The Button Emporium & Ribbonry
It is quite an experience to wake up in a town of about 2,000 and to go to sleep one of about 600,000...but that is the life experiences HH and I have chosen. You might wonder what these two entirely different places have that would capture my attention??? Fiber!!! I remember a few years ago visiting a wonderful shop that I think was called Quilter in the City...how I wish they were still opened because it would have been only 2 blocks away from us :( But HH discovered on the same block The Button Emporium & Ribbonry! The proprietress was wonderful, friendly and full of wonderful Grimm stories. If you aren't aware one of the most popular current TV shows Grimm is filmed in the Portland area and her shop provided the button's and embellishments for some of the costumes used in the filming! I hope you enjoy the short slide show and visit their website.
A Give Away reminder...if you want to be one of 2 winners of the Buttermilk Basin sponsored fun!
