When you walk the streets of Hillsboro, you're bound to discover some intriguing and quirky shops. Perhaps you'll find that vintage lamp you've always wanted, or maybe you'll find that rare record album you just can't find anywhere else. If you love your tea and your chochkees, we've got that covered too.

one of a kind finds

The first shop you see when you enter into town is Hubbart Wood, a wood carving art gallery which tells you that you're about to have a different sort of shopping experience. From the carefully curated finds of The Refinery  Vintage Goods to the more modern Blackboard Mercantile, we've got shops for the home that will address the need to personalize your space. If you're looking to feed your inner lumberjack/home improvement soul, check out the Hardcore Hammers store that sells their hammers and axes (assembled here in Hillsboro), while outfitting your self with locally made construction vests made by Atlas 46. Or maybe vinyl is your thing, and you want to find a copy of John Coltrane's Love Supreme album at Gold Pan Records.
