One of the Best on 23rd

Mao and I stopped by Idom last Thursday as part of NW 23rd’s Shop n’ Hop event. We were greeted by owner/designer Modi Soondarotok and over flowing glasses of wine. We sipped and shopped, while I hinted to Mao the numerous items I would love to have should a particular husband feel inclined for a certain spouse’s upcoming birthday. We settled on some economic choices of a Ipod carrier and business card holder from feltbags.

I cannot say enough good things about Modi and her designs. She seamlessly combines a classic aesthetic with a modern sensibility, all while encouraging fair trade and supporting Thai seamstresses. The folks over at Portland Monthly love her as well and wrote a great blurb in September’s issue.

Once I land some fabulous contract as a consulting historian and am rolling in historic research and an actual salary, the first thing I plan on doing is marching the block and a half to Idom and purchasing her Maura dress. In the meantime, I will continue to stare and sigh contentedly at my crocheted necklace.
