About us

East Borough Shop is a nod to our love of cities and their neighborhoods, and recognition of the value of a home that affords some restorative R&R. The carefully curated offerings are inspired by passions for home, writing, travel, nature, and beautiful objects & archetypal imagery.

Owner & operator Amy Roy was raised in Chicago and lived in Eugene, San Francisco, San Diego and Sarasota before settling in Portland in ‘02—raising her son through East Portland public schools. She left a rewarding twenty-year market research career in 2019 to dig in with family, explore new paths and take on new adventures.

A lifelong appreciator of storefronts and an avid treasure hunter, Amy’s goal is always to find special spaces to peruse and procure—respites offering inspiration and accessible quality wares. East Borough Shop aims to provide such an inviting space, with layers of excellent offerings in homewares and personal spaces.

We hope to see you soon!
