Holiday Shopping Guide: Miscellaneous

This is the category of "Everything Else" that I couldn’t fit on its own, for whatever reason. Some are suggestions, some are just single-entry categories. And, I wanted to more-or-less finish this out before it got too late to shop for the holidays.

The Home Brewer

Really the only place in town that sells homebrewing and winemaking supplies. Get someone the full package with a kit, or pick up individual supplies or brewing-related items. You can also enjoy some Silver Moon Brewing beers on-premise—that’s where the microbrewery is located, as well.

Wild Birds Unlimited

Yes, I know this is a chain store, but I’m going with Jen’s recommendation:

I know "Wild Birds Unlimited" (across from Barnes & Noble) is a chain but they seem to be very knowledgeable about the area.

Bird food, feeders, houses, accessories—everything you’d want to attract and deal with a variety of birds. It’s located out at the Forum Center east of town on Highway 20.

2680 NE Hwy. 20, Ste 310
Bend, OR 97701

Also a bit of a franchise, although Goody’s has been in downtown Bend for a long time—long enough to have become a fixture. Not only do they sell handmade chocolates and candies (including sugar-free ones), but their downtown store is also an old-fashioned ice cream store—selling cones, shakes, malts and more.

Bend Pet Express

The local pet store alternative to the chain stores. (Quick disclaimer: my brother works for them, too.) They carry a huge variety of pet supplies—everything you could want—and even make their own dog treats. They have two locations—east and west.

420 NE Windy Knolls
Bend, OR 97701

133 SW Century Dr
Bend, OR 97701

Iron Horse

This secondhand and antique store is located in a quiet, out-of-the-way spot just south and a little west of downtown. Don’t expect anything fancy—in terms of atmosphere—and that’s part of its charm.

210 NW Congress St
Bend, OR 97701
