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.
