Our Visit of Portland Precious Metals: Referred by a Steemit post!

in steemsilvergold •  last year  (edited)

@hempress randomly followed Steemian @summertooth, who's acct. pic was a Steem Silver Round made by @pit-bullion, which lead to @elamental (me) seeing a post published by @summertooth about a local silver shop called Portland Precious Metals. Wow, that was a mouth-full of Steem-story. (There is also another @steemsilverround, that is community designed & currently managed by @sevinwilson).

After reading @summertooth's post yesterday, and realized this store was only 4 miles from where I am located, we decided to drive over there. I picked up several awesome items during our visit, but nothing I received surpassed the item I came for:

A Pour'dland .999 6 Troy oz Hand Poured Silver Bar
In the shape of the state of Oregon

This bar was actually poured by Michael Kakoullis, the owner of Portland Precious Metals. Here is a video of him actually pouring the molten silver into the mold to create these bars.

Michael is very welcoming and willing to work with you. He has many well priced options for investment items including some gold. To visit his website & order online CLICK HERE.

I had a wonderful, friendly, and communicative experience at this store today, and was very happy with the items I was able to acquire. In addition to 3 Morgan silver dollars and the 6 oz bar, I was surprised when I unexpectedly found a U.S. $1 silver note from 1957, which I also had to have. Here are pics of the rest of my acquisitions from PPM today:

Michael even gave me a $2 bill as part of the change I received.

He even has fish art made of coins he picked up from a wine gallery. There are penny and nickle fish for sale on his wall!! I thought these were incredibly unique.

His store front is a beautiful little hidden gem in S.E. Portland, right next door to The Amberlight Cannabis House.

There is also a beautiful mural on the building directly across the street from PPM

Here is all the contact info if you are interested in visiting, and/or purchasing any of Michael's items. I highly recommend Portland Precious Metals to anyone in Portland that is a silver enthusiast. It is worth it to go just to get a Pourd'land bar if nothing else. It is just such a cool cultural silver artifact from a city that is known for its art and culture. @kennyskitchen, @alchemage, & @queuevius: check this out my Portland silver buddies. You can also email him at: [email protected]

Right on @elamental! Glad to see you made it over, and documented the place pretty well. Yeah, Mike, the owner/pourer was a good guy and this place will be a stop when I pop into town. Nice post too. Take it easy brother.

Agreed. Thanks again for the tip bud! So happy I got one of those bars! It pays to be in Portland, & to be on Steem. Never underestimate the power of Steemit, or Portland for that matter. I am saying that mostly to myself lol.

Pretty cool shop and owner 👍

Thank you for checking it out.
