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:

Archival Permanent – PDX

May 23rd, 2013

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:
