When I moved here I thought I would desperately miss my proximity to all my favorite retail stores. I am by no means a shopaholic, if I had to pick between shopping or walking on the beach, the choice would be easy, sand over shopping any day. But let’s face it, there comes a time in every girl's (and guy's) life where they need or would like a new piece of clothing to spice up their wardrobe. Little did I know that this fabulous town I was moving to had everything I needed within walking distance!
Yesterday I had an hour break during nannying and I was able to walk into town, get a gorgeous vineyard vines top, cute white capris, and black peep toe heels for the next night’s charity event. The whole shopping experience was effortless and relaxing. Now it does help that I'm a local so I know Caroline who owns Green and Pink Tangerine and she knows exactly what I love, but regardless she is good at what she does. She knows clothes, she knows fashion, and she carries all the designers I could hope for! And to top that off, she’s nice, personable and has great taste! At Port Shoe I didn’t know the girl that helped me personally but she too was knowledgeable, accommodating, and extremely friendly.
The Closet, in downtown Kennebunk is always advertising the new in-style jeans, along with great tops and dresses for a fun night out on the town. Zen and Company in lower village Kennebunk has the most comfortable dress, shirts and skirts anyone could ask for. Then there is Carla’s, a unique boutique with fine clothes for everyone, and where my mother got her “mother of the bride” outfit, which was fabulous by the way! For the men, it is more limited, but what man needs numerous options anyway! Green Tangerine carries the essential vineyard vines men's wear, Dock Square Clothier has a great men’s section and for the more sophisticated man, Kings Wharf always has something for an outing. Portmanteau also carries great weekend and sports outside gear for men and women! The list can literally go on and on.
So whether you need a Kennebunkport memento or a fabulous outfit it's all within a short walk into town (or a quick car ride away if you want to go to Kennebunk) and the experience will always be enjoyable.
