This weekend we went to Trends at E E Schenk. It’s their Diamond Jubilee – the wholesalers have been around for 60 years.
We had no idea they were here in Portland. Shows how good my research is. I should have found this out BEFORE we got here 2 years ago. Fortunately I happened to be checking out wholesale suppliers and bingo, there they were. And the staff are lovely and the store is filled with heady things. Even David enjoys wandering around looking at the shelves of fabric and notions. We buy our thread from them on a regular basis.
They always put on a good lunch – why would we miss it? And so far we have won a door prize each time.
And they have great speakers – this time it was Mary Fons of Fons and Porter. Pretty special.
Very glad they are there.
