Thursday Thoughts: North Country Wind Bells Review & Giveaway

Earlier in the week, I announced the super prospect of doing something really special for you guys. Things panned out like I had hoped! It’s my honor to introduce you to North Country Wind Bells. Connie, please tell us a little about you and your business. 

Thank you, Cathy. I am the second generation of our Maine company, as my parents started the business back in the mid ‘70’s.  My parents started the “Buoy Bell® Series” which echo the “Haunting Sounds and Magic Memories®” of the bell buoys on the ocean’s waters, great lakes and mighty rivers.  One can hear a sample of our wind bells in the video below.  


We live on the rugged coast of Maine of which we cherish all the beauty around us.  The inspiration in our unique designs and sounds are derived from the beautiful forests and ever changing seas.  We work very hard to create excellent quality and service in our work and we stand behind it!  The steel we use is over 60% recycled steel, being cognizant of our environment.  Our work practices include all that we can be to strive forward as a green company as well.

In 1989, DH and I spent our 10th wedding anniversary on the coast of Maine in the quaint little town of Boothbay Harbor. The charm and mystery of vacationing on the shore of down-east is mesmerizing, especially the sounds that accompany its quaint beauty. We fell in love with the resonant harbor buoy bell.

Shortly after we returned home from our forever memorable vacation, DH stumbled upon North Country Wind Bells in a popular mail-order catalog. Ecstatically, we purchased the Boothbay Harbor buoy bell replicate wind bell. The comfort its music brings calms the storm within, while turbulent winds bellow outside.


We have enjoyed our North Country Wind Bells so much so that we have gifted the exact one to family members. This is the perfect all-occasion, made in Maine present to give to anyone! And… you know how important it is to us that products are made in the USA, too. They gets double kondo points on this one! 😉

This brings me to the point of today’s post. The good folks at North Country Wind Bells have agreed to give away one Boothbay Harbor Wind Bell with a black buoy bell wind catcher to one of my lucky readers.
