Bow Ties for Dogs??!! (Straight out of Portlandia)

Bow Ties for Dogs??!!  (Straight out of Portlandia)

I have written about the food cart “pod” that is a couple of blocks from our house.  It is an amazing gathering of carts that serve gourmet quality international food selections on the cheap.  We love it, both for the food and the low prices, as well as for the diversity of the crowd that gathers there.  In addition to the food carts, there are also a couple of cool shops, one in a double decker bus.

My daughter, Sarah, her daughter, Ingrid, and I took a stroll there over the weekend just to see what was going on.  They usually have music on the weekends and sometimes jugglers or acrobats or other types of free entertainment that Ingrid loves.  This week, we met a nice guy named Josh who had his sewing machine set up at a little table and was making bow ties for dogs.  Said he makes enough to support himself, which you have to admit, is very cool.

See?  This is what I love about Portland.  When people are broke, they don’t just sit around and complain about the economy.  They invent ways to make money.  This is my own way of thinking.    Here is a little video that I shot of Josh.  You’ll probably get a kick out of it.  Looks like a scenario straight out of Portlandia:

    • HA ha! Thanks. It’s cute. Isn’t it? Actually, I don’t go in for this type of thing for dogs, but the guy that was selling them donates proceeds to an Eastern Oregon wildlands fund, so I decided to write about him as my way of pitching in. Beatrix HATES this bow tie, so we may have to find some other use for it. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

Please tell me what you think! Go on! Leave a comment! It's ok! :-)
