Everything to Tickle Your Spirit
As with so many of us, I felt it was time for a new direction," says Judy Pattee, owner of the new Sellwood Spirit Feathers, "Everything to Tickle Your Spirit." Located on Antique Row in the quaint Sellwood area of Portland, Judy offers meditation and healing aids, aromatherapy, books, bath & body goodies, unique clothing collections with accessories, unusual gift items, CDs, crystals, cappuccino and popcorn.

It's an eclectic mix but the feeling is the same throughout the entire shop - healing. "I have loved having a dress shop on the West Side for almost 11 years, but this is brand new for me. I saw this lovely old house and knew immediately it could be converted into a complete Healing Center." Her vision involved designing a meeting room in the basement, which is available by the hour, day or weekend. She bought 20 folding chairs to make it ready for those groups who need a home.

Also included in the remodeling is a new office space downstairs complete with private entrance and reception area perfect for meeting clients at any hour. The main floor offers a small room available by the hour or day for healing work. The full sized kitchen could become someone's dream of offering a lunch or catering service.

"There is so much potential in the space, and as time goes by I learn more about what should be happening here. I see LMTs, Counselors, Tarot Readers, Psychics, and Aromatherapists, all busy with their work in these rooms.

"Sellwood is easy to get to from all directions and the area is drawing healing energy in with each passing month. I do so love hanging out at the shop each day, especially since I got the popcorn maker!" Her experiences include training in Therapeutic Touch/Energy work, Feng Shui, Qi Gong, Hatha Yoga, firewalking, South America Rain Forest projects, and several years of sailing the various seas of this planet.

Anyone interested in renting the space should contact Judy @ 230-2469 or Sellwood Spirit Feathers is open 6 days a week with Monday being a day off.
