Hope Bots

Posted by Julie Beckett on

Portland artist Gary Hirsch has added a new Bot to his line up of magical talismen. The Hope Bot proudly sports a pink hat and is here to help when you feel overwhelmed and paralyzed by the events around you.

Gary and Tilde have joined forces to donate all the dollars raised from the sale of these bots to the ACLU. In these overwhelming times, this little bot is here to help when you start to feel paralyzed. Keep it by your side and it will fill you with hope and optimism. Take your Bot with you for hope everywhere you go.

Each Bot is unique, costs $14 and comes in a box with a booklet explaining its powers. The Hope Bot is not available on our website due to its unique characteristics. You can email us at, call us at 503-234-9600 or come in to choose the right bot for you!

Planning for the New Year

Posted by Julie Beckett on

It's that time of year when we are thinking about everything we'd like to do over the next twelve (oops, now only 11!) months.  We've got lots of notepads, planners, pens, and journals in stock to help you with everything from scheduling the next week to daydreaming for the future.


Poketo's open dated planners allow you to start using them at any time of year-simply fill in the dates starting whenever you choose, and you're good to go!

These weekly list desk pads from Rifle Paper Co. let you plan your week, or sketch out your daily to do list-and double as a mouse pad.

We also love these blank notebooks from Rifle.  They come in sets of two, and are great for sketching, plotting, planning, and dreaming.

Whether it's your master plan or your wishlist, we've got your organizing needs covered.

Holiday windows - Arctic Animals!

Posted by Julie Beckett on

It's that time of year again, when we get to show off our holiday window display.  This year we've chosen a collection of wintry scenes populated by snuggly arctic animals.

These windows were truly a team effort, with Debbe coming up with the concept, our friend Darcy Dubose painting and creating the animals, and the rest of the team helping to hang everything and make it all look great.

 And while it might look chilly in the windows, inside we've got a collection of cozy scarves and hats, perfectly scented candles, and mugs to help keep you warm this winter. 


 We'd love for you to stop by to see the windows, and come in to say hello while you're at it!
