Alabama Sawyer’s Not So Secret Diary
We are excited to announce that we’ve recently become affiliated with EastFork Pottery! In honor of our affiliation, let’s talk about some of their amazing products and promotions. Right now they are doing a weekly giveaway on their website, so you should definitely check it out for the chance to win free EastFork Pottery products. I mean, seriously, who doesn’t love free stuff? Now, on to the products themselves.
Imagine this Tender Earth candle sitting on one of our Waverly Tables in Hackberry. The candle’s scent is described as “wet, fresh, and mossy”, which would work great with any biophilic themed interior design scheme.
Another EastFork recommendation comes in the form of their Incense Set, which includes Palo Santo incense and an Incense Burner. Imagine walking into your living room and seeing two of our Stump Side Tables on either side of the couch, each with an incense burner on it. Then you light the incense (but only one because two would be a little strong), and all your guests compliment you on your tasteful smelling incense. But also because you want your house to smell nice.
These next recommendations are more alcohol centered so you can get your booze on in style. Imagine picking up an EastFork Pottery Brass Bottle Opener to open your favorite bottle of rosé, which is elegantly displayed in our White Oak Ice Bucket. You then pour yourself a glass in an EastFork Recycled Moroccan Glass. Is it normal to drink wine out of a non wine glass? Probably not, but for only $9, what are you waiting for?
Well, there you have it. I went ahead and entered the EastFork Pottery contest, and would strongly recommend you enter it as well.

The name “Pecan” is a Native American word that was used to describe nuts requiring a stone to crack. It is a species of Hickory, native to Mexico and the Southern United States. Pecans are not actually considered a nut, but instead are a fruit surrounded by a husk with a stone pit in the center, which is the part you eat. The state tree of Texas, it can live to be anywhere between 300 - 1000 years old. See some of our Pecan pieces below:
