A newcomer to Portland’s SE Division Street, Field Trip opened in July and has already settled in perfectly amongst their well-loved neighbors. True to its name, visiting Field Trip feels a bit like a fun and relaxing mini-getaway, one that just happens to be a rad shop. The expansive space features lovely wood floors, a dedicated area for weekly workshops, and even an outdoor patio. I was surprised to hear that Field Trip’s owner, Kara Green, had recently moved back to Portland from New York because this space has a perfectly relaxed vibe that brings to mind surf culture. It works and I found myself wanting to spend the rest of my day just hanging out with their awesome inventory.
Everywhere you look there is something that inspires major want. Clothing, accessories, apothecary and housewares are abundant and cohesively curated. Among the standouts are apparel from minimalist master Ilana Kohn, Moon Juice holistic supplement powders (like the romantic sounding Love Dust!), lots of cool wall hangings and custom-made Field Trip skateboard decks. You’ll also find lots of gorgeous ceramics, textiles, tableware, blankets, great magazines, modern minimal jewelry and natural skincare lines.
As mentioned, Field Trip hosts creative workshops on a weekly basis. Workshoppers can choose from regular Monday night Drink & Draw sessions, Tuesday Kids Crafts, and specialty classes like DIY beauty treatments and block printing. I made my visit on a Tuesday and can vouch for the kids crafting — I spied some major cuties having fun and working hard on their own wall hangings.
Field Trip is located in Portland at 3725 SE Division. Stop by Tuesday through Saturday from 11AM to 7PM and Sundays from 10AM to 5PM. You can also shop select items at Field Trip online. Follow @shopfieldtrip on Instagram to keep current on new arrivals, workshops and more.
I’ve had my eye on these concrete designs from Frauklarer, by Klara Schuster from Linz, Austria. I love that her home goods and jewelry all layer in a lovely way with modern minimal design sensibilities as well as settling in beautifully with a melange of vintage pieces from many eras. My favorites are the Geometric Minimalist Vase and Candleholder, the Black Mini Concrete Diamonds, the Geometric Marbled Vase, the Hexahedron Modern Cube Pot, Diamond Paperweight and Bracelet Holder and the Geometric Tea Candleholder. OK, I’m not going to lie — the Boston Terrier modeling the jewels really puts this line over the moon for me. I especially love the Dodecahedron Necklace and the Granite Nuggets Necklace. There’s a lot to love — these are classics. More in Frauklarer’s shop or Frauklarer on Etsy.

HAPPY FRIDAY! I’m excited for this weekend because I have plans to make some nice food to store — like quick refrigerator pickles and also a batch of pesto and pasta sauce to freeze. I might do a little baking too in the early hours this weekend before we are sweltering. I’m going to start the book my psychologist suggested I read and I look forward to getting out of my own way. I hope I find some new approaches — it’s been a difficult year. Oh, and I’m going to try to finally watch Poldark! Has anyone been watching? Have fun out there! xo Jen
