Business Description The Smiling Cow is a unique, one of a kind gift store featuring an array of gifts, collectibles, books, apparel and many wonderful items made in Maine. Now in our 74th season, The Smiling Cow has been in the same family for three generations and is currently owned and operated by Meg Quijano, granddaughter of founder Margaret Hawkey.

Located on Main Street in picturesque downtown Camden, the Smiling Cow sits atop the Megunticook River – although you wouldn’t know it unless you stepped out onto the back porch to see the spectacular vision of water rushing over the waterfall into the harbor below. The back porch is the perfect place to take a break from shopping and enjoy a complimentary coffee or tea while looking out onto Camden’s stunning, boat-studded harbor.

The store itself is filled with an amazing assortment of wonderful gift ideas, vacation mementoes, jewelry, kitchen gadgets, greeting cards, toys, stuffed animals and a few things you may have forgotten to bring along on your trip to Maine… such as, a raincoat or lobster pickers, or some Mad Libs for the ride home!

The Smiling Cow is truly a Camden tradition and in the summer not a week goes by without a visitor announcing that they remember coming to the store 30, 40 or 50 years ago when they were very young to buy a piece of maple sugar candy or a new toy. For them, it’s wonderful to see that the place has hardly changed in all these years and for first time visitors it’s exciting to walk in off the street and find so many great things all in one place.

Of course, everyone who shops at The Smiling Cow is curious to know how we got our unusual name, so here’s a bit of background, and the answer to that question.
