This week's Friday Feature is Presents of Mind in Portland, OR! They are located on historic Hawthorne Blvd and stock their store with unique items from local makers as well as other independent designers (like me!). They have gifts for everyone, including t-shirts, cool socks, plants, stationery, kids items, and jewelry. Both locals and tourists love this store. I hope I can get to Portland sometime soon so that I can see it myself!
I found the above photos on their facebook page... wow there are so many cool things! I'd be very interested in smelling some of those candles, and the airplants are so cute!
Here are some really nice yelp reviews that make me want to go there even more:
"Perfect store to find that thing you never knew you needed. They have a great amount of weird random items, cards, coffee mugs, soaps, jewelry and accessories. You will definitely want to take your time because every shelf has its own unique items. They even have a bit of a children's section." - Mikhail H.
"What a great shop! I would be in heaven if I lived in Portland and was within walking distance of this joint. It's quirky, and cool, chic, and fun. I bought birthday presents for people who's birthdays are months away! If you check in on yelp you get a 20% off coupon, but don't be a dope like me and forget to use it! I bought an awesome cookbook on baking with booze, yah! A super cute dish towel with two owls on it, and the item everyone needs...a pin for your hoodie which features a penguin sitting on a boat! Great prices I'd say, I don't recall being hit by sticker shock so it was all good. So much stuff I wanted to buy just because it was cute, or cool, but I only have so much room at home ya know? They have an amazing selection of quirky t-shirts, I kind of regret not getting a couple :( Def stop in if you're a local or a kind of tourist pretending to be local like me. It's a must!" - Jamie R.
"They have the coolest dresses, and they're reasonably priced. It is a great place to find gifts for all ages. They have cards and gift wrap as well." - Lindsey F.
