The Great PNW

Shopping local can take some effort, but the rewards can be pretty great. There's the satisfaction of finding something totally unique or even handmade, along with the joy of discovery when you stumble onto a shop that totally elevates your style. Not to mention, our local shopkeepers are experts in their field. You can trust the staff at Audrey's, for instance, to guide you to a bra that actually fits. The experts at Walker's Furniture will not only help you pull together a living room that looks great, but they'll work with you on finding pieces that stay within your budget.
