Did I mention I love photobooths?

Photobucket
On of the wonderful things about working for yourself is that you can pick your days off. Usually Tuesdays are when I take photos for Etsy and clean everything, but instead Sam and I went to Portland with friends. Our friend Ian is back from Collage, so we gathered a little group and went to Powells books store. All the books I wanted were double what my store credit was, but oh so great. There's a book just with photos of vintage sewing patterns! And a 40s book I fell in love with, that had amazing photos. So I left empty handed.

We had dinner at Henry's, mine and Sam's favorite downtown restaurant. They have a really good veggie burger, if anyone ever goes there I highly recommend it.

Our last stop was The Ace Hotel, where we took three sets of photos in the vintage photobooth. Silly times.

Photo booths always seem to allow for so much fun and freedom in such a tiny, cramped space.

You look like you had so much fun! :) I love those sort of spur-of-the-moment days!

I found loads of old photobooths when i went to New York, they are so cool I have no idea why they took them all away in England! :(

Looks like you had a blast.

I've heard many great things about POWELL BOOKS. A friend of mine works there.
