Beyond The Sea moving to Lincolnville Beach

Mar 20, 2013
After six years, Beyond the Sea is leaving downtown Belfast.

Belfast — Nanette Gionfriddo has announced that the downtown Beyond the Sea Gifts and Books is moving Sunday, March 31, to 2526 Atlantic Highway/Route 1, Lincolnville Beach. She credited the energy and encouragement of friends and customers with making this unplanned emigration from Belfast to Lincolnville a success.

At the new location, Beyond the Sea will have almost twice the space, big and bright, and can offer more artisan lines and products, more art, more elbow room and more comfy chairs for customers. There also will be a second-floor space for literary and art events.

“Working together for years has created the wonderful downtown community I treasure. I know Belfast will continue to flourish. I will pass care of my pride and joy, the Belfast Bound Book Festival, to Our Town Belfast to promote, coordinate and nurture. My dream for this year was to expand the festival even further, and I trust it shall under their care,” said Gionfriddo.

She extended special thanks to her Belfast business neighbors, “whom I shall miss exceedingly. You made 74 Main St. feel like my second home.”

The last open day in Belfast will be Saturday, March 30. Gionfriddo said they will be in the midst of packing but are looking forward to seeing many familiar faces. For more information, send email to or visit Beyond the Sea Maine’s Facebook page.
