About Us

Our focus is on quality and buying local. Most cookware stores are about volume and utility. But we’re about finding beautiful table linens, antique pieces, unique pieces –
we’re not just about cooking, but also about entertaining."
– Karen Shernan

They strive to be a resource that supports local residents, merchants, and artisans, while committed to serving absolute top quality and authentic products.
