Agave encourages all visitors to take part in their charity “Jeans Exchange”. That means you bring in used, clean jeans for an additional 10% discount on the fancy new ones you’ll buy.  The collected jeans go to local non-profit organizations “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” and “The Arc of Clark County”, while the additional space in your closet goes to TBA.

Every other Tuesday: Home and garden ideas, fashion trends, stories, and images from Portland's rich design scenes. (See an example!)
