My question is just that...are there any stores in/around Portland that might sell a cool sling or even, dare I wonder out loud, a mei tai?

Any suggestions welcome! We're likely taking a little overnight trip down there tomorrow (15/16th), and would love to find something cool while there.

Thank you!

Well, we only got a chance to go to Mother Nature's. Lovely store, we bought some Kushies.
But the only mei tai-ish carrier they had was the Ergo. As nice as I'm sure the Ergo is, as soon as I saw how many clips and buckles it had, I nearly hyperventilated.
I'm just not that into clips and buckles!

So I talked to the owner for a LONG time about mothering.com, about mamatoto.org, and maybe I opened her eyes to a less high-tech (or as I see it, American) way of carrying babies...

Oh yes, I'm sure it's faboo! But when you start to sweat just putting the padded fabric on and try to figure out where all the buckles go...it's a clear sign that sling isn't coming home with you.

There was also the matter of the 92 buckaroo price tag...
