Handmade Hub

Beginning in 1999 in Olympia, Wash., the four-person team of Buy Olympia sought to fill a need for an online store to sell handmade goods made by their friends. Now the quartet operates out of Portland, curating a massive online site of goods from artists local and distant, such as Heidi Hopfer and the Black Apple, as well as more than 50 other artists. Stop by their brick-and-mortar shop/gallery Land in Portland, or peruse art prints, clothing and music from the comfort of your own home by shopping online. Buying local without having to change out of pajamas? Yes, please! E.H.
