    that here in So California we had the wealth of second-hand and thrift stores that I know Oregon abounds with.  

    I lived in Bend for one year and every weekend was a treasure hunt through wonderful thrift shops looking for toys, books and other things for my brand- new kindergarten classroom at the tiny private school that had hired me.   I was able to furnish it well on my minimalist teacher's salary.  

    Around here (I live near Pasadena now) mostly all we have are Goodwill and Salvation Army.  They're pretty good, but nothing like what I found up north.  

    I agree you can shop locally and second-hand in Oregon and do very well with not much cash.
