Twilight retail and tour shop FOR SALE

Our loss can be your gain. Our family has to move and we are sad to leave our Twilight retail and tour shop behind. We would love for the store to continue on and we hope to find new owners who will love Twilight and St Helens as much as we do.

ABOUT Experience Twilight

From Blog, to Book, to Shop.

We are crazy Twilight Fans who are lucky enough to live where Twilight was filmed! St Helens, OR is the hometown of the Swan House and eight additional Twilight film locations. It’s just a short drive from the Cullen House, the High School, Carver Cafe and all the rest.

Our name promises an experience and we intend to deliver. Come to St Helens where you can walk in the footsteps of the stars and crew! Many people don’t know that a large portion of Twilight was filmed in little old St Helens, Oregon– just 30 minutes West of Portland, OR. There were nine sets and a lot of background filmed here. The main street in Old Town, where our shop is located, was transformed to become the streets of Port Angeles. The front of our store actually appears in one our favorite scenes. You’ve read the books and seen the movies. Come, Experience Twilight!

Experience Twilight has a Twilight Fan Store that provides an experience all it’s own. We’re glad to help with directions, visitor info or even your special event. We like to take fans pictures for our fan wall. We’ll chat with you endlessly about Twilight, if you’re in the mood. We have guided walking tours. Best of all, our store is filled with Twilight items from Forks, La Push and around the world. We have t-shirts, decals, jewelry, sparkling vampire venom, rain from Forks, sand from La Push, home decor, suckers, official merchandise, authentic replicas from the movie, exclusive autographed items and more!

Our main day to day operations is the retail store and walking tours.
We also do:
Weddings, Parties, Getaways
Custom Tours
Weekend Events
Movie Release events
Twilight Fan Club

There are at least five other forms of revenue available that we just haven’t had time to work with. The potential is HUGE!

And don’t forget, Breaking Dawn II is coming Nov 2012!

You’ll see Twilight movie sets around the Portland area, have lunch at a Twilight set, an exclusive private tour, a stop for shopping where the stars shopped and more. You might want to polish up on your Twilight trivia for the car ride and be sure to pack a camera!
