Missisippi Avenue is full of indie gems, and two of them made a recent Buzzfeed list of awesome shops in Portland. No surprise there! Here’s what they had to say:
You can get anything plant-related at Pistils — indoor, outdoor, pottery, glassware, interior design and landscaping services — really, anything. They can even turn your thumb green in a terrarium-building workshop.
What started off as a store selling “eccentric gardening merchandise” by two landscape designers soon turned into a goth dream that looks like a stylish and creepy museum: Paxton Gate now deals mostly in taxidermy, rare insects, and animal skulls and skeletons. And it’s all ethically sourced!
