The 1st Anniversary of opening Frankie & Coco PDX is fast approaching! Sarah & I are so grateful for the amazing journey we have had thus far and excited for what the future will bring. Our Etsy shop is flourishing, celebrating 500 sales this month. We launched two shops with Shoppe by Scoutmob earlier this year. Frankie & Coco Kitchenette, which features our small batch artisan infused finishing salts and Frankie & Coco PDX, which highlights our beautiful, yet practical bags. In addition to planning our 1st Anniversary soirée & trunk show (more info soon), we are busy preparing for the Crafty Wonderland Super Colossal Spring Sale. This is our first time participating in this event and we can't wait! If you live in or near Portland, mark your calendars and come see us!
The sun has been shining in Portland and we are inspired to start sporting some cheerful colors! Here are the new clutches that just hit our etsy shop! Great patterns, organic canvas, lush colors...
Eggplant purple & ivory organic canvas clutch with citron denim accents.
Smoky gray & ivory organic canvas with stone denim accents. Lovely folded or not.
Ahh, color pop! Indigo & white abstract canvas with turquoise brushed denim accents.
It’s been a wonderful few weeks into the new year here at Frankie & Coco PDX of making, designing, card playing, studio organizing, tennis watching (and playing), retail opportunity on the new horizon, karaoke, visiting with friends and meeting new ones. There were even a few PDX Etsy celebrity sightings.
We were excited that Frankie & Coco’s fuchsia wool with black canvas foldover clutch was in Ann Cosgrove of acbc Design's bold + beautiful treasury featured on the front page of Etsy! A great collection making us dream of a bright spring ahead.
Last week we had a fun night visiting with other PDX Etsy-ers, many of which we have been crushing on for a very long time. It was a blast to meet the makers of Prunella Soap, Reverse Chronology, Portland Apron Company, The Cozy Project, Huzz Art Shop, Pom Love, Kyra Botanica, Ready Maker Design and Etsy guru Melissa Santos.
February is already shaping up to be a busy month. We are looking forward to a little down time this weekend to say goodbye to January and welcome in a new month.
We have some really lovely new bags in the shop, perfect gifts for the impending holidays or just for yourself. Made by hand in our studio, these one-of-a-kind wool & canvas foldover clutch purses are the perfect complement for your fall to winter wardrobe. They are 6" x 10" folded and 8" x 10" opened flat, large enough to carry all the essentials. Currently in a rich dark brown wool with rust canvas accents, a gorgeous plum wool with wheat washed denim accents, and a vibrant fuchsia wool with black canvas accents. All three have a heavy duty YKK antique brass closure and leather pull. Use coupon code NOV13CLUTCH for 15% off any clutch purse in our etsy shop until 11/30/13!
