If you need a gift, a card, a doo-hicky, something cute to wear, and so much more, then get thee self into Presents of Mind!!
The owner has amazing taste and has done a fabulous job of selecting products that are cute, stylish, useful, different, and fun. If you find yourself wandering Hawthorne it's worth a stop just to look around. But be careful, it's hard to leave without buying something...if you're anything like me it's hard to leave without buying too much! :)
The staff have always been incredibly friendly, the owner is an absolute gem, and the store is a place I could get lost in for hours. If I had to point someone to one store that represented Portland the best, this would be it.
Go. Go now.
