Recently I needed a place to purchase a client gift and was reminded by a friend of Canoe in downtown Portland. Of course! There's a great mix here of the beautiful and the practical, many times both are achieved in a single piece, such as their Heath pottery collection. From modern birdhouses to tiny bud vases, items are usually both functional and beautiful and are priced well for token "I'm thinking of you" gifts through extravagant "Making a statement" gifts.
It's just the kind of place where you'll see something that you realize, quite suddenly, you cannot live without. More pictures and gifts.
