Owners Stan and Judy Gillis will close the iconic American fine-craft and art shop at 901 SW Yamhill in downtown Portland on December 24. They made the decision in part because the building where the shop is will undergo and year-long remodeling and all the tenants need to leave by mid-January.

Beginning November 17, their will be the first-ever storewide sale through December 24.

The Real Mother Goose location at the Portland International Airport will remain open, the Gillises said.
