Herbal Healing Salve
We’re big fans of this country balm/herbal healing salve used to treat dry skin, sunburn, bug bites, blisters, minor scrapes, skin blemishes — even pet boo-boos!
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.

Cooking should be fun — AND fashionable. These striking gourmet aprons are by seamstress Cheryl Hassell of Bath, N.C.
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!

These handmade block prints are the vision of Meg Tannehill Justice, an artist/illustrator who makes her home in Scottsboro, Ala. We discovered Meg’s works during a weekend trip to Mentone, Ala., where her prints are featured in a local gallery. It was love at first sight! We soon got in touch with Meg to learn more about her creations and to see if we could feature some of her works in our Mercantile. A Southerner who has lived and traveled to all parts of the world, Meg graduated from Auburn with a degree in Art and in 2010 returned to Alabama to make her permanent home, which she shares with husband Jerry, a dog named Jack and six hens who provide fresh eggs and comic relief. When asked what inspires her the most, she says, “I’m influenced by all things from nature and strong emotional memories of my past and the countryside where I live. I’m an avid gardener and at my happiest with handfuls of dirt and plants. Nearly all my art is connected to these things in some way. My favorite subjects to draw include animals, plants, mysteries of nature and the stories they tell.”
One of the most exciting moments we’ve had on the farm is when the bees arrived. That set us on a journey that was at once mystical, joyous, sometimes heartbreaking, and just so much fun…despite a few stings here and there. With the help of kind and wise neighbors who showed us the way, our Italian honeybees have been thriving of late and this season we are (to borrow from Eddie Izzard) ‘covered in honey.’ So we’re currently offering a limited batch of raw, wildflower honey here in the Mercantile. Order soon before we run out! We don’t know when we’ll have such a wonderful honey flow again. Available in 8-oz. jars. Made and harvested on the farm.

Our Farm Fresh candles will make your home even more beautiful.
These aromatherapy soy candles smell as fresh as the farmers market…the sharpness of tomato vine combined with sweet coriander + jasmine. Our Farm Fresh fragrance was created by The Rustic House in Chattanooga, Tenn. This women-owned candle company was inspired by a love for simple living and a rustic, yet modern, farmhouse style. Co-founders Emily and Chelsea grew up in Alabama and their childhoods were filled with family reunions around big farmhouse tables, lake days and running wild through the tall grass.
Each luxury spa candle has a 50-hour burn time, braided cotton wick and was hand poured with love.
