Paxton Gate PDX

Inspired by a fascination with the natural world, and driven by a desire to create something unlike anything they had ever seen before, they opened the doors of Paxton Gate for the first time in December of 1992. In our original incarnation, tucked away from the beaten path in an alley off of Market Street, Paxton Gate was 300 square feet of eccentric gardening merchandise and featured curiosities inspired by the natural world. Soon after our inception, a predilection for the bizarre side of nature became apparent, and oddities such as rare insects and taxidermy began to creep onto the scene.
