There’s A Store In Maine Where Everything Is Made By Prison Inmates And It’s A Delight

Maine is full of local shops catering to the tourists that flock here each year. The abundance of adorable stores that stock handcrafted items certainly comes in handy when it’s time to buy gifts for friends and family. Even when we don’t need to choose the perfect gift, we love window shopping and seeing just how crafty our neighbors can be. If you feel like you’ve visited them all, make a trip to the small town of Thomaston where you’ll find one of the most unique little shops around!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

The Maine State Prison Showroom is open every day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. You can learn more about the store and the way they operate by following them on Facebook. They can be reached at 207-354-9237.

Another great way to support local business is to visit one of the many unique antique stores. The Willows Flea Market is a three-story antique shop in Maine that’s almost too good to be true.
