Welcome to the coolest consignment boutique in Western Maine! You'll find unique items at great prices.
I opened Wears & Wares just over a year ago in February of 2023. I am delighted to have realized a vision that combines my love of reducing waste and repurposing; art; and community. I look forward to bringing you high-end women's clothing; men's clothes; and vintage items. I will also feature salvaged items as well as workshops.
The shop features items on consignment as well as my own repurposed and vintage items. The carefully-curated collection is always changing so you will want to stop by frequently. Thank you for your business and for supporting the western Maine region.

There is always something new at Wears & Wares thanks to the
hundreds of consignors who support our vision.

Wears & Wares Cares
We believe in giving back to our community so we created
Wears & Wares Cares.
Clothing items are consigned on the shop floor for two months. If the consigner chooses to donate clothes to the shop after they expire in two months (which the majority of our consigners do), they are then sold on the sale rack and a portion of the proceeds of those sales will go to a specific organization doing important work in our community.
In 2023, more than $1,200 dollars in cash was donated to the following:
Safe Voices; LEAP; Literacy Volunteers; Martha B. Webber Breast Care Center; United Way of the Tri-Valley Area; Lewiston Recovery Fund through the Maine Community Foundation; and the Farmington Area Ecumenical Heating Fund. In addition, thousands of dollars of clothes were donated to organizations around the region,.
Wears & Wears Cares' recipient organization for February is the Western Maine Play Museum.
Organizations are also welcomed to set up an account and encourage their staff and community members to consign items to benefit their cause. Current organizations include the UMF Johnson Scholars Student Emergency Fund; LEAP, Inc.; United Way, Old South Church; and Safe Voices.
