I've mentioned here before that I love coincidences. Way too much. So you can imagine how excited I was to find out that Stephanie, the friendly owner of Noun on SE Belmont (the most recent Portland shop to carry sulu-design earrings as of yesterday!), is originally from Ohio, too. My dad will be especially pleased to hear that she grew up in Geneva and worked at Eddie's Grill, a favorite spot of his. Noun is my kind of shop, full of lots of vintage furniture and knick knacks, great glass pieces, and a nicely edited selection of handmade goods. Oh, yeah, the Saint Cupcake counter in the back ain't so shabby, either.
And in other sulu-related news, I've decided to start a mailing list for my etsy customers who are interested in getting a heads up about my shop updates. Thanks to Maritza for the great idea (by the way, have you seen the amazing softies in her shop recently?). I had been mentioning shop updates here on my blog, and will probably continue to do so, but I neglected to mention one that I did earlier this week (several earrings are still available from it here) and think that a mailing list might work a bit better. If you're interested, send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with "shop update mailing list" in the subject line, and I'll add your name to the list. Thanks. Now, bring on the weekend.
