Boys Fort is a carefully curated collection of local, handmade products and vintage one of a kind finds. With over one hundred local and regional makers represented at Boys Fort, the product mix presented ranges from grooming products like mustache wax and beard oil to hand forged jewelry and leather goods to beautifully crafted furniture. Many local artists are incorporated into the mix, with a wide variety of styles for every taste and point of view.
Boys Fort began as a temporary PDX Holiday Pop-Up Shop in the Fall of 2011 at the historic Galleria Building in downtown Portland, Oregon. Conceived and curated by designers R. Rolfe and Jake France, it was a surprise hit and the public wanted more. After another successful turn as a Pop-Up Shop, this time in the lobby of the Sentinel Hotel, Rolfe and Jake started to explore the idea of a permanent brick and mortar. In the Spring of 2013 Boys Fort opened their doors as a full-fledged store on the corner of Ninth and Morrison Street. Boys Fort shares part of their space with a unique plant shop and full service floral studio, Solabee Flowers and Botanicals. Together the two entities have created a truly unique shopping experience in the heart of downtown Portland’s Pioneer Shopping District, neighboring the fashionable West End District.
