Description

In the first pages of A Moveable Feast, Ernest Hemingway's memoir of his time living in Paris, is printed one of the most beautiful literary passages ever written on the experience of enjoying oysters:

"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans."

We partnered with Janice Reyes of Handmade Letters to interpret this evocative passage, and screen printed it on hand towels to be used in the kitchen, as napkins at the dining table, as hand protection when shucking your own oysters, a literary stocking stuffer, or even as gift wrap.

Enjoy this towel yourself, or give it to a friend. Be happy. Make plans.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
All major credit cards accepted.

For custom orders, you will receive an artwork proof to confirm before your order is placed. It is the buyer's responsibility to carefully check all spelling / placement / etc. of the custom order. Once the order has been placed, returns are not accepted on custom orders.

Returns & exchanges

We make every effort to ensure your products arrive to you in the same condition that they left our store. We'd be damned if our mallets, muddlers and oyster knives couldn't stand up to a little rough handling by the postman, as they're designed to withstand years of crackin' skulls (and by skulls, we mean shells and/or mint leaves).

That said, in the unlikely event that your order arrives damaged, or is not to your satisfaction, please send us a note through the Etsy messenger or at info@brinehound.com before contacting Etsy or leaving a review so that we have the chance to make things right.

Shipping policies

Estimated 1-2 weeks from order to shipping, with expedited services available.

Additional policies

Custom orders are available for all products. We can take virtually any idea, message or image and translate it to fit on our small surface areas. Just try to stump us!

Send us a message with your ideas (including any image, colors and font styles that you'd like to incorporate) and we'll try our hardest to accommodate your needs.

-------------------

Wholesale orders for large events, weddings, businesses and the like are also available, though not through our Etsy shop at this time. Send us a message at info@brinehound.com to discuss details and pricing.

-------------------
While our Brine Hound shop showcases some of our most beloved products available, this is really just the beginning of what we can custom create for you. If you need custom t-shirts, napkins, tote bags, patches, or virtually anything else engraved, embroidered or screen printed, please reach out and we'd be happy to help!
