Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.

For more than 35 years, the paint-your-own-ceramics studio has encouraged brush wielders of all skill levels to let their artistic instincts take over as they personalize premade bisqueware. A red façade and teal awning beckon passersby into the shop, where more than 1,000 ceramic figurines, ornaments, magnets, and vases wait to be brought to life with colorful brushstrokes, glitter, chalk, and jumpstarts from a car battery. Bricker Brac Ceramics’ expert instructors host classes, parties, and group events that guide unsure brush brandishers and foster creativity.
For the teams from MaidPerfectPDX, cleaning a home doesn't simply mean wiping away all of the dust and grime. It also means finishing the job by using as many eco-friendly products as possible. Occasionally, the staff members even make their own cleaning solutions using the same method Cinderella used to make her perfume: by mixing a base of pure water and vinegar and adding a splash of essential oils?such as lavender, vanilla, or almond?for fragrance. Armed with these hypoallergenic, family-friendly products, they thoroughly scour nooks and crannies throughout the home. The teams can dust reachable surfaces, scrub kitchen sinks, vacuum rugs, and wipe down mirrors, leaving abodes spotless without ever having to resort to toxic chemicals.
