Tankards are available

In what will likely be our last production run for the year, we now have tankards available on Etsy.


Just so everyone knows, these tankards are suitable for either hot or cold beverages. We do NOT recommend they be placed in the dishwasher (hand-washing only), and never ever put them in a microwave. Otherwise they're tough as nails and will last for years (decades in some cases) with good care.

The most exciting thing about this current inventory is they were made by Older Daughter. Yes, she'll be taking over most or all of the business in the upcoming years. She spent the summer apprenticing with Don, learning the tools, and this batch is her creation.


But because we have so much uncertainty in our near future -- we may have sold our homestead, or we may not (long story) -- we don't know if we'll overwinter here or if we'll be in a rental for the winter. This is why this will likely be the last production run of tankards until spring.

So if you're interested in a piece as a Christmas present, now is the time to snap it up. Everything we have is on the Etsy page. Once they're gone, they're gone. Check it out!

  1. How very cool that the family business gets to be passed down.

  2. While I think these are beautiful, this is a monetarily difficult time for our country and wish that most will consider their finances before purchase.

    1. Huh? If you can't afford it, don't buy it. If you think the tankards are beautiful (and they are), and you can afford them, buy one!

    2. You sure are a RUDE cityhomemaker to post such a Liberal remark. Stay in your OWN Lane.

  3. Ah so that is what older daughter has been doing. Her work looks great but I would expect nothing less with her teacher!

  4. Did the Nanny position in Seattle not pan out?

    1. Seattle is too dangerous right now. Older Daughter has spent the last few months positioning several income-earning irons in the fire, as we like to say. She'll be off on another adventure in the next month or two.

  5. Are the tankards safe for warm or hot liquids?

    1. Yes to both. And thank you for the reminder -- I've updated the post to indicate they're suitable for hot or cold beverages.
