The Grasshopper Shop of Rockland is currently owned and operated by Sierra Dietz, the daughter of Johanna Strassberg and Ken Schweikert, who founded the company in 1975. Sierra literally grew up in the business: her parents used the window in the original Belfast store as her playpen when she was a baby. After working in retail in Boston after college, Sierra returned to Maine in 2000 to help her parents run the Rockland and Ellsworth stores, and after her mother’s retirement a few years back, Sierra became owner of the Grasshopper Shop of Rockland.

The shop’s roots are in joy, nature, family and community. Johanna and Ken came to Maine after college to join the back-to-the-land movement. The couple were homesteading when they bought a newspaper stand in Belfast called The Grasshopper Shop. They began selling the kind of things coveted by their own community, young families who had come to rural Maine as part of the counterculture movement: leotards, tapestries, natural foods and more. To insure that the store had something for everyone, there was always a variety of goods on hand, with practical items like woodstoves right next to more whimsical merchandise. This is a philosophy still followed at the Grasshopper Shop of Rockland today.

Over the decades, there have been Grasshopper Shop locations in Belfast, Camden, Bangor, Ellsworth, Searsport, Stonington and Bar Harbor, all owned and run by family members. The Rockland location opened in 1997 and has been proud to be a staple of the downtown shopping scene ever since. (The other location still open is the Grasshopper Shop of Searsport, located at 27 East Main Street.)

Sierra takes pride in making sure that the Grasshopper Shop of Rockland is fully stocked with the kind of items the Grasshopper’s loyal customers have come to expect: things that comfort, charm and surprise, many made locally in Maine or in the USA. Everything on our shelves is hand-selected to make life a little brighter and more joyful, and our wonderful staff are always eager to answer questions and help shoppers find just what they’re looking for. We’re even told that it smells good in here!

When you come into the Grasshopper Shop of Rockland today, you may find Sierra’s own young children in the store helping out. Sierra is proud to be keeping her parents’ dream of a family-oriented, entertaining shopping experience going for the next generation of Grasshopper Shop fans.

Spirit Animal Totems

Grasshopper Meaning, and Messages

Grasshopper Totem, Spirit Animal

People with the grasshopper totem are innovative, forward thinkers that rarely miss an opportunity to move forward. They are always successful in any venture that they undertake. Folks with this spirit animal also know how to use their instincts to capture the exact moment that will give them the most significant benefit. They are benevolent and enjoy giving to others. Furthermore, they rarely stay in one place very long. Like the osprey, they always seek out the best opportunities to move forward.

Grasshopper Dream Interpretation

When you have a grasshopper dream, it is usually an indication that you are having a bit of trouble committing yourself to a decision. Thus you need to settle down to the task at hand. Alternatively, this insect is a symbol of freedom, independence, and enlightenment in a dream.

If the creature is moving away from you, it signifies that what you were hoping and dreaming of in your waking life is just out of reach. In other words, to get what you want out of life, you must change something within yourself to fulfill your dreams completely.

Unlike the sure-footed goat, to dream of thousands of these insects is an omen of uncertain footing as you move through some significant changes.

Last night i got a dream where a person came to me and he was holding green grasshoppers in his hands where by he told me to go with me and give me grasshoppers but i feared to go with him in a dream.

So what does it mean?

Just saw a grasshopper on my balcony. It just stayed there as I spoke with it and took photos. Amazing details, I wish I could share the pic.

I immediately looked up totems and it couldn’t be more so. I’m leaving my apartment to live in my car September 14th. I have a lawsuit court date happening August 24th. I’ve been in a place of not knowing where my life is heading for awhile now. As much as I pray for guidance, I still feel a bit lost. I mostly focus on gratitude and the blessings in my life.

Seems like so many are leaving their residents behind and residing in their cars and tents. Is this part of the Earth changes happening? I hope to find a place I can connect with other like minded spirits before I transition for this world. I’ll be mindful of the blessings of the grasshopper.

Hello Christo I’m sorry to hear about your current circumstance having to be living in your car. I can relate to your situation because I too. Lived in my truck for 6 months and it was the hardest thing ever but I never lost faith n God got me through it when I thought I had lost all hope. I would like to share with you tbat today on my lunch I was sitting down on the curb and this grasshopper. was gracefully walking towards me so I took a couple of pictures and then he got really close to my feet and jumped on me .my initial reaction was I got up screamed and jumped lol . I am currently going through a situation where I rent through Fairfield apartments and they lied to me and took my money and falsified documents and left me broke since July I’ve been stressed out and worried frantically about this but through these weeks I have been seeing gorgeous dragonflies that are so bright and colorful and big gorgeous stunning monarch butterflies and now a grasshopper. Which I thought was a praying mantis but what I’m trying to say is like you I was saying omg I’m gonna end up living in my car again or on the street but I have been blessed to have the magnificent creatures reassure me that everything is going to be ok and my spirit guides my guardian angels our giving me messages to give me comfort and peace so I wanted you to know that maybe the grasshopper was a sign for me to look up on the symbolic meaning and it brought me to see your post and share with you that I’ve been the where you are and as bad as it may seem your are NOT ALONE. This is a major transformation of change n to be patient stay positive and allow yourself to be aware of what’s around you and allow the universe to work for you and your situation that will be for the greater good. God works miracles he is with you all the time and you will see that everything is meant to happen and you will prosper and have a victorious and abundant life. Don’t loose faith may God bless you.

Hello out of all,my years living I had an grasshopper to crawl up my leg while I was sitting in my car I happened to look down and as soon as I did its like it started to,fade away I have being going through,some things in my life especially on my job when I googled what it means for an grasshopper to crwal. On you its basically means good luck I dont belive in luck I believe in God blessing me I really do feel,like he want to,take me to higher grounds

Christo, I’m praying for you and your situation.
I as well have been having crazy grasshopper experiences. It started with one in my car that just stayed near me one day. The next day I had 8 grasshoppers inside my car and 4 on the outside. I drove to the store and they all managed to hang on. Got home, left windows cracked for them to leave but they stayed. For 5-6 days now I see at least one inside my car or on my rear view mirror on drivers door. Then, as i was leaving work, there was 2 of them on the inside of the buildings door. Then the next day there was one outside my front door. Now I was sitting on my porch and my son knocks on the window and points to the window above my head. There is a grasshopper on the window looking straight down at me! This has been a week that I’ve seen at least one (usually more) every day. I talk to them and ask them what they are trying to tell me. Any thoughts?

Thirty-five years ago, my driver’s ed instructor, Mr. Donaldson, taught me to constantly check all of my mirrors–every two seconds” he would say. I’ve always carried his teachings with me as he was so patient and kind…even with the “bad” kids. Leaving home this afternoon (2pm EST), and I was anxious to leave because I didn’t want to be in the house with my abusive husband (my new husband and I are divorcing–after seven years of dating and less than three months married I found out that he’d been cheating for months leading up to our Oct 2017 marriage and beyond). The energy at home has been awful; he treats me as if I’m the having the affair. Anyway, headed towards the freeway about 1/4 of a mile away, I checked my mirrors every two seconds as always. It wasn’t until I had been on the freeway about a minute or two that I noticed a large green grasshopper clinging to my passenger side mirror. I hadn’t thought much in the way of spirits or omens until after I decided to share the “incident’ with my mother and sister (9pm). My angel guide led me to google “grasshopper good omen” and I came across a few sites. However, this message board has been the most intriguing. Thanks everyone for sharing; all of this has been exactly what I needed to feel comfortable in this toxic environment until our divorce is settled…hopefully, during our Aug 27th settlement hearing.

I had a grasshopper living in my hoyse last 5 days now there’s 2 just relized animal totems so I can’t keep my home anymore and totally broken was thinking / feeling I need a camper van and just feek off … even ghough i know notbing of living off grid . is this the sign in need

Just finished writing my own comment and ran across yours. I too, am leaving my apartment and moving into my Toyota Prius C. I removed the seats and built a platform and tricked it out for my simple needs. I ask myself, what am I doing. I’m 50 years old and I’ll just be traveling around, working from anywhere. It has been calling me for almost a year and finally my lease is up. Feels like I have been living in molasses. Can’t wait to break free. I have bumped into many others that are hearing the same calling. I wish you well on your journey.

Hi, as I was walking to work in the morning I noticed so many grasshoppers dead and trembled on.

They were all spread perhaps more than twenty of them (both the green and brown), the location being a bus station, they were all trembled on which took my attention.

Being a city, I couldn’t expect to see grasshoppers but there they were all dead. I had also spotted one at the corridor in the building where I work also dead.

Seeing all these other dead made me wonder what could this mean? Recently I had been seeking help from the guides to remove every negative energies and unworthy relationships from me to reach my goals and higher self. We have been in a good relationship with them and they always respond to my requests, but this one is hard to digest the meaning.

What’s this supposed to mean?

I think that this means you just need to be much more confident in yourself and you just need to let thing go out of hand and do it. Whatever situation you are in, you need to feel free and do the work because since you saw all of those dead grasshoppers, they are telling you that the out comes will always be positive.

Grasshopper said “Listen to your inner voice and you will know exactly what you have to do” If only it were that easy. I’ve tried many different ways for many years to hear my inner voice. I don’t seem to have made any progress on this, or in life, despite my best efforts

Beleive in yourself and it will happen.

I am from india my name is priyam
Can any1 explain me what are actual spritual meaning of grasshoppers because 5 months backs we did a big pooja at our home after that what i see is there are 5 grasshoppers moving all around in home 2 soonly flied away two died in home and one still sitting in our pooja room on photo of god rarely moves from that photo.
Do really grasshoppers comes our home to give any message please please let me know if any1 knows better about them

Namaste’….the grasshopper was a visitation from the gods to your home. It was an indication that the celebration of pooja was accepted in truest kindest. You will receive abundance and positivity in your life

This is really interesting! I am Portuguese and I live in India since 2012, and these last few weeks I have been doing with a Durga temple Swami’s some pujas and rituals to clear bad energies. we will do the last one soon. Since we started I ve been reciting Hindu mantras and prayers every morning and evening. and between yesterday and today, entered in my little daughter’s bathroom one scarab (today morning), and one grasshopper (yesterday night). The most curious is that the toilet has no windows, just small openings near the roof with mosquito net!… Amazing… I hope blessings coming our way.

There is a Grasshoper growing outside my room. I discovered her 4 weeks ago and the lil beaut is still here. I have watched her shed twice. Last night I returned home and as i’m walking into my room i see this gigantic long and curled moving creature underneath her favorite plant. She was shedding her skin and now has wings. So wonderful. I have been watching her grow from a lil bud to a full winged grasshoper. It is symbolic as I too am shedding my layers and spreading my wings across the horizon and expanding within.
Thanks everyone ❤

That is so beautiful n true

We just learned my daughters father passed Wednesday. To was a very long heartbreaking day for her. By the time we made it home of course she was exhausted but wanted to shower and rest. As she begin to shower I heard her scream. She jumped out n said ma there’s a grasshopper in the shower. I said Ok what you want me to do. She said kill it. Now I know she’s frantic of anyt insect so I went could see a glimpse of him Ins her towel. Shook her towel to let him fall in the tub but after I open the curtains he’d disappeared. I’m thinking this definitely has to do with her fathers death telling he I have faith in her new journey to move forward without him in her life.

So I was sitting on my front porch listening to music on my husbands dewalt radio thing, that I plug my phone into. And I watched this rather large, chubby grasshopper crawl across my wheelchair ramp, which crosses the front of my porch, then crawl across my porch onto my radio lol. It then hopped onto the arm of my chair and crawled onto me. Now I read up on what it means for them to be a spirit totem animal. And that kind of fits the situation but what else could it mean? I’m open to all meanings really. I’m just really curious as it was a cool experience

I’m pretty upset right now a couple nights ago during the full moon a grasshopper appeared just chilling out on my 18 foot high ceiling in my room. Last night they kept me company and I made sure to leave some good water out in my closer area as well as my altar (just in case they wanted to check it out lol) well today they weren’t looking so bright green so I moved the water to their next logical landing and went to bed. Well, today is my laundry day and as I was hurriedly tossing clothes onto the bed from my closet…I saw them in front of the doorway on my floor looking quite “comfortable” and not leaping when I tossed things right above them. I asked my fiance if he was dead and my fiance, sensitive fellow he is lol, slid my slipper at them and said, “Yep. Dead. They usually hop outta the way. Hence the name.”
I had grown quite fond of them and saw them as a good omen of sorts and am feeling quite guilty since in all likelihood I accidentally crushed the poor creature in my haste to start my laundry.
My question is this (I imagine some folks will snicker): What do I do with them now? Flushing or trashing them just doesn’t quite feel right…

Crickets make good eating. Put the grasshopper outside so the birds can have a happy meal. They will thank you ever so much.

From reading your post I can see we speak the same language. Therefore, you should know that which comes from the earth goes back to the earth. I would bury it. You can say a short incantation he you like. Just speak from your heart. End it with blessed be if you wish.

I hope this gives you enlightenment.
Blessed be sister

when around before 3 am in the morning a grasshopper sit on my left hand while i was placing my hand on head .I didnt noticed .then i feel a little pain and saw it,im sure it bited me.it jump off to computer screne climbed up and left. i dont know is it because i did something wrong.coz i read a lot of swami vivekanandas book and some new ideas flashed in my mind and this all happened after that.plz plz plz reply

I had this dream last night and the one vivid point I remember was looking down and seeing thousands of green grasshoppers climbing up my body from the feet up–all of my legs were covered. I remember thinking ok, what does this mean…..I wasn’t scared but curious. Any ideas on what it might mean?

I recently did a DEEP hypno-meditation to put me in contact with my spirit guide. I spent an hour and 15 minutes in this deep state ( I have never been “in” that lo g before) ,but I remembered nothing after I came out of the session. I did , however, feel more at peace and focused and many of my aches and pains were gone. The next day I got into my car to go to work and this huge grasshopper was on my dash. He didn’t seem to be alarmed by me and ventured closer before crawling under the seat. On my way home from work that evening he jumped up onto my shoulder and inched up closer to my ear the whole ride home. I exited the car and casually walked into my back yard where i am building a “nurturing Zen space”. He sat there on my shoulder while I sat down on a patio chair for a few quiet moments before jumping off into my garden. It was a very powerful experience!!

Atkins Shows Support for Local Businesses
During Small Business Week

State Representative Cory Atkins showed her support for small, local businesses in Concord on Monday, May 21st, the first day of State House Small Business Week in Massachusetts. She visited local businesses to thank them for their contributions to the economy and to promote shopping local this summer.

“Small businesses are the backbone of the Commonwealth and the nation,” said Atkins. “That is why I am always delighted to spend money in my community. Also, shopping locally is more
fun because you go visiting while you shop. You reunite with members of the community, you see how they are doing, you nibble on their jelly beans, and you buy their products.”

She visited two businesses to thank them for their contributions to the economy and to promote shopping local this summer. “It was hard to choose just two businesses to visit, but this has been one of my favorite assignments,” said Atkins. “I am glad legislators were asked to do this.”

Atkins visited Grasshopper Shop, a women’s clothing and accessories boutique at 36 Main Street run by Rebecca Bilodeau and owned by the Bilodeau family for over 30 years. During her visit Atkins said “People are always asking me where I get my suit jackets because they are striking. I tell them the Grasshopper Shop, where the outdoor displays always beckon a would-be shopper to come in and see the latest styles. The Bilodeau sisters are more than helpful. There is not a friendlier place to shop for distinctive, affordable clothing.”
