Field Day Pop Up!

We've been a fan of Field Day apparel for a long time. One of Amelia's favorite dresses from Field Day was once black and has been so well loved and worn that its now a soft gray (but still going strong!) We're so pleased to welcome designer, founder, and powerhouse, Trinity, to the shop for a one day only pop up. She'll be bringing a selection of one of a kind sheet dresses and summery halter versions of the sheet dress as well as restocking our in-store favorites. 

Come say hello, get a chance to own an original one of a kind dress, and have some snacks with us! 

Wednesday June 28. //  3:00-6:00pm

Little Boxes is Back!

LBbanner2-550 copy.JPG

We're happy to be part of the best holiday shopping idea Portland (and anywhere?) has ever had. It's called Little Boxes (get it? 'cuz we're not big boxes), and it's an idea that started right here in Portland in 2011. 

Shop with us and TONS of local retailers on the Thursday and Friday after Thanksgiving and you could win an a Dream Vacation, a $600 shopping spree, an iPad Air, a stay at several local boutique hotels, spa and restaurant gift certificates, and tons more prizes. Those prizes are for real you guys!

It's 100% *free* to enter, and the more shops you visit, the more chances you'll have to win all these prizes. Plus, even if you don't win, we think shopping with us is a great way to spend time with friends and family and enjoy the richness and variety of our local shopping scene.

Full details and rules are available at the Little Boxes website, or stop by the shop to pick up a Passport with all the details you'll need to play along. If you've got an iPhone or Android phone, download the Little Boxes app to navigate and play along digitally.

So, pop in during Little Boxes to enter the raffle and take a look around; we’ll have mimosas, gift ideas, and smiling faces awaiting you! Mark your calendars now! Friday, November 25th & Saturday November 26th, 10am-6pm.
