Featured Shopping — 09 October 2012

 

For kids who grew up in the punk scene (or anywhere near it), one will remember the hours spent in record stores and how a few of those hours weren’t even spent looking at records. One could wile away the hours looking at all the political and music zines. Funky publications that brought us skewed news from the underbelly of society.

The newest addition to Portland’s literary “hub” (Powell’s is across the street) is Division Leap and it’s basically made for those misfit kids who’ve grown up. Part book store and part art gallery, one could spend an inordinate amount of time in this place given its limited square footage. From modern literature to underground poetry and vintage punk flyers to art by Yoko Ono and Patti Smith, this store will keep you engaged for hours. Given the size of its counterpart across the street, it’s a real feat to have carved out an identity with original things to offer.

This one is for the daydreamers.
