    Default Uke shops in Oregon, Washington?

    As the title suggests, any shops you'd recommend in the Pacific NW, south of the border?

    Jim,

    In Portland, we have Artichoke Music, Portland Music Company, Trade Up Music, and several other music shops that carry ukuleles, but none are solely ukulele shops. I am probably missing quite a few. Plus, we have luthiers who live in the general area, like Kerry Char, Mya-Moe is located in White Salmon, WA in the Columbia River Gorge, etc.
    Bend has Snow Dukes Ukes. Eugene has Pacific Winds.

    You may not be referring to anything this far south but Cripple Creek music in Ashland is a fine place to visit. Instruments of all kinds. I know there are nice shops in the Portland and Eugene areas but I haven't been to them.

    We had a recent thread on Uke shops in the Portland area and how few of the major brands are represented here. Pacific Winds in Eugene OR however is a bright spot. I've only been once but planning a visit there soon. Kanile'a, Koaloha, and many other nice instruments in any price range,

    Thanks for the input all. Sounds like there will be a good selection when I visit the area.

    A big thumbs up for Dusty Strings - I'm visiting Seattle this spring and I'm hoping I can talk the rest of my family into letting me break away to visit.
