Ashland Artisan Emporium

Featured Vendor: Noa Tamashiro of Un-Tailored

This month we celebrate the talent and stylings of fashion genius and local high school senior, Noa Tamashiro. Noa has been curating his own menswear booth with us for a couple of years now. As he gets ready to graduate (CONGRATULATIONS!), we pause to applaud his vision and the amazing clothing he brings to our community! We hope he will stay with the Emporium for many years to come.

“My name is Noa Tamashiro, I’m a high school senior at Brighton Academy in Grants Pass, Oregon. I started my booth in the Ashland Artisan Emporium when I was 16 and I am earning an entrepreneurial credit towards my diploma. My shop, Un-Tailored, is a unique vintage and modern, new and used men’s store. Featuring gently used name brand, high-quality and stylish men’s clothing like button-down dress shirts, wool and cotton sweaters, jeans, jackets, belts, new cashmere scarves and wool socks in addition to vintage wool blankets and a variety of men’s accessories. We are always on the hunt for the unique items that sell so well in Ashland. We add new items every week. We keep our prices reasonable so everyone can afford something. Come see us in booth #583 @ The Ashland Artisan Emporium! 1670 Ashland Street in Ashland”

Ashland Artisan Emporium

The Ashland Artisan Emporium is owned by Michelle Christian, wife and mother of 3 daughters. Her husband, Travis, is the business manager for Adroit Construction in Ashland, Oregon. The Emporium was the vision of Michael Rydbom, Michelle's father. In April of 2010, Michael asked his daughter if she would be willing to help transform the old DJ's Video space into a crafter's marketplace. Michelle had always admired her dad's entrepreneurial spirit and was eager to make him proud, so even though she already had two kids, a real estate career and one more daughter on the way, she said yes. On November 1, 2010, the store opened it's doors to a welcome reception from the community. They were voted Best New Business of 2010 only months later by the Ashland Sneak Preview. Within weeks of opening, the store was at capacity and had quickly become the "go-to" store for all things unique and affordable.
