Patti Smith West: A Little Gem on 42nd

I discovered a little shop on NE 42nd in Portland last Friday when Howard and I were just driving around my old childhood neighborhood. I had passed this shop once before and made a mental note that I needed to stop one day. My memory was jogged as we were driving by and I yelled to Howard: Pull over. I'm so glad we did.

The owner, Patti Smith, has had the shop for about a year and a half. She is a little red-headed spitfire. We were yakking so much, I had trouble concentrating on taking photographs much less shopping. But I managed to do both, skilled multitasker that I am. Here's a quick little whirlwind tour of her shop (vintage clothing is in the back - I didn't even get a shot back there!). You can find Patti's Facebook page by going to
