Here are two reasons why Canoe, a Portland shelter shop, is so awesome:
1. They sell Field Notebooks by Draplin Designs, a graphic design firm that sells all sorts of (honestly I don't know the right adjective to use here) merchandise that draws on Midwestern roots, like with the above old-school agricultural graph paper field notebooks ($9).
2. They sell old-school Pyrex canisters ($14), you know, the vessels that used to house tongue depressors and cotton pads in your friendly neighborhood doctor's office from the Norman Rockwell era?
