Without local shops, shoppers would buy gifts exclusively from in-flight catalogs, forcing fathers to sneak into airplane wheel wells on Black Friday to order spy-camera blenders for their children. Enjoy earthbound browsing with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of home décor, jewelry, clothing, and other stylish goods at Motifs.
Boasting a hefty collection of home accent pieces, stylish designer clothing, and a vast array of creative knickknacks, Motifs brings aesthetic panache to its historic Old Port abode. Lonely walls dream of being covered in the amusing and sentimental quotes found on Primitives by Kathy boxed signs ($28), and unscented oxygen awaits the chance to frolic and two-step amid the fragrant aromas of Root candles ($6.95). From Hard Tail activewear ($58) to sassy Miss Me jeans ($98), Motifs carries body armor with flair and style, along with adornments such as earrings ($12.95), necklaces ($14.95), and rings ($9.95). As Portland’s exclusive Trollbeads dealer, the shop makes matches between the colorful, sub-bridge-dwelling beads and their human soul mates.
