hwga isn’t your average designer consignment store, and if you haven’t guessed, these style sleuths aren’t your average head honchos. They are your go-to resale sensei (setting the bar for your inner grasshopper), your style guru, your guide to keeping Portland green, and a caring ear when you need one. They answered a few questions to help you get to know them a little better. Meet the rest of the crew!
Chris: Resale Queen Extraordinaire
Pretty much anything salty and crunchy.
Favorite place to eat in Portland?
Oh, so many! I don’t think I can limit myself to one, but we go often to The Iron Horse around the corner from our house (fried oyster taco night!) and one of our long-time standards is Wild Abandon on SE Belmont, kitschy and comfortable, with good food and great bread pudding.
Favorite book or TV show?
Right now, I’m a total addict for Modern Family. I love to laugh! Book is harder, my selections are very eclectic, but I loved Team of Rivals, and I felt like I knew Abraham Lincoln after reading it. Very impressive book.
Twenty-four years is too long a time to pick just one. Most recently, I loved it when someone told me on Facebook that they loved my puns. It was validating – I write to amuse myself, but it’s always a plus if I can make someone else laugh too!
Kelly: Captain of the SS Carolina
Am-J: Broadway Commander-in-Chief
Super Irish Breakfast Tea is my life’s blood. I drink it in a brass knuckle mug for more power…
Trashy television ala True Blood, Teen wolf, and various other shows.
The Lamp! Their BLT is beyond compare, and their brunch is so tasty. Bonus, you don’t have to wait 9,000 hours for a table!
Books: The Stormlight Archives by Brandon Sanderson
TV Show: Firefly (ok let’s be real, anything Joss Whedon has done)
When ladies are in shopping and we all start singing along to what’s on the radio. A few weeks ago we had an epic 4 part harmony rendition of “Brown Eyed Girl” and it was beautiful.
