In this Explore Portland adventure me and @carlajuliett visited the Portland Pop-Up shops! The shops will be in Pioneer Place Mall until Dec. 24, 2017. The pop up houses local designers and artists in vacant storefronts in downtown Portland.
We shopped around @dfrntpigeon, an urban lifestyle brand ran by marginalized youth in Portland, creating not only great fashion, but also engendering change. Young designers craft T-shirts, art prints and accessories, as well as a range of locally made goods!
Also in the space is @animal.plant.mineral.pdx, they transform raw materials into meaningful gifts. And each item is handmade with ethically sourced materials.
Lastly we shopped around the Chic Coop! This local shop is modeled after a henhouse! Among the quirky chicken wire and nesting boxes design, you’ll find unique jewelry and other fashionable goodies.
Definitely pay the PDX Pop Ups a visit and support local businesses in the process❤️ follow @downtownpdx for more Portland goodness!
