Ahead this weekend: the last day of a Maine market, a DIY budget terrace, bright and bold beach towels, and more end-of-summer discoveries:
- It’s the last day of High Season Market in Port Clyde, Maine, featuring some of our favorite Northeast makers: Rudy Jude, ANK Ceramics, Ursa Major jewelry, Wonder Valley, and more. In the area? Stop by Ocean View Grange today, August 28th, 435 Port Clyde Road, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
- Our friend Eve Kahn is discussing her new book on pioneering but largely forgotten Impressionist painter Mary Rogers Williams via Connecticut Landmarks; September 12th, 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. Registration required; more info here.
- Time to stock the house with easy, textural throws and rugs for autumn: Direct-to-consumer outfit Urbanara is offering 15 percent off sitewide plus an extra 5 percent off for Remodelista readers now through August 31st; use code REMOD5 at checkout.
- (Very) unexpected uses for the utilitarian file cabinet.

May we recommend:
- Glass spoons for end-of-summer ice creams.
- For parents, pet owners, frequent hosts, and just about everybody: organic cotton rugs that can be tossed in the wash.
- Pool towels in highly saturated hues: indigo and sumac.
- A new twist on a Swedish classic, for keeping every room in order.
