Alberta is gentrified Portland, inner NE Portland where in the past 10 years it has become a hip area to buy huge old victorian homes for cheap. Not much to offer in the way of MCM...unless you want a windchime mobile made of used forks or the like.

Welcome Scandimod. Posting pics of the cool houses in your area really helps too. I'm sure that the OR and WA residents would especially like it so we know where to go when we come up to visit.
