Peter-Tolin Baker, Jay Quiggle

JP GENERAL co-owners Jay Quiggle and Peter-Tolin Baker have channeled their lifelong interests and experience in retail, design and client services into a distinctive and trusted shopping experience.

They have previously lived in New York City, San Francisco and internationally, where they worked for a range of marquee brand clients such as Tiffany & Co, Vogue and Stella Artois. Their global travels inform a shared aesthetic and appreciation for goods from afar, and their life experiences have honed a strong eye for quality, beauty and good design.

A deep love of the Pacific Northwest brought the two back to the West Coast, and today they call "the Village in the heart of Portland" home. The house they renovated near Multnomah Village is a haven where "modern, functional, beautiful" is lived each day.

They enjoy being a part of the Village community, and are committed to bringing unique, high quality products to JP General, offered with the best customer service available.

Come in, say hi and discover something fabulous.
