The Mud Bay chain of stores is based in Olympia, Washington, and already has eleven locations around the Portland metropolitan area, and stores in Bend and Salem, in addition to many locations in the Seattle region. The store's website announces that the Sellwood store will be opening this coming Spring – but no exact date for the opening has been announced. New "boutique and maker's market" opens in Southeast: Judy Martin e-mails THE BEE that "Uplifted Boutique and Makers Market" has opened at 5404 S.E. 72nd Avenue, at Insley Street, in the Mt. Scott-Arleta neighborhood – "to encourage individual creativity and to offer a supportive environment for people to share their talents with others; fun and funky resale of women's fashion; accepting newer and gently used clothing for consignment." The shop, she says, provides space for local artists and makers to market their creations, and to host smaller events in the annex and courtyard, and she adds that the annex contains an intimate theater with a small stage for private events. The hours are Wednesday through Saturday noon to 6 p.m., and by appointment. Call 503/962-0911 to learn more.
