Thinking of “Pin Me”

17 01 2012

Sending Sally and Liz lots of love.  It is such an inspiration that this wonderful boutique on North Mississippi is turning seven.  But, life is full of surprises and changes.  It is always hard to say goodbye to something that you built and cherished.  Pin me is saying au revoir to their brick and mortar store this month.  Please be kind and gentle to the two lovely women and dear friends for these last few weeks.  I hope that people will be thoughtful, compassionate and supportive.  Wishing Liz and Sally a new exciting chapter and a fabulous adventure.

Please visit Pin Me at 3705 N Mississippi Portland, OR 97227 or ring the shop + 1 503 281 1572.

We love you Sally+Liz.





So Long

7 01 2012

Today is it.  We pretty much moved out.  The walls have been retouched, canceled all of our utilities, cleaned the space, and saying goodbye to our little shop.  We also said farewell to our loveliest postman and to the wonderful family who made us yummy burritos and tamales.   Happy to report that yesterday was filled with much ease.  The movers were very sweet and helpful. They were able to move the heaviest counter on to the 2nd level for the new studio.  Thank you to Evangelina and Miles for taking the whole week off from work to support the little IDOM until the end.  Thank you to Katie, Susan, and Brad for showing up every night to help us out.  My dearest friends could tell you.  I’m horrible at asking for help.  You will just have to force the help on me.  Thank you guys for surprising me with your endless hours of packing, cleaning, taking down everything and bringing us delicious food.  Without you I would be so lost.  I’m so touched by your love and your friendships.  So long everyone.  Thank you for everything.

Goodbye our delightful little shop.

Wishing everyone a brilliant weekend.  Ta, ta.





Dreams

6 01 2012

Yesterday was a surreal kind of day…  Starting with E walking into the shop with 30 gallons of water flooding down our walls from the ceiling.  Mind you they were very hot water.  If E wasn’t there at that moment.  We would have lost everything that we just packed.  Luckily M got to the shop in time to run upstairs and found the source of this curious event.  A plumber was draining water heater to an assume working drain.  Only it was in our shop instead of the drain.  E+M fought the battle and got everything sorted out and cleaned up.  I arrived with mobs in hands and expected the worst.  The plumber kept saying how surprised he was with E+M for trying to fix the problem so quickly.  Most people would have just watched the whole thing and waited for someone else to help them. I found this quote from D.H. Lawrence on dreamers.  I think it is appropriate to say that we at IDOM are day dreamers who managed to make our dreams come true.

As we are packing and leaving the space.  We find comfort that we jumped and realised our dreams.  Much of the obstacles , the challenges, and the heartache made us evolved as better people.  Thank you E+M for being on this adventure with little IDOM.  Thank you to Katie, Susan, and Brad for being our rocks for this last week of transition.  Many thanks to our friends and family for the lovely messages and for the support you had given us for the last four and a half years.  Ta, ta for now.





Being Brave

5 01 2012

It was a hard day yesterday.  Evangelina, Miles and I decided to shut down the shop one day early.  We just couldn’t hang on any longer.  Too painful to try to answer all the questions over and over again of why we are leaving.  The papers are up on the windows and door and boxes are being packed.  All we have now is each other.  Trying to be brave together.  I’m so grateful for my community of friends.  Katie and Brad are coming over tonight after work to help us with more packing.  I’m switching my car with Lance this morning so we could start moving.  As Nietzsche said, “that which does not kill us makes us stronger.”  And thank goodness for the friends that I love!  Okay off to being brave.

You have been so good to us little shop.  We will miss you.





Bye Bye Furniture

14 12 2011

I’m hoping that I could find a loving home for our IDOM furniture babies.  Many of the pieces are either custom made or antique pieces which we refurbished.  The prices are non negotiable.  They are sentimental to B and I and if we can’t sale them.  We will keep them in our little garage.  Okay deep breaths…  Here they are…

I adore the shape of the wood.  The coffee table is made from found oak piece via Sauvie Island.  We had it custom made for the shop for $1,200.  We are hoping for $600.  Length 94″, width 29″, and Height 17.5″

B and I found the antique Japanese screen doors and thought they would be perfect for dressing rooms.  We attached the 2 screens together for one wall.  They have been sanded down and repainted by us.  We are hoping for $90 per screen.  The screen length is 70″, width for one screen is 36.5″.  They are attached for the moment, the width for 2 screens is 73″.

Metal glass box for jewelry $80.

Sweet antique Chinese stool $162.

More pics tomorrow of IDOM treasures.  Please stop by and say hello soon.





Another Life

30 11 2011

I’m truly sorry for any inconvenience today.  I’m on another assignment from my prior life.  The shop is shut today (Wednesday the 30th) due to the lack of me cloning myself.  I wish I could be in 2 places at the same time.  I’ll be at the shop tomorrow at regular hours.  Thanks very much for your understanding.

Off to an interesting adventure.

See you tomorrow.  Ta, ta everyone.
