Hello Friends and Gorge Neighbors,

Do what you LOVE and the MAGIC will follow.  ~ Christina LaFever

In May when I launched The Dwelling Station I imagined a once a month weekend ‘Event’ throughout the summer.  I thought it would take 30 days to ‘reload’ the store with fresh consignment furnishings brought in by gorge locals.

Well, what do I know?

It’s now September. Which has 5 weekends. And we’ve been open every one of them. It turns out repurposing Mosier’s Beloved Little Old Gas Station into a hub for sourcing gently loved, gently priced furniture and decorating accessories is good for the hood. You don’t have to drive to Portland. You don’t have to wait for the retail stores to have a sale. You don’t have to search all the on line ads, hit all the garage and estate sales and drive all over the place!

And, you don’t have to live with clutter and things you don’t love. You can consign it, let it find a happy new home, and get paid for it.

That’s what over 75 gorge locals have done. Which is why our selection is so spectacular and unusual. And why customers keep coming back to see what on earth has showed up this week!

I’ll tell you what showed up. Today. A 25 foot trailer. AFTER The Station was already completely filled and staged for Saturdays opening. So I told that crazy fella I would take his beautiful furniture and he could leave his nice big trailer on the property to show it! In true Mosier style, he agreed.

The Dwelling Station is OPEN:

September 29/30, Saturday and Sunday, 9am – 3pm

October 12, 13 and 14th, 10am – 4pm

(PLEASE call me any day of the week to bring in consignment furnishings rather than wait for opening weekend

 … Unless you’re leaving your spiffy big trailer of course)

  1. consider posting on http://www.joeboard.com, the LOCAL community bulletin board for the gorge (and the regular-joe). up to 12 photos per ad (all free of course), ads run for over 30 days and can be auto-relisted 3 times. Easier and more full featured than Craig, I’m afraid… Christina… what are you waiting for? joeboard.com has nearly 4000 registered users, that’s about 1/3 of the gorge 🙂
