Holiday shopping for something a little out of the ordinary? It’s a pretty good bet that you’ll find it someplace along State Street and Main in downtown Pendleton.

That’s due in large part to Pendleton’s reputation as a sweet spot for mom and pop stores, one-of-a-kind art boutiques, locally owned shops, and trendy upcycled, consignment and/or thrift stores.

Here are some of our favorites – perfect for pre-holiday meandering – especially when you are looking for unique gifts.

  • The Gypsy Shoe, Art and Funky Junk, 116 W. State Street. Trendy, chic accessories.
  • Pottery Hound, 136 N. Main Street, Home décor and gifts.

We’ve got those places all along downtown Pendleton main and side streets, too.
