The Good Union

As the need for locally made products increases, so too is the desire to capture the spirit of an older America. At The Good Union, based in Carrollton, Texas, each product is inspired by the blue collar American worker and recaptures the desire and care for quality materials and craftsmanship.  

I can't help but love their hand-letterpress tees that are all individually hand stamped using 1940's vintage wood type blocks. Each one may vary slightly from the next in terms of coloring and spacing...fun. 

As The Good Union crew continues to expand their wares, I'm happy to see these next two items in their collection. The Woodsy hand soap has a clean ourdoorsy smell with a hint of musky wood. I want to try... Then the Industrial Stone Necklace is made from authentic Petoskey stone. See all their fine, American made, manly items here.

The Hinkley Barstool

I have admiration for a good barstool. I spied this one over at Arteriors in Carrollton, Texas. The Hinkley barstool combines wood and iron with a swivel seat and natural wax finish. 

These stools add a modern, sophisticated charm to a space and stand tall at 34.5". 

I just love the look of these handsome beauties lined up one after the other. Barstools to drool over... see many more manly pieces for the home over at the Arteriors site, here.
