Julia Barbee's Awful Bicycle Accident and Temporary Closure

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Mon, Jul 16, 2012 at 3:44 PM

Over the weekend, longtime Portland designer/perfumer/vintage purveyor Julia Barbee posted a pretty horrible status update:

I knew something was wrong when I regained consciousness and heard strangers talking about collecting my teeth off the street... If you're biking at se 32nd & lincoln, that blood is mine!

Barbee was biking when her "bag caught in my wheel and I think maybe I was going over a speedbump? My face hit first..." Luckily, she was wearing a helmet, but the photo she later posted after two hours of surgery is rather grim. So! Due to that, she has also announced the likelihood that her studio in the 811 E Burnside building will be closed temporarily, most likely through the end of the month, at which point you should pay her a visit to compliment her scars and perhaps score yourself one of her wildly imaginative, one-of-a-kind, conversation starting pieces. Here's to a smooth recovery.
