North Carolina oozes old Southern charm from its Atlantic shores to the Blue Ridge Mountains. With a rich history in tobacco and textiles, we tried to capture is springtime essence.
Our offerings this month come from shops in both its biggest cities and its small Appalachian towns. We’re excited to give you a little taste of what “the land of the sky” has to offer.
Poppy Popcorn is a lovely locally-owned business in Asheville, NC. Their delightful homemade popcorns are treats to satisfy even those with a strong sweet tooth. With natural ingredients, you won’t see GMO-modified or high fructose corn syrup in these recipes.
Even if you’re a vegan, dairy- or gluten-free, Poppy Popcorn has something for everyone. The more adventurous snackers can choose from a multitude of options: candied flavors like the “Asheville Mix” (white cheddar and salted caramel), their savory “Sriracha,” or the “Spicy Buffalo.” As for us, we can’t say no to the classic, “Salt & Butter.”
Southern Elegance Candle Company captures the smells of the South – from tobacco and vanilla, apples and bourbon, to Savannah peach nectar – all in small-batch handcrafted soy wax candles. We love their wide selection.
This sage and sweetgrass-scented candle is inspired by the storied history of Charlotte and the Native Americans who originally called the area home. The burning of sage and sweetgrass has long been an important part of Native American rituals for cleansing and driving out negative energy. In a similar way, this candle is sure to help you feel relaxed and revitalized.
Salem Baking Co. has been making Moravian cookies since 1930, but these crispy, spice-filled cookies date all the way back to the 18th century. The original flavors, “Ginger Spice” and “Classic Sugar,” were enjoyed by earlier generations and contained hard-to-come-by ingredients.
Today, the cookies are still made with the same care but are available in many more flavors. We think you’ll love the chocolate version made with melted semisweet chocolate and cocoa powder for that just-right mix of sweetness and crunch.
Your morning routine sets the tone for your whole day. That’s why we’ve added these shower steamers from Klen Shop to our pack this month. Simply splash water onto these steamers to release their aromas. Klen Shop duo Leigh and Allison suggest placing steamers out of the direct spray of the shower head to make them last longer. These rejuvenating steamers are available in three decadent scents – “Detox,” “Happy,” and “Energize.” Your senses are sure to be invigorated!
In the age of email, a handwritten note is a charming and unexpected delight. Send your note on a hand-illustrated greeting card and you will make a fantastic lasting impression. Our pack this month includes just that from Hennel Paper Co., the Charlotte shop of designer and artist Jayme Sloan Hennel. Hennel Paper Co. has options for weddings, birthdays, or that special occasion coming up.
