Small Business Saturday--The Old Try

"Behind every small business, there's a story worth knowing."--Paul Ryan

My husband and I are small business owners and we try to buy as much as we can from locally owned shops or mom & pop internet sites.  I'd like to share one with you today:  The Old Try.  
Micah and Marianna and Little One

They are a couple of Southerners living in Boston who make the most beautiful letter press posters, plus t-shirts and baby wear--all with a Southern accent.  From their website;

"Faulkner said to write what you know. Old Try started that way. By writing and designing Southern things for folks who lived in and out of the South. Things that connect people to a place they go to in their dreams, or a place they could never convince themselves to leave.  
We spent six winters in Boston and then took a sabbatical to have our daughter in North Carolina. Where her mom was born and where her mom was born and where her mom was born. 
Now we're back in Boston, but we carry with us that memory of home. And that’s just what will keep driving us to make things that can take y’all there, whether you’re living in the South or not."


We have one of their posters framed and hanging in our kitchen (not that our kids need constant reminding).

Here are some of my favorites from their website:



and, of course, one for my fellow Aggies!

They're offering a 20% discount with the code FOODONTHETABLE at checkout.  I hope you'll go check out their super-cool website and find something to bring a little Dixie to your home.
