Save the Knittn' Kitten!

The Knittn' Kitten is a unique sort of store, half craft store, half thrift store, all vintage wonderland. It's a great place if you're a seamstress, looking for one-of-a kind material or a knitter seeking some bargain yarns.

I don't know where the owners go to find the array of wonderful buttons and fabrics, but they've made it a lot of fun to go and browse.

On the walls are clothes lovingly sewn for several generations of the family (going back to the '20s).

I found some wonderful ribbons that I could use for embellishments, above (cheap!). They set me back all of $4.95. Check out those adorable pink flowers!

Want to help keep a wonderful business afloat? Here's how to find them:

7530 N.E. Glisan St.
Portland, OR. 97213

Open: 10-6, Tuesday through Saturday

Sister Diane suggests that even a $5 purchase would help them out!

Another way you can help? They accept donations of craft supplies, so if you're looking to destash, this would be a wonderful way to find your treasures a new home.
