You may know the Cosmic Chameleon from their quirky and eclectic selection of wares, or the unique array of local artisanal pieces they carry. And if you have ever crossed the threshold into their wacky and wonderful retail realm, you may or may not have left with a tie dye frock, softly used Hello Kitty pumps, a few indispensable feather boas, and a locally crafted set of earrings, but you’ll undoubtedly have appreciated the staff and owners for their kind and sincere character.
Sadly, the Cosmic Chameleon will be closing their doors on Oct. 1, and as they prepare to forge a new path, they want to say thank you to the Corvallis community, who cherished and supported the business throughout the years.
Since 2009, the owners, Nikki and Joyelle, have been providing the community with a constantly changing selection of consignment goods.
“We would like to take the time to thank our community and honor them for supporting us for almost five years,” said Nikki.
So, in a manner of saying goodbye and thank you at the same time, the Cosmic Chameleon will be hosting several sales throughout the remainder of their time. Beginning Sept. 2 through Sept. 15 all items will be 50% off, and from Sept. 16 through Sept. 30 everything drops to 75% off. So come get the last of the Chameleon gems, get an early start on those Halloween costumes, and bid farewell to an iconic Corvallis business.
Remember also that in-store credit and unused gift certificates must be used before Oct. 1, as well as any remaining artisan consignment items, which must be collected before the doors close.
