Shop Visit: Seven Sisters


Taking over Nationale’s former space at 811 E. Burnside, Seven Sisters is a delightful addition to the popular and established shopping complex. Having formerly sold at the beloved Portland Flea, owner Jillian Punska-Harn has used her background working for art museums, including PAM, to put together a truly lovely space. Seven Sisters features both new and vintage clothing with an emphasis on natural fibers and domestic production (the West Coast in particular), housewares and accessories. There’s even a flower stand out front courtesy of Ladybird + Paloma Floral whose flowers are mostly grown in Oregon. (Side note: I took home a sweet bouquet and it lasted far longer than anything I’ve ever bought at a super market and is still brightening up my space as I type — more than a full week later.)



I visited Seven Sisters on their second day of business and was immediately won over by the friendly and inviting vibe. First, I went straight for the vintage clothing and found so many must-haves that I was almost afraid of single-handedly depleting their stock, but, luckily, there were a few things not in my size. Nestled in with the vintage, I found a handful of carefully selected new pieces from brands like San Francisco-based Way Way who offers easy, modern and versatile pieces in luxe fabrics such as silk and linen. Per Jillian, there are more new brands on the way from some exciting designers. Currently, mum’s the word on just who, but I can say they are some good ones that, as far as I know, are not available anywhere else locally.



The shop also features handmade pieces from in-house jeweler Nicolette Peterson’s line, Beach Bones Jewelry, who use silver, brass and semi-precious stones to create designs that are both edgy and bohemian. Alongside Beach Bones, you’ll also find modern brass hair ties from Caravan Pacific, clog boots from Sven’s Clogs, vintage eyeglass frames, leather bags, L’Aromatica natural perfumes and skincare and room sprays from Wolf’s Apothecary.

Not content to just dress you, Seven Sisters also offers a mix of new and vintage housewares including no fuss linens and beautiful mango wood utensils from Fog Linen Work, pillows made with gorgeous African indigo dyed textiles from England’s Ethical Life Store, and a variety of acacia wood cutting boards. You’ll find vintage Chemex coffee makers, ceramics from local line Covet + Ginger, stationary from Evermore Paper Co. and My Dear Fellow. There are even treats from local chocolate-maker Alma Chocolate.



There’s definitely something for everyone and with more and more items coming in all the time, including candles, unique holiday decor, and calendars set to hit the floor soon, Seven Sisters will be my go-to for holiday shopping this year. As their motto states, ‘Share Something Beautiful’.

Seven Sisters is located at 811 E. Burnside. The shop is open Tuesday through Friday from 12PM–6PM. Saturday and Sunday hours are 11AM–5PM. You can also shop Seven Sisters online (more products coming soon!) and follow Seven Sisters on Facebook and @sevensisterspdx on Instagram.

Katy Skelton

I’m so in love with everything from Katy Skelton. The Brooklyn-based designer has blown my mind thrice in the past few months and I was rendered nearly apoplectic upon seeing her Admiral’s Tray — the stunning marble and brass fancy cousin to her dreamy lucite and brass Captain’s Tray. Katy does an amazing job designing pieces that fill a utilitarian void in your space in the most beautiful way. Case in point, the One Drink Table (I love the grey!) which comes in so handy in small spaces. Plus, she makes a round and a triangle “Zelda” table — I’m a sucker for lovely things with the same name as my pup! More HERE.

There are so many things at Woonwinkel that I have my eye on — it’s getting ridiculous. Here is a collection of my current faves below and now that I’ve put it together, I realize that there is a distinct blush pink, white and brass thing going on. They carry so many timeless, lovely, versatile designs — it’s hard to narrow down my shopping list. I have one of the large strappy leather baskets and it’s beautiful — I use it for magazines, but I think it would be sweet for linens or firewood too. I’d love to bring a few more dreamy things home to decorate our new house. So good! If you’re in Portland — make sure to check out Erica and Kristin’s wonderful downtown PDX shop! Woonwinkel is at 935 SW Washington St. More HERE.
