'Camp Hollyhock' moves to Milwaukie Avenue

by: RITA A. LEONARD - Katie Melton, Store Manager at Camp Hollyhock, a handmade womens clothing store which just moved to a new location at 7007 S.E. Milwaukie Avenue, from quarters on S.E. 13th.“Camp Hollyhock”, a “handmade women’s clothing” store originally located in Sellwood, reopened in a new space in Westmoreland in March.

“Our new site at 7007 S.E. Milwaukie Avenue is triple the size of our former store on S.E. 13th,” says Store Manager Katie Melton. “We have the same prices, but triple the inventory. It’s brighter here, too, and we’ve added a dressing room.”

Melton and her mother, co-owner Marcee Melton, feature handmade clothing made from vintage fabrics for “baby girls, little girls, and women.” Marcee designs and sews all the items they sell, which feature pastel “girly” colors, lace, and Victorian accoutrements. “The former tenant here was ‘Coco Gets Dressed’, which moved next door to the south,” says Katie.

“We have lots of new styles, such as bloomers and tops for women, and tops and skirts for little girls,” she adds. “Every item here is one-of-a-kind. We have jewelry made by new local designers, as well as our signature handmade shopping bags. Our small Home Section features vintage aprons made by Shelley Henkle from ‘Why Not?’”

“Join us on Facebook, where you can find out about our special sales,” urges Katie. “We’re working hard to get ‘likes’ on Facebook so that more people can enjoy our unique styles. Camp Hollyhock is now open seven days a week – Monday through Saturday from 10:30 am to 6 pm, and on Sundays from 11 am to 5 pm.”
