I had several requests for more Wrendale mugs and other things and received another order.
If you made a request, I have already telephoned you to let you know what I got for you.
And if you love these items, don’t dawdle, within a week of the last order, most of it was gone. And that was in the doldrums of January!
With the green movement taking a stronger hold, many people are trying to reduce packaging and then storing in glass jars. We are selling the Glass Spice Jars. These are perfect for grains and cereals, as the lid has a tight fit and then is easily pulled open.
Just remember not to pickup the jar by the lid. The seal is not strong enough to carry all the weight in the jar. This is a two handed effort. I can remember a customer lifting a jar of silver dragees by the lid. The seal held long enough to get past the counter, then let go. The jar fell and broke on the floor and we were chasing silver dragees for months.
Silver dragees are those hard little silver balls used in cake decorating on wedding cakes and sometimes Christmas cakes.

P.S. I thought doldrums was spelled dulldrums, as in dull drums. Google says:
“The “doldrums” is a popular nautical term that refers to the belt around the Earth near the equator where sailing ships sometimes get stuck on windless waters. …”
It is also “a state or period of inactivity, stagnation, or depression”. This is what I mean – when nothing much is happening and you are waiting for…anything. I have had a few days like this, then all hell breaks out. There is always that person who acts up or thinks up something exciting to do and doldrums are forgotten as we rush around.
