The Mangy Moose is Freeport, Maine’s original moose store. For over 20 years, we’ve been Freeport’s favorite source for moose-themed gifts, Maine apparel, taxidermy, and Americana. 

Locally owned and operated, the Mangy Moose is open year-round and features an eclectic, ever-changing inventory. We carry Maine apparel for the whole family, books galore, plush stuffed animals, glassware and mugs, and a huge selection of greeting cards. Most of the furniture in the store is not for display only – it’s also for sale. Our home goods include antiques, Maine-made items, taxidermy, and beautiful rustic pillows and art.

Step inside our store and take some time to explore! Our friendly staff, led by store owner Susan, are ready to help you find the perfect gift for any occasion. We look forward to seeing our regular customers and meeting new friends!

Freeport’s favorite moose store since 1996.

112 Main Street, Freeport, ME

On the corner of Mechanic Street, across from L.L. Bean. Parking is available in a lot behind the store.


A Jackson Hole, WY icon since 1967, the original Mangy Moose Restaurant & Saloon celebrated 50 years in 2017. 

Long known by locals and visitors as the place to stop for food and spirits after a long day on the slopes, by the mid-1990s, Mangy Moose was ready for expansion. Founders Pat and Jim asked long-time employee Susan to lead the new store in Freeport, Maine.

The rest, as they say, is history. Our store opened in 1996 and has been open for business at 112 Main Street ever since. Though Pat and Jim have since retired, Susan still owns Mangy Moose Maine and is in-store almost every day!


Locally owned and operated, the Mangy Moose employs a small year-round staff and a dynamic seasonal crew.

Many of our seasonal team members are “regulars,” including college students who return to Freeport during the summer. In fact, our store manager and keyholders all started as seasonal workers while they were students! We deeply value and appreciate our long-lasting relationships with our staff, just as we do with our customers.

Our team is ready to help you find the gifts and goods you love; we look forward to meeting you!
