The Road To Tibet Imports: The History
Updated: Nov 18, 2020
Hello! ( Tashi Delek | བཀྲ་ཤིས་བདེ་ལགས།། )
Welcome to the Road To Tibet Imports! We know, it has been a long journey. We are glad you finally made it! We'd prefer to see you in person, but there's a Pandemic going on. If you do decide to visit us please wear a mask!
Who are we?
We are a woman / POC / minority owned and family operated small business! Phew, what a mouth full! Nonetheless, we are proud of it. Our family works hard to embrace cultures around us and try to include them in our store. The imported goods we sell in our store is always hand picked with care by a family member in Asia.
When you come in, you'll sometimes find Yeshi's daughter (Sierra) running in and out of the store, creating content. You'll see Jonny and his friends eating burritos from the food truck down the street (Neza Food Truck = Best Mexican food EVER). We try our best to keep our store up to date and clean! Just know, our store radiates positivity and is full of life.
It all started with the journey of Yeshi Thompson. She came to the states following the American Dream. It all started with a booth at the Saturday Market in Portland, Oregon down at the Waterfront. For many years she operated this booth and raised two little girls.
Yeshi then opened a store located on Broadway in Portland, Oregon. After 10+ years operating the store on Broadway, she shut down business and took a different direction in her career.
10 years later, she opened back up her store, Road To Tibet Imports on Hawthorne Blvd. in Portland, Oregon! We have been here since 2008 and continue to share our culture.
