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.
