This is a nice little shop, tucked away in Bar Harbor. The owner is friendly and engaging & they have some great items here. One of the things that caught my eye are called Spirit Tiles. They have a graphic on the front, a quote on the sides, and whom said it on the top. They are a little pricey, but considering what they are, they are probably worth it. Im told the creator of the art regulates the price, so where ever you get them, they are priced the same, so why not get one while on a vacation/trip to Bar Harbor, Maine?Nice place...
What a unique and wonderful store! I tried to go there only once, but somehow wound up there the next day as well. One of a kind items that are truly pieces of art. Nothing else like it is being sold in any of the other Bar Harbor shops. To top it all off, the owners are lovely. Knowledgeable about all the art and artists and seem like genuinely caring people.
This is a must stop shop while in Bar Harbor. The usual t shirts and magnets, you ask? No. Just the opposite. There is a very unique feel and vibe to this store that is like nothing else in the area. There are works by various local artists that are very impressive. If youre looking to pick up a souvenir from your trip and want more than the usual hey, I was here mug, this is the place to go. The owners are very personable and will give you the details on the artists that created the pieces. So glad my wife and I stopped in!
I contacted the shop to find out what the holiday hrs are followed the instructions by phone message . Nothing for hrs listed on Facebook , or other website , also never got a return phone call . I took a chance drove 2 hrs to the shop , sign in window stayed open at 10, all delivery please drop off at other shop across the plaza . ( have photos of websites and signs in window) Shop never opened, other shop owner stayed they had no way to contact , but receive there packages , then stated, there closed for the season . I was looking for a very specific item they sell for another artist . I shopped there 2 x’s over the summer as well as bring in customers who also made a purchase .. I would have been grateful for a call back that could have led to a good conversation. If I was an artist in her shop I would be a little concerned that my product is not being sold or advertised for future sales ..
Please be sure to make this a stop when you are in Bar Harbor. It is a nice store located just inside from the main street. You will find alot of amazing artwork from international artists, jewelry and even lotions and perfumes/colognes. While there my friend and I had a great conversation with the owners Patrick and Jolene.
Such a fantastic gem of a store, super friendly staff every time we visit. And bonus? Dog friendly!
A very cool little shop with LOADS of art and jewelry from local artists and beyond! Very cool selection of tarot and astrological paraphernalia.
A shining example of what an art gallery can be! Celebrating small artists and amazing products, this store is amazing!
Unique things tucked a bit back from the street, so much fun to visit!
Such a unique shop with lots of wonderful mystical gifts. A fantastic addition to Bar Harbor. A variety of art and jewelry from local artists. Friendly and personable staff. Always smiling and happy. An overall great atmosphere and experience.
Not to be missed! Downtown Bar Harbor is lovely all around, but A Little Mad is particularly worth a stop. It’s eclectic, high quality and just a pleasure to stroll around in. We were in the middle of a two week road trip and not expecting to have to travel carefully with art the rest of the way, but that’s exactly what happened. A piece from their display of The Hidden World of Eloise inexplicably made me emotional. A moment later when my husband walked over and had the same reaction, it was clear we needed to have it. The owners were inviting and informative. Their gallery was truly a highlight of our trip.
My favorite place by far in Bar Harbor. The owner and his son are always friendly, the shop always has such perfectly curated collections for purchase. Its so perfectly whimsical! Theres a bit of something for pretty much everyone.My favorite surprise came last year, when I discovered that they now have travelers notebooks, refills, and now fountain pens and inks to pair with them!I look forward to stopping in every year!
Very interesting place to shop for local art.
Fun shop. A little pricy but comparable to all the others in the area. Some very unique items I have not seen elsewhere. Personable staff.
Crisp shop with a great mix of art. Charming.
This place is amazing. Very reasonably priced art of all styles. The owner is so helpful and kind. So many styles of art, funny, serious, vibrant, big, small. Theres something for everyone here. Make sure you go here.
I cant say enough about the owners and merchandise. We bought three awesome pieces of artwork (to start our collection) and we hung them as soon as we got back from our trip because we were so excited! The owner was filled with information about everything we looked at in the store. Its filled with things for everyone and not just the normal things you find in every store. We will be back and we will shop online. So excited to have found this place!
Great unique stuff. Friendly staff
Absolutely fantastic shop full of eclectic surprises! Highly recommend, you will love it all or nothing. Patric, Jolene and Jeffrey make the store.
I saw a sign for this shop and had to check it out based on the name alone. Turned out to be a gem of a place. Such a great variety of things to look at and buy and while I had gone in with the intention of picking up something for family, well I didnt. I splurged on myself instead. While walking through and talking to the owners who were more than personable and fun I saw fountain pen ink and travelers notebooks. Then Patrick showed me a fountain pen and it was on. So unexpected. Best shop I visited and certainly not typical. Love the TWSBI, Patrick!
The most whimsical and wonderful little shop on MDI.
A fabulous find. Full of wonderful, unique objects.
We love this store and buy a piece of art from here each year we visit bar harbor!!
Great place to find the unique and strange, last time I was in they seemed to be changing into more of a art shop but I hope they can keep the candy and smaller stuff that makes it such a unique place. Over all worth the stop.
What an awesome store/gallery to see and get a unique gift for yourself or someone else!! Great customer service the guys there were fantastic and so helpful!! Cant wait to go again!!
Very friendly, extremely helpful.. Certainly one of the better shops in Bar Harbor.
Just wonderful! Check out the Spiritiles, you wont be disappointed. Theyre lovely, something for everyone.
Great little store with unique art items and incredibly friendly staff/owners. Definitely worth stopping in to find great gifts for the people back home.
A neat local Gallery that carries many crafts made locally or in the USA. Has Paintings, ceramics, etc. Friendly staff.
Fantastic art gallery full of both geeky and more conventional art, all of it lovely. Not to be missed when visiting.
Unique gift items. Great customer service. Would recommend for shopping in the area.
Unique treasures for every soul.
