LOCAL GOODS

Founded in 1977 as a 900-square-foot store-front in a condemned saloon, the homegrown business (now owned by Williams-Sonoma) still produces much of its original lighting in an 87,000-square-foot factory in town. Its latest collection, NW Modern, is inspired by 20th-century architect and conservationist John Yeon; look for the aged-brass West Slope Faucet and Yeon Double Sconce on Pinterest boards aplenty.

DRINK

Sunset food editor Margo True's rave recommendation led us to Kachka ($$$; kachka pdx.com), whose bowls of Siberian dumplings and hot and cold zakuski pair perfectly with chilled shot glasses of Horseradish vodka. Produced under the restaurant's Troika Spirits label in partnership with New Deal Distillery, the 750-ml. bottles ($28) are currently available only in Oregon. Trust us: It's worth checking a bag to bring back a few.
