And... if you’re shopping for the people in your life that tend toward the darker side of things, Black Sunday: Gifts and Riffs is the holiday shopping event for you. On its third year and hosted by Altar PDX co-owners Amy Fox and Cassie Morgan, this event is full of apparel, jewelry, art, and accessories from some of Portland’s greatest alternative brands, including Iron Oxide Designs, Morgaine Faye, Wolf Child, Theeth Jewelry, Rogue:Minx, VAVA Lingerie, and MANY more. This year sees a change of venue for the event to The Alibi Tiki Lounge, so instead of live music there will be karaoke afterward, which will most likely skew toward rock and metal rather than whatever annoying songs people usually sing. More info can be found here. (Full disclosure, I am employed by Altar and Cassie is a Portland Mercury contributor.)
