Portland City Guide: 21 Places to Shop (Sustainably) in Portland
One thing we love about shopping in Portland is that although there are quite a few local boutiques and shops, they all seem to have their own personality and offer a unique shopping experience. However, what makes shopping in Portland even better is that sustainability, eco-friendly style and supporting local makers is definitely high priority.
