All My Favorite Things




I stumbled upon a great little vintage store as I was heading toward one of my favorite clothing stores (Gazelle Nature Fibre Clothing, in case you are interested). The store I discovered had a parking space right in front and I don't think that was an accident. The store? all my favorite things (a vintage store full of bits & baubles, furniture, & life) I introduced myself to the gentleman running the store, who was very friendly and welcoming. He told me his name and we even shook hands, but I was so intrigued by all the goodies in the shop, that I failed to remember his name! He told me his wife was the one in charge of the store, but he was quite the ambassador himself. His wife, Melanie Corson, maintains a blog about the store and I really encourage you to check it out. There isn't much I can say about the store because the name of the store says it all: all of my favorite things. Walk with me . . . .














And this is want I want for my birthday (hint, hint):


Oh, the store is located at 4419 N.E. Fremont in Portland. There are lots of great little shops in this section of Portland, by the way, so allow plenty of time to gunkhole.
