field trip :: schoolhouse electric

After seeing a quick tweet about Schoolhouse Electric a few months ago, I quickly added it to my “must visit” list during our next trip to Portland. However, it wasn’t until I stepped into their amazing showroom, when I had a déjà vu moment and realized that I had already been here (Schoolhouse Electric used to be located on MLK across from the now closed Paper Zone in Portland)!

If I had an endless budget, I could have easily come home with a car full of classic fixtures and period lighting… and especially this + that.

In addition to the showroom on the main floor, the space is shared with Anna Mara Floral Design and Ristretto Roasters where we enjoyed a cold brew. I love how they used vintage library catalogues to hold secret messages!
