A little bit of Europe just came into Presents of Mind!

Our owner Seasons went to Europe for the month of September in celebration of her 40th birthday & with the goal of finding some unique items for the store. She stumbled onto a tiny factory store front in Murano while visiting Venice & found these gorgeous handmade Murano glass earrings; they are truly a piece of Italy right here in Portland. later in her trip she found the most gorgeous infinity scarves in a small shop in Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic. She was able to negotiate a good price, by basically buying out his stock. The scarves are super soft, they work as a shall or scarf and come in the most gorgeous patterns & colors. It’s possible she will be able to get more of these items, but not likely. Make sure you come & claim your bit of Europe while you can!
