It's becoming more and more rare to mention Radish Underground to Portland peep's with out them knowing and bragging about how amazing of a boutique it is. Forget about it being one of Portland's best kept secrets, Radish Underground has become a flagship of fashion and trendsetting in this town and soon, they might just take over the fashion world! It's no surprise how this store turned out so awesome once you meet the gals behind the curtain. Owners, Gina and Celeste have to be two of the most down to earth, and inspired people I know (not to mention, both of them are total babes)! I'm so proud to sell MapleXO products in this shop and soon we will offer limited Radish Edition pieces available at Radish Underground ONLY!

What’s the worst: Doing something lame (when you totally know better) and then feeling all shameful.

What’s the best: Having friends who completely love and support each other for decades. 

Skateboarding to you… three words: A Broken Tailbone
