Ferdinand: Maine's #1 Source For Drum-Playing Squirrel Baby Gear


Locals in both places wear nothing but LL Bean; they talk funny, and there's nowhere to park. It's no wonder people often get Maine and Boston confused.

The easiest way to tell them apart: Beacon Hill is in Boston, while Munjoy Hill is in Maine [Portland, to be exact]. If you STILL can't figure out where you are, just take a look around. If you see a store full of quirky plush toys called Softheads, and baby t-shirts and bodysuits with line drawings of a deer playing the accordion or of a squirrel playing a snare drum, the store's called Ferdinand, and you're in Maine. Voila, mystery solved.

Ferdinand also does wicked-nice custom lamp shades, and always has a small selection of vintage modern furniture for sale. Ayup.
