Sadly, we didn't get any true "before" shots of the space. From the sound of it, the coat of paint that's now gracing our walls did wonders! So here we are, in downtown SW Portland, in a perfectly sized, excellently positioned retail space. (A former See's Candy Shop as you can see from on of the images)How did this all happen? Direct any and all questions to Rachel. I am just appreciating the opportunity, and treating it like magic!
workroom 719 is a temporary shop/studio/artist collaborative organized by designer Rachel Ancliffe.
Occupying a vacant storefront (the former See's Candy Shop) right in the heart of the commercial district in SW Portland, OR,workroom 719 is a living, working artist studio as well as a retail space. Ancliffe has curated a selection of work by other artists, designers and craftspeople to accompany her featured clothing line, Charles & Victoria. Read more about the people and project below.

We can not thank the following people and organizations enough for the space, time and support that launched the PDX Pop-Up Shop project and thus, workroom719. It is an amazing opportunity for all our designers and artists involved, and for the commercial district as a whole.
