MackerelCrow visits Rio's Loadstar

In a little parking lot off the main drag in Georgetown, WA is an assortment of vintage camping trailers. Amongst those trailers is a very unique storefront. Rio's Lodestar deals in rare and collectable marine heirlooms. MackerelCrow likes this place, and not just because we have our bags there. :)

The careful eye will detect a vintage tools section complete with a rare assortment of hand planes.

This adjustable surface plane is particularly badass. Great for hewing curved surfaces, as on a boat hull.

This sort of architectural marine hardware is highly arousing.

Rio's Lodestar is located at 5805 Airport way south, Seattle, WA and is the brain child of shopowner Nico (pictured above) - learn more here.

MackerelCrow is a product design collaborative in Seattle, Washington.
