Hello! I decided to cut out early this week, so I’m posting these fun Portland listings a day earlier than usual. It’s not as mammoth as it has been lately, so you might even be able to do EVERYTHING on the list this week! Have fun and spread the word! xo


Tonight, Thursday August 15, come downtown to Animal Traffic for a fun Taylor Stitch Trunk Show 5–8PM! The SF-based label is now available at Tom’s downtown Portland location.
