Five of The Captain Lord Mansion’s Favorite Dock Square Shops

We have been residents and business owners of the Captain Lord Mansion in Kennebunkport for 34 years. We have seen many of the shops in Dock Square come and go.  However, there are a few that have provided excellent shopping opportunities for many years. They have been the stalwarts of the Dock Square business community. We salute them. Additionally, we have been customers ourselves at each of these shops.

Compliments Gallery: For over 30 years Compliments Gallery has offered home decor that is original, artful and full of life. I bought Bev some beautiful gold earrings from here several years ago.

Coastal Jewelers: These folks specialize in Tourmaline, a unique and fascinating gemstone which is mined in our home state of Maine. Bev’s sister purchased a piece of Tourmaline jewelery here.

Saxony Imports: This store was here in the Port when Bev and I arrived in 1978. They carry a potpourri of gifts and souvenirs. Also, they are the approved purveyor for Llardro and Waterford Crystal.  If you can’t find a souvenir in Saxony Import’s, you probably don’t need it!

Flaherty Imports: I bought the most beautiful cable-knit wool sweater here some years ago and still love wearing it. Flaherty Imports has imported sweaters for all ages, as well as other imported knitted goods. We highly recommend a browse through this shop when you are in Dock Square.

Good Earth Pottery Gallery: This is another shop that has been a fixture in Dock Square for over 35 years. Owners Dave and Diane personally fashion each piece of pottery. Last year our niece and nephew purchased some items for their home in Colorado and bought us a lovely water pitcher that we use almost daily at home.

That wraps up 5 of our favorite long-lasting shops which are located in Dock Square. By no means does this cover the extensive choices of fine shops which are located there. We recommend many others too. Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield
