    Fun, bizarre, silly, kooky, irreverent collection of oddities. A fun way to spend some time inside on a hot day, lots of photo opportunities.

    This bookstore was incredible. It was the size of a city block, well orchestrated, great customer service and knowledgeable staff. Reference anything about a book and they'll know it and take you directly to it. My teen son could have stayed there all day.

    This outlet offers mostly womens’ clothing stores such as Nordstrom Rack, Banana Republic, Ross, Loft Outlet, etc. You’ll find the summer clothes at a higher discount now. One store offered an additional 40% discount off the last price. It’s time to hit these stores now if you’re looking for summer bargains. If you’re in search of home décor, you must visit Home Goods! I fell in love with their unique items whether it’s something for your kitchen or living space. They already had some Halloween decorations!

    The mall is located near the Portland Airport with several eateries nearby. A great place to grab a bite after shopping or for a quick visit before heading to the airport.

    Our hotel clerk at the Inn at Northrup Station gave us a coupon for a free cup of tea, so on day 2 of our visit to Portland, we visited the Stevem Smith Teamaker near Nob Hill. Nice people, you can sample their teas and drink in the wonderful aromas here. I ended up loving the tea and taking home a carton of tea bags.

    I've lived in Portland my entire life, and seeing the decline of one of my childhood malls is absolutely devastating. The recent remodel completely took away most of the character the place had, and now all of the anchors are gone. It's an odd mesh of modern and vintage due to the lack of renovations on the outside. The food court still has a few places to hang out at, but I don't suggest coming here if you aren't planning on just hanging out with friends for maybe twenty minutes. A lot of people in town may tell you there's violence/gang activity, but that is far from correct, as the most people you'll see is maybe a small group of teenagers hanging around in one of the wings.

    The security officers there are constantly looking for ANYTHING to do, as my partner and I have been escorted because we tried to sit in a chair together because the other chair was soaked with water.

    If you go here, the few places I suggest checking out are the food court and Suncoast Videos. Suncoast has a lot of neat candy and knickknacks as well as somewhat cheap movies. Other than that, I can only say that Lloyd Center is good for hanging around. However, if you like dead malls or want to see vintage architecture on the outside of the building, I suggest this. Specifically the ex-Nordstrom and Macy's entrances.

    In short, come here if you like dead malls and vintage architecture (only on the outside though.) Otherwise, you'd be better off going to Clackamas Town Center if you actually wanted the full mall experience.

    I wish I could write a review of this wine shop that is as hip and informative as this establishment...I can’t! I have been wine tasting well over a hundred times and experienced nothing that equals this. It’s a paradigm shifter.

    Jeffrey is very knowledgeable but specializes in relating wines to culture. My friends and I enjoyed our Game of Thones tasting. The wines were not GoT wines, they were biodiverse wines from around the world. The idea was to match the wine to the character descriptions for important GoT characters. Now, don’t be afraid, he can pour more traditional tastings and/or relate the wines to other cultural phenomena.

    Suffice it to say, everyone in our group loved it. If you’re in Portland and want a one-of-a-kind wine experience, check out Pairings.

    I stopped by in Made Here PDX to get a few presents before leaving Portland. They have a good selection of products made in Portland including dog treats, chocolates, jams, beauty products, cards, jewelry and others. I got treats for my dog, chocolate for my husband and a pair of earrings for me.

    The chocolate was fabulous and the experience was so warm and welcoming. Our walking tour guide, Sarah, introduced us to the shop and Christine, and we went back later to enjoy the amazing chocolate drinks and handmade truffles. 10 out of 10 would recommend.

    Oh and the chocolate, amazing. We went as part of a Forktown Food Tour, the people working there were really friendly and helpful. We learned a lot and went back after the tour and bought a bag full of salts and chocolates.

    I can say that this is, unequivocally, my favorite place in Portland. It's so fascinating and weird and amazing. It feels like walking into a museum, but of weird and fun stuff that you don't find anywhere else. Want a crochet diagram of a dissected bat? Got it. Fossils of two-headed snakes? Got it. Taxidermy bugs of all sorts? You know it.

    The whole neighborhood is wonderful, with Flutter right across the street. Go and spend some time in the area, but make sure to budget plenty of time for Paxton Gate. We go on every trip to Portland.

    I love the New Renaissance Book Shop and I try to go here several times a year, more if I could. I always find interesting books, ways of living, and an appreciation of diverse religious traditions. Beautiful gifts and a large collection of Buddhist singing bowls. Come with an open mind and be inspired!

    I had wanted to visit Portland for a long time. And, I finally made it and was enjoying my time. I wanted to bring back a piece of Portland's creativity with me and share it as well with others. We had found a nice shop for women's clothes named Say Say Boutique that had great items. But, there were no men's shirts. I was bummed. I asked if there was a men's place that they recommended, and they indicated Crafty Wonderland.

    Off I went. I wondered if the place would meet expectations. The shop definitely has some great items ranging from t-shirts, greeting cards, magnets, pictures, etc. Everything has a creative, local edge! I found what I was looking for.

    I go once a month .. my favorite thing about this place is the way the spices are set up in groups line vanilla it can be from Mexico or Madagascar.. if you love cinnamon it can be Ceylon or Saigon your choice .. you can make chicken kabobs with Turkish spice delish or chicken with green seasoning .. so much to look at .. my best spice mix is called Sunny Paris it’s expensive but boy oh boy you will get addicted to it ...don’t forget to pick up a kitchen towel or Two ..they are great with s fun saying ....
