Oregon Shopping The Oregon lifestyle is town and country, home and garden, the great outdoors enjoyed and brought home. Art, culture and music celebrated and expressed in Oregon homes.

Small town shopping is a social event, a time to interact with people and build relationships that last a lifetime. From the historic downtowns of Ashland and Jacksonville in Southern Oregon, to Sisters, Redmond and Sunriver in Central Oregon, to Hood River along the Gorge, Antique Stores filled with treasures, boutiques, gifts stores brimming with decorative arts, art glass, candles jewelry and art galleries abound and are the center of Oregon Life.

From the hometown unique in small town Oregon to the uptown chic of Portland's international boutiques, Oregon offers a smorgasbord of shopping opportunities. Portland's Pearl District is a popular destination for strolling through art galleries and enjoying popular eateries. Tiffany's and Saks 5th Ave are located on N.W. 23rd in a district of exclusive shops. Niketown on SW 6th is yet another favorite shopping destination. Just outside of downtown, is Sellwood, an historic district of antique stores that is an antique lovers paradise!

From classic indoor malls, to strolling ocean front outdoor malls along the Coast, and Outlet Stores in most Oregon regions, there is no shortage of high fashion, or home fashion for Oregon Shoppers and with no sales tax, those visiting should take advantage of shopping in Oregon.

The Rogue Valley Mall in Southern Oregon offers anchor stores such as Fred Meyer, JC Penny and Mervyn's and many favorite national chains such as Baby Gap, Gap Kids, Bath and Body Works, Victoria Secret, Motherhood and dozens of others.

In the coastal region, the largest indoor shopping mall is The Pony Village Shopping Mall. Coos Bay's restored downtown is filled with Myrtlewood Shops, galleries and boutiques. North of Coos Bay, The Seaside Factory Outlet features Adidas, Big Dog Sportswear, Black and Decker, Coldwater Creek, Harry and David, Jones New York, Liz Claiborne, Nine West, Linen Barn and Oneida.

Perhaps some of Oregon finest shopping can be found at the Orchards, Wineries and Farms throughout Oregon where Oregon's exports can be sampled and acquired to enjoy at home. Harry and David, known world wide for luscious fruit, chocolates, gift baskets, sauces and preserves is located in Medford and open to the public. Oregon is known for it's wine country. Southern Oregon, The Willamette Valley and The Columbia River Valley's Wine Countries, are dotted with tasting rooms, many with award winning wines to take home and enjoy. The Tillamook Cheese Factory also offers tours and boasts ice cream dipping counters, a fudge counter, café and gift store. The Hood River Valley's pear and cherry orchards are not only a beautiful sloping scene at the foot of Mt. Hood but also make for great fruit stand shopping, (My favorite, Draper's Farm). Along the Coast, it's the cranberries of Bandon and their wonderful cheese that are savored and find their way into Oregon homes.

Whether you live to shop in Oregon or shop in Oregon to live, life is better when you have sipped an Oregon wine, tasted Oregon cheese, nibbled on Oregon cherries while driving through the countryside in a car that you purchased on an Oregon car lot where you didn't pay sales tax so you could buy another treasured antique in a historic Oregon downtown shopping district.
