OK, I’m headed with the fam to Portland, Oregon this weekend. And I want to hit the best spots. Where should I go? What are the can’t-miss hot spots? And no, I don’t want to know where to go for the best indie rock shows. Unfortunately, I haven’t been that girl since 1992. I’m looking for the can’t-miss boutiques for handmade, original mama-made-this gear for me and the toddler for fall. Cute sweaters, dolls, toys, bags. You know — great, quality goodies.
It seems whenever I’m deep into the blogosphere, I stumble across a crafty woman with an “about me” all about her and her store in Portland. Since I’m headed to the city for the first time, I don’t want to miss this unique group of crafters. Advice? — Beth J.
