40th Tour: Hawthorne

By Buffalo Exchange Portland (Hawthorne)

With temperatures reaching the high 80s, it felt more like a typical day in Tucson than in Portland. It was perfect weather to celebrate the arrival of the Airstream Land Yacht!

There were several customers anxiously waiting to shop the trailer, including Janey, a Hawthorne regular who has a deep-seated love of vintage western wear and an obsession with Mexican tourist jackets. She ended up purchasing three to add to her collection, along with a beautiful pair of tooled leather pumps.

The day started off with a bang! Our shoppers were in a frenzy trying to get their hands on crochet dresses, embroidered blouses, and vintage circle skirts. They loved discussing (and showing off) their finds. A white leather fringed poncho (as featured on our Instagram) was the most admired piece in the trailer.

Foot traffic remained steady throughout the day, with both regulars and new shoppers popping their heads in to see what goodies were tucked away in the trailer. During the middle of the day, employee, Mariel serenaded customers with her sweet voice and banjo.

The day felt like a little slice of Tucson brought to Portland. Portlanders only wished the trailer (and weather) would be sticking around longer.
