Our Story

F.T. Brown Merchantile & Marine Chandlery Co., located in Northeast Harbor, opened its doors over 100 years ago by Sylvester Brown. Five generations later, you will find the Brown family, ranging in ages from 5-92, working and sharing moments together…just like we did 100 year ago. We are a year-round business and have a long history with the community. We love listening to our customers stories of when they were little and how they remember coming to Brown’s with their parents, or even their grandparents. Our store ties them to their childhood and memories of their past. Our merchantile has grown and evolved over the years to accommodate our customers needs. Today, we are a store that can meet your needs from home to garden to the sea. Our newest additions are outdoor apparel, reclaimed home goods, whimsy gifts, pet supplies, Waldorf wooden toys and delicate linens for the home. In 2018 we became a Zim Sailing dealership offering a wide range of dingy sailboats and the exciting new RS 21. Stop into our store for a step back into time and enjoy a pleasant shopping experience. We look forward to serving you.
