Which mascot has the Nikes?
AvantGarb's studio is filled with mascots in various stages of completion. There's lotsa fuzz, fur, bling, sequins, foam, people, mannequins, sewing machines, drills, a band saw, glue guns, spools and spools of thread, photos, ribbon and stuff stuff stuff. What I'm trying to say is that there's plenty to look at, touch and ponder . The place is really visually over-the-top.
In the midst of all the stuff of AvantGarb was a mascot-sized pair of Nikes. They were a visual magnet for everyone who came into AvantGarb. Everyone said, "Who's the mascot who gets the Nikes?" It was like there was nothing else in the room but the mascot-sized Nikes---well they are really big shoes!
LUCKY, the Portland Beaver's mascot is the lucky mascot who gets Nikes. Nike is a Beaver sponsor, and Lucky the Beaver has some great kicks!
