    So, these people from away are going to decide what is best for them regarding vendors.  You can forget about any vendor from eastern or northern Maine being selected. Just another case of people who live in Southern Maine trying to dicatate what is and what is not representative of Maine. Seems a bit discriminatory to me!!!

      The unfounded assumption that the owners will discriminate against vendors from other parts of Maine is clearly based on the poster’s own prejudices against people from the south of the state and ‘people from away’.  It’s not only the Baldwins’ right as business owners, but also in their best interest to find the best products regardless of what part of the state they come from.  We should be glad about the fact that Maine is actually attracting business, and particularly a business that promotes local vendors. Good luck to the Baldwins – it looks like it will be a great addition to the Portland area.

    There is no indication on the first floor that there is a second floor, it would be nice if they had signs.  I started up the stairway and only saw a handprinted sign saying to get to the Salvage company go to main door.
