Retail Store - We stopped selling Red Pig tools in the old shop in Boring in 2019. Currently you can arrange to visit our home-based workshop in Lake Oswego (Open by Appointment). We are still looking for a new, permanent retail home and studio base for customers of Red Pig Garden Tools to visit us in the Portland area. But until we find just the right spot - a neat spot with character where you can buy tools and see us making them - we will continue to make the option available for visits to our home-based workshop.
If you are in the Portland area and want to pick up some tools in person, need a custom tool made or personalized, need a tool fixed or sharpened, or just want to order online and pick up in person to save on shipping, let us know. You are able to place an order online for pick up or call/email to make sure we have the tools you are most interested in buying in stock and then come by with an appointment. If you want to order online in advance, choose the "Local Pick Up" shipping option to avoid shipping charges. If there is a shipping charge, we recommend placing the order with your Payment Option as Pay By Offline or Check - we can take debit/credit cards or cash at pick up).
We are doing visits by appointment to make sure no one makes the effort of coming by and not finding us around. Regarding masks and COVID protocols, if you'd like to come inside and choose tools yourself, we do ask you to wear a mask while inside. If you'd like to remain outside and have us bring tools to you, masks are optional. Thanks for understanding.
About the former store in Boring: It has been several years now since Bob retired from Red Pig Garden Tools (in 2017) and Seth took over. Red Pig Garden Tools are no longer available in the former store in Boring. You can still find Bob and Rita on their property, and the barn shop is still open (look up Red Hammer Forge for contact info and hours). Instead of Red Pig Garden Tools, they will be selling other interesting things. Bob will continue to repair and sharpen tools for customers who find Boring more convenient than Lake Oswego, as well as do custom blacksmith work.
