Another favorite was Schoolhouse Electric. Oh man, so many good things here. You can check my IG feed for other photos. I really like that they had an RR Coffee inside too. It was a good resting spot and place to chat.
This is what I love about meeting other creative like-minded people in real life. So many ideas bounced around and overall goodness shared and these two are incredibly good people. So happy I got a chance to hang with them in my favorite city.
Some other great shops and local eats to visit while in Portland….
Powell's // I've made it a tradition to bring back books for Tyler from Powell's. I also discovered that they carry vintage/used books as well. Brought back some great vintage children's books that I reference often when designing.
Porch Light // Jamaica and I visit this shop often. They have great little vintage treasures sprinkled throughout their stationary, succulents and pottery.
Dick Blick // I like to stock up on art supplies while I'm here. Dick Blick has great prices and items I can't find at my local art store.
Salt & Straw // Kelly's go to sweet shop. :) Such interesting and delicious flavor combinations. The best part is that you can take your time and try as many flavors as you'd like without feeling rushed. Be prepared to wait in line. It's worth it.
What are some of your favorite travel traditions when visiting a favorite place? I'd love to hear about them!
