Twilight retail and tour shop FOR SALE

Our loss can be your gain. Our family has to move and we are sad to leave our Twilight retail and tour shop behind. We would love for the store to continue on and we hope to find new owners who will love Twilight and St Helens as much as we do.

ABOUT Experience Twilight

From Blog, to Book, to Shop.

We are crazy Twilight Fans who are lucky enough to live where Twilight was filmed! St Helens, OR is the hometown of the Swan House and eight additional Twilight film locations. It’s just a short drive from the Cullen House, the High School, Carver Cafe and all the rest.

Our name promises an experience and we intend to deliver. Come to St Helens where you can walk in the footsteps of the stars and crew! Many people don’t know that a large portion of Twilight was filmed in little old St Helens, Oregon– just 30 minutes West of Portland, OR. There were nine sets and a lot of background filmed here. The main street in Old Town, where our shop is located, was transformed to become the streets of Port Angeles. The front of our store actually appears in one our favorite scenes. You’ve read the books and seen the movies. Come, Experience Twilight!

Experience Twilight has a Twilight Fan Store that provides an experience all it’s own. We’re glad to help with directions, visitor info or even your special event. We like to take fans pictures for our fan wall. We’ll chat with you endlessly about Twilight, if you’re in the mood. We have guided walking tours. Best of all, our store is filled with Twilight items from Forks, La Push and around the world. We have t-shirts, decals, jewelry, sparkling vampire venom, rain from Forks, sand from La Push, home decor, suckers, official merchandise, authentic replicas from the movie, exclusive autographed items and more!

Our main day to day operations is the retail store and walking tours.
We also do:
Weddings, Parties, Getaways
Custom Tours
Weekend Events
Movie Release events
Twilight Fan Club

There are at least five other forms of revenue available that we just haven’t had time to work with. The potential is HUGE!

Breaking Dawn Premiere in St. Helens Oregon!

EXPERIENCE Twilight threw a Breaking Dawn premiere party at the Columbia theater in St. Helens Oregon!  You might remember the Columbia theater from Twilight when Edward speeds past it after saving Bella from the guys in the parking lot.  One of the girls who was lucky enough to go, wrote us a little report and sent along a few photos from the night.  I posted the photo above that I took last year.

Here is a quick report from Angelina who apparently won one of the fun Twilight inspired prizes!!  Vampire Venom!!

“Its 11:30 and The Columbia Theatre is already about a third full. In the front, the owner of the Experience Twilight store in town is asking trivia questions and giving little prizes for the questions when answered. About 15 minutes later, more people some more people start coming in and there is a huge line of people in the lobby waiting to get a midnight snack. When the lights turn off, the theatre is about three fourths full. Throughout the movie there was laughing, and a few jeers from someone in the front. Just as the ending was coming you could literally feel tension in the air coming from everyone. When the movie was over at 2:15, everyone was walking outside to their cars talking about the movie and laughing. From the excitement, it was easy telling it was a huge hit!”


Thanks Angelina!  It’s great that everyone at the Columbia theater seemed to love Breaking Dawn Part I!  We’d love to hear what you think!

 We’re doing it again for the release of the final Twilight Saga movie, Breaking Dawn Part II!!  Make plans early and join us in St. Helens, where Twilight was filmed to see the final Twilight movie!

Movie Party – Popcorn and Twilight on the Big Screen!

The Twilight stars and fans are known for their big hearts. So, naturally we’re kicking off this party with a small charitable event, treating some very special cancer patients and their families to a showing of Twilight on the big screen and popcorn with us.

Dinner Where the Actors Ate

Just the 20 of us will then head over to the Klondike for delicious Twilight themed dinner. This was a film location for interviews and where several of the cast and crew ate.

Slumber Party

After dinner we’ll head out to Edgefield, the 74 acre resort, for a night of chit chat, snacks and wine in our pjs. Some may want to wander off to play pool, ski ball and sample the local ales. Alice would approve.


Sit back and relax. We’ll do the driving. You’ll see Twilight movie sets around the Portland area, have lunch at a Twilight set, an exclusive private tour, a stop for shopping where the stars shopped and more. You might want to polish up on your Twilight trivia for the car ride and be sure to pack a camera!

Bella’s Birthday Party

We’ll return to the resort to celebrate Bella’s birthday with dinner, cake and a gift exchange. For those who aren’t ready to call it a day there are several pubs, a winery, a spa, wading pool and movie theater available on the grounds.

Brunch w/ Local Cast

You’ll have a chance to chat with locals who were on the set of Twilight as we dine on a beautiful brunch spread. Local cast have the best stories!
