Finn Ware owner Saara Matthews has deep roots in the quality Finnish and Scandinavian products found in her Astoria and Portland stores – her mom grew up in Finland and she still has family there. The passion she puts into her business and customer service is nurtured by the culture she’s identified with all her life.
Finn Ware’s shelves are stocked with an array of Nordic merchandise including Iittala, Marimekko, Ekelund, Fazer, Marabou, Sauna, Sisu, Uff Da and more. You’ll find linens, food, clothing, jewelry, home decor, gifts and Christmas items year round. Saara occasionally sponsors a Nordic jewelry-making class taught by professional artists for additional fun.
Finn Ware’s Astoria location has served the North Oregon Coast since 1987 and is known as a local institution well worth the visit. Its popularity led to the second shop farther inland in Portland.
