THE FIELD HOUSE




RETAIL - One of our favourite retailers has extended their network of retail spaces. Blackbird has recently opened The Field House, located in Seattle. The store will be stocking the likes of Pendleton, Woolrich Woolen Mills, April 77, Filson, Bee Raw Honey and Cire Trudon.

The story behind the space is:

"the field house is reminiscent of general stores that were once at the heart of rural towns across America. Its shelves are stocked with a wide variety of merchandise, including classic work wear, vintage goods, basic groceries and candies, flowers, and perfumes and candles. It captures the history, geography, and folklore of times past, when goods were less disposable and had more meaning, a time when people canned their own food and took a moment to converse with strangers."
