Thomaston — A new coffee and gift shop, Thyme to Talk, officially opened April 9 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony sponsored by Main Street Matters.

Featuring Wiscasset-based Seacoast Coffee, Thyme to Talk offers home-baked muffins, scones, pies and cakes, as well as local donuts and bagels. A limited lunch menu will be offered later.

Owner Shirley Barlow is a Maine native and retired social worker. She will be joined in the shop by Jean Short, David Sheehan and Mikki Ames.

Barlow held an open house on April 8 where more than 100 people checked the shop out.

An artist herself, Barlow will feature changing exhibits of local artists, and Ames, of Cushing and Matinicus, is the first to be featured. Her work is on display and for sale through May.

The shop at 167 Main St. is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

For more information, contact Barlow at 975-2446.
