About Chris + Chelsea, founders of The Place:
It’s a tale as old as time; girl meets boy, girl hires boy, they fall madly in love + run away to make croissants together in Maine for the rest of their days. No? You haven’t heard that one before? Oh, okay…. I guess we’ll backtrack….
What began as a are-you-sure-we-haven’t-known-eachother-our-whole-lives-friendship and work relationship flourished into much more than either of us could have ever bargained for. After a crazy year we packed our whole lives up and moved to Camden, Maine, determined to spend our days happy; making pastries, playlists (you’ll probably hear a lot of Talking Heads) + laughing together. We specialize in sweet + savory comfort pastries (Chris has referred to Chelsea’s food as “fancy Grandma food” since we met). We use only local flours, dairy + produce (some grown in our own yard + neighborhood in the Summertime). Our micro-bakery, is built in an old workshop where local Camden highschool sweethearts lived + grew old together spending their free time woodworking and crafting. We hope to make many beautiful things in the shop for years to come; just like Gypsie + George did before us.
