Old Try

Best Made.


We're suckers for honest goods and suckers for buttoned up packaging and when I (Micah) got  a birthday present to myself of some mugs from Best Made we were pleased with them both.

The Concern.



We had dinner a couple of months back with Matt and Melissa of Holler Design. They are furniture makers who have been all over, but now make chairs and tables and the like on their old family farm in Tennessee. They just felt drawn to head back home and to do something from there.

I mean, we're on the same page as Patagonia (one of my former employers), Sid Mashburn(another Ole Miss guy), and the Crimson Tide. What about that won't make a fellow blush as he sips his fair-trade...
