The Joinery Launches Holiday Gifts Made From Upcycled Lumber

Small pieces of perfection from our master woodworkers

The Joinery has designed a collection of small, handcrafted gifts for the holiday season. Traditionally known for dining tables and bedroom sets, The Joinery is featuring solid wood bud vases, woven trivets, and floating knife racks handmade in Portland by its master woodworkers.

Adhering to the company’s sustainability mission of recycling 100% of its wood waste, owner and CEO Jon Blumenauer challenged the team to creatively build small gift items out of the “off-fall” – or leftover scrap wood – from the manufacturing facility’s larger furniture pieces.

Ugly sweaters, Pop-Up Shops and free parking are back in celebration of the holidays

Downtown Portland is dressed up for the holidays —are you? Come do your holiday shopping downtown and enjoy some monumental attire around Pioneer Courthouse Square. Our statue mascots have some festive surprises in store for you.

Beginning Tuesday, November 10, some of downtown’s most iconic sculptures will don their holiday finery for the season. In the Pioneer District on Southwest Yamhill and Morrison streets (between Fifth and Sixth Avenues), you’ll see Animals in Pools, Allow Me (aka “Umbrella Man”) and Kvinneakt dressed up in festive ugly sweaters.

A team of local fiber artists will descend upon downtown and make these so-ugly-they’re-cute wardrobe changes on Thursdays through Christmas. You can join in on the fun: Wear your ugly sweaters downtown and take selfies with these yarn-bombed statues. Be sure to tag pictures with #uglysweaterpdx.
