What a world. While some things are getting easier, others are more complicated. It's challenging striking a balance in an ever-changing landscape. Emerging or not, we're forever different. One thing we know, we're grateful for who and what we have. Speaking of...
Did you know that if we listen, objects speak? The best ones spark emotion—be it, joy, warmth, sadness, nostalgia, even a cocktail of them all. That makes us think of a phenomenon called conscious consumerism, whereby we vote with our dollars, buying from the companies that speak our language and reflect our values. In doing so, you say, "Yes. Of all the companies, I choose you—you lucky duck!" That's a big responsibility and we don't take it lightly.
What we bring into our lives carries with it the energy from where it was made, from whom, and from what. If we're unconscious, that could mean a handful of invisible "guests". No, thank you. We'll pass.
Please know this, nothing is indestructible. When we pay good money, we often want perfect—and we all know that doesn't exist. Use the things you love, daily—there's no better time than now. Treat them with love and they will work hard for you for a very long time.
Let's have a look at some of the hard-working pieces we think you'll enjoy...

Our Deep Serving Bowl is a magic vessel, great for serving, prepping, gifting, and palming. Yes, it fits beautifully in the palm of your hand, acting as a personal trough for foods you never want to end (think: ramen, pasta, cereal). If you're willing to share, it's also a great veggie side bowl for the table.
You are what you eat (from).
Fast, Cheap, Easy
Good takes time. Good costs money. And good, made in the United States, takes exceptional focus on employee well-being, integrity, and positive impact on our community. None of these are inexpensive. But, this is where we shine. Beginning several days ago, we began running both factories—safely! (Much more on this to come). We've been able to hire back some of those who were laid off, because enough people want good. And we make good. Here's to slowly, but surely, coming through the other side—we know not all are so lucky. And we're grateful.
Crane for the Win
Crane Cookware—make it your main cookware. Buy it once, use it forever. These beautifully designed workhorses ought to be the last pots and pans you purchase (so long as you show them some respect). They play well with all range types. And, clearly with food, as well.
Now you're cooking!
From Ryan, with Love
Our buyer and most-fashionable-guy Ryan, recently made a purchase on our website. Curious, we asked, "how do you decide what to buy, given that you bring in every item we offer?" "I ask myself, what would I use everyday if I bought it today?" #smart. His cart: Serving spoons and tongs, pepper mill, spaghetti scrubber, and pitcher.
If you're vacillating between a mass-market dining table and a forever-one—we understand the allure of the former, but we know the rewards of the latter. Jacob May's Nomad Collection is a clever and classic design that's easily assembled, disassembled, and packed flat. Nomadic, gorgeous, and long-lasting.
