Gift & Specialty Shop Shopping
Purchase an atypical gift or souvenir among eclectic, colorful, and classy items at A Little Mad. Hunt for unexpected treasures and choose from non-traditional local art, gorgeous home goods, and whimsical photography exhibited in this quirky shop. Everything on display is handmade and comes with information about the local artist who created it. Visiting this store is like taking a trip to a museum--the friendly owners are passionate about their merchandise and sell only things they'd buy themselves. Keep your eye out for the sign leading to the shop, as it is somewhat hidden from the main street and nestled down an alley. Put A Little Mad and other Bar Harbor attractions into our Bar Harbor itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • 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. It's so perfectly whimsical! There's a bit of something for pretty much everyone. My favorite surprise came last year, when I discovered that they now have traveler's notebooks, refills, and now fountain pens and inks to pair with them! I look forward to stopping in every year!
  • This is my favorite shop in Bar Harbor, hands down. The merchandise is always unique and have made for some fabulous gifts. The owners and staff are the nicest people you'll ever find, treating you as though they're inviting you straight into their home.
  • Just wonderful! Check out the Spiritiles, you won't be disappointed. They're lovely, something for everyone.
  • 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.
  • Unique gift items. Great customer service. Would recommend for shopping in the area.
