Style Find: Portland General Store
Filed under: Style Find | Posted by:

Etsy powerhouse Portland General Store was founded in 2007 by Lisa Brodar in an effort to bring more nature and authenticity to men’s and women’s grooming products. Their fragrances, lotions, shaving creams are all made in small batches by hand using basic and natural ingredients with scents like Tobacco, Whiskey, Cardamom, and Wood.

As to why she started Portland General, Lisa explains: “I’ve always been interested in health and well-being, and that spilled over into the choices I made when I started Portland General Store, which focuses on high quality, organic, and vegan products using as few chemicals as possible. I’ve incorporated a vintage pharmaceutical look to my products that is reminiscent of the past when there might have only been one general store in town to get all of one’s goods. I actually believe we’re heading back to similar times — as all of these large corporate chains collapse around us and oil prices go up, I believe more people will be living in small, walkable cities, or “yogurt towns”.”

Find Portland General Store on Etsy.com or at Steven Alan in Venice.
