If you're into unique gifts and exciting local finds, you'll want to make your way to the town of Molalla. Cruise along the city's Main Street where you'll find some great shopportunities.
Par-Li Boutique is a cute store off of Highway 213 and 211 specializing in fun women's fashions. You can also shop online on their website or on Facebook where they do frequent live videos showing off the newest clothing or fun gifts they've ordered for the shop.
For interior décor and fun gift items, stop by The Rustic Shed on Main Street. It's filled with enough farmhouse and rustic interior decorating items to give your entire home a new look. They're open Thursdays through Saturdays from 10am–4pm, so plan your trip accordingly.
Another fun Main Street find is the Hoffman House Antique Mall. If you're someone who uses "antique" as a verb, you'll love this place. The Hoffman House is a treasure trove of finds from yesteryear, with something that will excite anyone. Think home décor to jewelry and even retro comics, so be prepared to spend a lot of time trying to see everything they have on site. And here's a bonus, inside you'll find Cowgirls Trading Company. This store within a store carries western and rustic clothing, locally made jewelry and even tack supplies.
Back to the Racks Boutique is just a short hop away from Main Street, located on Engle Ave... literally, it's just a block south. They specialize in gently used and new clothing items, including locally made products. Back to the Racks is where people who love a good deal and rehoming great finds need to visit when they need a new-to-them outfit.
For anyone who's a chocolate lover (we don't want to meet the person who isn't) Whimsy's Chocolate Box is a must-visit. They're a small, family-owned chocolate and fudge shop that offers a wide selection of sweets and other fun gift ideas. The next time you're needing a present for someone in your life with a sweet tooth, be sure to stop by here. And get a little for yourself to help prevent you from pulling a Forest Gump and eating some of their goodies on your way to their house.
If whomever coined the term "baked goods" had visited Las Delicias Bakery prior to coming up with the phrase, they would have called them "baked greats," because that's how amazing this place is. This family owned bakery opened in 2010 and quickly became a local favorite with their doughnuts, Mexican bread and pastries and stunningly decorated cakes. Bonus: they also carry fresh tamales, which are always a hit.
