Question
Hi, I have a stamp I cannot find any information about.
1.  State of Maine Department of Labor and Industry, Bedding and Upholstery Stamp, 1c Green. --- Does Scott's list this stamp, if so what number/identifier.  If not, is it listed in any catalog?  Value?

Answer
Scott does not list state and local revenue stamps.  Yes, there is catalog for these items.  The State Revenue Society published a catalog in 2003 and a new edition in 2013.  Details on the catalog here:  http://staterevenue.org/srs_catalog.html

Your stamp is relatively common with a catalog value of less than $1.00 to the best of my memory.

Specific information, including a scan of the appropriate catalog page should be available from the APRL or your other favorite philatelic library.
