boys’ fort: a pop-up shop in portland

by Grace Bonney

Last Friday through Monday were such a blur with the Portland Bazaar that I didn’t have any time to drive around town and visit other shops. One in particular I’m bummed I missed was the awesome-looking “Boys’ Fort” pop-up shop. Created by the men of Kenton Collective, the shop was designed with a “manthropology” theme in mind, focusing on local and handmade goods like plants, vintage items and artwork. I love having great places to pick up unique gifts like this, so if you’re lucky enough to be in the Portland area, be sure to check this one out before it closes. Though it’s designed with men in mind, I see a few pieces I wouldn’t mind having myself. Click here for more info and directions. Thanks to Kelty Luber for the tip and gorgeous pictures. xo, grace
