purchasing philosophy: At
Livingscape, we encourage "engaged living" ...
engaged with place, people and food. To this end,
in our purchasing decisions, we look for goods
that are affordably or reasonably priced, of very
good quality and, if and as possible, locally
and/or sustainably made. For example, many of
our cooking utensils are made here in Portland
and our knives, stovetop cookware, and pressure
canners are made in the U.S. We balance these
objectives with cost, striving to achieve reasonable
and affordable pricing for our customers.
