local loves | alder & co

"Alder & Co. is a space of timeless and transportive things, as useful as they are beautiful. For us, having a store is about the discovery of the artist: traveling to different neighborhoods, different states, different countries."

First, I have to give a big thanks to my sister for introducing me to Alder & Co. It is quite possibly one of the dreamiest stores in Portland. From handmade local goods, to stunning ceramic pieces, to quirky stuffed animals for your nursery, each item has been selected with care.

It's one part beautiful goods, one part floral shop, all parts amazing.

Your can peruse all of the loveliness online, but here's a sample...

  1. Oh my goodness—too perfect!! This is my kind of shop! Such lovely pieces. I am also loving the storefront—the sign/logo is gorgeous! You can tell just by looking from the outside that there's amazing stuff inside. Have a great day! xo

  2. Looks ace, love the branding. Will check it out now. Lovely post.

  3. Thanks Matthew. I'm glad you like it!

  4. Hi Brooke! You're right, the outside is a pretty great representation of all the treasures inside. I think they just need to add a bakery/coffee shop and I would never leave this place :-)

  5. I've been singing "these are a few of my favorite things" on and off this whole past week. It's totally stuck in my head. That wallet is gorgeous!

  6. haha how fitting! That's a pretty cheery song to having playing in your mind... I usually end up humming the circus song (It makes me look like i've lost my marbles).
