Hello, Portland!!!

Hi all.

By which of course and especially I mean Portlanders. A charge to inform, please.

My near dear friend is going to your environs Sunday. She will be breaking her back for some sort of camp, drive, family love-in plus friends wedding tour with her two boys, 2 and 4 and her dear whatever may care spouse.

It is required on this trip for her sanity, and perhaps the safety of the boys, that she get two good hours shopping in Portland. Where can she go??

The query is: A great and interesting shopping area with a sideshow for the men-boys close by? Where do you do that?

You need not be a Portlander to apply for this offer. Any and all intel is highly sought after. Thanks!

ps.. she is a beautiful statuesque blond who always needs clothes yes, but she also loves to garden shop and select nice things for her stylish home.

More thinking is on the way, but as a first idea - she could shop on NW 23rd (http://www.nobhillbiz.com/) while the boys take a walk in Forest Park (http://tinyurl.com/27mfbp).

For other shopping areas - NE Alberta St has nice clothes shopping, also N Mississippi Ave (http://www.portlandneighborhood.com/alberta-street.html and http://www.atthemeadow.com/shop/index.php?main_page=page&id=7)

If driving is no problem, the family can drop her off and head to Jamison Square (fountain made for jumping in). Chris notes there are lots of shops in the Pearl District, where J Square is. Also in that area is the streetcar, good for entertaining the short set.

Best bookstore ever is Powells on 11th/W burnside.

Too much? Not enough? Will keep thinking.

Wish I knew it better. I have only been there once. Nice blog. My first time here. If you have a chance stop on by my blog and you can win a super hero cape for one of the boys?
