The Lovely Idea Company

The Lovely Idea Company opened in the spring of 2020. The business slowly chugged along through the pandemic, managing to stay open and active through that challenging period. They have just moved locations to 130 Main Street and are excited to reopen in April. Their mission is to create spaces that improve mental wellness through classes, workshops, retreats, support groups, and shared flex space both online and in person. Increasing accessibility for those in need is their priority. By integrating their shared values of connection, creativity, compassion, and community, they’ll provide opportunities to grow, find joy, self-reflect, and connect. 

The new location on main street will offer shared flex space. A limited number of memberships will be offered, starting at just $75/month. Flex space access will be Sunday - Friday from 7:30 am - 6 pm. The flex space model offers more than coworking; a community is created which invites users to create, connect, and rest. The Lovely Idea Company believes that investing in intentional community creates a foundation of well-being for all involved. Future phases will include community day passes to use the space, classes, workshops, and support groups. With growth, hours and offerings will adapt.

Downtown Farmington

Farmington, the Shire Town of Franklin County, is nestled in the foothills of Maine’s High Peaks, only 45 minutes from Augusta and 90 minutes from Portland. We are the gateway to Maine's Lakes and Mountains region, and we invite you to stop along your way.

Not sure where to start? Take the Walk Around Farmington trail. Soon you'll notice that Farmington is one of Maine’s best-preserved downtowns. Here among our beautiful historic buildings, you will find a wonderful array of independently-owned shops and eateries, farmers markets, and contemporary professional services. Locally-made goods highlight quality Maine workmanship and friendly faces appear in every doorway.

Spend a day with us--park (for free!) in one of several convenient locations, lose yourself in our eclectic shops, enjoy a meal (without having to drive!) and finish with a movie or a cultural event at our University of Maine at Farmington campus.
