Paxton Gate Portland

This should be a "worth the detour" stop. We always make time to stop here when we're in the area.

Paxton Gate Portland

Eclectic shop with all kinds of taxidermy animals such as turtles to coyotes. Also, rocks, minerals and flowers are for sale. I really enjoyed seeing stuffed nice wearing tiny hats, shoes, and dresses!
