Don't Drop: Shop!
Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co.
Need something for your home? Maybe for your office? Want it to look really, really cool? Drop in what just may be Portland’s hippest indie home and office retailer where you can get endless assortments of bed linens, bath linens, chairs, tables, sofas, rugs, pens, papers, mirrors, candles, pillowcases and, of course, super mod locally made lamps.
Lark Press specializes in custom wedding invitations, save the dates, baby announcements and business cards. And they also design and print their own line of letterpress greeting cards and exclusive ephemera including notebooks, notecards, recipe cards, prints and tags, as well as what we feel are some super cool letterpress coasters and (if you wanna impress your sweetie), e.e. cummings letterpressed poetry cards.
Queen Bee Studio & Store
Less than four years after hitting Portland's retail scene, Rebecca Pearcy's Queen Bee has once again expanded. Her now 800-square-foot shop remains in the same location, but now there's twice as much space to provide Portlanders with things they need, like handmade wallets, cases, diapers bags, coasters, tea towels, pillows, and bicycle panniers.
Nat'l Indie Retailers Week: Go get those bicycling panniers! Then thank your favorite retailers by sending letterpressed gift cards written ‘neath the light of a very cool locally made lamp.
