we don’t know about you but we find this shop’s name quite fitting because field trip has us wanting to do just that! located in portland, this charming shop showcasing the mountain landscape of artist lindsay fox adorning on its walls carries mostly self-care goods, as well as, home goods by small designers and makers from across the US.

the shop’s owner, kara green, worked as a fashion designer for over a decade in new york city but always dreamed of opening her own boutique. when her husband’s new job with nike brought them to portland, kara felt like it was the perfect place to realize her dream. and after noticing a self-care trend taking over in places like NY, LA, SF, and in her own life as a mother of two, kara wanted field trip to offer the products that she herself had come to depend on. some of her favorites are Ashwagandha by Sun Potion, Reishi by Moon Juice, and Best Skin Ever by Living Libations.

another cool aspect of field trip is their community space where they regularly host workshops. some recent standouts include a weaving class with brooklyn based artist Maryanne Moodie, an inspirational talk about Manifestation with Lacy Phillips of Free and Native, a women empowering talk with Sonja Rasula of Unique Markets, and an adaptogens class with Alison Wu to teach the community more about the superfoods carried in the shop. They’ve also done pop up shopping events with brands like Le Souk Le Souk, Tile Bar Espresso and San Johnny. to keep up to date with field trip, follow along with them on instagram.

  1. Oh yes! Field Trip is one of my favorite shops in town. I attended a shibori class when I first moved to Portland a couple years ago. I got to know Kara, became friends with the teacher and the photographer of the workshop during the same evening!
    I loved Sonja’s pep talk, Lacy’s manifestation talk, oh and the “Accelerate Business Growth through Chakras”!
    I cannot visit Field Trip and not come back with a little something. Kara has such great taste! My favorites: candles, crystals, and (natural) lipstick! Oh and all the great workshops and talks, obviously!
