Hailing from Maine I know a thing or two about L.L. Bean. As a child I relished watching all of the fish swimming in their indoor ponds during our frequent trips to the flagship store in Freeport, and I also worked for L.L. Bean during college. As I grew older my interests changed from aquariums to kitchens though and my favorite part of the store became the “Home” section. This pretty yet functional bag of goodies is a classic example of the fabulous finds you can uncover in-store. I tend to end up having a “one for you” and “one for me” mentality when it comes to gift sets and this Down East Breakfast Tote is no exception. With the holidays right around the corner, and department stores already forcing aisles of Christmas lights on us, now just might be the perfect time to stock up on Secret Santa and Hostess gifts. I simply can’t imagine anyone turning up their nose at buttermilk pancakes served with blueberry syrup, especially when made from a Stonewall Kitchen mix.
