As a customer of NEWTW!ST, I have enjoyed their carefully curated collection of goods and consistent service from a motivated and friendly staff for over 20 years. Through my own positive customer experiences with local businesses like NEWTW!ST, I am inspired to maintain the high level of service we aim to provide at our South Eugene dental practice.

I often recommend local products and shops to my patients and always love when a patient introduces me to something special in our community. Sharing one of my favorite local shops with my practice is important since word of mouth is essential for a small business. That’s why I want to share something I value with those whom I value and offer an opportunity for my patients to win a $75 NEWTW!ST gift card.

NEWTW!ST is located in the 5th Street Market in Downtown Eugene. They feature a collection of high-quality items from local and international artisanal producers and artists – such as jewelry by Eugene jeweler Alison Shiboski and products from Will Leather Goods. NEWTW!ST is just one of the many examples of the vibrant and creative community that I am glad to be a part of and happy to share with the community of my practice.

I had a chance to interview NEWTW!ST owner Colleen Stangeland and learn a bit more about her and her business. Read on, enjoy and enter my giveaway for a $75 NEWTW!ST gift card!
