“To achieve the impossible, it is precisely the unthinkable that must be thought.” ~ Tom Robbins
Our owner, Nyla, just returned from her excursion to Spain and Morrocco and what a wonderful adventure she had. You can scope her photos and future business prospects on TORRAIN Recycled Bags’ Instagram feed.
Meanwhile we are headed full force into the holiday season! The wonderful, hard-working folks at Blackstar Bags are currently stitching our new US made line and we just received a very LARGE and colorful shipment from Cambodia with our new fall prints. Have you checked them out yet?! They are sure to bring some brightness into the darker nights ahead.
With the holiday season, also comes an array of gift shows. If you find yourself in the Portland area, we recommend checking out some of the events below. They will showcase great local talent (including ourselves) and are bound to fulfill all your gifting needs.
Holiday Food and Gift Festival Portland, OR November 7-9
ADX Gift Show Portland, OR December 13
Check ‘Em Off Green Holiday Gift Show Vancouver, WA December 13
Trunk Show at CARGO – November 21-22
We are also opening up our studio for public store hours starting November 18th! We will be open every Tuesday and Thursday from Noon-6pm. We can hardly contain our excitement. Please come in and check us out! Our studio is right next to GEM Gluten Free Bakery so you can pop in and grab a yummy gluten free snack to fuel your shopping extravaganza. We are happy to offer 15% off your entire purchase if you stop in our opening day (November 18th).
We must say that this has been a big month for TORRAIN in the media and we are so grateful for all the new exposure. Nyla was featured in the Portland Tribune Sustainable Life section. So exciting! Check the story out here:
We are also featured in this month’s issue of Portland Monthly. Nyla was also interviewed on Wonderlust Adventures blog: http://www.wonderlustadventures.com/2014/11/04/we-adore-torrain/
If you are new to the newsletter chain, please follow us on social media! We are new to Pinterest (TORRAINRecycledBags) and have started a collection of some really fun things – our recipe board features some of our favorite healthy (and sometimes not so healthy, ahem, dessert) eats along with dream travel destinations and home decorating ideas. We hope to give you a little feel of what we are about here at TORRAIN :)
