September 13, 2016

Crisp air. Vibrant and golden leaves. Cozy sweaters and stylish boots. Football. Pumpkins. Coffee.

So, c'mon! Let's FALL into a little American Handmade!

There are so many stories you can tell through this delightful product! They are the perfect compliment to any home this fall season! Which design will you choose?
I love the prospect of a career that can move with me and allows for a flexible schedule when Daddy is out to sea on a submarine! - Courtney, Owner

There is nothing more appealing to the eyes than the vibrant colors of autumn, and if you have been searching for a new wall piece to compliment the season around you, there is no company more up to the challenge than The Heritage Flag Co. "From barrel to banner," this company, owned by Heath Trigg, creates stunning American flags out of bourbon barrels. Don't believe us? Stop by our stores in Southern Pines, NC and/or Bethesda, MD to see for yourself -- we hang a Heritage Flag in every retail location!

As The Heritage Flag originated as a Veteran “thank you” gift, they remain committed to supporting the individuals that inspire, sacrifice and protect others in our communities and around the world. - The Heritage Flag Co.




Goetze's Candy, located in Baltimore, MD, has not only spent the last 120 years making sweet treats, but also supporting the local economy by keeping all of their manufacturing right here in the USA! Whether you pop them straight into your mouth or enjoy them using this delicious caramel cream apple pie recipe, we promise their candies are the solution to any sweet tooth craving!

Since the 1940's, our staple product has been Caramel Creams®—a soft, chewy caramel wrapped around a decadent cream center—a tasty, iconic American treat. - Goetze's Candy



These plates, bowls, utensils and cups are the perfect solution to hosting children at your next family fireside gathering! Made from recycled milk jugs, all Re-Play dishware is dishwasher safe and available in various colors! (Did we mention their divided plates are PERFECT for the ultimate s'mores night?)

Each product is designed with early eaters in mind. From divided plates with deep walls, to spill proof sippy cups with our patented No Spill valve, our goal is to make the self-eating process easier and more successful. - Re-Play



Now that the little ones are taken care of... cocktails anyone? Walker Feed Co. is your destination for all natural cocktail mixes. You could visit Nashville to do a little taste testing at one of the many vendor events they participate in OR you can do what we did: visit their Etsy shop online! We highly recommend the Walker's Southern Bloody Mary Mix. Even poured over ice, the Bourbon Barrel Aged Worcestershire, Blackstrap Molasses and Creole Mustard in this libation will keep you toasty all winter long!

{Stash your favorite mix in our large Signature Denim Tote for easy transport}

Using uniquely Southern flavors to concoct a consummate beverage, Walker’s mixers are as good on their own as they are paired with your favorite libation. - Walker Feed Co.


Just like the R. Riveter Limited Edition handbags, Michele's Granola is made - with love - in small batches! But, hold onto your scarves and booties because that's not all! This inspiring company created the Give One For Food program, donates 1% of sales to create a  healthier food system and powers its bakery using wind power! Now, how many campfire treats can you say that about?
Our ingredients are clean, simple and wholesome, and our flavors are traditional yet unique. And our kitchen is full of smiles and laughter. - Michele, Owner



"Reduce. Reuse. Redecorate" is the tagline of this American Made company... and we couldn't agree more! Owner, Ashley, considers herself a "fiberholic" and is known for her fiber based home goods, as well as her clothing and accessories. Her Large Cowl Scarves are a must-have this Fall, and, in granite, pairs perfectly with our NEW Signature Black Otto! Cozy up and cuddle up with Black Sheep Goods this season!
Wear it loose and long or double it up for a cozier look. So soft it feels like baby rabbits cuddling your neck. Just the right amount of wool so you don't get too hot while lookin' hot in this scarf! Perfect staple for any fall or winter outfit. - Ashley, Owner



This company is equal parts "stylish" and "inspiring!" Military Spouse and owner, Nadia, delivers her company's hand-crafted shoes to women in Uganda, Africa who have never owned a single pair. And if bringing smiles to the faces of women on the other side of the world were not reason enough to support Kallie Shoes, then knowing a percentage of all shoe sales are donated to wounded warriors of the Semper Fi Fund. Make a difference in the world AND put your best foot forward this fall? Who can pass up an opportunity like that!?
Try pairing Kallie Shoes with another authentic accessory: The NEW R. Riveter Signature Khaki Doyle! Support the women of Uganda AND Military Spouses at the same time! 
Part of our brand’s identity is to empower other women. At Kallie Shoes, we truly believe in the importance of celebrating other women’s achievements, hard work, dedication to their families, careers, different causes and/or any calling in life. - Nadia, Owner



Live, love & laugh this fall with pure & simple skincare products that are completely natural.  From cleansers and moisturizers to bath crystals and lip balms, there is a personalized solution for every woman. So stock up, drop it all into your R. Riveter Signature Natural Dopp Kit + get ready for a nourishing and adventurous fall season!
I was determined to eliminate the bad stuff from the creams and lotions I use and love so much. For the health of my family, my friends, and others I created Sans Skincare, skincare without the harsh chemicals. Made with essential and pure plant oils, plant butters, and other pure and wonderfully natural ingredients, Sans is healthy. - Renan Kennedy, Founder



Don't worry, boys! We could never forget about you! Afterall, a drop in temperature can mean BIG problems for our guys in the grooming arena. The dry air outside and inside during the fall and winter months can cause red & irritated skin when it's time to shave. Luckily for you, we have found a solution! Introducing: Shaveology! Co-Founders Adam and Kenny are breeding a new generation of gentlemen, while helping our nation's veterans! Be sure to explore their luxury designed & handcrafted products. They are teaching all of us that "old school is still cool!"
