check it out!

as posted today by Portland Picks.. "Make It A Memoir
We can’t get enough of handmade items. There’s something about a blouse that’s hand-sewn that makes us feel original, smart, sexy, and funky all at once. And when we can find hand-knit scarves and sweaters, and original items like handmade jewelry and stationery, we’re practically in heaven! Lucky for us, we found Memoir, open just five months! The entire shop is stocked with handmade items, most of them made by women. You’ll find clothing and accessories and home items. Standouts include silk-screened journals, albums and note cards by Jen Corace, tops and skirts by Makool (hoodies with fun appliqués, like a blazer adorned with an ice-cream bar), coasters and handbags by Robot Candy (quirky designs like lotus flowers and Asian chickens), and bags by Queen Bee.Ooh, and check out designers unique to Portland like Austin Craft Mafia, Amet and Sasha, and Blackbird Fashion (the world’s cutest skirts with appliqués of a horse, a poppy, even a hot and girlie skull-and-crossbones).We are also big fans of the Memoir line of knitted scarves by owner Brooke Krawetz. They’re nubby and romantic, and Brooke promised that she’ll be doing sweaters and skirts for fall!Memoir3731 N. Mississippi Ave.Portland, OR 97227503.528.1000"
