Local and Ethical Gifts and Guides

Maple Landmark

We are proud to be able to offer safe, fair-trade toys to children thanks to Maple Landmark.  As a child, Mike Rainville made cribbage boards for the neighborhood kids, which led him to launch the small town toy company in 1979, known today as Maple Landmark. 

Nestled in the charming, rustic town of Middlebury, Vermont, Maple Landmark prides itself on 99% of services and materials being locally sourced. This contributes to the creation of jobs and safe working conditions for the locals.

Maple Landmark uses ethical manufacturing practices, ensure product safety, and minimize waste by recycling wood scraps into kindling wood (which is given away for free). Additionally, Maple Landmark continuously gives back to their community, donating free toys to local charities as well as supporting organizations for children with special needs.
