Really have to get myself up to Portland. There are some small businesses I would love to visit such as Hand Eye Supply. Could certainly use a few of the items from their work inspired collection. Here are a few lines from their â€˜Aboutâ€ page that explains their philosophy:
â€œWe stock things that are nice to use, hard to find, lovely to touch, and inspiring in origin.â€
â€œWe carry cool things you can use to make other things, but how do we choose? By applying 3-part scrutiny to everything we stock. Every item in the shop needs to meet our high standards for Utility, Story, and Design. Being picky has its benefits: everything we carry is practical, interesting, ethically-sourced and well made.â€
