An employee confirmed today that the fox tails for sale at Paxton Gate (4204 N Mississippi) come from fur farms.

An hour or so later, about half a dozen Santas ho-ho-hoed their way into the store and let the owner and employees know that they did not make Santa's "nice" list this year, due to their support of fur farms, and would be receiving no gifts on christmas. Furthermore, they have been added to the "naughty" list and will be receiving lumps of coal in their stockings.

Hope to see you all at Paxton Gate's "GRAND OPENING PARTY" on DECEMBER 15!!!
According to the Paxton Gate website ( http://paxtongatepdx.com/), Vagabond Opera is scheduled to be playing the event. Hopefully they will back out of the engagement and refuse to endorse the brutality of fur farms.

The sidewalk in front of Paxton Gate was heavily chalked last night. No technology was available for documentation. I hope they enjoy the slogans.
