Psychic Sister

We don't know if we have ever been in a more aesthetically pleasing spiritual shop.  Seriously.  It just feels so freakin' good to be in this place.  Excellent vibes.  Wonderful staff.  Thoughtful intentions and premise.  Socially and politically conscious.  Woman-owned.  Amazing, amazing, amazing.  We always feel so inspired when we go here and always find the most beautiful items.  They carry most of the usual suspects (crystals, tarot cards, books, and other magickal gear) but keep it extremely interesting with a unique and quality selection of additional items that we've never seen before.  And how could we forget?  An unbelievable selection of vintage clothing!!!  Be prepared to spend some time (and resources!) in this establishment.  We can pretty much guarantee that you will find something here that you just can't live without!  And let's not forget - an amazing array of psychics are available to offer tarot and astrology readings (hence their name of course!).  Check out their website to see all of their intriguing and unique profiles.  We love how welcoming this place is, regardless of race, class, gender, spiritual preference - they open their arms wide to us all!  They have an online shop as well!

A recent discovery, this place is definitely a new fav!  Sooo much variety, excellent prices, unbelievably friendly and knowledgable staff, and just an absolute pleasure to spend time at.  In addition to their huge selection of crystals, minerals, gems, and stones, they also have a modest array of magickal supplies, such as candles, incense, resins, and herbs.  They also have an amazing selection of jewelry.  Oh - and even some super cool clothes!  A huge YES to this place!  Thank you Mystery Gallery and all of the people who work there.  Excellent shopping experience - and you can shop online too!

Nectar Cafe

This place holds a very special place in our heart - this is where we met!!  The start of it all.  We were actually watching each other for almost two years coming in and out of the cafe, but we were both too shy to make the first move.  Destiny finally had her way though and our first words to each other were spoken.  We haven't been without each other since that fateful and beautiful day!  But enough about us!  This lovely cafe has excellent vegan fare and scrumptious baked goods (mostly all gluten-free!), wonderfully friendly people, and a cozy, inviting atmosphere.  We sing their praises and recommend highly!  Women-owned too.  Yay!

The Fossil Cartel

333 SW Taylor St. Unit 150 | Portland, OR

https://fossilcartel.com

An excellent resource for all of your stone and gem needs.  Amazing selection of minerals and crstals, as well as a beautiful array of jewelry and other lovely gifts.  The people that work here are quite knowledgeable and wonderfully sweet.  We love our visits here!

New Renaissance Bookshop

1338 NW 23rd Ave | Portland, OR

https://www.newrenbooks.com

Their website touts: One of the largest spiritual bookstores and resources for conscious living in the US.  Need we say more?! Seriously.  We adore this place for all of the amazing variety of pretty much absolutely everything we need to support our spiritual and magickal practices (they do not have an apothecary though!) - books, crystals, incense, meditation cushions, tarot cards, gifts, tapestries, candles, everything!  They support a really wide variety of traditions too, which feels especially awesome.  If it is going to elevate your consciousness, you are likely to find it here!  And with a wonderfully inviting service team to boot, what's not to love?  We have sooo much fun at this place.  Oh yeah - they also host classes and events.  Check out their website to see their latest. 

Black Rock Coffee Bar
Various locations

No list of ours would be complete without mentioning this uber-friendly little coffee shop.  The coffee here is excellent and the people are some of our absolute favorites.  Such a gem!

Powell's Books | The World's Largest Independent Bookstore

1005 W Burnside St | Portland, OR

www.powells.com

If you live in Portland, you already know, but we just had to include this in our list.  We adore getting lost in this place, as they have everything you could ever imagine and absolutely everything that you never thought to imagine!  Absolutely awe-inspiring!  And if you're not a local to PDX, not to worry - you can purchase online and they will ship to you.  Awesome!  It is especially important in this day and age to support places such as this, so we don't lose them.  It would be a travesty to lose our bookstores!  And this one is especially special and holds a dear place in the hearts of many.

Ed's House of Gems | Everything for the Rockhound

7712 NE Sandy Blvd, Portland, OR

This place is great for bulk items and larger crystal specimens.  Excellent place to purchase larger amounts of stones and crystals to grid your home with or to create crystal healing layouts.  They also have a wonderful selection of fossils and really large rough pieces.  This is not to say that they don't also have a great selection of smaller specialized pieces, because they certainly do.  And the prices are awesome!  They also have some great pendants (I'm wearing a gorgeous Moonstone that my husband purchased for me from there!).  We love this place!  Definitely not woowoo though and not necessarily a 'spiritual' vibe to the place.  If you are looking for that experience, you will do better visiting Psychic Sister or The Mystery Gallery (see above!).
