Sidewalk Sale!

It is our favorite time of year again! The annual Alberta Street Sidewalk Sale is this weekend and it may be its best year yet. There are a ton of shops participating, and I know I will be stopping by Amelia’s, Candy Babel, the Pencil Test and a bunch of others!  Make a day of it, stop by the Tin Shed for some brunch, meander down towards the main drag to see all of the great bargains, then maybe hit a happy hour at the Cruz Room after you shop till you drop.

We will also be having some fabulous sales of our own in the form of bargain bins! I promise you won’t be disappointed.  

The sale is on the 13th & 14th of September on Alberta Main Street. Hours will vary by location. 

We can’t wait to see you!

Meet the Team: Ariel


Hello! My name is Ariel and I’ve called the Pacific Northwest my home for most of my life. One thing I love about living here is changing shoes with the seasons! Every season brings on another excuse to buy new shoes to meet my needs. When it comes to shoes I either like a big chunky platform, a delicate flat, or a stylish pair of sneakers. When I’m not selling lovely shoes I’m out spending time with my new hubby James, reading, going to shows, biking around town, and hanging out with cats. I’m excited to be working with such a great team at pedX and Manifesto!


This just in - a super sweet statement necklace from local designer NIICO LABEL. The necklace combines two contrasting elements that together create a unique and cohesive piece unlike any other! Whether you pair it with a high-collared shirt or a flow-y dress it will take your outfit to a new chic & modern level.

The funnest fact - in a past life these wooden beads were wall hangings. We think that they’ll be much happier exploring the world from a well-adorned neck!
