At the Circus.

I don’t know if you have come by the shop in the past month, but it looks like the circus has arrived! Inside both of our huge front windows there are wooden games, acrobats, clowns, and even a full-size puppet theater with wiggling marionettes…

The entire display was handcrafted and painted by local artist Stephanie Brockway, who has been showing her work all over since 2004. She definitely knows how to craft a beautiful puppet. Each one has it’s own unique look and seems like its right out of the twenties or thirties. All items are available to purchase (prices vary.) Come stop by and see these fanciful creations yourself!

Looking for more circus merriment? How about a huge book on Magic? Fake moustaches? Old-timey taffy? Bright patterned glasses & a vintage clown bell? Here at Flutter, we love the circus- come one, come all!

The Circus Book by Taschen at Flutter

Hello,

I’m so happy to introduce myself as a new guest blogger for Flutter. My name is Brehan Todd, I am a designer, blogger and lover of fashion, here in Portland, Oregon. Flutter happens to be my favorite boutique, of all time, so I couldn’t be more excited to starting writing these Flutter blog posts regularly for you!

I’ve been fortunate enough to work with Flutter, designing custom jewelry for two years. I have become even more of a Flutter enthusiast than when I first set foot in the shop, years ago, before I moved to Portland. The owners have a special way of creating a new experience for visitors, each time you stop by!

The Portland retail store and the Flutter Online Shop always carry a fantastic selection of ephemera and oddities inspired by the circus. This season there happens to be some particularly amazing circus related toys, enchanting jewelry and heaps of other curiosities available in-store and online. We just got in this amazing new coffee table book by Taschen called The Circus. To help with Holiday shopping, now through November 30th, Flutter online orders of $100 or more will automatically receive FREE SHIPPING at checkout! This is also great since The Circus book is quite large!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been inspired by all things circus since I was swaddled in my first blanket, covered in circus animals. I use primarily vintage images such as the ones above to help me design new circus pieces. Stop by THE GREATEST STORE ON EARTH soon and you can also snap up my new, circus-inspired jewelry creations!
