The Stand Up Comedy owner on taking risks, avant-garde fashion, and the quirks of communal living.
AS TOLD TO GOSSAMER
I’m the owner ofStand Up Comedy, a men's and women's boutique in Portland, Oregon, where I grew up. In the past, we’ve called it “the world's smallest department store” because we hit every kind of retail offering in a really teeny, minuscule kind of way. We specialize in progressive, experimental, and cult brands across clothing, accessories, art objects, and printed matter—although not so much the printed matter these days.
