Portland Head Bell

I had one for years that final went down in our last Hurricane. After taking a New England trip and going to Portland Head lighthouse I had to get this. Beautifully made sounds wonderful just a great product.


Love my Cape Cod buoy bell

Spent summers on Cape Cod as a kid and my buoy bell takes me back, especially during the Santa Ana winds here in Southern California. This is a great product.


The perfect gift!

Great quality and unusual gift for the person who is very hard to buy for! Grommet’s collection of gifts is a great resource for unique products.


Feel like I am in Portsmouth!

I am in love with my bouy bell. I used to lie in bed and listen to the bouy outside my window in Camden Maine and it would lull me to sleep. I love the sound of the Portsmouth, NH bouy I hung on my front porch. It brings back fond memories and relaxes me completely.

I believe cardinals are reminders of our deceased loved ones. I bought these for my family, in honor of my husband. This is a beautiful gentle graceful remembrance.

a bell from bar harbor

11/1/2019 by William

i responded to an ad on (i believe) instagram. i live in louisiana, but i love maine,and especially bar harbor.
the bell advertised as a "bar harbor" buoy bell. i'll admit i was skeptical, but tried anyway.
i could not be happier with the purchase. it is beautifully made from iron, and has a tone that absolutely matches the sounds of the bar harbor area.
i have hung the bell so that only the north wind can activate the sound. a north wind is a rare occurrence in my city, so this is the sound of cool weather and great joy.

The North Country Wind Bells Story

North Country Wind Bells | Buoy Wind Bells

Sound Of The Sea

Jim Davidson was a lobsterman in Maine for years. Buoy bells chiming as he hauled in his lobster traps was a favorite sound—equal parts peaceful and melodic, and an indicator that he was safely close to harbor.

Jim was so enamored with the sound that he and his wife, May, began creating their own wind chimes to capture it. Their North Country Wind Bells are made at home in Maine and capture the tones of over 20 coastal and harbor bells.

Each location has a distinctive sound—from Bar Harbor to San Francisco—that Jim and May have carefully recreated. They started by recording as many local bells
as they could. They then fine-tuned their own bells by ear until the sound was just right.

The bells and windcatchers are crafted from recycled steel by many of the locals in the Davidsons' small town, and should last for at least 20 years of coastal-inspired sound.
