As summer winds down to an end in the coming month, we've been busy updating and keeping our retail store stocked with all sorts of fun merchandise. If you don't live in Portland or don't have a vacation planned, don't fret! While we can't pay for your plane ticket, we can give you a virtual tour of our shop! Let's get started, shall we?
Upon entering the store, immediately to your right is a massive collection of vegan books (and beautiful pottery made by the lovely and local Jeanette Zeis). We stock everything from Health & Nutrition to Baking & Cooking to Animal Rights and Ethics to Fitness. We even have a special section dedicated to kids! Want to take a closer peek?
Straight ahead is a table covered with a wide variety of wallets: tri-folds, bi-folds, wristlets, canvas, synthetic microfiber, zipper closure, snap closure, patterned, screen printed, and more. You will definitely (hopefully!) find the wallet you've been looking for on this table.
To your left is a wall lined with shelves holding the tees, hoodies, and sweatshirts that keep everybody looking fashionably compassionate... All folded to perfection. Don't know your size? Call us and we will do our best to help you find the right fit.
Near the bookcases, you will find stickers and buttons - only $1.00 each! Get some for your bike, car, laptop, lunchbox, and bags. We just released some new designs that you will likely love. See the full collection of stickers here and buttons here.
Heading toward the back of the store, you will find our bright and newly-painted card room, with an array of cards suited for all occasions, plus small art prints, fancy soaps, and selection of designer bags and purses. We managed to pack a lot into a small space and still keep it tidy!
When you leave the card room, grab a new belt, guitar strap, camera strap, pair of socks, or a handbag. The back wall has an ever-rotating display of colorful accessories.
Once you leave the back wall, you can browse a long counter that stocks bow ties for cats (yes, really!), body butter, solid perfumes & colognes, and jewelry.
And then, you reach the checkout station, where one of our smiling faces will be waiting to chat with you and place your fun purchases in a hand-stamped paper bag. Did we mention that there's free stickers at the checkout counter?
That wraps up the tour of the Herbivore retail store. If you ever have a chance to visit, we'd love to see your smiling faces!
Did you notice that we have some brand new stickers available on our website? It's true! Make room on your bike, laptop, car, and arms because you're gonna want at least one of each - but probably two.Clockwise from the top: Compassion is Invincible, I Heart Vegans, Vegan for Good, I Love Animals Too Much to Eat Them, Bacon Had [...]
If you're just making the transition to veganism or know someone who is (hooray!), newly released Going Vegan is a comprehensive guide that will surely be an essential resource throughout the journey... and beyond. Best-selling cookbook author Joni Marie Newman teamed up with healthy-eating specialist Gerrie Lynn Adams to create a book geared toward helping anyone interested [...]
Last month, we started a fun “Item of the Week” program highlighting our favorite Herbivore merchandise at sale prices. It’s been incredibly successful so far–clearly our customers love a good deal!This week, as a tribute to summertime picnics, BBQs, and backyard gatherings (or colder breezes and indoor celebrations if you live in the Southern Hemisphere), [...]
Do you love salad? Of course you do! Although vegans often get teased for indulging in salads, let it be known that salads are much more than iceberg lettuce leaves, veggies, and vinaigrettes. They can be hearty and satisfying meals with a medley of components and toppings… Candied pecans and coconut bacon, I’m looking at [...]
Oh my goodness, how is it July already? We’re still stocking hoodies and knee socks here at the Herbivore retail store (you do know that we have a storefront, right?). But as the temperature begins to rise, tees and tanks quickly start disappearing from the shelves–a reassuring sign that summer has finally made its welcoming return.Our [...]
We've been getting boxes delivered all week with new goodies. Summer is a busy time for us so we try and stock up with lots of cool stuff as the travelers start arriving. Portland has become quite the vegan tourist destination and its always fun to work on a busy summer day when people from [...]
We live in Portland, Oregon, home of the lingering winter of drizzling days in the 40s or 50s. It's not brutal, like when we lived in Chicago, or when I was in school in Boston, but it does get tiring right about now every year. We have come up with a plan to encourage spring [...]
We are excited about this limited run Good Luck Elephant shirt! It's a loose fit, with a longer tail than usual, for better coverage. So many ways to wear this garment: lounge around with tights, dress it up with heels, you can make this shirt do whatever you want. It's a nice recycled polyester/cotton blend [...]
We are very pleased to announce the launch of our newest design! We did this one on women's cuts as well as unisex and the fabric is really soft and comfortable. It is 50% organic cotton and 50% recycled polyester (made from plastic bottles) and is made in the US. The printing also has a [...]
