We've chosen Gambies as the next woman owned company to highlight on the blog. This wonderful company from Bath, Maine is owned and operated by Margarte Jane Conover. She produces a wonderful, hand printed and 100% cotton, hooded gown that can be worn from infancy through toddlerhood, which is whi it's one of our go-to babygifts in the store. Gambies will keep your little one warm and cozy for many years; Just take out the bottom drawstring once the baby turns 3 month, and it can be worn as a cover-up/sweatshirt for many years to come.
We hope you'll check out this wonderful company the next time you visit G.Willikers!

Children's Day 2013 LogoChildren's Day 2013 Logo


Children's Day is one of G.Willkers! favorite days of the year!!

As always this years Children's Day will be held on the first Sunday in May, which will be Sunday, May 4th, 2014.

As is tradition, Pro Portsmouth, which is the organizer of Children's Day, is having a contest to create the Logo for this years events! If your child might be interested, check out the Pro Portsmouth website for more information. Below is a short overview of the guidelines!! We think there's a lot of little artists out there that might have a ball with this contest- what better than to see your design up all over town!! 



Here are a few guidelines for 2014:

  • Artists under age 12 are eligible to submit drawings and designs
  • Please use a MAXIMUM of 4 colors
  • The image should be drawn and submitted on 8.5” x 11” paper
  • You can use colored paper, markers, crayons and colored pencils to create your design – the key: the image must be flat (so it can be scanned into a computer)
  • The deadline for submission is Friday, March 28th
  • Ideas: Show us what the day means to you…fill in the blank: “Children’s Day is BLANK”; try to incorporate the year 2014.
  • Get creative – your drawings should be festive, fun and recognizable.

Please submit your entries to:   
Pro Portsmouth, Inc.
P.O. Box 967
