shop feature: tender loving empire.

On my “I fell in love with Portland because of this” list is local handmade shop and record label Tender Loving Empire.

The first time I visited TLE was in Fall 2011, before I kick-started my Feed the Fish co line. I must have been super inspired by all the handmade awesome in shop!

On my second visit to Portland, I made sure to stop in again. The shop was just as exciting as the first visit. I even modeled for them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

For this most recent visit, I made a TLE a flag! #fangirlallday

And, I was so excited to see my crafty friend’s plush cuteness in store. You can spot Tally Sue’sย raindrops, Oregons, clouds, Voodoo doughnuts, and sunny side up eggs all over the shop.

I hope I get to visit again sooner rather than later. I’m also itching to visit their 2nd, 3rd, and 4th locations throughout the city.ย Any must-see stops on your Portland wishlist? Share below!
