I personally did not think Artichoke Music (http://artichokemusic.org/) was that great. Wonderful store and atmosphere but only had like three or four Ukuleles and I think most if not all were Flukes.

Portland Music (http://www.portlandmusiccompany.com/) was decent. I went to the Broadway (https://www.google.com/maps/preview#!q=Address%3A+2502+NE+Broadway+Portland+OR +97232&data=!1m4!1m3!1d23432!2d-122.635746!3d45.54387!4m10!1m9!4m8!1m3!1d5591!2d-122.658631!3d45.520271!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1)aco ustic store recently. They had maybe 10-12 ranging from Fender, Lanakai and a Kamakala.

For number of ukuleles we had a lot of luck at Trade Up Music (http://www.tradeupmusic.com/). They have two locations but I preferred the north store (https://www.google.com/maps/preview#!data=!1m4!1m3!1d2928!2d-122.646037!3d45.5590003!4m25!2m11!1m10!1s0x0%3A0xf 540b0f555e3d8b2!3m8!1m3!1d22463!2d-122.689906!3d45.2712044!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!5m 12!1m11!1strade+up+music+near+Portland%2C+OR!4m8!1 m3!1d22463!2d-122.689906!3d45.2712044!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!17 b1). They had a great selection of Oscar Schmidt, Kala and Lanakai. I liked the room they had them all in.

The Twelfth Fret on SE Belmont, while mainly a guitar shop, had some ukes during the last month, including a Martin Soprano. Also, Vintage Guitars International LLC in Lake Oswego (south of Portland on I-5) carries Kanile'a and Cordoba. Best of luck.
