Spicing up downtown Ellsworth

ELLSWORTH Things are heating up, and not just the weather. Robin's Romantic Supermart on 14 Front Street in Ellsworth is a recent addition to the downtown scene, offering a wide array of adult toys, movies and magazines.

The proprietress, Robin Rosenberg, has been open for a little more than a month ago. When she approached the city about opening an adult-themed store, she was concerned that there would be resistance.

'They had faith in me,' she said. 'The Chamber [of Commerce] is awesome. They do a lot for their members.'

Though the store offers a wide variety of items, there is also an entire wall of various lingerie, massage oils, lotions and other fun stuff to play with all holistic and healthy.

Rosenberg wants to educate the public about using organic products, as well as becoming more comfortable with their romantic lives.

'It's a super way to educate yourself about your body in a healthy way,' she said.

The shop itself is small and brightly lit, but still offers privacy to its customers with curtained windows, so passers-by won't be surprised by the store's contents. She hopes that customers will feel comfortable coming in, chatting with each other, giggling over gadgets and picking out a sexy outfit. It's a great place to get items for a bachelorette party or for a couple to heat up their intimacy.

But this type of industry isn't new for Rosenberg. She is the daughter of Dave - of Dave's Romantic Supermart in Bangor - so it's a family business.

She plans on holding a grand opening celebration on June 7. Rosenberg plans on having different events at the store, and already holds monthly talks by Doctor Love, a professor of psychology who will take questions about human sexuality. She also hopes to hold bachelorette parties and more.

You can also make purchases of the more than 100,000 products online at You can find them on Facebook and keep tabs on events.
