In honor of our Open House tomorrow evening, June 1, at the Ford Building, we thought it’d be nice to shine a little spotlight on some of our favorite neighbors: Foxfire Teas, Duchess Clothier, and Fieldwork flowers. My intern Lily & I did a little photo essay about Foxfire to show off some of the delectable goods they’ll be showing off at tomorrow night’s Open House. I’m a huge fan of Foxfire’s teas and have known owners Quinn & Katherine for many years now. Their delicious herbal infusions and loose leaf teas are constantly crave-inducing, so it’s lucky for me they’re right around the corner much of the time when a Foxfire yen comes ‘a callin’. The clothiers and tailors behind Duchess are some of the most skilled people I know, with Duchess having established a solid reputation as Portland’s go-to shop for mens suits. Many of the weddings I photograph also feature Duchess suits, and it’s no surprise: they’re the best in town! Finally, how could we compile a Ford favorites list without including the magnificently talented Megan at Fieldwork, which itself has blossomed (pun intended, obvs) into a Portland staple, providing flowers and other living floral sculptures for all manner of events and clientele. Thanks to Foxfire, Duchess and Fieldwork for being such great neighbors. Can’t wait to see you guys tomorrow night showing off your wares!!
