Project No. 8 at Table of Contents, Portland

When I decamped to New York City—almost two years ago now!—I made a beeline for Brooklyn. I was lured to the borough for a number of reasons, including the affordable-ish housing and the dense per capita population of artisanal cheesemongers. Nowadays, when I find myself disenchanted with a skyrocketing rent and an artless surplus of gruyere, I wonder what life would be like if I'd moved to that other bastion of handicraft and drip-brewed coffee: Portland.

Turns out, it would probably be a lot like my life in New York—at least in shopping terms—and more so now than ever, thanks to NYC-based Project No. 8's pop-up shop at Table of Contents. Founded in 2012 by Shu Hung and Joseph Magliaro, TOC features an international selection of objects, clothing, and publications focused around a seasonal theme. The pop-up shop, dubbed The Outpost, will feature clothing designed by Project No. 8, including unisex tees ($35), men's button-downs ($205), and women's shirt dresses ($605-$750.) A diverse selection of objet will also be on hand, from mini mechanical pencils ($10) to Oregon-centric custom key tags ($15) and hand-knit alpaca wool birds ($48-$64). (Yes, you can literally put a bird on it.) The shop opened this past Friday and will run through May 31, 2014. Table of Contents is located at 33 NW 4th Ave., Portland, OR.
