Attic Journals began on a sleepy Saturday morning in 2004 when we happened upon a beautiful tattered book at a garage sale. With an immediate need for having an original gift at a friend’s birthday celebration that evening, we headed home to re-purpose the book and Attic Journals were born.

In the years since that first Saturday, Attic Journals has evolved into a burgeoning business that works hard to be as sustainable as possible from our home in Portland, Oregon. By working with schools and libraries around the country to harvest their discarded books and upcycle them, the benefit of Attic Journals is three-fold: funding community education, keeping significant tonnage out of landfills, and helping people around the world tell their story.

Our work is an affordable unique gift, perfect for the hard to gift people in all of our lives.
