Top 10 Christmas Card Picks

It's time to send out those Christmas cards so your friends don't think you don't love them anymore! If you're looking for generic "Ho ho hos" and "Peace on earths," look elsewhere. Here are some hysterical cards to keep this Christmas spicy (in no particular order--all cards are created equal).


1. For your friend with #squadgoals

 Who doesn't want a little Tay-tay inspired holiday cheer?


2. For your friend who Instagrams at #PDX

 You know the type; they would never miss the chance to show off all of their fancy holiday vacations on Insta. Or maybe they're just going to Wisconsin, IDK.


3. For your friend who doesn't live in Portland (loser)

My city is prettier than your city!


4. For your friend who PITIES THE FOO'...

...who doesn't love Christmas.


5. For your friend whose cat is an asshole

And you swear every time you come over, he looks at you like he's plotting to kill you. 


6. For your friend who's a little too excited about Christmas



7. For your friend who's single (you're welcome)

Because she's a lady who should be treated right.


8. For your friend who will live long and prosper

They're a nerd, but you love them anyway.


9. For your friend who is OVER IT

Is it December 26th yet?

10. For your friend whose tree will definitely fall down

Poor little ornament didn't even stand a chance.

There's more where that came from! We're open 7 days a week so you can get that Christmas shopping DONE.

We'll be the first to admit that we don't know all the character names in the Star Trek franchise, and that sometimes we accidentally say, "Star Wars" instead of "Star Trek" (blasphemy). But our Trekkie-sense is adequate enough to know that the following items are MUST-HAVES for any fan this holiday season. 


For the classy Trekkie: gorgeous bamboo cutting board with USS Enterprise Lineage etched into wood. We've got coasters, too. | $32.50


For the stocking stuffers: enamel Spock (RIP) pins for your hat, purse, shirt, etc. | $9.50 ea.


For the Trekkie in denial that it's almost 2016: start the year off right and remind yourself every day what it means to be a die-hard fan | $14.95



 For the Trekkie who considers it a religion: light a candle and say a prayer to the Star Trek gods. They should be worshiped accordingly. | $19.95

Blame it on the Moon

It seems like ever since that cray Super Blood Moon thing happened last month, everyone's been losing their ish over all things intergalactic. We're following suit and giving the people what they want, naturally. With our new moon merch, you an easily fool people into believing that you totally know what phase of the moon we're in. Although, all that really matters is when there's a full moon, because it can make people act insane (and you're gonna want to be prepared for when that's happening).

Scroll through to see our newest additions, either moon or star themed, and all out of this world! (sorry, had to)

Moon phases cuff bracelet | $14.50

This adorable yet bad-ass engraved cuff bracelet is a great way to subtly show your astronomical interests. It probably even has powers to fend off all of the werewolves (more on that later). It's almost Halloween y'all, just sayin'.

Moon Poster | $24.50

This small poster packs a powerful and moony punch. Listing all of the names of the many craters of the moon, this poster is educational to boot. It's totally okay to geek out on this! Plus, it's shiny. Ooooh.

Oregon Constellation Poster | 14.50

"Alis volat propriis." Did you know that this is the Latin motto for our beloved state of Oregon? Translation: "She flies with her own wings." Damn straight she does. Hang this beautiful poster with a beautiful message in your beautiful home and never forget to JUST DO YOU.

Star Notebook | $24.50

Moon Notebook | $18.50

These two very different notebooks have one thing in common: the ability to record your deepest, darkest thoughts. If journaling or philosophical thought isn't your thing, use them to write notes to yourself, make sketches, or to pen love letters that you may or may not send. 

Constellation Onesie | $24.00

Never lose your baby again with this GLOW-IN-THE-DARK onesie. Sweet dreams are guaranteed for your little tater tot in this comfy yet stylish ensemble. Did we say GLOW-IN-THE-DARK yet?? Pretty sure wearing glow-in-the-dark anything instantly ups your street cred; something every baby needs. 

Wolf Mask | Priceless

Couldn't possibly finish this post without mentioning one of the main attractions at the shop right now. No mannequin head is safe at this point. This item is great for those who still don't know what they're being for Halloween or who think it's cool to scare your friends for fun. So let that full moon shine down on you while you howl into the night sky, communing with nature and your fellow wolf friends. Weirdo.

Leaving you with this food for thought:

It's like a cat lady's dream...

Happy October 1st, Portland! Anyone feeling spookier yet? Nothing says Halloween like a full moon, creepy owl sounds and black cat perched and staring at you like it would totally eat your face if you died alone in your apartment. 

Whoa, things just got dark real fast there. Let's shift gears and talk about all the fantastical cat-friendly gear we've got in the shop! Fear not, cat lads, there's stuff for you too.*

*Due to popular demand, Cat Flag tees now come in men's sizes! Crazy Cat Lads rejoice!

Let's kick things off with a couple of our favorite newest women's tees (sorry lads, you had your moment).

Because you're a classy-ass cat lady, you need this gorgeous shirt with GOLDEN KITTIES. Kitties perching, kitties stretching, kitties stalking their prey; all in a day's work for a kitty. Plus these shirts are super soft, soft as a kitty's tummy. Ok, not really, but AWW a kitty's tummy!! 

Hey, you little Grumpy Cat, you! For when you're just having a bad day Monday any day that's not Friday and it's a pain even to make conversation with the grocery check-out person, throw this on and everyone will get the message (psst, that's what the U-Scan is for). Your cat is probably the only thing you can put up with today, and if he's feeling generous he'll indulge you.

Oh man, aren't mornings always better when your breakfast is SHAPED LIKE SOMETHING?? Forget Jesus in your food, this is the really good stuff! This is not just delightful for kids, it's something that full-fledged adults with clap their hands and squeal over, too.


We need to take a second to talk about Cat Butt Magnets. Just one second. Did you know this was a thing? These little guys are going like hot cakes, even though they're kind of gross. But also kind of cute? Throw 'em on your fridge, but don't let them ruin your appetite.

Oh Baby!

All that baby makin' that happened this spring is 'bout to come to fruition, meaning it's time to get your butt out there and get yourself properly equipped for all of the upcoming baby showers. Your fertile friends have made the decision to reproduce and it's up to you to give them a fantastically awesome gift. 

These items may not be on their registry at Target, but who really needs practical items when they're expecting a baby? Below are some original gift and card ideas that will leave everyone at the shower super impressed with your originality and effort. Props, yo!

Ages 0 - 6 months | $21.50

Oh man, this kid is about to start pooping like it's his job. He should probably put "regular pooping abilities" on his first resume, because pretty soon he'll be in the professional realm of diaper deposits. Ok, we're feeling a little grossed out now. Good luck with that, parents-to-be!

Ages 0 - 6 months | $24.00

If you're in the market for something a little less vulgar, then this adorable little onesie might just be the ticket. A little less focused on bodily function, a little more focused on the cuteness overload.

Bill Murray says: "You wish you could be as cool as this kid."
0 - 6 months | $21.50

For the baby who you know will pop out of the womb already cool AF, a Bill Murray onesie is absolutely necessary. All you need is a pair of baby-sized sunglasses to complete this outfit and make all the other babies in the sandbox jealous.

Now that you've found the perfect outfit for ze bebe, it's time to find the ideal card to match. We like this one because it matches practical life skills to something unfamiliar (and perhaps terrifying), such as caring for a newborn babe. Don't worry, if you know how to roll a burrito, YOU'VE TOTALLY GOT THIS.

The perfect card from one lady to another. Because pregnancy scares... they are no laughing matter. Until you're pregnant on purpose and can reflect on your own ridiculous paranoia of yesteryear.

Try not to feel too much remorse for the loss of your youth as all of your friends begin to get knocked up. You might be left at home alone on a Friday night with your G&T, but at least you can have a G&T. They'll come back around sometime...maybe. Unless you have pregnant friends who are more like this:


If that's the case, you're all set.
