This is the original Souchi that has branched out to 23rd. We carried this line of sweaters in a boutique where I worked. They were very popular with customers, who loved the concept of washable cashmere sweaters. Souchi has unique and original designs - gotta love that if you live in a world of button up cardigans!
Typhoon is THE name for Thai food in the Portland area. The food is incredible. Prices are higher than what you expect for Thai if you are used to eating in strip mall restaurants, but you won't complain when you are done with your meal.
Souchi is known for its washable cashmere. Their trendy, yet classic, designs are definitely not your mother's cardigan sweater! They use rich yarns in beautiful colors. You can often find scarves and gloves to match. If you want that coushy sweater that will last forever, find it here.
This store has unique and original home decor (with a nod towards 'green' decorating) and garden art. It feels like stepping into a really neat backyard. From copper fountains to concrete frogs, you'll find a nice mix of merchandise here.
Finally, my favorite comfort shoe store has moved to NW 23rd! You'll find what you need for your sore feet here, from Danskos, to Born, to Mephisto, this store sells all the high end comfort shoe brands. Lots to choose from!
Clog's N More carries a substantial line of feet friendly shoes. This is where I go to get my Danskos when I wear out my feet from running. These types of shoes are higher in price, but they last forever.
Silverado storefront is in an old home facing NW 23rd. It carries unique and fun sterling silver designs, some by local designers. Prices vary by what you want, from simple chains to elaborate designs. You'll find something you love here.
Ether is a trendy little boutique in NW Portland that carries fairly inexpensive handbags, shoes, etc. With great knock-off looks that are well-made (usually in vynil or fabric) you'll get a lot for your money here.
Navidis olive oil and vinegar bar is quite unlike anything I've ever seen. It's a store full of small vats of specialty and flavored oils and vinegars. The owner is very nice, all can be sampled. He convinced me to drink vinegar like you would down a shot...and it was delicious! The shop also sells teas and sea salts. I believe the owner when he says after trying some of the vinegars and oils on salad, you'll never buy grocery store dressings again. I hope it finds a following. It's too unique to lose.
This bike shop offers a select grouping of bikes for sale. They have great customer service. They service and repair all makes and models, sometimes while you wait. Whether you are a weekend biker or a road warrior, you'll find yourself a customer over and over again.
