Committed to supporting local, we carry a robust selection of products designed or made in Maine, as well as those that give back to charitable organizations. Although we haven't sourced everything from our backyard (yet), we are proud to have a majority as a certified Maine Made Retailer. Currently we are partnering with over 70 Maine Artisans who we represent in our boutique! Beyond our home state, our products represent small Makers from New England and the USA. As a small business ourselves, we are supporting other small businesses and if feels so good! Collaborations with Give Back programs are going strong too. In 2019 we partnered with Headbands Of Hope where purchases provide headbands and hats to pediatric cancer patients at the Barbara Bush Children's Hospital in Portland, Maine. We've added several thoughtful product lines that also give back to Veterans, Animal Welfare, Hunger Prevention, Land and Water Conservation, Education for Young Women, and we support Fair Trade Labor practices wherever we can. We like to call this our Darling Does Good Initiative. We are always looking for new ideas...suggestions welcomed!
