Good news! Over the holiday season we're adding a cozy retail shop to our commercial kitchen so you can finally come and browse our wares. From boxed bonbons to gift baskets and holiday assortments of all our confections, you'll be able to get delicious handcrafted Maine-made and inspired treats for everyone on your list.
The doors to our Holiday Pop-Up Shop will open on Friday, November 25th and will be open through Friday, December 23rd. We are delighted and excited to be opening our doors to the public, something we've been asked a lot about and is now becoming a reality.
Christopher Hastings Confection Chocolate Pop-Up Shop
November 25th - December 23rd, 2016
Prepare for the most scrumptious time of the year!
You might have heard the rumor that there's a new chocolate shop in town - it's true!
But we're kind of a 'secret shop' - we do not have a retail storefront, instead we have a commercial kitchen nestled in the heart of historic downtown Waterville Maine, right off beautiful Castonguay Square next to the Waterville Opera House.
This is a dream come true for us - moving from our home-licensed kitchen in Portland, Maine to a larger, more economically viable commercial space gives us the room and freedom we need to make MORE delicious chocolates! Huzzah!
While we are open by appointment only, we delivery to the greater Waterville area and you can pick up your chocolates here too - just don't expect a fancy retail shop! While we certainly plan to open a fancy retail shop in the next few years, our business model is focused on making chocolates for sale online, wholesale through retailers, and of course we want to create lots of fabulous custom chocolates for corporate gifts, wedding favors, baby showers, you name it!
So we hope you won't be too disappointed that you can't just drop by to see all of our goodies - but if you order chocolates online and request 'pick up' you can certainly see our space, we'd love to introduce you to what makes chocolates from Christopher Hastings Confections so very special. And yes, they ARE special!
Give us a taste today - we'll be appearing soon at some fantastic local retailers and will be sure to get the word out!
