The Happiest Place on NE 42nd Ave.

Patti Smith and I first met a few years ago when she came to one of my garage sales. I was clearing out some of my inventory and she was choosing the most interesting stuff. We started to chat and discovered we love the same junk and have the same birthday. We've been friends ever since. Patti opened up a shop of her own recently and I'd love to show you around...







Patti is planning a fantastic event next weekend. She will open her shop to showcase 4 Portland crafty/junky artists and their work. Here's the best part. She's calling it the "Knick Knack Patti Whack" event. How can you NOT love her? Portlanders...Don't miss it!

Friday, November 11 ~ 6:00 p.m
Patti Smith West
3746 NE 42nd Ave. (2 blocks north of Fremont St.)
Portland 97213

The drawer/ curio box is fantastic!
Just looking at the shop front makes me homesick.
