The craftsmen at Homestead Heritage have been producing a wide variety of heirloom quality, unique items for over 20 years. In the new online store, shoppers will find a collection of some of their most popular shippable products. Each item is made one at a time by hand using natural materials and fibers. The craftsmen carefully fashion each piece, using predominately hand tools and time-tested methods of construction. This combination results in unique, high quality items, many of which are truly one of a kind. The store selection is expected to expand regularly.
Features include a variety of hand-forged pieces from Heritage Forge Blacksmith Shop including copper/brass/stainless colonial serving utensils as well as wrought iron lamps, quilt racks and fireplace tools. Also featured are hand-thrown stoneware selections from the Potter's House in two of their most popular custom glaze patterns - Desert Tones and Homestead Green.
Proceeds from sales go to support the Ploughshare Institute of Sustainable Culture, a non-profit organization whose goal is to train students in skills necessary for sustainable living. The student's work is occasionally available in the showroom.
When in central Texas, visit the Homestead Heritage Craft Village where all of these goods and more can be seen at The Barn Gift Shop, open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Visitors can also tour the working shops of the village - The Potter's House, Heritage Forge Blacksmith Shop, Heritage Furniture and Heritage Fiber Crafts as well as the campus of Ploughshare Institute of Sustainable Culture.
