Dear Sun Spots: Wondering why the Mt. Auburn Cemetery entrances are still closed. We went Sunday, May 10, to place flowers and found the entrances blocked. Several others were looking to do the same. That has never happened before. What’s going on? Faithful Sun Spots reader, Lewiston.

Answer: Sun Spots spoke with Bruce at the Mount Auburn Cemetery who said that the two entrances on Mount Auburn Avenue are always open. He wondered if you were trying to gain entrance from the Summer Street side of the cemetery. The entrances on that side are closed all the time to control vandalism and other problems.

Dear Sun Spots: I need a few answers to my requests. I am hooking a Skillcraft rug and need short, yellow, green and blue ready-cut yarn. If anyone has any, I’ll buy. Also, does anyone know where I can buy small size bed jackets that elderly bedridden ladies wear? The stores don’t carry them. Lastly, does anyone make frames at home for paintings at reasonable prices. Thanks everyone. Call 783-9747. – Sheila, Lewiston.

Dear Sun Spots: For Joline in Rumford, Addie’s Shoppe on Park Street in Livermore Falls is a crafters consignment shop. I have sold my crafts there for the past two years and have thoroughly enjoyed my experience. The phone number is 897-6075. – Lori, Livermore.

Answer: Sun Spots had the pleasure of speaking with Addie Taylor, owner of Addie’s Shoppe at 32 Park Street, Routes 133 and 17. The store opened for the season on Memorial Day weekend and will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays through December. You can stop by to talk with Addie or call the above phone number to set up an appointment with her if you’re interested in selling your handmade items there.

Addie notes that all the items are made in Maine and range from one of a kind purses, pet beds, maple syrup, afghans, jewelry, moose coat racks and wooden cutting boards, just to mention a few. Right now, there are about 15 to 20 vendors, but more will set up in the coming months.

Dear Sun Spots: I would like to know if your readers know of anyone in the Oxford Hills area that has the equipment to smooth and polish rough minerals to jewelry grade. Thank you. – P.D., Otisfield.
