"Pop in for a visit. You'll find something or two things you can't live without. Staff is very knowledgeable in their products and passionate about their work. This place takes pride and detail in their work. Stop by for a peak."

"Robin made the perfect table for writing and music. Its design is simple, the materials are high quality and the size is spot on. I highly recommend something custom if you can’t find the perfect piece at his retail store."

" favorite purchase from Etsy by far. The quality is incredible and it was just a wonderful surprise to get something that far exceeds what you expected. The shipping was super fast and the seller communicated throughout the sell, shipping and delivery. I will definitely be back to buy from this seller again. Thanks to the seller for such a great experience."

"Step into a world of handmade art pieces that will make you gasp in awe. I casually strolled in to see what this new shop had to offer, and fell in love with a hand carved teak seated Buddha in a red robe. He is now seated in our yard, watching over the house and garden. If you want to add a beautiful custom piece to your house, whether it is a piece of furniture or a hand carved piece of art work...this is the place to go. Thanks, Robin."

"A great source of creative hand carved statuary and more. Definitely a must see."

"When I entered The Merchant’s Collective for the first time, a seven-year search for the perfect entertainment center came to an end. There, I found a gorgeous teak piece that seemed as though it was made to be in my living room. And it definitely brings everything together. In fact, there are so many gorgeous one-of-a-kind pieces at the collective that you will be hard-pressed to walk out with only one item! Friendly, knowledgeable attention from Robin Ady, the owner, and reasonable prices make this a small business I hope stays in the neighborhood for years to come. Thank you, Robin, for ending our search!"

Slice Lantern Illuminated

"I have been very pleased with the stone lantern I purchased. I love the unique selection in the store, items were really great quality, and the customer service was very helpful and friendly. I'll definitely be a return customer!"


""We purchased a hand carved greenstone Buddha, which we love. The service from merchant’s collection was outstanding. Shopping during the covid pandemic can be tricky, and contact with the owners allowed us to make our purchase without entering the shop. We haven’t found any statues in Portland that are as beautiful as these, and the prices are very reasonable. Thanks for such a great experience."

"This store has some very cool style! Not like the others in its category, they've got some unique and beautiful pieces, and the store itself had a good setup. Customer service was great, I appreciated the knowledge and care that went into helping us make a decision. We had a nice experience shopping for a sink that was carved from a large rock, and we'll definitely be back."
