Did you know?

Tote bags have been around since the 17th Century. Men and Women form almost all cultures were wearing a satchels made from a form of textile. The satchels were used to carry their belongings around with them. Some of the materials used to create these tote bags were leather, cloth or vegetal fibers.

Today the tote bag is now a mixture of beauty and utility. Some of the the totes as an eco-conscious statement to fight against using plastic from the store to your pantry/home. Others wear the tote as a fashion statement and decorate the bag to make a statement. Now, you can find a tote for every occasion as they come in every size.

There are two theories on the origin of the name "Casco Bay". Aucocisco is the Abenaki name for the bay, which means 'place of herons' (sometimes translated as 'muddy'). The Portuguese explorer Estêvão Gomes, mapped the Maine coast in 1525 and named the bay "Bahía de Cascos" (Bay of Helmets, based on the shape of the bay).

The first settlement in Casco Bay was that of Capt. Christopher Levett, an English explorer, who built a house on House Island in 1623–24. The first permanent settlement of the bay was named Casco; despite changing names throughout history, that settlement remains the largest city in the Casco Bay region, now called the city of Portland, Maine

It was first reported in 1700 by Colonel Wolfgang William Römer, an English military engineer, that there were "as many islands as there are days in the year". The United States Coastal Pilot lists 136 islands, leading to the bay's islands being called the Calendar Islands based on the popular myth there are 365 of them. Later, Robert M. York, the former Maine state historian said there are "little more than two hundred islands".

Maine, the northeastern most U.S. state, is known for its rocky coastline, maritime history and nature areas like the granite and spruce islands of Acadia National Park. Moose are plentiful in Baxter State Park, home to Mt. Katahdin, endpoint of the Appalachian Trail. Lighthouses such as the candy-striped beacon at West Quoddy Head, dot the coast, as do lobster shacks and sandy beaches like Ogunquit and Old Orchard. 

Maine was admitted to the Union as the 23rd state on March 15, 1820.
