Areaware-Wall-Clamps

Using existing, vintage style building materials to create something new and shiny is pretty much the basis for every “Homegoods” store on Etsy. There’s a reason for that. Things just aren’t built, or designed, like they used to be. Areaware is taking the carpenter clamps everyone’s seen before and repurposing them for a higher calling–to be shelving. Mount the two cast iron and Beech wood clamps to the wall. Find a piece of wood/mdf/laminate/steel to serve as a shelf. Clamp it down in your new, old, fancy wall brackets. Instant shelf. Those invisible hanging shelves are cool, but these are cooler. Plus, in a pinch, they could technically serve as actual clamps.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
