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.

  • Apple iPhones allow extraction of deep personal data, researcher finds
    Personal data including text messages, contact lists and photos can be extracted from iPhones through previously unpublicized techniques by Apple Inc employees, the company acknowledged this week. The same techniques to circumvent backup encryption could be used by law enforcement or others with access to the "trusted" computers to which the devices have been connected, according to the security expert who prompted Apple's admission. In a conference presentation this week, researcher Jonathan Zdziarski showed how the services take a surprising amount of data for what Apple now says are diagnostic services meant to help engineers. As word spread about Zdziarski’s initial presentation at the Hackers on Planet Earth conference, some cited it as evidence of Apple collaboration with the National Security Agency.
  • Wall St. Week Ahead: Even modest GDP bounce may support market
    Even if data next week shows a mediocre rebound in U.S. economic growth, that might be enough to keep the stock market aloft at record highs and the Federal Reserve steadfast in its winding down of stimulus through bond purchases. Growth had shrunk 2.9 percent in the first quarter due to a harsh winter and spending cuts tied to the federal Affordable Care Act. Indeed, Friday's disappointing report on durable goods orders in June spurred JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs to shave their second-quarter outlook by 0.1 percentage point to 2.6 percent and 3.0 percent growth, respectively.
  • Facebook says SEC's IPO probe ends, extending WhatsApp closing date
    In its quarterly report filed on Thursday, Facebook said the regulator in May "notified us that it had terminated its inquiry and that no enforcement action had been recommended by the SEC." Facebook shares began trading on May 18, 2012, but soon fell below their $38 per share offering price and had lost more than half their value by the middle of August, angering investors. Investors also complained they were not told just prior to the IPO that analysts at Facebook's investment banks were cutting their forecasts after learning of the company's internal projections for advertising revenue. The end of the SEC probe does not affect shareholder litigation against Facebook, Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg and many banks over the Menlo Park, California-based company's IPO.
