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.

  • Asian stocks slip, euro hits one-year low on ECB uncertainty
    MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan lost 0.4 percent after managing to carve out gains on the previous day. Tokyo's Nikkei (.N225) bucked the trend and rose 1.2 percent, with a planned cabinet reshuffle by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe helping fuel reform hopes. In currencies, the dollar, boosted by the flagging euro and gains in Tokyo shares that dented the appeal of the safe-haven yen, rose to a seven-month high of 104.76 yen (JPY=). The market is also keeping an eye on the rise in equities," said Shinichiro Kadota, chief Japan FX strategist at Barclays Bank in Tokyo.
  • China anti-trust probes not protectionist, regulator says
    China's latest antitrust probes, which have hit firms such as Microsoft (MSFT.O) and Volkswagen AG (VOWG_p.DE), are not protectionist tools that favor domestic firms, an official of the country's price regulator told the official China Daily. In an interview, Xu Kunlin, director general of price supervision and the anti-monopoly bureau at the National Development Reform Commission, reiterated that the agency was giving equal treatment to local and foreign companies. The probes, which have scrutinized at least 30 foreign firms so far as China seeks to enforce a 2008 anti-monopoly law, have worried U.S. "Such accusations are groundless and baseless," the China Daily quoted Xu as saying.
  • China won't force foreign auto parts makers to form local JVs: EU trade body
    The European trade body in China said Beijing is not planning to force foreign auto parts suppliers operating in the country to form local joint ventures, dismissing a report last week that had stirred concern among European firms. Germany's Stuttgarter Zeitung newspaper reported that China had urged three German car parts suppliers to form partnerships with local rivals, citing the head of German parts supplier ElringKlinger AG (ZILGn.DE). "The European Chamber is confident that these rumors are unfounded and that the Chinese government has no intention to require the formation of joint ventures in the sector," the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China said in a statement on its website dated Aug. 29. The European Chamber said the JV rumors could be the result of a misunderstanding stemming from existing restrictions dating from 2011 for suppliers in the e-vehicle segment.
