Updated: Nov 9, 2020

The holidays are coming! Checkout these retail stores and online stores for uncommon, unique, one-of-a-kind gift ideas.

Winter’s Makers Market

“Is a Portland (Oregon) area craft-fair that celebrates local small businesses and all things hand-made. Virtual shopping party on November 21st.”


“Focused exclusively on high quality and design savvy goods made within Portland and the Pacific Northwest.”


“A Portland, Oregon based shop with a passion for independent designers, simple forms, and gorgeous color. We carry home goods and gifts from all over the world, much of it created by individuals and itty bitty companies. We like doing business with the little guys because it means we get to work with real people--people who are brave enough to take an idea and make it happen without a giant safety net. By the way, woonwinkel means “living shop” in Dutch.”

With Love From Portland

“Portland’s most adored brands and artisan goods. Choose from one of our seasonally inspired curated boxes, or select from a variety of awesome local goods to build your own. All boxes are hand packed and shipped by us, with a personal note to your recipient. Curate gifts for your special occasions.”

Memento PDX

“Portland-owned shop with a fun mix of cute, classic and curious merchandise! Locally made cards, candles, jewelry, art and handbags. We have unique gifts for every occasion.”

Cargo Inc.

“Looking for a way to foster makers and artists and sustain endangered traditions, ceramic artist and folk art collector Patty Merrill founded Cargo in 1996. Bridgid Blackburn, interior designer, joined as a partner in 2008. In 2014, we moved to our current Central Eastside historic warehouse with its old-growth timber beams and soaring ceilings. Last year, Cargo evolved once again to become the Cargo Emporium, welcoming in-store shops from vendors sharing our ethics.”

White Rabbit Books & Gifts

“White Rabbit Books & Gifts is an independent bookstore in Oregon City committed to providing a unique, curated selection of titles and a lovely selection of gifts with an emphasis on local artists and small businesses.
