Cook in style in one of these chic aprons. The denim aprons pictured here are made with premium material from Japan’s Kurabo Mill, known for some of the finest denim in the world. They’re server craft quality and come in two styles: Indigo with White Stripes and Restaurant Deco Black-and-White Stripes. The Red Stripes apron, one of our newest additions, is made from Lithuanian Linen in which the red yarn is interwoven with the rustic linen for a country chic look. Easy to clean with deep pockets, Cheryl makes these beautiful gourmet aprons by hand, and adds cotton twill tape and metal grommets to finish. This is the gift for the gourmand in your house!
We simply love these bangles by Lisa Hutson. For each bracelet, the natural blue and rare coral turquoise beads are wire wrapped together, then hooked on a hand-forged gold tone brass band. Once the bangle is finished, it tumbles for 18 hours in a blend of stainless steel shot which hardens it and smooths out any rough edges — a step that sets Lisa’s distinctive jewelry apart. Once they’ve been tumbled, each bracelet is polished by hand for the highest heirloom quality. Lisa creates all of her jewelry from her studio in Nashville, where she’s kept company by her two canine BFFs who often lend an ear to long conversations and serve as final judges when she just can’t decide on a design she’s working on.
For years we used standard, store-bought rolling pins…that were probably made in China. Now we only bake with these heavy, hand carved rollers by Arne and Pat Jonesen of Dogtown, Alabama. Each pin is unique and created using a variety of elegant wood. Weighing in at about .5 lb and approximately 15 inches in length, rolling pins like these are a must-have for the baker in your house.
We found the soothing remedy at a local farmers market and made nice with Mark, the creator, so he’d make us a big batch for the Mercantile. This herbal healing salve is formulated with olive oil and infused with calendula, comfrey, beeswax and castor oil, the salve promotes natural healing and has a light, clean scent. Comes in a handy 1.5 oz. tin. Made by the Simple Life Soap Co.
The perfect pitch for a quiet afternoon. These loose tea blends capture the essence of summer — when the peach trees blossom, roses come into bloom, and big, fat strawberries are popping up everywhere…from farmers markets and farm stands to the main attraction in salads, desserts and now an elegant herbal tea you’re sure to fall in love with. We’re featuring three custom blends you’ll find only here: Peach Pie, Guns & Roses and Strawberry Tea Forever. They were handcrafted in Taos, New Mexico, by Dana Blair of tea-o-graphy. Dana grew up in the South and developed a love of tea from the tea rituals she’s experienced all over the world. She creates her small-batch blends using the most precious, sustainably produced teas and herbs from around the globe. Available in 2-oz. bags (makes about 15 cups), serve any of these teas hot or iced. Made with all-natural, organic ingredients, with no chemicals, additives, artificial scents or flavors — they’re a taste of summer in a cup. Order all three and you’ll be stocked!
Soft, nectarous, sun-ripened peach notes, grounded by the crisp bright stamp of organic Ceylon black tea. Delicately paired with cassia cinnamon, lemon balm, marigold flowers, natural peach flavors and creamy fair trade vanilla bean to give the essence of a freshly baked summer peach pie. A sweet libation you can enjoy hot or cold that brings you a taste of summer, all year long.
Simply one of the finest tasting teas we’ve ever had the pleasure of drinking. It starts with tender, young organic and fairly traded green tea leaves — hand rolled into small pellets resembling gunpowder and producing a very subtle smoky base. It’s then rounded with the soft floral notes of pink rosebuds, creamy Indian vanilla bean and the alluring fragrance of cardamom. Deeply restorative, this blend gives you a gentle pick-me-up any time of day. Trust us, Guns & Roses is unlike any other tea you’ve ever tasted.
This herbal blend combines the soft, lush red fruit flavor of strawberries with mellow, simply sweet notes of rooibos and honeybush tea — both naturally caffeine free and high in antioxidants and trace minerals. Calming chamomile and honeysuckle flowers further enhance the tea’s light, luscious, almost creamy body. This choice will remind you of carefree days, and time spent relaxing on a languid summer afternoon eating freshly picked sugared strawberries right out of the bowl.
Adorable, right? These egg salt-n-pepper shakers were made by potter Lisa Bienko of Ocala, Fla. When she was a little girl, Lisa was always playing in the dirt…making mud pies and “borrowing” spoons and pans from her mama’s kitchen as she mastered her craft. Now she’s all grown up but still plays in the mud, often leaving a few handprints around her house. Add a happy touch to your breakfast table with your own set of these funny little shakers which come with their own chicken feet stands. Available in speckled white and robin egg blue.
These one-of-a-kind beauties start with hand-hammered 9mm sterling silver discs, fronted by turquoise jasper bead dangles and then finished with beaded sterling silver ear wires. The earrings flutter just ever so when you wear them, giving off slight sparkle and color. Designer Susan McFall, who owns Crosses and Hearts, is an artist living in Orlando, Fla. and we bonded over a mutual love of Great Danes. With a degree in art, she focuses on jewelry, painting and mixed media, and her most favorite influences come from the beach, a casual lifestyle and working with rustic materials. Maybe you’ve seen Susan’s creations before, as many have been featured in films, TV shows and commercials. With just a touch of Western flair, this dainty jewelry would be a nice touch to your own Boho country style.
