Buy Olympia store opening in Portland

buyolympia.com started back in 1999 - the early days of the rise in the handmade D.I.Y. art, craft and design movement. They have been an inspiration for us here at Bluebottle and have also stocked Matthew's gear for several years. Well, we are happy to annouce that they have just opened their very own retail venue in Portland!

LAND, a retail store and art gallery on Portland’s historic Mississippi Avenue opened just last Friday.


buyolympia.com's impressive roster includes Portland-based artists Jill Bliss, Trish Grantham, The Black Apple, Apak, Aron Nels Steinke, Heather Treadway, Arcana Soaps, Tiny Meat, Tenth and Grant, Bread and Badger, as well as Nikki McClure, Sarah Utter, Little Otsu, Tae Won Yu, Stella Marrs, Matthew Porter, McSweeney’s, Zicmuse, Yeti, M. Sasek, Puckish, Emily Ryan Lerner, Kiku, Rachel Carns and tons more.

LAND will carry a similarly marvelous selection of T-shirts, books, zines, DVDs, CDs, magazines, bags, apparel, jewelry, belt buckles, guitar straps, home goods, cards, posters, calendars, journals, wallets, stuff for kids, stuff for wedding gifts, a card for every occasion, stuff for your bicycle-crazed pals, stuff for the ladies, stuff for the gents.
