Generally, when people talk about furniture and other items made in China, the feeling is that the goods are made there because they can be made cheaply in China's vast factory complexes.
This is not the case with items purchased from Denali. The items here, while they are made in China, are in the style of old Chinese craftsman, or in many cases are in fact the real Chinese article made 100+ years ago. To the Chinese these would probably not be considered antiques, but here in the USA these are valuable and unusual Asian artifacts.
While large, heavy furniture is obviously not the type of thing most travelers would want to purchase, some of the small sculptures and art artifacts might be of interest to some.
What to buy: While large, heavy furniture is obviously not the type of thing most travelers would want to purchase, some of the small sculptures and art artifacts might be of interest to some.
What to pay: It is doubtful that you will be able to negotiate prices from the tag price, but you might try.
Just across the Sellwood bridge from SW Portland is...Sellwood. More or less a suburb of Portland known for the many antque shops here.
While not my bag, the parents love this place and didn't get enough of it on their quick visit to town.
If sifting through old junk is up your alley, Sellwood is the place to be. Some good shops and friendly people.
What to buy: Antiques of course.
What to pay: Honestly, I have no gauge for this one.
