Tyler Hays of BDDW named his haven for handcrafted goods in Manhattan after the historic Wallowa County general store he bought in 2012.
Today, M. Crow in Lostine still serves as a general store, albeit one that also sells local produce and beef, hardware, beer brewed in the back room and ceramics made with clay dug a few miles down the road. It also carries discounted items from Mr. Hays’s line of meticulously produced accessories.
