Hustle over to Twist
—northwest Portland's Taj Mahal of fine art, ceramics, housewares and jewelry—for a preview of their annual sale, which doesn't officially start until tomorrow. All merchandise is at least 10 percent off, but there are sale tables and cases throughout the store featuring covet-worthy treasures for up to 50 percent off. If you can't make it to the store until tomorrow, sharpen up your sale nails and practice your bitch kick. It will be crowded, and it may turn ugly. Twist, 30 NW 23rd Pl., (503) 224-0334.
