For the past 8 years I have been a huge fan of the stylish and unique shop Parts + Labour in Hood River, Oregon. Before we moved this way, I would always make sure to stop by the shop during our monthly visits to the Gorge. Over 8 years ago, the shop was in a different, smaller space. Now, 2 moves later, owner Casey Nicol has found the right location .
Over the years, the store has carried some fun new local designers as well as quality brands that you love. One of my favorite Pacific Northwest brands that they carry is Prairie Underground. As a girl who loves being comfortable in her clothes, their hooded sweatshirt style jackets are THE best!
The great thing about Parts + Labour is that there really is something for everyone's style and budget. Between the brands of, Wildfox, Bailey 44, Michael Stars, Splendid, Free People, Paige Denim, Hudson Jeans, and Sanctuary. Not only does Parts + Labour carry a variety of clothing brands, you can find a wide selection of accessories, socks (such cozy cute styles), and bags as well. Some of the fun accessories and bag brands are, Tano, Betsy + Iya, Ambre Babzoe, and emily-jane.
For Spring, Casey is bringing in some new lines as well. Goddis Knitwear, a line that encompasses feminine style with a bohemian flair, will be one of those new lines. As well as a new line, The Odells, by Laura Stang of Porridge. Laura currently has many of her designs at Anthropologie, so I am extremely excited to see this new collection!
The new location is open for business. Come support your local shops this holiday season, and come say hi to Ruby (the adorable dog up top)! And if you cannot make it to Hood River, have some fun shopping online Parts + Labour. Grand opening party will be on December 5th, perfect time to do some shopping and see the new location, I know I'll be there!
