Woohoo! So glad to see 20 new locally owned businesses open their doors this past month. A few that I’m really excited for:

Salt and Straw: Portland’s farm to cone ice cream shop, as they call themselves. I like to think of myself as a ice cream expert if you will. It’s a bit of a problem actually but that’s another story. I’m excited to head down to Salt and Straw’s new location at 838 NW 23rd Ave and try out their yummy flavors!

Hogan’s Goat Pizza: This is a family owned pizza shop that is reopening it’s doors after closing it’s Pearl district location in 2003. Their new location is 5222 NE Sacramento St. Currently it’s just for takeout but that’s usually how I get my pizza so I’m excited to give this a try.

Birds and Bees Nursery: Everyone who knows me knows that I’m kind of into gardening. So of course I’m excited for this new neighborhood nursery located at 3709 Ne Gladstone. Check them out!

Boy’s Fort: I’m always excited for all new shops in my own neighborhood of Kenton. This one sounds particularly awesome with “salvaged and vintage materials that are decorative, functional, or both, including candles, postcards, prints, bow ties, cigar-box guitars, custom-built furniture, handmade wallets and jewelry, and one-of-a-kind found objects, crafted by a collective of 60 to 70 artists and craftspeople!”
