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.

  • Wall Street Week Ahead: Spring fever brings hope for U.S. earnings
    Several behemoths, including Apple, the largest U.S. company by market value, as well as Microsoft, McDonald's (MCD.N) and AT&T (NYS:T), are due to report earnings. They'll be accompanied by highfliers like Netflix and Facebook, giving the first real cross-section of the state of corporate America as temperatures rise across the country and investors hope to put the cold weather behind them. Strategists will also be looking for clues on how badly China's slowdown hits U.S. corporate results. The first batch of earnings came out as equities were working their way through a selloff led by trading-crowd favorites like Netflix and the biotech stocks.
  • Rajaratnam's brother loses bid to dismiss insider trading charges
    Rengan Rajaratnam, the younger brother of imprisoned hedge fund manager Raj Rajaratnam, on Friday lost a bid to dismiss some of the insider trading charges leveled against him last year. U.S. District Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald in Manhattan ruled that the indictment adequately alleged the essential elements of the crimes charged. A lawyer for Rajaratnam did not respond to a request for comment. A spokeswoman for Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara declined to comment.
  • Compensation battle rages four years after BP's U.S. oil spill
    Jules Melancon, the last remaining oyster fisherman on an island dotted with colorful houses on stilts, says he has not found a single oyster alive in his leases in the area since the leak and relies on an onshore oyster nursery to make a living. The British oil major has paid out billions of dollars in compensation under a settlement experts say is unprecedented in its breadth. Some claimants are satisfied, but others are irate that BP is now challenging aspects of the settlement. The oil company has spent over $26 billion on cleaning up, fines and compensation for the disaster, which killed 11 people on the rig and spilled millions of barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico for 87 days after the blast on April 20, 2010.
