Steampunk Wells & Verne

The name Wells &Verne pretty perfectly describes the influences owner Chris has had in creating this new steampunk shop in Sellwood. Her new shop is a wonderful start to one of my favorite genres of clothing, art and time machine ideology.
Chris popped in my shop a couple of weeks ago and bought a few props and since she bought one of my favorite Victorian wall brackets for oil lights, I had to ask what she was going to use it for. Chris told me about her new shop and how much she liked my shop and was excited to buy some things from me to add to her new venture. I quickly was intrigued so I stopped by on my day off (which never happens) and luckily she was in!  I took pictures of some of my favorite vignettes, fell in love with the use of peacock feathers and dress forms.

I love the jewelry made from antique hardware embellished with a feminine touch such as cameos and beads.

Peacock feathers and hats, what can be much better?

Chris has a nice selection of accessories and more to come.


When in Sellwood, if you have a love of vintage inspired clothing in the steampunk world,Wells & Verne is a must stop.

We were alone. Where, I could not say, hardly imagine. All was black, and such a dense black that, after some minutes, my eyes had not been able to discern even the faintest glimmer.
