Wanting to shop local this year? Have you checked out The Localist on Neighborhood Notes? The Localist is a business directory of locally owned businesses in Portland. Each listing includes business details, plus a description written by the site editors and reviews. Kind of like Yelp, but curated, reviewed and maintained by people who live, shop and love local. Search by neighborhood, business district or citywide for the best places to shop, dine and play!
And, while we're talking about local, here's a few locally made toys!
The game that thinks it's a puzzle! Race to fit your pieces into the matching holes. Play with family, friends or by yourself! Winner of the Best Toys for Kids 2012 award! And, it's made in Corvallis!
This local, Portland mom business creates eco-friendly, reusable bags just the right size for storing tiny toy parts and pieces. These have everything a parent needs: zip-top, carrying handle, machine washable, strong and durable. No more plastic bags. Perfect for travel!
Have a lovely day!
