Announcement    In the spirit of being a conscious consumer we should all ask ourselves do I need to buy new? Certainly, the answer will sometimes be yes...yet every dollar you spend is a vote, a call for growth and production, an act of support. At a time when we can choose the path we take to the future, ask yourself, what is my dollar supporting?

When buying vintage we always suggest using these pieces as decor, non food storage, or for floral and garden design. It is always best to use modern kitchenware for any food consumption, standards evolve with us and we should maintain them for the health of our community and families. Tuck your vintage on the corner hutch, empty your pockets change in them, add a handful of spring's daffodils and this year's seed stock from the garden, stick that quirky plant pet in some funky ceramic with a retro twist because it makes you smile.

About MettlesomeMeans

Sales 52
On Etsy since 2017

by our own mettlesome means we aim to curate beautiful, eclectic pieces that were made to last lifetimes.

My love for design has been life long, starting as a child watching grandpa widdle away at a block of wood, transforming it into something magical, or my grandmother sewing plum collared corduroy cloaks with satin lining. I have had love and admiration for a well made piece my whole life.

I began my career in floral design and quickly noticed the abandon with which we produce. Despite an abundance of treasures and goods meant to last decades a new trend will arise often lacking quality, mass produced and cheap enough to justify "disposable".

With an affinity for the quirky, old, rustic and the well loved, I began using second hand pieces in my home. I would propagate my plants in an antique glass bottle, Keep my sewing supplies in a ceramic flour canister, coins in a bean pot... all beautiful pieces curated and suited to my atheistic, if cared for properly they will last much longer than my lifetime.

It is my hope that we will take great care of the earth, if not for being our source of life and home, but for our children, and their children after...
