The Brands of Summer

Okay, we’ve officially had enough warm weather that we’re calling it—Summer has begun!  Knowing that there was sunshine at the end of the snow-covered tunnel is what got us through this winter (and spring) and now we are ready to spend the next few months with our toes in the sand.  A new season means a new flood of exciting inventory at the store and we can’t wait to share some of our favorites to help you get summer-ready!



Spartina has been a longtime favorite for all of us at the store.  Whether it’s a tote for your carry-on or a wristlet for a quick shopping excursion, this brand does not disappoint when it comes to accessorizing your summer.  One standout this season is their poncho, which can be worn poolside or styled for an evening out.


This relatively new line from the Lombara mother-daughter team draws inspiration from the family’s love of the New England coast.  Their goal is to create quality, meaningful jewelry that can be passed down from generation to generation.  We’re so excited to start carrying these pieces, which are crafted in sterling silver and enamel right here in the United States.

Obviously, we love our Penny.  Heather hasn’t slowed down and has been busy growing the Penny James collection to include the Kayla Cross, Tree of Life, Sea Turtle, and Skipjack.  This line, inspired by personal experiences and living life on the Chesapeake Bay, holds so much meaning to us here at Maertens.  We invite you to stop by and find the piece that holds meaning for you.

Summer is our season!  Make it a point to stop by Maertens and stock up on seaside essentials!
