What an amazing day the people of Portland gifted us yesterday.
Folks came out in droves and supported loads of local businesses by playing Little Boxes.
We are so extremely grateful for this!
The good news is, if you didn't make it out yesterday, 
you can still partake in all the Little Boxes fun today!  Thank you for all your support!

A Perfect Storm of Savings is Brewing!

Can you feel it?  
A perfect storm of SAVINGS is brewing for you, our awesome customers!  

10-4--Alberta St Store (In the classroom)
10-6--Sellwood Store (Outside if it's dry, inside if it rains)
We have purged through our inventory and are slashing prices on loads of merchandise.

We will also have gently used classroom supplies and some AMAZING bulk jewelry findings that we are liquidating--exclusively at our Alberta St Store.

Come help us clean house for 2014.  

Now in its 3rd year, Little Boxes is growing into a wonderful city-wide event.  Trying to promote the goodness of shopping locally at "little boxes"  instead of BIG Box stores on Black Friday and Saturday--get it???  
Over 180 local, independent, businesses are participating this year.  

Check their website for loads of info:
Check their facebook page for a great video--Our shop dog, Winnie makes an appearance at about 1:26 in it  :)

Last but not least, Supportland is dishing out TRIPLE points to all its members who shop the Supportland network of local, independent, and small businesses on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday.
