Supporting Local Communities
Every purchase, visit & share helps support to local Maine communities & small businesses!
Our Collective Shops
Here are a few of our shops that help provide some wonderful Maine-centric items! We take a little to cover costs & eventually grow but the profits go to local communities.
Apparel & accessories for feeling your best, in the best state! Some of our tastes might be a bit different from yours, but sleep well knowing that ALL profits from the sale of our items is DONATED to local Maine communities.
Family tradition meets individual flavor with bold, irreverent & occasionally sarcastic designs.
It helps if you understand sarcasm…

The Dead River Collective
What started as a project to help businesses & individuals through the tough economic times of a pandemic, quickly became a statement of homegrown pride.
The spirit of our family, friends and neighbors lives in us, and will continue to inspire our designs and products for generations to come.
To describe it simply, we are a collective of shops & collaborations with some of the finest that Maine has to offer.
Where does the money go?
We currently donate 25% of all profits from The Dead River Collective (www.TheDeadRiver.com) to the Natural Resources Council of Maine.
An additional 25% is donated to the Good Shephard Food Bank (Feeding America).
The remaining 50% is reserved for direct community support and contributing to establishing a base of operations for us. Though to be honest, we’re very generous people so we’ll probably give most of these funds to those that need it more than we do.
THE DEAD RIVER COMMUNITY TRUST
To promote the protection, preservation and conservation of land and water in the Dead River / Kennebec River Valley region of western Maine for the benefit of present and future generations.
As a land trust we work to conserve both productive working lands and valuable wildlife habitat.
