New downtown Bangor boutique offers an array of Maine-made gifts


In Rebeca Garcia’s hometown of Madrid, Spain, one of the most popular summer fiestas is La Verbena de la Paloma, or the Virgin of the Doves, held in mid-August each year, featuring street processions, music, food and merriment.

It’s one of her favorite times of year, which is why when it came to naming her new shop in downtown Bangor, she chose Paloma’s Gifts to honor her Spanish heritage in her adopted hometown.

“Paloma is also Spanish for dove, and my husband loves birds, so it all just makes sense,” she said. “It’s things we both love.”
