Where can I buy a good Futon?

Question about futons
A friend of mine wants to buy a new futon. She thinks the only source is in Vancouver, but I told her I thought there were several good places here in Portland. I do know about Cotton Cloud, but does anyone else have suggestions? I like to encourage local purchases. Thanks in advance for any information.

I know it's still in beta but... 27.Nov.2007 18:37

You might want to try searching for "futons" at  http://lokiloka.com/portland. It's a guide to locally owned small scale businesses with a nice interface.

Thanks for the good information. I went to that LokiLoka site and found it very interesting. I will be sharing this information, so keep up the great work!
