Browse gently used, upcycled and under loved household items. Shop for the perfect piece to finish a room on a budget or a groovy gift for that hard to shop for friend! Inventory is always being updated so each time you shop is like the first time!  

Do it all over again! (And tell your friends.)   

Be a part of the philanthropic revolution! Whether it is mowing a lawn, tutoring or knitting a mitten, EVERYONE has something to give. Come in and find out how you can make a difference.  


Yes! We would love to accept your gently used or under loved furniture and house hold items! That set of dishes you never opened, yes!  The single cup with a crack in it, not so much.  We are gratefully accepting new and practically new  winter coats for our Free Coat Closet event in November.

Sharon Setz and Lori Alice Friant founded The Ripple Initiative in 2016 as a nonprofit to benefit people who find themselves impacted by poverty or unforeseen circumstances in Midcoast, Maine. We are a grassroots neighbor-helping-neighbor enterprise.
