  • Not to be missed! Downtown Bar Harbor is lovely all around, but A Little Mad is particularly worth a stop. It’s eclectic, high quality and just a pleasure to stroll around in. We were in the middle of a two week road trip and not expecting to have to travel carefully with art the rest of the way, but that’s exactly what happened. A piece from their display of The Hidden World of Eloise inexplicably made me emotional. A moment later when my husband walked over and had the same reaction, it was clear we needed to have it. The owners were inviting and informative. Their gallery was truly a highlight of our trip.
  • Fun shop. A little pricy but comparable to all the others in the area. Some very unique items I have not seen elsewhere. Personable staff.
