We’re excited to announce a new Archival x Heritage Dry Goods Pop-Up Shop for October 17 in Eugene, Oregon. We’ll be showcasing some of our new product releases including our updated, Archival Waxed Down Vest. We’ll also be giving away Archival Zip Totes during the event. Heritage Dry Goods, our Eugene stockist, will be showcasing their new expanded space and updated inventory of smartly curated, made in USA wares. Drop by and shop for Red Wing Pottery, Fairbault Blankets, Almond Surfboards & Design or something from the shop’s vintage outerwear offerings.
Eugene, Oregon is the home base for Archival Clothing. We’ve been shipping bags worldwide since 2010. However, we have never had a formal brick and mortar store for showcasing bags to local customers. All that has changed with the opening of Heritage Dry Goods, a new retail store focusing on American made goods. Nicole Gillson, owner of Heritage, has stocked her shop with many products from her home state of Minnesota including Faribault blankets, Red Wing Pottery, Leather Goods and Tru-Nord compasses and Leather Works Minnesota leather goods. Archival goods are also well represented in the shop. At the moment, Heritage carries our Archival Rucksack, Archival Field Bag, Archival Flap Musette and Zip Pouches. Heritage shares a retail space with Plume Red, a shop focusing on European gifts, apothecary, housewares and jewelery. Plume is your new, go to Eugene source for Opinel knives (an Archival favorite). Here a few snaps from my recent visit to Heritage/Plume:
In Randonneuring, a perm is a permanent route you can schedule to ride at any time. On Saturday, I rode Michal Young’s scenic Alsea 200k loop with several friends from the Oregon Randonneurs. On Sunday, I dragged my friend Bruce up to Portland for what I would consider my favorite Archival shopping perm. The loop starts somewhere around Eye Styles, migrates over to Little Tee for lunch followed by gabbing and gawking at Blake, coffee at Barista, more aspirational shopping at Lizard Lounge and than a post meal retreat to Cinema 21. Though I rarely make purchases on my perm, I consistently catch and release the same evidential photos: Japanese eyewear, FWK Engineered Garments, heritage footwear, denim and print ephemera from the movies. Contact me if you wish to recreate my route. I will provide you with a start time, a list of controls and a few informational questions to confirm that you followed the correct route. Here is some evidence of participation from my weekend:
Thanks to local bike mechanic, Louis (aka Luigi), for providing me with a print edition of the Bruce Gordon Cycles factory tour. Conducted in Eugene, Oregon, the tour features Gordon’s revolutionary, all robot workforce.

Thanks to all our local fans for stopping by last Friday for our first ever Odds ‘n’ Ends sale. Thanks to Brad at Well Spent and Jesse at Put This On for helping us to promote the event. Some snap views:
