Shop Visit: Red Sail

honey-kennedy-red-sail-pdx-shop-visit-01

Since opening their doors in 2011, charming and homey boutique Red Sail has been a wonderful addition to Portland’s Northeast Alberta Street. Owner Stacy Maiano stocks an excellent selection of housewares, gifts, accessories and paper goods, including a host of items produced by local makers. I love walking into Red Sail and seeing the rainbow of glossy ceramics, illustrated tea towels, candy-hued Baggu bags and art prints on display. I stopped by recently to find out which items Stacy suggests for the upcoming season transition and here’s what she recommended…

The modern geometric vessels from Portland-based makers Caravan Pacific are available in white and a cheery robin’s egg blue that’s exclusive to Red Sail. Use it as a vase for flowers, a planter once the weather turns cold, a pen catchall or use it to store kitchen utensils. Any use will add a happy pop to your space!

I also love the handcrafted, and appropriately named, Alberta Table Lamp from Caravan Pacific. The design is modern and sophisticated and I think the ceramic base and wood accents compliment each other beautifully. I can’t help but imagine it’s warm glow as the days grow shorter and the dreary winter months set in. Red Sail has the Alberta table lamp in black with red oak, white with walnut and turquoise with cherry wood. I’m eyeing the white version for myself.

At the top of my own wish list are the cotton herringbone throws made in Maine by Brahms Mount. They’re so soft and pretty, I want to use them for picnics now and for cuddling into once the cold nights arrive. Late season campers and beach walkers would do well to throw one over their shoulders for some truly indulgent comfort. Now I just need to decide which one to get — there’s so many colors.

The laser engraved leather triangle clutch from local makers Sons & Daughters are another of Stacy’s current favorites. Red Sail has both the cognac and dark brown versions in stock. I love this design which is a perfect hybrid of modern and bohemian styles and would make an excellent back to school gift.

Anna Joyce

I love the pretty new hand painted and printed collection from Anna Joyce. I especially like Anna’s bags and accessories, but she also makes some very sweet housewares. It’s fun to see her having so much fun coming up with new ways to create lovely textiles. My current faves are the soft cotton indigo chelsea stripe scarves, black ikat scarves, the indigo stripe tote with leather bottom and the broken lines tote. Plus, the photography and styling by my friends Lisa and Megan is stellar — just gorgeous as their work always is. More HERE.

Friday!

Happy Friday! We’ve come to the end of a short week. The week after the long Labor Day weekend always feels like a you’re in a slow-motion haze. I’ve been so busy that I’ve had a hard time decompressing at all, but I’m looking forward to sneaking in a little baking this weekend while we work on house stuff. I’m looking at tweaking this tomato tart recipe and thinking about making some blueberry and apple hand pies. I’ll post some instagram pics with my results… and some other fun things happening! Have a fun weekend, friends. xo Jen

HAPPY FRIDAY! I hope you have a fun weekend ahead with some much deserved lounging. It’s cuckoo to think that it will be September in 9 days — how did that happen?? I’ve been so busy this week with non-blog related wildness — hopefully I can share it soon. If you could keep fingers and toes crossed for me and send good luck vibes — I’d be ever so grateful. Make sure to take a little sloth-ing time for yourself, friends. Time goes so fast — sometimes it’s hard to remember to take it easy! xo Jen
