Willow + Bark was started to help bring women's fashions to a much needed community. Owner, Traci Griffiths, grew up in a family owned retail department store business. In High School she worked after school and on Saturdays helping in the office posting transactions for the bookkeeper and moved to the junior department where she learned to assist customers find the right outfit and then became a buyer for the junior department.
After leaving and pursuing other career opportunities she returned to the retail world in Gresham, Oregon where she opened a gift and home decor store, The Twisted Vine. She helped customers create beautiful spaces in their homes and find the perfect gifts for friends and loved ones.
After spending 30+ years in the greater Portland area she returned to her home town, The Dalles, Oregon. It was then she realized the need for more options for women to find quality clothing in the community. She wanted to bring a stylish variety of clothing that would appeal to a broad age group of women both casual and workplace clothing. Willow + Bark Boutique was born.
