Little Boxes & The Hawthorne Holiday Stroll are this weekend!!


It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

We’re gearing up for the holidays by {stocking up, decorating, etc}. This month, we’re also excited to be participating again in Little Boxes, a Portland-wide shopping event that takes place the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving.

On a day traditionally dominated by big box retailers, it’s easy for independently owned small businesses to get lost in the shuffle. Four years ago, a few of the city’s boutique shop owners pooled resources to offer prizes and discounts to consumers who shopped a network of participating “Little Box” stores. This year, shoppers have the option to navigate participating shops using an iPhone app (yay, technology!), with chances to win raffle prizes including gift cards to some of Portland,s best stores and an awesome travel package.  It’s free to enter; just head into any participating shop on 11/28 – 11/29 to claim a raffle ticket.  Make a purchase to earn bonus entries and unlock a 10% discount at the next Little Box on your list.  The more shops you visit, the more chances you have to win!

We believe that shopping Little Boxes is a great way to find unique gifts for everyone on your list, have fun with your family and friends, and–just maybe–win some pretty incredible prizes, all by taking a stroll in Portland’s best shopping districts.

We’d love to see you out and about; we’ll have plenty of gift ideas & super jolly employees awaiting you!

Mark your calendars now! Friday, November 28th & Saturday November 29th, 10am-6pm. Plan your route and find more information at www.littleboxespdx.com/shop


This Saturday from 12:00-4pm is the 5th annual Hawthorne Holiday stroll!

Santa and friends will be at the Fred Meyer Deli dining area and holiday singers will be strolling the Boulevard. Businesses from State Farm at SE 51st to Jam on SE 23rd are hosting the KGW Toy Drive, collecting toys through December 15th for over 100 local organizations. Participants will have posters in the window and will be listed on the KGW website also.

Our 25th Annual Holiday Open House is THIS WEEKEND!

That’s right it’s that time of year again, the holidays! We know many of you would like to maintain your denial about the short time span between Halloween and Christmas, and we certainly understand that. Sadly, despite all efforts of denial father time marches on, and in 2 short months the holidays will be over and done with. We try to cushion the blow of this inevitable truth with a party every year, and this year is no different.

This November 8th & 9th we are having our 25th Annual Holiday Open House!!

Who doesn’t love a party? Especially one with prizes! Every year the second weekend of November we have our Annual Holiday Open House! We work diligently from the beginning of November right up until party time to turn our store into a holiday wonderland.

All our ornaments, holiday wrap, menorahs, boxed holiday cards, decorations & other holiday treats will be out before the big event.

We have stocked up on our unparalleled gift selection for easy holiday gift shopping. Many of our lines we will only get one order of this season, when they’re gone, they’re gone. Yet another reason to get your shopping done early, and relax while everyone else is fighting the crowds in December.

Our Open House is tons of fun! We do a prize walk several times an hour where we give out awesome prizes! We also have refreshments & free balloons for the kids!

Our Holiday Open House is this weekend November 8th &9th from 12pm-5pm. We will be open our normal hours of 10am-7pm both days. If you can’t face the holidays till December but still want to avoid our holiday crowds, you will be happy to know starting December 1st we stay open till 9pm Mon-Sat through the 23rd. Evening & morning hours of shopping are always less crowded, and therefore more pleasant. We hope you all can make it to our party, we promise you’ll have a great time!!
