welcome to hausmittel! we have alot of stuff to sell (because frau ericsen has a bit of a thrifting addiction) and are trying to post items as fast as we can (since frau dedel can get kind of wrapped up in the photo shoots, this is taking a little longer than we'd hoped.) please check back frequently to see what new items we've posted.

we met recently at at our other job, working at the best restaurant in the world in oakland CA. we soon realized we had alot in common, and are still not quite convinced that we haven't married the same person (have we seen alvaro & stefan in the same room together yet? i think not...) rachel spends her days off from the restaurant scouring the bay area for all kinds of vintage kitchen and household goodies, while penny spends her days off photographing and measuring and posting these goodies for you to purchase.

the name hausmittel came about because penny is taking german lessons, and has lots of schnik schnak of her own from her german grandparents. rachel just likes the word "haus" so we tried to find a good german word using "haus" that would be appropriate for our store. hasumittel means "household remedy" - perhaps more in terms of potions and health remedies as penny's german husband claims (well, he should know, being german and all) but we like to think of our hausmittel as a remedy for your house or kitchen. something to brighten things up. something that makes you want to cook with it (frau dedel was just lamenting the fact that there wasn't enough time today to bake a cake so she could use the vintage cake slicer on it.) a remedy for your situation, whatever it may be.

we also want to tell you that the runner up name was "hausgimpel." while it sounds super cool, it means "house finch" which sadly doesn't have anything to do with what we're selling here.

please let us know if there's something you're looking for that you don't see here. rachel is extremely organized and has managed to cram an awful lot of stuff into the extra room in her cute little victorian house on brush street, so we just might have that particular hausmittel you've been searching for.
