1. The recession is over.
2. My adopted city of Portland decides to grow up and get over it's thrift store and DIY aesthetic. Portland has it's charms but high end design, fashion and retail is not on that list....YET!
3. It's been so long that the reasons why I don't want to return to the life of a shopkeeper fade away completely.
In the mean time I will continue to dream and enjoy the inspiration provided in this lovely image of the new Selvedge shop.
