Neighborhood Spotlight: Fleet Feet and Pistils Nursery

Chase the clouds away with two Slabtown favorites that opened recently at The Carson. Fleet Feet and Pistils Nursery specialize in two different fields, but at both places you’ll find a welcoming staff ready to share their expertise. While one helps you get outside and enjoy nature, the other helps you bring it inside. Both feed the soul, serve the community, and deliver great customer service.

Pistils Nursery

The second location of this charming plant store is now open! It’s an excellent place to browse on a rainy day when you need a little pick-me-up. They carry an extensive selection of hard-to-find houseplants, including tropicals, succulents and cacti, plus the work of local ceramicists, woodworkers and weavers. The staff can help you identify the perfect plant for your lifestyle—green thumb or brown thumb — and make sure you know how to care for it. It’s also a fantastic resource for gifts. Their unique plant displays will wow anyone on your list. It’s a great addition to the Neighborhood.

Fleet Feet
The go-to athletic shoe resource for Portland’s running scene, Fleet Feet combines the latest technology with classic customer service. Expect a detailed assessment including 3D imaging of your feet and a thorough gait analysis. The staff are experts and really take their time to help you try on a variety of options as well as counsel you on inserts and socks. Whether you’re a road runner or a trail runner, training for distance or speed, they can help you out.
