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 ‘About” page that explains their philosophy:
“We stock things that are nice to use, hard to find, lovely to touch, and inspiring in origin.”
“We 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.”
