The Lippman Co. celebrates over 60 years of helping Portland party! We are a third-generation, single-location, family-owned party supply business with a commitment to finding the best stuff out there—and bringing it to you, our customer.
It all started in 1948, when Nathan (Ginger) Lippman and his wife Anne opened their warehouse in downtown Portland. Their store began as a wholesale supplier of helium, balloons, and redemption prizes for Punchboards--an extremely popular tavern game of the time.
The first Lippman Co. balloon catalog went to print in 1996, expanding our family of customers and establishing our reputation as the best source for balloons and helium in the Pacific Northwest.
In 2003, the Lippman Co. moved into its present home at 50 SE Yamhill Street. Our wonderful 12,000 sq. foot sales space features an open floor plan, natural light, and a devoted balloon sales room. In 2006, we were named the “Best Single Location Party Store in the U.S.A.” at the National Party Retailer Awards.
In addition to the party supply business, the Lippman Co. is one of the largest helium and balloon distributors in the northwest, delivering products to commercial customers in Oregon and SW Washington.
To this day, we remain true in our commitment to finding the best party stuff out there, and helping people party in creative and imaginative ways. The Lippman Co. is where you can still find the old-time goodies like chattering teeth, honeycomb tissue balls, and rubber chickens: We’re also your #1 source for cutting-edge party decorations, balloon designs, and rental props. We strive to earn your customer loyalty by being your top-notch one-stop party resource...
Here’s to the next 60 years, Portland!
