On my blog as well as promoting my pottery business, I like to showcase some of the great Maine stores that carry my pottery and help artists like myself make a living. One such lovely store is Found in Maine, located in Kennebunk!
Found specializes in selling handmade products by local Maine artists. They sell Maine made pottery, jewelry, handbags, accessories, and even organic baby cloths. It’s the perfect place to go if you are looking for a unique and well crafted gift!
Owner Pamela Bennett got the idea to open Found after driving through Kennebunk’s historic downtown shopping area. She had been thinking about starting her own business and loved the idea of supporting Maine artisans and giving shoppers an opportunity to purchase beautiful handmade objects and special gifts.
Found is a wonderful location and I personally love how Pamela curates the store! Anyone looking for a great Maine gift shop should make stopping by a priority.
One thing I love as an artist, is the fact that Pamela will often do wholesale instead of consignment. Not that consignment is bad, but it can often be difficult for artists to wait for the products to sell in the store to receive a payment. Especially during offseason times.
