It is hard for local businesses to stay afloat and Amazon has been such a jerk about it. But shopping local is a treat in Portland and we are loving our Christmas goodies from neighborhood shops (and friends) like-- Ham from the Woodsman market Helioterra wine from favorite neighbor Anne Dinos and lincoln logs and earrings (thanks sweetie!) from Division's Aster and Bee More dinos from Hawthorne's Kids at Heart Chocolate from Moonstruck Bike stuff from Universal Cycles Books from Powells
And, uh, Anthropologie. Not local, but Mrs. Santa couldn't pass up these latte bowls.
