We uploaded a new website last night, check it out! Other than the design overhaul, we have new information about the store and some of our products. It's going to be a bit easier to update now too, so it will be worth checking in on every so often. Look forward to an interactive neighborhood map in the lower east end section. Feel free to use the "send us mail" link to report any problems.

Snow day!

It's snowing where we are right now, and that's good enough for a snow day sale if you ask me. You know the drill: 20% off your whole purchase just for braving the elements. Today, and any day that it's snowing. See you in a bit!

Bringin' acid back

Ahhh the beauty of the acid wash. Madonna and Billy Idol did it in the 80's and now American Apparel and other retailers are doing their rendition.  Come down to the shop and get the original goods circa 1984.  We have an awesome ladies Levi's acid wash jean jacket with sherpa lining. Only one more pair of 80's black acid wash skinny jeans-size 28 and lots of mens acid wash jeans and jean jackets! Acid wash never looked this good.

Saved by the Bell

Today is Tiffany-Amber Thiessen's birthday. Better known for her striking debut in Saved by the Bell followed by a dynamo performance on Beverly Hills 90210. Thank you Tiffany for the big hair, high waisted jeans, and white keds. We are forever grateful.


I finally had the chance to meet the fabulous Betsy Cross yesterday of Betsy and Iya. I thought I was only going to pick up a few of her A-mazing jewelry pieces but ended up buying soooooo much! Everything was too beautiful too pass up. She is literally my new favorite jewelry designer-but don't take my word for it-come down to the store and check it out! She has these great Valentines day inspired earrings that will knock your socks off. And I guarantee it won't last long- I had a customer purchase a pair of earrings before I even displayed them in the case!!!! AAAAhhhh I'm smitten with Ms. Betsy...

Betsy and Iya

We are proud to announce that as of this week we will be carrying local jewelry designer Betsy and Iya's amazing and unique necklaces and earrings. Here is what PDX Magazine had to say about the talented little lady:

What betsy & iya Is
Unapologetically bold or slinky and sinuous, you’ll know it’s betsy & iya jewelry by the trademark earwires and clasps. The large, handformed, sterling silver loops add conspicuous bodaciousness to their functionality. Totemic talismans and semiprecious marvels make compelling focal points amid a menagerie of metals or within an asymmetrical system. Even the label’s name is a study in contrasts: Betsy Cross is the designer/owner; Iya is what Betsy called her sister before she could talk. While not directly involved with the business, “Iya”’s fashion sense guides Betsy in spirit.

Who Betsy Cross Is
The Roanoke, Virginia, native moved to Portland in 2006 with a Master’s degree in physical theatre and a fascination with ornamentation. By early 08, her jewelry business plans snowballed of their own accord. “I just couldn’t stop,” the 27-year-old says of the mounting purchases preceding her March ’08 launch. Betsy also loves sweating over a hot drill in her Northwest studio forging outsized trinkets. “They’re big, but cute, which is how I feel as a person. I’ve always been tall and kind of clunky, but I feel cute and sexy.”

Why We Like It
betsy & iya comes on strong without overpowering the wearer. The pieces inspire confidence but remain accessories. Customers often remark, “I wouldn’t have thought that would look right on me but when I try it on, it does.” Betsy will customize any piece for a buyer to accommodate taste, fit, or wording, and supports independent artists in her materials purchasing, including the locally-mined agates and fair-trade beetle wings. She strings pearls and casts metal: she can’t be stopped.

This 60's icon is one of our faves. So classic and timeless. Now at 59, she's still going strong.  In a recent interview with her about her sense of style she had this to say---

"Successful dressing is mostly about attitude, having the confidence in what you wear, knowing that it's working for your body."
