I am a brand new store and the second my “Pick” ran I got 45 new Facebook likes and had a constant stream of new customers telling me that they saw me in Portland Picks. Thank you Portland Picks for finally being the ‘solution’ to my need to reach an audience that pays attention. — ~ Tamara Young, owner, Consign Couture

Neat Feet

Neat Feet

Mark our words—we will never wear those creepy “toe” shoes. But the idea is pretty rad, especially when we think of all the things we do barefoot, but would really rather not be barefoot for. (Hello, yoga.)

These “Dojo” indoor shoes from Sockwa are just what we need! We wear them for Pilates—they slip on, feel like nothing, and keep our feet clean while we get a good grip. Just pop ’em in the wash later. Cute and genius. No toes about it.

Fluff and Fold

Fluff and Fold

We’ve got a long list of boozy tricks to make any party rock the hizzy, but when it comes to décor, we often get stuck after “setting the table.”

Prost to the Host to the rescue! They create absolutely adorable tissue-paper poms in an array of gorgeous colors. Just fluff and hang to create a festive atmosphere for any occasion, then fold them up for easy storage/future use … but we might leave ours up permanently…

Don’t Leave Home Without Them

Don’t Leave Home Without Them

We are so grody’d out by brown, dirty-tinged bar soap in public restrooms that strangers have used before us.  Which is why we always carry F-1 Paper Soaps wherever we go.

Germies be gone! Paris, Barcelona, Rome, Puyallup…no matter where your destination takes you, take-along refreshing Paper Soaps to keep you clean. A single wafer-thin sheet will cleanse hands or delicate washables, leaving them lightly scented…without touching soap someone else has touched. Ewww.

Oh-So-Pretty

Oh-So-Pretty

Ever since we read the “Great Gatsby” in high school, we have wanted to throw a Gatsby-themed party for ourselves—all glitz, champagne and romance. And oh, the costume options!

After we stumbled upon these amazing head-bands by Ban.Dō, we decided this was going to be the year. Handmade with satin ribbons, vintage flowers, tulle and feathers, we are head-over-heels for these perfectly lovely adornments—so much so that we don’t even need a party to wear them—we’ll wear them every day with our jeans.

Now Hair This

Now Hair This

We don’t like ear buds, the ones that stick in our ear. We must have shallow ears or something because they just fall out. We love headphones but get headphone head (like hat head). Now we’ve found stylish headphones designed for the ladies that we never have to take off. They look like a fashionable headband – – a headpiece made of silk-satin and chiffon — that wraps around our head.

It sounds amazing, and looks even more amazing.

Protect Your Valuables

Protect Your Valuables

A girl’s gotta protect herself and her beloved handbag at all costs.  That’s why we pack…kinda. Thankfully Vlieger & Vandam has our back, or, um, our bag. Their bags combine fine craftsmanship and luxury materials, and are embossed with three-dimensional shapes in their leather.  Our favorite is the Guardian Angel bag.

Yep, we feel stylish and just a little safer.

Boot Tux

Boot Tux

We love boot season but we do have one complaint; the struggle to keep our skinny jeans carefully tucked into place (so annoying!)  Thankfully we’ve found a solution to this dreadful problem.

Boot Tux are comfortable, stylish clip-on stirrups that you attach to your pant cuffs. They work great with all pants and boot styles.  An extra bonus is that these clip-on stirrups are adorable so they even look cute when you have your shoes off.

Peachy Keen

The Fruit Company, a family owned operation in Hood River, has the freshest, juiciest peaches we’ve ever tasted. And guess what? They were delivered to our door, voila!  You can also join their Harvest Club..a monthly delivery of the season’s freshest array of fruit of your choosing. They have a variety of other fresh gift ideas from fruit and cheese, cider, decadent desserts and more.

This is made in Oregon at it’s freshest. How thoughtful is that?
