These are my final days in Portland! We'll be moving closer to some family needs in Reno, NV in ONE month. Mavora will close for two weeks to get our footing and when we reopen all of my save the date tags will be available again. My main girl Kateri will continue to print and ship bags from Portland but I have to say goodbye to the rest of my PDX girl team. I am so sad!! Nikki, Kathy, Reilly, & Melissa were such blessings to me! Now I have to make a whole new amazing crew in Reno, but I have faith it will come together. And the very best news is a bigger home, which translates into an awesome office for Mavora. I will send pictures when it's done...in like 2 years.
I was thinking a while back that I would scale down the business but somehow I find myself in a renewed state of vision and hope. Mavora grew so much in the 4 years we've been in Oregon. We're like a whole new company and I'll never forget the strides forward we took here. I can feel the love from my customers and I get to pass that on by employing amazing women to craft handmade products. I get to mentor. I get to build. And that's who I am at my core; I'm a builder. So I will just keep following this path as long as it reflects who I am and I make products that reflect who my customers are.
Thank you Portland and the fabulous people you hold. I will not be forgetting you.
