One of the benefits of having a retail space in one of Portland's Activ Space locations is the feeling of being part of a community of small businesses. One of these people that moved into her space around the same time as I did was Jasmine Tran of Essance, a natural aromatherapy company that specializes in holistic skincare and aromatherapy. Jasmine is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to her business. We often chat about our businesses, and frequently are the only two left working in our shops after every one has closed down. One morning I went to visit her in her shop, and she asked me about an unpainted display table. She wondered if she could paint it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™.
