About Us

The happynest by maili collection is the spiritual & evolving expansion of our original store called beachology in Old Orchard Beach, Maine.

This sister shop in Kennebunkport offers an eclectic and unique shopping experience of creative home accents, beautiful accessories and thought provoking goods to elevate the art of gift giving.

We collect our inspiration from our travels, the people we meet along the way and the intuition of what makes us happy. We’re grateful to have this opportunity to cross paths with you.

Wishes granted here at happynest.

happy heart + happy soul = happynest
