“The proprietress of Portland fashion powerhouse Mag-Big, Ridgeway is one of the foremost figures in Portland design ” – Mercury on Design

“Cassie Ridgway is only 23, a couple of months removed from earning a degree in poetry — not the most practical specialty when it comes to monetizing your work — at Portland State. Yet she’s come up with a model that could be as good as anything the professional big thinkers have found so far.” – The Oregonian

“Portland artists and crafters have a new brick and mortar space to show (and sell) their wares … a retail shop to highlight the truly awesome nature of the Portland art and craft community.” – Handmade Portland

“A precious store with handmade goods made by over 100 of Portland’s fabulous artists and crafters. There is the store space, but the other great thing about Mag-Big is that there is also a separate gallery space. This wonderful retail shop and gallery is all about supporting community, local artisans and locally made goods. What a great place to start your holiday shopping!” – TracyVille

“The level of artistry here is admirable… The range of items is too varied to mention them all and there’s plenty to discover.” – SE Examiner
