We are an outdoor store with a variety of new gear, clothing, shoes, gifts, games and toys for families who play outdoors. Resale items on consignment is also available. Our mission is to carry brands that best serve our community with products that meet our standard of fair business; from economical price points that can be approached by all families, environmentally-conscious design and production, with reputable companies that engage in charitable donations and outreach programs.
Chelsea L Ingle is the proprietor and business owner from Portland, OR. Her ancestry dates back to the renowned landscape artist Eliza R. Barchus (1857-1959), who was later credited in 1971 by the Oregon Legislature as "The Oregon Artist". Her original oil paintings & reproductions of western mountains and water features spread a romantic ideal of the West to the rest of the country with the most featured works of Mt. Hood, but also unique portraits of Yellowstone falls, Muir glacier, and San Francisco.
The business idea came to her after searching for a place to find quality outdoor gear for her family by a reputable & friendly source in the outdoor industry, represented by people experienced with children. Spearheaded by her son, the introduction of an exclusive store for kids was presented to the largest trade show Outdoor Retailer in 2016, and was considered a novel approach for the U.S. given most representatives had never heard of this concept before!
Our flagship store was established shortly thereafter in St Johns, Portland. We built a community of support and held tightly amongst waves of construction and development for 3 years before a sudden shift was to occur with covid-19. As luck would have it, we were forced out of our storefront before the virus & economic disaster hit, thus preserving the resources we needed to stay strong and build an online presence for the local community.
With economic recovery in sight, we will continue to arrange outdoor pop-up events until a new retail presence is considered again. We hope that our support online will continue throughout this must challenging time for business.
All profits will be donated to non-profit organizations that support a healthy environment & build strength in our community. Explore together!
