Don't forget! Tomorrow is First Friday @ Milepost 5!! Come enjoy the festivities as artists throughout the complex open up their studios and let strangers in. Everyone is welcome and the retail shops (including mine, JUST THE GOOD STUFF), will often have sales and workshops, while the artists throughout the complex dull out treats and love to talk about their work. E.A.T. will most likely have a band playing on their stage and will, ofcourse, be serving their out-of-this-world food. See you there?
Milepost 5 is really easy to get to. Just take I-205 to the Glisan exit and go west. Turn right on NE 82nd Ave.. Go one block and turn left on Oregon St.. Find a place to park.

So, at my store's Grand Opening the Mayor, Sam Adams, came in and said, "This is the best smelling store in Portland!". Well, he is right about that one!
The Grand Opening of JUST THE GOOD STUFF @ Milepost 5 (NE 82nd, just N. of Glisan) was a lot of fun. Many wonderful people came in, browsed, oohed and aahhed & bought organic fragrance for their home & body. If you have the chance to stop by, I also have a collection of upcycled home & garden art (tiki torches, hummingbird feeders, garden art), handmade chocolates, hand painted glassware, fused glass, jewelry, pottery faces made by my son, greeting cards and whimsies. I hope to see you there!

I am jazzed! Now you can buy my highly sought after candles at my little boutique in Milepost 5. Located just N. of Glisan on NE 82nd Ave., and across from the community center park, Milepost 5 is a live/work community with a fab restaurant E.A.T. (eat, art, theater), a gallery, free community activities and concerts, and various shops. My shop, JUST THE GOOD STUFF, located next to the restrooms in the hallway by the restaurant, will be loaded with my candles, melts, and body products, as well as upcycled items for the home and garden and necessary treats (caramel corn and chocolates for starters). Official opening will be March 18th, with the Grand Opening Ceremony April 8th. The complex grand opening extends throughout the weekend with free activities, music, a ribbon cutting ceremony by the mayor, and much more. I will be giving out FREE samples of sweet w/ heat caramel corn and lip balm. Hope to see you there!

Well, I've changed up my labels 6 times this year and this time I think I finally got it right! I am very happy with these. They are elegant, recyled, down to earth, slightly whimsical, branded and are just paper that is wrapped around and taped so the buyer can take it off and have a plain candle if they would like. I am also making tags for my coffee candles and other funky sizes.
I will still keep my recycled white labels for any hard-core fans but otherwise, I really like the recycled brown.
Speaking of new......Handmade Local Market opened this weekend! If you haven't had a chance to check it out, please do! For the month of February you can buy one of my healing shea,soy and essential oil massage candles for only $5! This Saturday, ALL CUSTOMERS GET FREE LIPBALM while supplies last. One per customer.
Plus, I have a shelf of OOPS! candles with the wrong wicks, discontinued fragrances, discontinued jars, etc. that are only $5!
Hope to see you there!
