Shopping in Maine

There’s something you’ll love about Maine, from the moment your journey here begins. Multiple things, most likely. Things that happened, things you saw, things you felt. Things you want to remember.

And that’s all the reason you need, really, to go shopping here in Maine. It’s a chance to make one more discovery, one more unique path of your own, to find the thing that you’ll take home with you. Maybe it’s something you’ll show your friends, something that carries a story they’ll love to hear.

And as with everything here in Maine, it’s the journey you’ll remember most. Because while you’re looking for that unique memento, you’re actually doing the very thing you love most. You’re exploring your own path, discovering things, smiling without knowing it.

It might be a handbag you buy at a tiny boutique, a few blocks from the harbor. A shop you’ll always remember, where you laughed with the shopkeeper, and heard the story of the shop, or the story of her.

Or it might be an antique sale inside an old barn in the countryside, where you learned the story of the local ceramics created from the rich clay of Maine, and the stories of old sea captains who came into town to barter their goods from overseas.

It could be anything here, really. You’ll know it when you see it. And you’ll always remember how much fun you had along the way.

That’s the best part of shopping here.
