S.E. Belmont St. II

S.E. Belmont St. is quickly becoming a competitor to the nearby—and much trendier—Hawthorne neighborhood. And with shops from the downright delicious (Saint Cupcake) to the ultra-stylish (Za Zen), you’ll be ready to spend an afternoon discovering all of this southeast street’s charms.

Way less hip than its tattooed sister shopping mecca—the Hawthorne District—one main drag to the south, S.E. Belmont St. is a fresh mix of boutiques in which new and vintage house stuff share a store with cupcakes, or tea from afar is sold next to one of the city’s best tea bars.

This slice of Nob Hill is bound to give your inner-most self—from bookworm to chef to modern day flapper—some much sought after delight!

Shop Talk

Ground central for shopping Portland’s Nob Hill might be the cool boutiques and national home furnishing chains on N.W. 23rd Ave., but there are enough picks on this secondary street to merit a nine-block walk in the shadow of Good Sam. Just watch out for the aliens!  

Hollywood District III

Shop Talk

Whether you’re on the lookout for a unique wallet and handbag combo, an elegant claw-foot tub, or brand name sheets at non-designer prices, the Hollywood District is your new home away from home.

Hollywood District II

Shop Talk Stop and smell the roses in Northeast Portland’s Hollywood District, where there’s no end to the retro finds, oh-so-chic furniture, and quaint gifts for those who want to get away without leaving the city.

Hollywood District I

Shop Talk Driving down Sandy Blvd., you may get the feeling that this Northeast Portland neighborhood is one “hey” short of a heyday, but park and you’ll soon discover a quirky mix of shops worth exploring for a couple of hours. Shopowners who are small-town friendly and fun merchandise that often spans the globe make this “other” Hollywood a rising star on the shopping circuit.

McMinnville III

 Buy a custom-ordered frame for the new piece of artwork that you bought from the artist herself and then savor some chocolates with your new wine purchases…the perfect day in Oregon’s Wine Country!

McMinnville II

 From recycled flip-flops to wine tasting nirvana, spend an afternoon (or longer) enjoying the wares found in McMinnville—a shopper’s mecca!

Do you speed through McMinnville every time you drive to Yamhill County’s wine country or head for the coast on 99W? Next time, stop the car and explore downtown McMinnville. You’ll discover you’ve been missing a lot when you ignored that HISTORIC TOWN CENTER sign with the arrow pointing in the direction you weren’t going, but should’ve been! When you peruse the shops on pedestrian-friendly N.E. Third St., you’ll start empty-handed, but you’ll soon want several extra hands to carry all your goodies from wine and chocolate to artwork and, of course, that perfect piece of jewelry for your hard-to-shop-for sister!
