Wow Portland, what a weekend it was! After months of hard work and some crazy long days we are more than happy to bring to you the biggest project we have been a part of since opening the original Blackbird in Ballard more than 6 years ago. The way we have been loved and embraced by all of you so far is humbling to say the least. Our blood, sweat and tears are in every thing we do and to be able to branch out of Seattle and share it with you is why we get up in the morning. We want to thank all of our wonderful friends in Portland who have lent us a hammer, let us crash at their house, fed us, honked at us as they drove by or "liked" one of our photos on Facebook, you are all a part of this.
The store features a carefully picked selection of what you have come to know Blackbird to be. Robert Geller, Blackbird Private Label, Odyn Vovk, Julius, A.P.C, Lad Musician, Yuketan and OBEY are joined by scents from Ulrich Lang and Dyptique along with grooming products from Malin & Goetz. Just like our Ballard store, the Portland location will constantly be updated and added to,showcasing all price points but maintaining our darker point of view.
Stay tuned for information on our official opening party in the coming weeks. In the mean time come see our creation and say hi. Our own Leo Gebhardt will be down in Portland for a little while greeting all of you and training our wonderful new staff before we steal him back to Seattle.
