Distinctive Finds in a Welcoming Downtown – A Specialty Shopper’s Delight

Shopping hits its height in Greater Portland, and for those seeking boutiques, independently-owned shops, and specialty stores, the Old Port is a logical place to start. Its showcase of unique products is a shopper’s delight.

Maine designer studios mix with sources of giftable finds in nearly every imaginable category. A short walk further up from Portland's waterfront, shoppers making their way along Congress Street will marvel at the diversity of stores and specialized merchandise lining the city streets. Window shoppers are welcome – shop windows provide a feast for the eyes - but they will be easily lured by a unique item or one-of-a-kind object calling to them from inside.

Owners of the city’s specialty shops have a passion for their wares, and a welcoming hello and expert guidance is the order of the day for most stores. Specialty shops fit nearly any taste, from traditional to over the top. Those seeking high quality handmade items will find textiles from Maine’s thriving fiber arts community, leather goods, handmade soaps, and custom-made longboards for those eyeing the surf. Specialty cooking stores will attract the aspiring chef with local-made condiments, wine and cookware. Others will be drawn by independent booksellers, vinyl record stores, boutique lingerie shops, potters, spiritual healers, old time candy shops, and vintage shops teeming with treasures. Still others will be enticed by traditional and casual menswear, tackle shops, specialty pet stores welcoming four-footed travelers, and seafood shops offering smoked gifts and caviar. Exhausted shoppers will be pleased to find a bistro or local pub nearby, the idea spot to reflect on the possibilities.
