Shop Visit: Porch Light



A true gem in Portland’s Pearl District, Porch Light is one of the best shopping spots in the city for home goods, plants, fragrance, jewelry, and other delightful sundries you might not have known you needed, but totally do. When thinking of Porch Light the words “charming”, “delightful”, and “homey” all immediately come to mind.



Stopping in recently, I found a plethora of cozy rugs and blankets, apothecary items, office and stationery supplies, and, of course, beautiful plants. I couldn’t resist the greenery and picked up a cactus and succulent to add to my plant menagerie at home. Not only does Porch Light have plants, they have beautiful planters, books covering various flora and interiors, and beautiful linen gardening smocks.




Not to be missed is Porch Light’s selection of romantic jewelry, much of it handmade here in Portland by designers such as Ay Marieke and Jesseca Anne. After you dress your home, I highly suggest picking up a bauble for yourself in addition to one of the lovely candles and wonderful fragrances on hand from lines like Societe de Senteur, West Third Brand, MCMC or perhaps a rejuvenating apothecary item from Herbivore Botanicals. Porch Light’s owner, Keiran Best, and her staff are all very helpful and just as sweet as the shop. It’s an amazing place to take in all the pretty, pick something up for yourself, or grab a gift for just about everyone on your list.




Porch Light is located in Portland at 225 NW 11th Avenue and is open daily from 11AM to 6PM or shop Porch Light online anytime for an abbreviated selection. Make sure to follow @porchlightpdx on Instagram on and Porch Light on Facebook to keep up on new items and upcoming events and important reminders — like exactly when they break out the complimentary holiday cider for shoppers (with a splash of something special if you’re in the know — *wink wink*).
