We’ve helped people find fine and unique body jewelry since opening our first kiosk in Eugene’s Valley River Center during the summer of 2007. That experience launched us up I/5 to the Portland area and we opened our first Washington Square location in early 2008. Avanti, and our style of customer-first service was warmly welcomed and we’d found a great home base!
Owners Tyler & Janna Drake have helped to make body jewelry available in a clean, family friendly environment, and that service model led to the Avanti expanding into a custom built kiosk in 2010. That location was then expanded the following year with an even bigger footprint in Washington Square. The business continued to build inventory and variety while developing great relationships with a growing number of customers.
Our current showroom opened in June of 2013 and now our guests can stroll through 1,400 square feet of well-lit and great priced body jewelry. Being able to browse without a kid tagging along isn’t always possible. One of the best things about the move has been having the Washington Square play area immediately outside our door!
At Avanti Body Jewelry, we’re happy to have created a clean and welcoming place to come and browse, or get expert advice on what’s possible. Always helpful and smiling, our staff is trained to help customers leave with smiles of their own. They come back, too. We estimate that 80% of our customers are returning for more of the same great service. We hope you’ll come by to check us out in person, or visit our online store to see our great variety of body jewelry.
