Bucksport – The Stubborn Cow Blown Glass shop is home to some fine artwork as well as the home of Dave Roy and his wife.
The old bank was converted into a studio years ago and is about the only place where you can get stained glass north of Augusta and Portland.
St. Patrick’s Day was the last day the shop was open when a decision was made to close its doors before the pandemic escalated.
Roy said sales are up recently for hobbyists in search of equipment but not as much for the artwork.
“There’s not a lot of us that are around that sell those sorts supplies and tools and glass, so there’s a pretty good pent up demand, and we did fairly well for the first three or four weeks and still continues,” Roy said.
Roy said the town grants for small businesses have kept many rolling during the difficult summer.
