Closed January 21st.

After much thought and consideration, we have decided the shop will be closed on Saturday, January 21st.  Grasshopper is run by a team of women and participating and standing in solidarity with the Women's March On Portland is incredibly important to us. 

We're sorry for any inconvenience this might cause.  
We will be open normal hours on Friday (10a-6p) 
and Sunday (10a-5p) and hope to see you then!

Supporting Small Business Community Through Bad Weather

While snow can be magical, and staying home can be fun sometimes, 
 it also puts a strain on small businesses.  

To encourage small business shopping and support during these harsh weather conditions, we will be joining dozens of small, local shops (including our sister store, Tumbleweed Boutique) and taking 10% off of all gift certificates. 

To find a list of other participating shops, click here

We hope to see you in the shop soon!  Stay safe!
