The original PDX Collective Sale started when a band of shops with a surfeit of post-holiday merchandise decided to team up with a big sale event to sell it all off at rock bottom prices and make room for spring. Years later, they're still at it, and if you want to take advantage of a whole slew of bargains from a mess of great stores all at once (Abrahams & Duffy, Betsy & Iya, FOLLY, Isaac Hers, Lizard Lounge, Mabel & Zora, Parts + Labour, Physical Element, Radish Underground, Tumbleweed, Zella Shoes), this is the best one-stop in town. Sure they hold a sale in preparation of fall/winter arrivals too, but in this climate, now is the time to stock up, since you'll be wearing those cold-weather layers for months and months and MONTHS to come (sorry but you know it's true).

So, mark your calendars and apportion your money accordingly: The PDX Collective Sale has announced it will take over the Ace Hotel Cleaners on February 11 and 12. As always, come early for the best selection, and keep it clean.
