Shop Visit: Palace

honey-kennedy-palace-pdx-shop-visit-02

Entering the new Palace space on East Burnside for the first time the word that immediately came to mind was, appropriately enough, ‘palatial’. You’d never guess that owner Charlotte Wenzel just moved into the new space in late October because the interior feels so perfectly put together with beautiful art on the walls, fantastic displays throughout, and a veritable jungle of plants livening things up. Palace covers just about all the shopping needs you could have — new and vintage clothing, shoes, accessories, housewares, books, stationery, notebooks, magazines, records, skincare, cosmetics, pantry items and much more.

I gravitated towards the clothing first and was quite impressed with the vintage offerings of seasonally appropriate wool, leather, and corduroy coats, dreamy sweaters, and beautiful silk kimonos — I can just imagine how elegant it would feel to sip my morning tea with one of those embroidered, brightly-colored beauties on! Mixed in with the vintage, I found a great selection of both modern and bohemian items from Ace & Jig, Edith A. Miller, Prairie Underground, Colorant, Hansel from Basel and THVM denim. Also on hand, Palace has Aigle rubber boots for both men and women in all the sizes to keep your feet dry in style.

Once you’ve outfitted yourself, it’s time to show some love to your home. With a wide variety of objets d’art, baskets, ceramics, throws and linens on hand, you’ll have no trouble finding that missing piece for yourself and perfect gifts for friends and family. My favorites were the Sunbeam beeswax candles, Kontex towels from Japan, and the cheeky ‘boob’ pillow cases from Gravel & Gold. Foodies will be impressed with Palace’s collection of Royal Rose syrups, honey from Le Parfait and Heavenly, preserves from Smiley, Mumm’s sprouting seeds, a large selection of cookbooks, and even a small selection of wine.

There’s so much more in store as you encounter the large display of skincare offerings from natural brands like Red Flower, Fat & The Moon, Kate’s Magik, Weleda, Acure, Aster & Bay, Skin Owl and many, many more. Any skincare need you may have will definitely meet it’s match here. Alima Pure cosmetics, OLO fragrances and Butter London nail polishes are lovely when getting dolled up.

Palace also carries a wonderful selection of ceramic, beaded, and woven jewelry alongside pieces from local makers Tiro Tiro and Hazel Cox. I can’t help envisioning retiring back home after a party or long day at work, removing your beautiful jewels and placing them in a sweet ceramic dish, slipping on a kimono, brewing up a cup of T Project tea, and putting on a Françoise Hardy record… just heavenly. All available at Palace!

Palace is located in Portland at 2205 East Burnside Street and is open daily from 11AM to 7PM. You can also follow @palacestore on Instagram.

honey-kennedy-champagne-love-02
CHAMPAGNE LOVELINESS: 1. dorset champagne coupe 2. blush waterford crystal coupes 3. rosy-cheeked coupes 4. cameo champagne glass 5. domaine de canton ginger liqueur 6. waterford champagne coupes 7. waterford crystal lismore coupes 8. hartland champagne coupe 9. camille champagne coupes 10. st. germain elderflower liqueur 11. le creuset champagne sealer 12. dorset champagne flutes 13. crystal champagne flute 14. hand-sculpted champagne bucket 15. copper champagne bucket 16. lavender bitters

With New Year’s Eve approaching, my mind naturally dives straight into a big glass of champagne. A coupe, actually. That’s my preferred vessel for drinking champagne. I fully believe that in the coupe’s saucer-shape the tiny bubbles are more free to tickle your nose and, of course, that helps put stars in your eyes.

Since I’ve been setting up our dining room in the new house, I’ve been thinking that it would be fun to cull a collection of lovely glassware over the years. We have a couple pretty blown glass flutes from our wedding and some cheap glass coupes, but I’ve been daydreaming about getting a fancy crystal champagne coupe or two once all our money stops having to go towards plumbing. The idea of growing a little collection to use for special occasions makes me happy. I’ve put some of my glassware picks together above!

And Champagne it is — that is my favorite sparkling wine with Crémant being a close second. Other sparkling wines can be great too, but I always think these taste best. Add a splash of St. Germain (elderflower liqueur) or Canton (ginger liqueur) and I am over the moon. Drop some beautiful lavender bitters onto a sugar cube and plunk it into a coupe or a flute for some festive and delicious aromatherapy.

Because I love Champagne so much, I believe in the truth in labeling movement — working to properly label wine, cheese and more. Example: Champagne only comes from Champagne — the NE province in France. Prosecco is not Champagne — it’s sparkling wine, but not Champagne. I recommend reading more about it — it’s important and inspiring.

P.S. Make sure to check out my picks for New Year’s Eve party dresses.
