portland sunshine in full color

Posted by on

The gray skies parted and the sun was glowing brightly overhead as I made my way to Portland, OR  last weekend for my trunk show.  I spent the first day visiting Presents of Mind, Pie Footwear, and Tilde – to give them their first look at my new Matinee and Foxtrot hobos in colorful tweed.   There must have been something about that Portland sunshine, because each store purchased a mix of purses in my brightest color combinations.

Portland has some pretty great grub!

In between stops, we managed to try a sampling of several of Portland’s culinary delights.  My favorite meal was Saturday morning breakfast at Screen Door, which was totally worth the wait. Then I walked across the street to Moxie to set up my display of purses onto hooks and dress forms.

I spent the afternoon greeting customers, sipping on mimosas,  and chatting with Dee and Sally – the hostesses with the mostest(es).   After the show, Dee purchased several of my one of a kind Troubadour Tote bags and Bohemia hobos – so if you missed out on my trunk show – you can still get one for yourself at Moxie.
