Small Business Saturday 11 | 25 | 17
Small Business Saturday is more than just a slogan for us here at Arcadia. Partnering with local business is at the heart of what we do, and it shapes who we are. You won’t just get a design team when you come to Arcadia. You get deep roots in our community, and you’ll know that you’re helping us help others.
It’s important to us to forge deep connections with our remarkable Pacific Northwest designers and artisans. The love that those makers pour into their work reflects the care that our customers put into their homes.
Why shop local?
Did you know that local, independent companies put three times as much money back into their local economies than chain businesses? Small business owners are more likely to be invested in their communities, and work to make them stronger. They’re our friends, neighbors, and family. That’s what you support when you make the choice to spend your hard-earned money at local businesses.
Besides, we think shopping local is just more fun and fulfilling. And you might just get better service and a superior product. Want to keep Portland weird, or at least keep it interesting? Supporting and keeping small, independent shops and restaurants open means preserving the character we treasure.
That’s what backing small business means to us. We make each other stronger.
Local Makers, Local Pride
We work with local makers of all kinds here at Arcadia. One of our favorites is Big Fir Designs, a local woodworking company that works with reclaimed and salvaged materials. You can see one beautiful example of their work here in our showroom. This gorgeous piece was made just for us, and we can’t think of a more fitting way to display even more lovely goods by local makers.
When we partner with a business like Big Fir Designs, they’re able to support local arborists, artisans, and other local suppliers. You can get your own custom piece from Big Fir, too. Our partnership means that we can all work together to create a beautiful, unique piece that’s perfect for your home.
Check out these videos learn more about Big Fir Designs as well as some of our other local partners, Murray Photography, Seek & Swoon, and Vermillion Drive.
News and Upcoming Events
By the way, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that November 1st was our one-year anniversary in our Cascade Avenue location, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Thank you for all your support, and the opportunity to serve you. We hope to celebrate many more years together.
