For months... even before opening this store, I wanted to carry custom mugs.
My little book of big ideas had numerous renditions of possible mug designs. Mug designs that I drew while still living in Chatham and thinking my future store would be called "Fleaing Poppies". Fleaing because of all the flea market possibilities and poppies because they are my favorite flower.
Well, it was time to narrow the design down. I didn't want the frame to be overwhelmed with lettering or images. Something that was simple was what was needed. I like to think I am pretty simple and so too are my design aesthetics.
What I eventually came up with (after asking all my friends and family members their opinions) was a classic W. for Warkworth and 1857 the year Percy Mills became established/incorporated as the Village of Warkworth.
Honouring Warkworth on the mug only made sense. There has never been another place that I enjoy more to go outside with a morning coffee, a hot cuppa tea in the evening or a hot cocoa at the outdoor fireplace over looking the magical Trent Hills. If you follow on Instagram, you would notice that my feed is filled with mugs and sunsets. Hardly ever a sunrise... that's what sleeping if for!
So with no further ado...
Each mug is a ceramic take on the iconic tin campfire mugs. All are finished in white with a black band and grey speckling. Mugs hold 12fl.oz
W.1857 mugs are available for $12/ea or for an amazing deal, 4 for $40!!
