Bring a Piece of Portland Home with You
Souvenir shopping along the cobblestone streets of the Old Port, where shops with a unique nod to coastal living overflow with novelties and gifts, can consume an entire afternoon.
No matter – shopping in Greater Portland is a beloved pastime, and from Munjoy Hill to Monument Square, shoppers will find the perfect card, book, bauble, handmade craft, or kitschy keepsake to remind them of the days spent idling along the beaches, visiting lighthouses, and joining in on the revelries of this unique city by the sea.
Downtown Portland is a treasure trove for tee shirts, pieces of Maine tourmaline, decorative lobster traps, talking moose, and collectibles that couldn’t be conjured in the furthest imagination. Outside of the city, visitors can explore coastal trading posts, unique inland novelty shops, Maine-made gifts stores, and nautical-themed stores for plenty of items that will remind them of their stay. Popular coastal towns known for outlet commerce are a sure thing, but so are beloved local shops, galleries, and discount stores where more secreted treasures await.
