South Sound Magazine’s writeup of Feather & Oar

Have you been to Feather & Oar yet? If not, you should! Spaceworks alum Feather & Oar started as a Spaceworks Creative Enterprise a few blocks away at 311 S. 7th over the holiday season and in January 2013 they found a new space, dialed it in*, opened their doors January 21st, and have been going gangbusters ever since. Owners JD Elquist and Travis Pranger will make your experience in the store an enjoyable one, along with the other talents they have gathered in the mix: stylist Drew Collier, bespoke tailor MacLachlan, CFO Robert Taylor, Ricky the tailor, and leather maker Stephen Jones. Buy some cool men’s clothes, have some alterations done, pick up a pound of coffee, snag a leather iphone holder, have your hair done, or just chat with these folks and walk out feeling good! Your thoughts about fashion or the potential of Tacoma will be uplifted.Feather & Oar Logo

* Dialing it in included hauling over 10,000 lbs of material (layers upon layers of flooring, sheetrock, and more) out of the space to reveal the 1911 character of the building.

Feather & Oar is open six days a week, Monday – Saturday 10-6 at 759 Market Street – Tacoma, Washington 98402.

Spaceworks Tacoma is thrilled to highlight its Creative Enterprise projects that started in a vacant commercial Spaceworks space and have transitioned into being paying lease holders in the city of Tacoma! It shows that Spaceworks works!

Do you have an idea that would transform a vacant space in Tacoma? We’d love to hear about it! Applications for the next Spaceworks round will be available May 1st. Email Spaceworks Coordinator Heather Joy to get on our notification list.
