The shop, next to Churn and Windsor in Phoenix, will carry Gore's concrete goods as well as sunglasses by Shwood, leather goods from Bison Made, prints from local designer Kelsey Dake, as well as other carefully curated offerings -- including concrete planters, straight razors, and aluminum iPhone cases.
