“A creative an unusual art gallery”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

This art gallery is present a lot of non convential art and every day objects.

They have plenty of amazing stuff just to look at.

But be warned, you could fall in love with something that is a bite pricy ;)

Enjoy your visit

“My favorite store in ages!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

This is an adorable art store. The art work is beautiful, quirky and unique. Stunning jewelry, great art for a beach house, catchy wall art. Such a fun store!

“Wonderful American made arts & crafts”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

This is one of our favorite stores and we've been to both the Portland and the Ogunquit location. Really love all the diverse and well made works and we usually don't leave the store empty handed. Over handcrafted robots/robot clocks made from recycled tin cans and tools to lovely inlaid wooden furniture, mouth blown glass works and funky twisted plastic candelabras there is something for everybody. While some of the items are very expensive, small, more affordable presents and items can also be found. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the various beautiful items, their history and the artists. Many of the items sold are American made as well, which is really nice.

“Great unique gifts”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

I've been to Abacus in Boothbay Harbor, Portland, and here. All are very similar with unique gifts in the moderate price range. It's an artsy place that's fun to browse even if you don't buy.

“Pricey but worth it.”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

There were lots of wonderful items too pricey for us to consider, but this store is full of artwork that is creative and not run of the mill.

We had a lot of fun browing and did buy a few things.
