The Long

I was born and raised in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Over the years I’ve worked in a number of trades from plumbing to skatepark building from coast to coast. This experience has taught me the value of tough goods and quality materials that are built to last. The designs we produce here at Phee’s Original Goods aim to respect the legacy of craftspeople before us while fitting squarely into the contemporary world (and your pocket). We consider ourselves proud citizens of the North Atlantic. My partner Robyn and I make our home on beautiful Cape Breton Island. you’ll notice we name each of our products after places in Cape Breton and we hope you’ll visit your wallet’s namesake someday.
