Brooklyn Slate

From a family quarry in upstate New York and 
then cut and cleaned in their Brooklyn studio
come these wonderful slate cheese boards and
coasters from Brooklyn Slate Co...   Food safe
and packed with a soapstone marker, cushioned
feet and burlap storage bag, they make great gifts!

Jonathon's Spoons

Jonathon made his first spoon when he forgot to
pack one for lunch while working in a wood shop
back in 1978...  Now he handcrafts them in every
shape and size imaginable out of wild cherry wood
in rural Pennsylvania. We love the flame-blackened
ones with sanded edges that reveal the warm cherry
wood, including the design award winning ladle...
these just arrived and they are beautiful!
