We shopped online, and here are a few things we’d buy with $500 from Schoolhouse.
Above: This Factory Modern No. 4 Outdoor Sconce is Schoolhouse’s version of the classic barn light, made of spun steel and painted by hand at the Schoolhouse factory in Portland. Available in black, white, and yellow, it’s $269. Above: This Locking Mailbox is made of heavy-gauge, galvanized steel with a powder-coated finish in white, black, and green. It’s “nearly indestructible,” says the company, and comes with a limited lifetime warranty; $139. Above: Made of hemp fibers by a fair-trade cooperative, a durable Herringbone Door Mat has an African-inspired pattern; $149. Above: Made by hand by a family-owned factory in Germany, a German Boot Brush is a front porch staple made from oiled beechwood with horsehair bristles; $68. Above: An Allegheny Indoor/Outdoor Sconce is vigorously tested to withstand wind and rain, and is available in black, white, and a 1970s-inspired butterscotch yellow; $179. Above: Designed by Schoolhouse and sewn in the Portland factory, this Plaid Picnic Blanket is an “ode to Pacific Northwest living,” made of wool and backed in black nylon; $179.
