Something local for you and yours
Need a last-minute gift for a birthday or baby shower? No problem. Wondering how you will live without a new Microplane grater or garlic peeler? Wonder no more. We carry a chef's selection of kitchen tools and cookbooks for every day, special diets and big moments. You can find all kinds of wonderful gifts at our stores including candles and greeting cards created by local artists and crafters.
Heidi Leugers makes these adorable breed-specific sheep ornaments in Portland using virgin wool and recycled wool sweaters. With a practice based on zero waste, Heidi recycles thousands of wool sweaters, using every last scrap and fiber. She also uses wool shorn from Oregon-bred sheep—and each ornament comes with a tag identifying the breed.
We carry Lindsoe Clayworks because they offer beautiful and affordable dinnerware that is tough enough for everyday use. Artist Dulcie Lindsoe-Johansen has been making handmade stoneware out of her home studio in the Cascade Mountains since 1980. We enjoy her entire line, made with lead-free glazes, often featuring Northwest and natural themes. Her work makes us feel right at home.
Territorial Seed Company
Cottage Grove, Oregon
Imagine a seed company run by local gardeners — folks who’ve dedicated their lives to understanding how every seed interacts with our rich Northwestern soil. Founded over 30 years ago by Steve Solomon — author of the home gardening classic Growing Vegetables West of the Cascades — Territorial Seed continues the tradition today under the watch of Tom and Julie Johns. This true family business has cultivated over 44 acres of seed “trial grounds” near their home of Cottage Grove, Oregon. Every year, their team tests thousands of seed varieties for taste, Northwest hardiness, and easy germination — often reclaiming and preserving heirloom varieties that have been forgotten for decades. Thank goodness our unique Northwestern territories have their very own Territorial Seed Company.
