Our large canvas totes are not only great groceries, they're perfect for the beach!


Food + Tools + Paint

Illustrating food puns seemed like a fun way to pass the time on slow days while working in the mill shop for the paint department on a television show - and so The Pepper Mill Shop was born.

Cooking is a passion of mine, as is working in construction and paint in the film business, so I find this to be the perfect combo for me!

What you see here in the shop came from the minds of a small group of friends, my husband and myself.

Whatever you choose from the store, be it a painting, a print, a tote bag, a magnet, a onesie, a tshirt, etc - I sincerely hope it keeps you smiling and laughing for years to come.
