Hard Goods: Concrete Artisan Brandon Gore to Open Shop in Phoenix

Come late November, you'll need to add a must-see stop to your holiday shopping route.

Brandon Gore's been busy crafting concrete furniture pieces and decor in his studio and hauling them around the country for trade shows and clients, but he announced this morning that after Thanksgiving weekend, he'll be setting up shop in Phoenix and opening the doors to Hard Goods at 5215 N. Central Ave..

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.

Gore says he needed a venue to get his products in front of customers as well as a "space to offer additional well-designed, hand-crafted products from other companies."
