Roost in Spokane

I was downtown last week to check out the vegan bakery Boots on (approximately) Main & Division and was pleasantly surprised. While waiting in line for my vegan chocolate cupcakes for Valentine’s Day I felt like I’d been picked up and plunked down in Portlandia! I love Portlandia … it makes me miss Portland even more though. I turned to the woman behind me and said as much. Her reply? “You are in Portlandia.” She said she was a transplant here due to her husband’s job move.

And since I was right across the street, I popped over to Roost to check out their inventory. Pleasantly surprised was I, when I found a darling little, pink ceramic flower pot, a bird cage top, shabby black bucket, pink bud vase and a couple of nests. We’ll be using lots of nests etc. for Lola’s Girls birds in upcoming shows. Here’s a quick photo of my treasures. Oh and the candy dish on the left is one I bought there a couple weeks ago and filled with Pottery Barn’s artichokes.

Chaps

I just had lunch at Chaps on Highway 195 … met Celeste Shaw, the owner and ahhh curator of the place. The food there is always beyond the best and today I learned a bit about the owner. She’s addicted to “stuff.” I can relate. She used to be a critical care nurse. Instead of taking care of people, now she’s caring for vintage architectural and vintage “stuff.” I’m going to pitch someone a story about her.

Chaps

Shaw is very talented at the curating and repurposing aspects. She owns a store in Spokane called Pink; tagline is “vintage salvage goods.” I think I’ve been there … it’s located at 154 South Madison in Spokane.

 

 

Here’s the link to her site:

Psst…. she also has a big barn and plans to have a barn sale this spring. Stay tuned.

Celebrate Me Home

If you you love the song, you’ll probably love the store. It’s not just a song by Kenny Loggins but a home décor, furniture, haute couture furnishings store in Troutdale and they’re having their fall sale. Love the store. Note to self- must get out there next week!

Through Oct. 12 there’s up to 20% savings. I love how the sales are done there – up to $100 there’s 10% off; from $101 to $199 there’s 15% off and over $200 – 20% off! Here’s a sample of some of her lines (not necessarily that she has this specific furniture in the store of course).
