July Expo

This weekend was one of the most anticipated events in my calendar, the summer antique show at the Portland Expo Center, aka Expo. While Expo happens three times a year (the other two shows being in March and October – learn more about Expo by visiting their website) the summer show is often the best,…

Office Party

Recently Patrick’s work moved into a new office, and to celebrate they threw a house warming kind of party. It’s been really exciting watching Patrick and his co-workers grow as a company. They started out as a small start up, and are now part of a huge company that deals in mapping software, or this thing…

Buffalo Tour

It’s no secret that a good chunk of my wardrobe comes from Buffalo Exchange, the resale chain, as I spent a great deal of time there due to proximity. So when I heard about an upcoming anniversary sale with a focus on western and vintage, I kind of freaked out. Their twice yearly ‘zine upped…

Arrows & Antlers

When I met up with some of my friends to see Frozen earlier this month a few of us exchanged Christmas presents. Yes, you read right, Christmas presents.  A series of events between the three of us prevented us from seeing one another during December and January, but my presents were well worth the wait!…

July Expo Finds

What a weekend.  I can honestly say that I am beat! This last weekend brought the huge summer antique show at the Expo Center.  While the March and October Expos are great, the July one takes the cake.  An additional 400 dealers join the party, bringing the number up to 1,400 and I went all…

Western Adventure

One vintage thing I don’t really “do” are scarves.  We’ve just never much got along.  Sure, I’ll tie a classic nylon scarf around a ponytail, but that’s pretty much were it ends.  However recently I came across this fantastic wagon train themed scarf, and at $5.00, I couldn’t pass it up, despite not know what…
