Summer in the City

Hot times, folks. It's summer in the city.

To welcome the warming weather (although most of us around the U.S. have gotten a reprieve this week), our July subscription batch from Nashville included five great items to help you enjoy summer in your city.

A set of iconic coasters from Anderson Design Group
Using the critically-acclaimed Spirit of Nashville Collection—a series of illustrated prints and gifts designed in the tradition of the "Golden Age of Poster Art"—Anderson Design Group has now created coasters. This series has won countless awards and has acheived international recognition.

A jar of Bathtub Gin spread
Bathtub Gin is an artisanal fruit spread business born from two sisters' passion for homemade jam, handcrafted cocktails and a love of all things related to the 1920s and 30s. Bathtub Gin uses organic ingredients, chooses locally grown produce whenever possible and firmly believes that using the highest quality fruits and liquors available creates the absolute best tasting fruit spreads.

Iced coffee blend from Bongo Java
Bongo Java has been brewing coffee in Nashville since 1993. They support communities by expanding the definition of quality to include how stuff is produced, purchased and served. They buy as much organically produced foods and coffee from regional producers as is practical and 100% of their coffee is organic, bought almost directly from small-scale producers.

Bag of peanut brittle from Brittle Brothers
Nashville’s own Brittle Brothers has taken Great Grandma Spalding’s old fashioned recipe from the 1840’s and perfected it into a most delicious peanut brittle, cashew brittle and pecan brittle. It is truly a Nashville treasure, but Brittle Brothers is spreading across the country.

Decorative paper straw set from Hester & Cook
When Angie Hester met Robbie Cook, neither knew their relationship would lead to marriage and a business partnership. Eight years into their business, Hester & Cook Design Group is a leader in the gift industry, and their brands Kitchen Papers and CAKE Vintage Table & Home can be found at fine retailers. A portion of all sales benefit the Wonderful Life Foundation.
