Book Arrivals!

Lots of new books have been arriving at the shop! The weather here in Portland is just beginning to turn… there’s the perfect chill in the air at night… It’s the best time to curl up with an inspiring book! Come pull up a chair with us (and Rizzo!) while you pick out your favorite.




Some Favorite Things…

Things have been a little quiet around the blog lately while we’ve been busy little bees at the shop! We’ve been working on the online store (we’re getting close so stay tuned)! We’ve also been unpacking tons of amazing new treasures! Earlier this summer Keiran took a trip to Iowa and brought back some fantastic vintage pieces for the shop… it’s just beginning to hit the floor so come on down and get it while it’s hot! Keiran was also recently in New York at a trade show and picked out the most perfect new lines for Porch Light. Some of those new goodies are starting to arrive  and we’ve been putting out loads of new jewelry, perfume, candles, books and cozy wool scarves. Come see what’s new!

Here are some of the items I am currently coveting.  -Jess

Tonic Perfume: Just $28 a bottle! The scents are wonderfully unisex. We have a range of scents but my favorites are Tobacco 1812 and Smoky Fig.

Himalayan Mercury Glass Soy Candle: We have many different scents like campfire, spice and tobacco bark. $30 each. (They also come in a rustic spice tin pot for $24 each).

Vintage White Pot: I’m a sucker for the sweet hand painted details. $24.

Roost Tourmaline Ring: What’s not to love about this dainty beauty? Gold vermeil and pink tourmaline, $78.

Joli Earrings: Joli has long been a staple jewelry line at Porch Light and loads of new pieces just hit the floor. The new collection features lots more natural, semi-precious gem stones. This sparkly little pair is made with garnets, labradorite and fresh water pearls, $64.

Vintage Beakers: These actually just sold! They have such a great shape and would make excellent bud vases.

Vintage “Loveliness” Tin: It doesn’t get much sweeter, $46.

Monarch Tin: It has a lions face on it, need I say more? $18.

Small Blue Tin: This one has butterflies on the top! $20.

Pollen Arts Key Candle: Handmade Beeswax, $20.

Pollen Arts Chanteud Candle: Handmade Beeswax, $28.

Round Ink Bottle Candle: Handmade Beeswax, $12.

Best Of: Rizzo!






If you’ve been in to visit us here at Porch Light or our neighbors at Eden then you will no doubt recognize this beautiful beast! It’s our shared shop kitty, Rizzo! We all adore her and you can see why from these photos. If she’s not lounging on one of the beautiful sofas or the fancy bed at Eden then she’s busy hamming it up over here. Some customers have joked that she “runs the place” because she clearly goes wherever she pleases! These are just a few of her favorite spots (and ours).
