We're going to be open from 10am to 8pm today and honoring the above sale!

Also, FYI:

We just put out a lot of great new dresses and western shirts, and we also received a new allotment of pocketknife necklaces, including new designs and popular favorites.

Finally, if you're looking to buy gift certificates to rock n' rose, there are a few left at 50% off the face value over at MercPerks! These certificates are not valid in combination with special sale offers like the one we're holding right now, but they make great gifts, and it's an awesome way to give someone special twice what you spent on them!

Salad Days films in rock n rose

We just got done with filming a scene for an upcoming film called Salad Days in the store. For a couple of hours this afternoon, the store was transformed into a movie set, with about 20 cast and crew busy with lights, sound, wardrobe, make-up, and cameras. Everyone was really great, and it was a lot of fun to watch the shoot. Wardrobe loved our feather earrings from bird crap featherwear, and decided to use them for the shoot; where they were prominently featured in close-ups in the scene. We're really excited to see it all come together in the premiere!

Willamette Week's Best of Portland!

For the second time, rock n' rose has been honored in the Willamette Week's annual Best of Portland issue! We first won for "best place to shop" and "best kept secret" in what they called the "inseam district" in 2008. In 2009, the categories changed, and the closest award we could qualify for was "Best Place to Shop"... in the whole city. We didn't mind losing to Portland landmark Powell's Books; how could we compete with the world's largest independent book store? This year the Willamette Week changed the categories once again and asked readers what the "best little shop" in Portland was. That's a LOT of competition, and we were honored to receive a runner up designation in the 2010 edition that's on news stands right now. Congratulations Presents of Mind for winning this years readers choice award, as well as Naked Sheep Knit Shop, Local35, and Cupcake Jones who we shared the runners-up designation with.
