is a wonderful opportunity to begin this endeavor in a reduced risk environment.  

Sage Moon Apothecary & Curiosities will be centered around a full scale working apothecary serving the surrounding local communities.  This space will also be home to a therapeutic treatment room, which will offer wellness options such as massage, midwifery, energetic bodywork, spiritual counseling, and other modalities of the healing arts.  Sage Moon Apothecary & Curiosities will also be home to a retail shop, carrying the creations of local artisans as well as holding monthly expanded pop up markets.  Furthermore, the space will hold educational and experiential opportunities such as workshops and classes on art making, herbal medicine & natural skincare products.  As well as other events for personal enrichment and wellness.

Sage Moon Apothecary & Curiosities has the support from and is partnering with Linda Perrin whose successful artisan endeavors include Atlantic Art Glass , Island Artisans and Artsworth .  Linda  will lend a helping hand in in building Sage Moon Apothecary & Curiosities, as well as in it’s actives and events.  This endeavor also has the support of many other local artisans, small business owners, and wellness care professionals 

For the past 10 years, I have served the communities of both Ellsworth and Mount Desert Island in many ways.  I have held community cost-by-donation clinics and community enrichment events, by bringing together a grand network of health and wellness providers and creating the organization Village Health & Wellness.  I have, through Village Health & Wellness, held markets and events in Northeast Harbor that served as excellent opportunities for community connection and to support the work and careers of local artisans.  I have also maintained a private practice in the wellness field and now run a successful apothecary which serves not only the local communities, but also serves people across the country through my strong online presence. 

I  have the amazing opportunity to bring all of this together, in one central space, which will support the people of our local communities by providing many enriching opportunities,  and will support local small businesses and artisans.  

Sage Moon Apothecary & Curiosities plans to be a community heartbeat in alignment with the intention that has carried all of my creations - to improve the world, one community, one individual at a time.

To make this happen, I am reaching out to my friends and family for support.  I wish to raise a minimum of $3,000 which will help with the basic essentials to begin.  My ultimate goal is $5000 which will help to additional necessities for a successful business.  I am hoping to raise this money by early May to facilitate an early June opening.


Some of the things that funding will go towards are:

A Point of Sale system for retail shop transactions.

WIFI,  which will be necessary for sales transactions, with possible public access for shoppers and guests.

Signage both inside and outside to highlight Sage Moon Apothecary & Curiosities along with its participating artisans.

Very basic aesthetic improvements to the space, such as painting, lighting, shelving, seating area, and therapy room improvements.


Taking Sage Moon Apothecary to the next level of a brick and mortar store is my dream come true. To have the support of my friends and family would mean more to me than I can describe with words.

Each donation is not only an investment in me and my vision, it is an investment in the wellness of our local communities with effects that ripple out to the world.  Each and every person who donates is a part of this wonderful energy.
