Shopping from the present – Heritage Dry Goods

September 11th, 2013

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:
