Field Trip: Ink & Peat

When I first lived in Portland proper, back in the early 2000s, North Williams Avenue was not a place to hang out. There just wasn’t much there, aside from industrial buildings, and one of the first iterations of SCRAP (I remember lots of empty lots nearby). So it was pretty early in the street’s development when Ink & Peat opened here in 2008, and the area has been blossoming around them.North Portland shop Ink & Peat

They’ve been changing, too. They previously had a florist shop in the back, but they recently replaced it with clothing. It’s a great addition to their large assortment of textiles, homewares, jewelry, and gifts, and I’m excited to see them refine the selection.

Seeing their creative window displays is always inspiring. Aren’t those colorful hoop weavings killer?

They’ve got the local market on colorful soaps, candles, and textiles cornered.

With piles of crystals laying around, is it any wonder I like this place?
