Every once in a while, a collaboration rolls around that almost seems too good to be true. That’s how we feel about Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co teaming up with Egg Press for an upcoming joint sample sale. Schoolhouse Electric, purveyor of fine home and office goods, is a destination spot for locals and travelers alike. We’ve spent hours in there, marveling over everything from clocks and light bulbs to enamelware mugs and camp blankets. When Schoolhouse Electric did a recent product expansion, they called on Egg Press to design a series of exclusive prints for the store. We adore the beautiful handmade letterpress greeting cards and lifestyle products that Egg Press creates, so the pairing of these two deeply-loved Portland businesses makes us incredibly happy.
The sample sale will take place April 26th-27th (from 10AM-6PM) and April 28th (from 11AM-4PM) at the Schoolhouse Electric library. Egg Press will be selling cards for $1 and Schoolhouse will have some great deals on floor models and accessories. If you miss the first pick on Friday and Saturday, don’t worry—Egg Press will be selling the remaining cards on Sunday at 50% off. So, that means you’ll score unique letterpress cards for $.50 a piece! (We told you this was almost too good to be true.) Though the in-person sale will feature printed products that are not featured on the website, those who can’t make it to the actual sale are able to shop a virtual sample sale on Egg Press’s website going on right now through the 26th.We’ll see you over there! And if it gets crazy, we apologize for ripping that card out of your hand in advance.Sample Sale:4/26-4/27 (10AM-6PM), 4/28 (11AM-4PM)Schoolhouse Electric2181 NW Nicolai St.Portland, OR 97210Written by: Lauren Kodiak
