BedMart furnishes restful sleep with an arsenal of slumber-inducing mattress sets. The solid support of King Koil’s Arlington model ($779.95–$1,199.95) relieves bodies of the aches accrued from overworking pressure points and napping in ball pits, and Serta’s Perfect Sleeper Arborwood ($979.95–$1,399.95) a memory-foam mattress that cradles snoozers with detachable arms. Three comfort options for Five Star Mattress’s Stanwyck ($479.95–$799.95) can accommodate sleepers of all persuasions, from the hibernation-ready extra firm to the fluffy pillow top.
With nine locations throughout the region, Mattress World Northwest brings healthful relaxing sleep to thousands of Oregonian bedrooms. Sean Hathaway and Sherri Hiner display an unshakeable state pride through their long success as an Oregon-based company, curating a huge selection of pillow-top, memory-foam, and gel mattresses from brands such as Englander, Sealy, and ComforPedic, and sporting matching tattoos of the official state farm animal.
Staying true to Sherri's motto of "do right and sleep tight," Mattress World Northwest not only helps friends and customers rest easy with an abundance of brand-name mattresses, but also remains active in the community through support of the Portland Police Sunshine Division and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Often hosting open studio?where any and all are welcome to use the space to create art?ALT Creative Studio embraces a free and low-key approach to visual arts. For adults, 21+ classes led by professional artists allow participants to sip on self-brought wine while completing an acrylic painting using materials that are provided by the studio. Other disciplines include collage, mixed-media, and cartoon-drawing, while birthday parties celebrate both the endeavor of creativity and the millions of people who were born that day.
The philosophy at Gramma?s Farm Store isn't just farm-to-table?it's also farm-to-school, and, in some cases, farm-straight-to-mouth. The shop?which sells fresh, local produce from Pacific Coast Fruit Company to the community?strives to educate visitors about the importance of eating locally grown produce. To that end, they host frequent field trips so students can pick and taste the crops and learn about where their food comes from, sampling many items and enjoying other special events. And, of course, for those just looking to stock their pantry with fresh produce, the shop offers everything from berries and peaches to avocados and pumpkins, depending on the season, along with a selection of locally-made pies, salsas, and other edibles.
Throughout the year, Gramma's Farm Store offers a variety of farm-themed activities that inspire visits from families and home-sick grain silos. Berry picking gives parents and kids a great excuse to get outside and enjoy the summer, while in the fall, a pumpkin patch, corn maze, and hay rides help usher in the harvest season.
Perfection Farms is a throwback to the 'olden days.' Come visit our farm store in a new 1920s barn conveniently located just 40 minutes outside Portland, and sit on the front porch to chat and enjoy the quiet. We are committed to growing and selling only the best naturally-grown and/or organic fruits and veggies!
The volunteers at Wildlife Rescue Aid Project receive more than 50 striped skunks a year. Then they do what most people would not: they care for the skunks, provide food and shelter, and teach them how to hunt and spray in self defense. These rescued skunks and other mammals native to Oregon are often orphaned or injured and in need of extensive rehabilitation before they can return to the wild. So the volunteers ensure they find proper veterinary care to heal, and spend roughly 20 hours a day in a cycle of feeding and cleaning. When the skunks are ready to go, the volunteers identify each with a marker or cut a specific pattern into its hair to track its progress.
