Head north across the Piscataqua River Bridge and you’ll pass a sign that reads, “Welcome to Maine: The Way Life Should Be.” That’s what the L.L.Bean Home Store in Freeport is all about; it’s a celebration of the best of Maine living and a collection of all sorts of things you won’t find anywhere else.
As soon as you walk in the door, there’s no doubt you’re in Maine. It starts with dozens of one-of-a-kind, handmade items that would be equally at home in a seaside summer cottage, a ski lodge in the mountains or a rustic camp on a secluded lake. We search near and far for just the right accessories and décor to complement your style – including many pieces from local artists and craftspeople right here in Maine. Our merchants also scour antique shops, flea markets and craft fairs throughout New England for unique, vintage items like old weathervanes and funky salt-and-pepper shakers that fit right in with our Home collections.
Our store is also a great place to see, touch and try out the furniture, bedding, towels, doormats and other high-quality goods you’ve seen in our catalogs and on our Web site. It’s that balance of new and old, functionality and design, that sets our Home store apart. Where else can you find a hand-hooked wool throw pillow, a set of 400-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets and an antique wooden icebox all in one place?
We hope you can pay us a visit here in Freeport – we’re open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. And if you can’t come to Maine, we invite you to check out the Home department here at llbean.com or pick up a copy of our latest catalog. We’re happy to send some Maine living your way, wherever you call home.
