my hippie friend told me thati should stop in eugene oregon on my way threw to california then on to burning man... what kind of places should i hit up if i go there... i will be there mid-late august.. any help???
she said the people were awesome and yeah.... where can i go there? i like to knit and sew and well everything... thrift stores. alternative clothing, book stores... info please
I lived in Eugene for 6 years. Here's my recommendations if it's not too late:
Thrift and Vintage Clothing Stores:
Deluxe - 1331 Willamette St
Antrican - 304 E 13th
Eugene Jeans - 132 E 13th
Nobody's Baby - 365 E 13th
2821 Oak St
Smith Family Bookstore 768 E 13th (it's upstairs)
another Smith Family is located downtown 525 Willamette
Pretty much all of these (except the Smith Family downtown) are within a long walk of each other up 13th St between U of O and Willamette St. The University of Oregon bookstore has good art supplies as well in the basement and books on the top floor. I recommend Deluxe; I go there everytime I'm in town.
Eugene has a lot of good resturants as well and a lot cater to vegetarians and vegans as well. I like the french toast at Studio One Cafe (1473 E 19th Ave) and the drinks and appetizers at The Lucky Noodle (207 E 5th). The Lucky Noodle is close to the 5th St Market, which is worth checking out as well. Some of the little cafes inside are great as well.
Hope this gets to you in time. If not, maybe it'll be useful for next time.
