It's the official change of season. Summer is here!!!! We sure hope that this will actually mean the long awaited presence of the sun will be felt here in the Pacific NW. Today we are getting a late day glimpse of what's to come so I'm inspired to share a... Continue reading

A few of you may have noticed that the blog has not been working quite right this week. Oh technology.....rather stick to vintage. Thanks to twitter I noticed this post, on Miss Tori Spellings Blog. Some of you may know that she is a lover of vintage goodies. I think... Continue reading

Yes. Deliciousness. I don't think spell check is going to love that one. This pink & silver cuff is perfect for a mother or even a gal going to the prom! A bit more hip and a lot more "forever" than your typical corsage! They are made from vintage jewelry "orphans" and our local designer makes them POP! (I got one yesterday and I LOVE it!) I cannot stop checking on and looking at this wonderful set of pitcher and glasses. Margaritas, iced tea, sangria...heck...ICE WATER would look sexy in this set! Maybe a jewelry box and a shy girl...

Whether you are a host or a guest, we're Royal Ready for you. As in.....super Royal Ready. One of our vendors lived in London and loves all things London. Paris and Lovely. I was a recent London visitor and was completely drawn in. Immediately. And the nay sayers? Well...they probably haven't taken a trip across the pond. Today we sold hats, tea cups, silver trays, crown topped stir sticks, glasses with crown design. I love that! There was a royal buzz in our little shop! We all compared notes, trivia, Princess Di stories and we all agreed that we learned... Continue reading

Find and Flourish. What a great use of re-purposed vintage jewelry! Jennifer Ogren has been a successful graphic designer with her own paper design company. That is actually how I met her years ago. Now, she has taken her artful eye and started this jewelry line. We LOVE it and we're so happy to Welcome her at Found on Fremont. Continue reading

Snow on the ground yesterday (light...but SNOW all the same) and blinding sun, mild evening today. Welcome to the Portland Weather Roller Coaster. One thing stays the same.....we get cool stuff at the shop day in and day out. Dedicated vendors making their spaces fresh and OH-SO-SHOPPABLE. I am loving the new look/new vendors upstairs! We are lucky girls.... Continue reading

But inside Found on Fremont, things are heating up! That is because the vendors are on FIRE. I simply e-mail them and say "We need side tables, weird French stuff for a local French restaurant & fake, mini Christmas trees" and BOOM...it all arrives! They are THAT good. Look how good they've been this week. And so we bring in the Holidays and wish that your Holiday is stress free & fun filled. Cheers from Found on Fremont! Continue reading

Beth and I both agree that the "Holidays" have tip toed behind us and screeched "Boo!". How did we get to the Sunday before Thanksgiving & the shopping season? Big plans. A window decorating contest on our street. Moving in FOUR new vendors in ONE week. Wednesday afternoon we'll have all the vendors in to get their booths all sparkly & new. So...Friday should be quite exciting! Bring it on Black Friday! Lots of good things happening at Found. Continue reading

Tonight is 2nd Friday on Fremont! We're lining up the bubbly for you and keeping the lights on late. Tonight is a great night to stock up on extra silverware (we have a full house of hotel silver & vintage serving pieces), platters, serving dishes, cordial glasses, crystal & vases to make sure your Thanksgiving table is complete. And a couple of vendors brought in a smattering of Christmas items and they SOLD! So, we are listening to the shopper and we made the appropriate calls. Vendors were asked to bring in a few things for the next few weeks.... Continue reading

Vendors have brought in costumes, hats, sunglasses and funky jewelry. We can cover your needs whether you want to be a 60's Go-Go dancer or Jackie O. And of course you want to dress up the INSIDE of your home! Spooky typewriters.....perfect to write Ghost Stories on! Crystals, ephemera, ribbons....oh my. Set that table like a good little goblin! Here are Minnie, Cora, Maude & Ethel talking smack about Sheryl, Florence & Susannah. Crows can be that way. So much fun inside Found on Fremont! Continue reading

Today our shop door... was a revolving door. In and out. In and out. In and out. Five vendors (and one Sadie the Sheepdog) restocked their spaces. Some were there for 10 minutes....one was there 3 hours. We have some dedicated folks! The vendors are just excited as we are about the upcoming Birthday weekend and they filled their booths with new things to make YOU happy! All of us at Found on Fremont are so excited for this Saturday. Corks will be popping....cupcakes will be piled high for our One Year Anniversary...and if we bore you for some reason..head...

One year ago this whole venture began and we never looked back. Okay. We didn't have time to look back because there was SO much to do! We love where we are, how we've grown, what we sell and WHO we sell. Our vendors are the best! Look at us now! Thank you all--shoppers, vendors, neighbors-- for your trust, patience and most importantly for supporting a local small business! Cheers to another fantastic 365 days! Clink! Continue reading

Well..apparently we're far better at updating on Facebook than we are at updating our blog. So, if you'd like to keep better up to date on our incoming goods, come check us out HERE. It might just be me, but I think we're kind of worth checking out once in a while! Why? Because this month was FILLED with people who were sorry they didn't buy it when they saw "it" the first time. This month was a magic month! Check it out: We are having a good time on Fremont. Fremont Fest was a hit, 2nd Friday is a... Continue reading

We LOVE this job. We do. The economy might suck a little bit. Or even a lot. And the evening news is more than depressing...but when we unlock the door to the store everyday...everything feels GOOD. July we will welcome our new vendor Dusty. Dusty sews & collects. I have found a few aprons in her space and some darling little ceramic people who MIGHT need to come play at my house. And we have two new vendors moving in August 1st. "Juxtapose" will be joining us. She previously owned my FAVORITE store named House Dressing. I used to walk... Continue reading

I feel like we blogged about 3 weeks ago...but mid-May? THAT was REALLY the last post? We apologize! We've been busy watching the store take on a whole life of it's own. So many fun changes & surprises. And as the economy does a switch-a-roo...we try to go with the flow. One thing that never changes are the dedicated vendors. Just today a gal said "I was here 2 weeks ago for your last event and it didn't look like this....I am so impressed". I did a little pictorial run through today to catch you all up-to-date because after today... Continue reading

I feel like we have written this post before. It's yet another month of revolving doors, switching spaces, downsizing, worrying about the waiting list then swiftly depleting the waiting list. Every day the shop evolves a bit more...taking what we think are pretty good directions. I feel like we cover all the bases. I am headed up to the shop today and I am sure there be yet another surprise vendor that has popped up. That's they way it goes! Continue reading

Today a bunch of gals from Found on Fremont loaded up and headed out to Barn House in Battleground, WA to learn how it is done...to get some tips...to fill our game play book. We came home with our brains (and the trunks of our cars) FULL! We definitely felt like Queens for the Day thanks to the Barn House Boys. You really need to put The Boys on YOUR list of 2010 barn sales! Now...Beth & I are just racking our brains....trying to figure out how to get ourselves a barn. A grange hall would do as well.

It really is madness I tell you. How could we know ALL of the amazing vendors in the world? Really? We have busy weekends and we tell the vendors "You did really well this weekend" and they never miss a beat. They go home, fill boxes, bring in new stuff, make it sexy and walk away. We love that! If it weren't for dedicated vendors, we'd really have nothing at all. Some are folks who just love the thrill of the hunt. A few are people with other stores that just like hitting two markets for fair rent. Some collect,... Continue reading

We have not had this happen before, but oh-so-SADLY.....we had this dress stolen OFF the mannequin. We are SICK about it. Just sick. We have looked over the video and we missed who did it...they were smooth. My stomach sinks as I post this...but should you see this lovely dress (with *diamond swoops* in the back) out and about....feel free to contact us. The vendor who had this stolen from her space is SUCH a star with amazing class. She was so kind about it. Her main concern was that mannequin be re-dressed. BLESS her heart! With a broken heart,...

Tomorrow we all meet at 5:00pm....vendors, incoming vendors..partners of partners.. to move things around and freshen it all up. With just a fewwwwww warm "doors open days"...in comes the dust and the bunnies soon follow. First...the new guy. Our newest vendor to move in this week specializes in Indian & Pakistan rugs and home decor, as well as other general home decor. He has an AMAZING birdcage that should come home with me, but I will refrain. I will save it for YOU! Coming this weekend is a group of gals who make French silver cuffs and various other jewelry...

We love running a business...oh yes we do. Even when we are "off"...we're "on". We text each other with ideas, sightings, plans...OH ...the plans. We have had a month of events, new vendors, moving people around and garden furniture. That's really it in a nutshell. The fact that it is garden season is NOT lost upon the vendors. Amazing cement loveliness has been pouring in, as well as wicker chairs and tables, plant stands & locally created metal garden stakes! This last weekend, the shop gals went on a beach adventure! We felt the need to ESCAPE and research!We went... Continue reading
