Stay at a Portland B&B furnished by Makers

I visited today with Bryan and Jen of Zenbox Design here in Portland (we might be working on a Maker how-to book together, so stay tuned for that!). They wear a lot of hats, literally and figuratively. These days they outfit camper vans and other spaces, and they also own a two-bedroom B&B in the heart of Portlandia, called Maker Flat, which is almost completely furnished with Portland-made products. You can stay there, of course, but you can also buy any of the funky furnishings, dealing directly with the artists at your convenience.

There is a portfolio book lying around, with prices and contact info inside. Or you can just enjoy your stay in a very handmade house, drinking in the local beer, wine and weirdness that is Portland.

More than anything, I think Maker Flat will inspire you to make something yourself.
