Robin from Birds Of Oregon stopped in yesterday with some more of her lovely lockets. These have been flying out the door. So cute and girly, yet very sentimental and classic at the same time. Robin mentions “A locket says ‘I have someone close to my heart” .. A locket says, “my diamond is a person, not a rock”. A locket says ‘remember that time we went to the beach? well I do and I will forever”. Fashion or function or just because, these nail it all around the board. Made from all of Robins original illustrations all on vintage one of a kind lockets. Come in and check them out!!
I’ve been behind on my blog, and want to apologize. I’M SO SORRY that you haven’t been able to know what’s going on, what’s new, what artists are doing amazing things, and the big one I’m sorry about… There is NO PHOTO’S. Slacker RIGHT HERE. There. Now I can put my tail between my legs and write again. Get you up to date. Whew I feel better already, You?
Now let’s start… Little Things is OPEN!!
Little Things is a boutique in NW Portland right between the Pearl district and Nobb Hill. Here we specialize in locally made jewelry and accessories. We have a little bit of everything.
The store Little Things is this crazy idea I came up with while traveling, doing business classes at PSU, and where it really struck me was when I found an amazing crafty group of amaaaazing ladies. Why not, why continue to pay to learn how to make fake business dreams when I can do my own. I held my breath and jumped right in. Literally.
I rented at GARAGE at the Lovejoy ActivSpace, and transformed it to a little boutique. I wanted the space to be the opposite of what it was, and now I think it is. It’s cozy and cute.
Filling the space has been my absolute favorite thing. Finding local artist has been quite easy and every single one has inspired me. The whole idea behind the store was to show off Portland’s amazing jewelry and accessories designers. From funky to sleek, from a simple fun impulse buy to a “I must save to buy this item buuut it’s worth it”. Little Things has it all, and what’s great about it is that you are supporting not only a local business, but local artists all in one stop shop
So stop in check it out. If YOU are an jewelry and accessories artist or know of one that MUST be in the shop send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org Please include your name, pictures of your work or a link to it, and a little about yourself.
Talk to you all soon…. really. <3
