I first discovered Acadia World Traders about a dozen years ago, and they are always one of my first stops when I'm in the Acadia region of Maine. Run by a delightful couple--American wife, Balinese husband--the store doesn't just have well-chosen imported jewelry and gifts, and furnishings, from Indonesia. It also features Debra's unique, comfortable, beautiful batik clothes for women.... More

Wonderful hand made Balinese clothing. But the best purchase was the hand carved blue and gold leaf buddha panel - three buddha heads carved across a plank. Stunning heirloom. Great place, great parking,

The owners are very accommodating, the store itself is amazingly beautiful. An eclectic choice of clothing, furniture, jewlery, and a ton of other handmade crafts from independent Balinese artists. Very fair prices, especially to support the artists and craftsmen of Bali to continue traditional arts. Absolutely love this place, I make a point to stop in a few times per... More

The items there were nice, but they all looked like cheap quality stuff you get in Chinatown in NYC or other kiosks. The prices were a bit too... More

We are really sorry you felt our offerings were cheap trinkets from New York City's China Town. In fact we are very proud of the fact that all of our offerings are ethically produced and completely hand crafted by talented village artisans from the island of Bali. Skills are used such as wood carving and silver smithing and batik that... More

We stopped into this great place. We just bought a new home about 40 or so miles away but we intend to return as we furnish our retirement home. This is a must stop and the owners Deborah and Ramone are lovely people we hope to get better acquainted with.
