Archival Guest Appearance

I love it when Archival customers emerge from the ether to visit our headquarter in Eugene, Oregon. This weekend, Patrick H., a longtime AC reader, dropped by on his way back from a Victoria, BC, to San Francisco bike tour. Patrick first reached out to Archival asking for SF shop recommendations (we have many!). It was great to hear about Patrick’s trip and his work at MEC – the Canadian equivalent of REI. Unsurprisingly, Patrick and I share many mutual obsessions – from lugged steel Rivendell bicycles and Filson field bags to notebooks and fine writing instruments. Documentary evidence of Patrick’s visit below:
