Reduce. Reuse. Resale.

Meet Allyson Medeles, clothing designer and owner of Pacific Holiday, a women’s consignment shop that features boutique brands and good-quality women’s clothes in all sizes. It didn’t take a political debate by Seattle governor Jay Inslee to make Allyson, a life-long consignment shopper, aware of the environmental impact fashion was having on our planet. Climate change, sustainability, and reducing waste are part of the Pacific Holiday business model. That makes for some guilt free shopping.

Right now Allyson has a call out for cashmere sweaters and fall booties - so check your closet. Drop in with 15 items or less to consign; more than that and you’ll need to book an appointment. Check out the website for more info and a list of preferred brands. You’ll also have a chance to check out Allyson's clothing line, Hermosa, which consists of organic, Portland-made styles that are comfortable, colorful and easy to wear. Yes!




Dave Pietka, owner of Foot Traffic, has untied his laces and passed his running shoes to long-time store manager Sean Rivers. Sean, operating manager for the past 14 years has acquired all five Foot Traffic stores and multiple races. But Dave, 68, promises to stay in the neighborhood. I still own the building, I still bank at Beneficial and I still eat Papa Murphy’s Pizza.” And he still owns the Mountain Shop at 2975 NE Sandy Blvd. He is currently helping his brother-in-law start Hollywood Mini Golf at 37th and Sandy.” Then he plans to reinvent himself -- one more time!

Name Game

Did you know that Amalfi's was called The Pizza House when it first opened in 1959? It was one of the first restaurants to bring pizza to Portland. It wasn’t until the mid 60s that they changed the name. This family-owned institution has been serving the neighborhood for 60 years! Happy Anniversary to owner Kiauna Floyd, and the Amalfi's family. Stop in and check out some retro signage that pays homage to their roots.

Leaving on a High Note

Our friends at Beneficial State Bank are rocking the title of B Corp “Best for the World” Honoree for their positive impact on the environment, workforce, local communites and suppliers, customers and corporate governance. That’s a mouthful. Too bad Beneficial is closing the Beaumont branch. But don’t panic, they are merely combining forces with their Rose City location at 5636 NE Sandy Blvd. Join them the week of September 23 when the move is complete, for Grand Central pastries and Extracto coffee. Mike would love to see you.

It's Juice What I Want

Vegan waffles, cashew butter, cold pressed juices, granola bowls — usually phrases that scare away a carnivore. Destiny Sternod and Happy Day Juice Co. are new to Beaumont and are showcasing that these is not only not scary, but delicious! Offering healthy breakfast options as well as delicious juice combinations, smoothies and a variety of granola bowls, Happy Day Juice has something everyone will love. Watching how they craft their food and juices, you can see how much they care about what they’re serving, and how much they care about their customers. Stop by and give Happy Day a try or just grab a cold pressed juice to go. You and your healthier body will thank me. - Jef Atwood, Umpqua Bank
