Rare Earth, a worldly retail treasure celebrating 42 years of business in Southern Oregon, has opened a neighborhood shop on the circle of A Street in Ashland’s Historic Railroad District. Rare Earth’s irresistible affection began on the Ashland Plaza in 1969. With young friends rooted in the 60’s and a fun groovy community, Rare Earth quickly became an Ashland icon. Thanks to all that have enjoyed the stores throughout the years!
Upon entering our new Rare Earth you step into a world of fun and joy with music playing from your favorite artists on a big screen TV and the aroma of scented candles and incense. You’ll find very special and unique gifts from all over the world, from beautiful imported glassware in stunning colors to delicately hand carved wooden furniture from Tibet. Our store front garden area boasts petrified wood log rounds from Indonesia for casual seating. Click on the image slideshow below for a bigger picture.
