Pick up a gift for a friend or treat yourself at one of Sanford’s shops. Historic Downtown Sanford shops take pride in supporting local makers, so you can be confident that when you’re shopping in Sanford, you are shopping local!

Magpie’s Modern General is stocked with handcrafted items that are funky and functional, ranging from socks to jewelry, and from sunglasses to all-natural household cleaners. A few steps down the street, The Rosie Lee Co. will transport you to the time of vintage apothecaries and five and dime stores – don’t miss the large selection of loose leaf teas! While there book a treatment at Antidote Apothecary & Spa, specializing in plant-based spa services that are vegan-friendly.

Try on authentic lederhosen and dirndls at Hollerbach’s Outfitters (wear your trachten to the Willow Tree Cafe for a treat). Bring out your inner goddess with magical gifts and apparel at Triple Goddess Treasures, and browse the beautiful jewelry and fashions at The Cute Boutique.

But if you’re looking for home furnishings, visit Rustic and Pipe Decor for industrial and farmhouse style fixtures. Across the street, Board & Brush will satisfy your DIY and “Pinteresting” needs with paint and wood sign workshops, making for a terrific girl’s night out!

Bookworms and record addicts will feel right at home at Maya Books and Music. The cozy bookstore, covering all genres, will occupy you for hours. For the kid in all of us, don your superhero cape and visit SMASH Comics and Games for all things DC, Marvel, and fandoms beyond.
