You know those jobs you've always dreamed of having but they sound silly? I've secretly always wanted to be a tour guide. Any vacation i've ever taken I always sign up for a local tour and always find it the best way to get to know any city you're in. This last weekend one of my dreams came true when I took 24 amazing ladies around Portland.
The day began with pastries and coffee from Posies Bakery while perusing Consign Couture. We boarded the bus and off to our first stop What's Upstairs on NW 23rd. Rachel, the owner, went above and beyond in getting swag bags together for the ladies full of amazing samples from stores on 23rd. 45 minutes of shopping later we were settled in for a catered lunch at The Society Hotel complete with Underwood Rosè, Avacado Toast, seasonal fruit and salad with a side of a beautiful roooftop view of downtown Portland and a history lesson from Jessie Burke one of the hotels partners.
Following lunch we shopped Consigning Women in the Pearl District, and finished the day at Button in Kenton. On the ride back to Consign Couture we played a round of "Show & Tell" showcasing our favorite finds of the day.
I think the best part of this first tour was the community of women who were full of joy all day. Mother's and daughter's, old friends and new friends were all made. There is nothing I enjoy more than connecting like minded positive women!
The next Portland Shopping Tour will be 5/27 more details to come as we get the shops on board!
