Mindie Gottlieb, left, Brodie Gottlieb and Rosie Gottlieb are ready to help customers at Love Me 2 Times on Chetco Avenue in Brookings.
Love Me 2 Times, the new upscale resale shop on Chetco Avenue, is a group effort, according to grandma Rosie Gottlieb, mama Mindie Craig, and little Brodie, who doesn’t sell much, but certainly entertains the clients.

The family is pretty well known by those who frequented the Salty Dog in its early days. “Lots of people knew my dad,” Mindie said about her father, Craig Gottlieb, the original owner of The Salty Dog espresso shop at the Port of Brookings Harbor.

When Brodie was born in January, grandma Rosie said she headed south from her San Francisco home to meet her new grandson, and, after meeting him, she hasn’t been able to leave.

After he was born, Mindie said she wanted to find a job that would allow her to be with her baby. She and Rosie put on their thinking caps and decided that what Brookings needed was a store for consignment shoppers.

Mindie said, “We looked around and found this space, and decided to go for it, and it’s working. People have been so supportive, bringing in great new clothes, and our first inventory was a blessing that friends and family brought to us in bags.”

Rosie nodded and said, “In less that 90 days, we have 55 consigners, from Brookings, Gold Beach, Crescent City, Medford, Ashland, and other places.”

“We have great new merchandise and gently used garments to fit all sizes and tastes, fashions for the young and old,” Mindie chimed in.

She reeled off a list of easily recognized brands, including, Abercrombie, Hollister, American Eagle, Roxy, Forever 21, and more.

The store is accepting new merchandise daily, and Rosie suggested, “Please come in and see the exciting fashions we have, and we’ll have a real good time.”

The shop, located at 547 Chetco Ave., is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday and Saturday, and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. The telephone number is 541-813-1218.

  • Economy seen regaining muscle in second quarter
    U.S. economic growth likely regained steam in the second quarter as activity picked up broadly, which would bolster expectations for a stronger performance in the last six months of the year. Gross domestic product likely grew at a 3.0 percent annual rate after shrinking at a 2.9 percent pace in the first quarter, according to a Reuters survey of economists. "I don't think the contraction we saw in the first quarter is reflective of what's truly going on in the economy," said Gus Faucher, senior economist at PNC Financial Services Group in Pittsburgh. Earlier in the second quarter, growth estimates were as high as 4 percent, but they were cut as trade, consumer spending and business investment rebounded from the winter slump by less than expected.
  • Asian shares hit six and a half year high, dollar steady before Fed
    Asian shares touched a six-and-half-year peak on Wednesday and the dollar was steady, with investors waiting for second quarter U.S. growth data as well as a U.S. Federal Reserve meeting that some believe might yield a more hawkish policy outlook. The Fed will not be updating its economic forecasts and Chair Janet Yellen will not hold a news conference following the two-day policy meeting, leaving investors' focus squarely on a statement scheduled to be released at 2 p.m. (18:00 GMT).
  • AstraZeneca buys Almirall lung drugs for up to $2.1 billion
    AstraZeneca (AZN.L) took a major step to build up its respiratory medicine business on Wednesday by striking a deal worth up to $2.1 billion for the rights to Spanish group Almirall's (ALM.MC) lung drugs. The British drugmaker, which resisted a $118 billion takeover attempt by Pfizer (PFE.N) in May, said it would pay an initial $875 million and up to $1.22 billion more if the drugs meet development and sales targets. The tie-up boosts a key therapeutic area for AstraZeneca, whose Chief Executive Pascal Soriot is determined to show his company has a strong independent future. Soriot also struck a clinical trial collaboration with Japan's Kyowa Hakko Kirin (4151.T) for a study that will evaluate a combination of the two companies' drugs in cancer - another important field for AstraZeneca.
