DAEDALUS BOOKS (2074 N.W. Flanders St., 503-274-7742 or e-mail عنوان البريد الإلكتروني هذا محمي من روبوتات السبام. يجب عليك تفعيل الجافاسكربت لرؤيته.) is a bookstore-in-the-front, warehouse-in-the-back operation that’s been in this spot for six years.

Jeremy Breedlove ("No, I’m no relation to that other Breedlove that’s been in the news") launched the bookstore in 1997 after he was laid off from a graphic artist job. "But I’ve been around books my whole life," he says, which explains why the ambience is Avid Reader Perfect. Daedalus specializes in fiction, religion, poetry, philosophy and the classics, but we’re coming back to peruse the ARCHITECTURE, PHOTOGRAPHY and RENAISSANCE STUDIES shelves. Ninety percent of the stock is used—and the prices look good, too.

 

BARRACUDA AND BEADED FLOWERS: WHO KNEW?

You’ll feel as if you’re in a big city’s neighborhood market when you walk the aisles of CITY MARKET NW (735 N.W. 21st Ave., 503-221-3007), a not-so-large purveyor of meats, fish ($8.99 a pound for Idaho Golden trout), super-fresh produce, pasta, wine—and a whole lot more.

Floral designer Quinn Kyle uses the flowers in front of the City Market NW to make arrangements for weddings, events and "everyday happiness" as FLOWERS AT CITY MARKET (503-752-6633). She also sells the handiwork of Cassie Koslen (503-224-9164 or e-mail her at عنوان البريد الإلكتروني هذا محمي من روبوتات السبام. يجب عليك تفعيل الجافاسكربت لرؤيته.), who made her first beaded rose when she was 11 or 12. "I like how they both emulate and repudiate reality," says Koslen, a Portland writer who’s created large hat pins and hairpins, little bouquets, earrings and brooches. "I’ve never made a tiara, but I wouldn’t mind trying!"

 

FROCK YOURSELF!

"Do you want to see the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen in your life?" asks Alicia Justus (pictured), a former-nanny-turned-artist whom you’re likely to have the pleasure of meeting if you drop into KEEP ’EM FLYING (510 N.W. 21st Ave., 503-221-0601), a vintage clothier that draws clients from near and far, including Hollywood film people looking for period attire.

Justus, who’s dressed as if she just stepped out of a scene in "Paper Moon," holds up a sophisticated 1920s evening gown ($600) with amazing beadwork, and the women in the shop do a group swoon. "If I’d lived back then and I’d been a wealthy person, I would’ve worn something like this dress every day!" she says.

Cannibals Gallery owner Pamela Summerfield owns this shop, too. It specializes in high-end clothing from 1860 to 1980. "For the longest time, I thought that was a bellhop cap, but I learned it’s a Masonic hat," says Justus, pointing to a fezlike red velvet hat ($49) atop a case filled with vintage jewelry. Stacks of hat boxes add to the shop’s ambience.

And then she pulls out a 100-year-old black velvet coat embellished with black needlework that fits as if it were made for you. "It’s $450, but it’s museum-quality," she says. "Did Pamela tell you she does layaway?"
