About The Spinsterz

I LOVE my life!


Yeah, that pretty much sums up how I feel about life. I LOVE what I do. I feel so incredibly grateful to get to do my job each and every day. I wake up enthusiastic and excited to go to work and help bring health, joy, self confidence and happiness to the world through the use of hula hoops and flow toys.

I started The Spinsterz back in 2005 in a basement in Portland, Oregon on 39th and Lincoln. To be honest, when I started the business, I had no idea what I was doing. I was just following my passion for fire arts and really wanted to make some good fire poi.

Fast forward 15 years and I've got a world recognized brand and served hundreds of thousands of happy hoopers over the years. I don't have some giant conglomerate company or anything like that, we are still just a small business with a couple people building and shipping hoops. 

How I live is reflected in my business and the things that are important to me flow over into how my business is run. 


I'm pretty much a tree loving dirt worshiper. I eat primarily organic, I compost, recycle, drink spring water, shop at farmers markets, meditate daily, and try to live a life that has a small footprint. I ride my bike, put my vegetables in cloth bags at the store, I shop with handmade baskets made local crafters, I shop local and do what I can to support my local community. 




Flow arts and Circus is our PASSION!

We are fire dancers, builders, festival goers and lovers of fun and dance. We build props, teach workshops in Hooping, Poi, Fire Fans, Acro Yoga & Stilting, and we put on some pretty great fire shows too!

We have been in business for 13 years and that's not surprising given all the positive feedback we get from our customers. Take a look at our Testimonials!

We love to play with toys and teach you how to do so. In the process of using these "skill toys" you stop thinking about what you have to do today or your grocery list, and instead you become present in the moment. You will be fascinated by how healthy and liberating it feels to live in the moment, to be free of thought, to just allow yourself to BE.
