Love is in the air at Xtabay,  just in time for Valentine's Day.

 After the holidays Xtabay always feels a little neglected. January is a tough month. There is a palpable sense of emptiness that takes over the shop after the holiday decorations come down. Frankly, I hate it.  In order to remedy this, I MADE A COMMITMENT to pour my heart out into the store. I think it worked. Come by and feel the LOVE!

Grand Opening Party This Friday!

 I am so excited to announce that our sister store The English Department has officially moved in with Xtabay Vintage Bridal Salon. We think it is a match made in heaven. The English Department carries a carefully hand curated collection of timeless, vintage inspired wedding gowns from local designers as well as national and international designers. We proudly feature the gowns of The English Department's founder Elizabeth Dye, Portland designer Claire La Faye, Portland native turned Project Runway winner Leanne Marshall, New York designers Nicole Miller and Jenny Yoo, Australian designers Sarah Janks and Claire Pettibone, and Los Angeles designer Rose and Delilah. 
We will continue to feature a collection of vintage wedding gowns and reception dresses. In order to make room for the The English Departments vast collection I have moved most of the more casual vintage wedding/reception dresses downstairs, where they can be viewed and tried on without an appointment. 
The English Department is open by appointment Wednesday-Sunday. Call us at 503-234-7568 to make an appointment.  Most importantly, we will be having a grand opening party on January 15th at 6:30 pm. Local vendors will be serving up cocktails and desserts. It should be a fabulous affair!
