After my whirl-wind journey to Los Angeles last weekend, I'm extremely happy to be back in Portland, OR. Prior to heading into The Woodlands, this morning, I took a quick trip out to our new Tanner Goods production studio in North Portland.
Situated north of the St. Johns bridge, the new space is exactly what we needed. With enormous south facing windows, the natural light comes streaming in all throughout the room. It is a wonderful and refreshing contrast from the windowless space we worked from before.
On-the-daily, I'll miss working side by side with this close-knit family but I couldn't be happier to see how we've grown over the years, and where we are today. Working with these people over the last 4 years has been one of the most amazing and rewarding experiences of my life. I don't think anyone realizes how lucky I am, and even more so, how thankful we all are for your support. We wouldn't be the same Tanner Goods without you. For that, we are forever grateful. I'd also like to let everyone know just how much I appreciate everything Sam and Mark have done for me. You are some of the best friends I could ever have, and I wholeheartedly appreciate the opportunities you've granted, and all the knowledge you've passed down.
Anyway, enoguh with the over-sentimentality. Let me know what you think of our new studio. We've got lots of exciting products, events and plans for the future and this is just the start of the next chapter for Tanner Goods.
