It is an exceedingly strange thing indeed to say a hardware store is an attraction worth visiting whether or not you have anything to build, but that’s exactly what Hippo Hardware, the most Portland hardware store ever, is. Photographers have staged photo shoots in the store’s otherworldly environs, like the sea of vintage lights and chandeliers that make up the store’s top level. It’s the kind of place Tim Burton would swing by when finishing his kitchen remodel.
