Seattle’s Blackbird has continued its retail domination with a new outpost dedicated to workwear treasures, vintage goods, basic groceries and even “smell good” items like candles, flowers and perfumes. The Field House is inspired by a community center that owner Nicole Miller’s grandmother spent time in as a child. As the store’s press release explains, “In a culture dominated by computers, The Field House is a refreshing invitation to slow down and connect with traditions that are lost and forgotten.” In addition to merchandise, The Field House plans to have free weekly classes on lost skills such as “How to Debone a Chicken” or “Lawnmower Repair.” The store will sell Christmas trees for the holidays and will serve a “cup-a-joe” from an insulated Stanley thermos.
Stay tuned for an upcoming, comprehensive feature on Blackbird’s many retail extensions and its effect on the Seattle fashion scene.
