Life Is Complicated – Take This Detour

Detour to Johns Landing

johnslandingLife is complicated. Road work makes it worse.

We know you want those big sale discounts at Johns Landing this weekend. Of course the traffic gods have decided to make that more complicated. The Sellwood Bridge is closed both Saturday and Sunday. Add to that the further complication of the closed ramp from the Ross Island Bridge to Macadam Avenue and you may feel stranded. Relax. We’re here to help!

Here’s our workaround detour from the Eastside.

Take the Ross Island Bridge; at the west end, go straight and ramp onto Barbur Boulevard.

Follow Barbur to the first traffic signal at Hamilton and turn left. (By the Swan Market)

Go one block down to the 4-way stop, and turn right onto Corbett.

Follow Corbett downhill about 3/4 mile to SW Carolina Street.

Turn left onto Carolina.

Go 3 blocks and get ready to SHOP!

Thank you for the effort, we truly appreciate your business!

Chris is a self-confessed resale fashionista. A fashion recycler from an early age, she learned the consignment business from her mother, Jan Gauger, at omt divine resale in Lincoln, Nebraska. Chris moved to Portland, Oregon in 1990 and immediately felt at home, among her people. She started Here We Go Again Deluxe Resale Boutique in 1992 and has never looked back. The second location of her store opened in 1997. Chris loves pretty much everything about clothes and fashion, but she has a serious boot and shoe addiction that is fed by the two stores. It's doubtful she will ever be recovered. In addition to clothes, Chris loves mentoring young women and teaching them about what it takes to run and manage a small business. She has employed some pretty remarkable women over the years and is grateful for all they've done to help grow Here We Go Again. She is a Hoosier by birth, but was raised in Nebraska. She has two sisters who continue to run the consignment store there, and one brother who has sense enough to stay out of the way. Her husband of twenty-seven years, is a land use planner and the fix-anything-guru that Chris relies upon more often than she'd like.
