Many admirers of the great outdoors don’t have the time to actually set foot outside. Whether it’s work, family, a gym membership, or a crippling addiction to TiVo, there are more than a few reasons why those who fancy themselves BFFs with Mother Nature rarely enjoy her splendor. I call it Idle Thoreau Syndrome. It can strike anyone who appreciates the natural world but just doesn’t live in it.
Say what? In a nutshell, Daytrip Society sells home goods for nature boys and girls who would rather cuddle up with a bear on the couch than step in one’s poop in the woods; switch on a Smart Candle rather than build a campfire; admire a majestic moose … on the wall. The store — visit the Kennebunkport boutique or shop online — also stocks items by big-name designers like Thomas Paul and Normann Copenhagen along with an extensive array of books (think bird watching guides and Silent Spring).
And true to the eco-spirit of the place, Jenkins and West donate to the Kennebunkport Conservation Trust. These folks truly walk the talk. Now it's time for you to shop the shop.
