“The romance and enchantment of a mercantile store begins when you enter and sniff the deep aroma of many spices, tobacco, and the stove with its burning fragrance so distinct it can dissolve the years off any aging country boy...” — BRUCE D. HEALD Once upon a simpler time, out on the frontier and in the remote American towns slowly established through the blood, sweat, tears, and resilience of individuals with limited means but boundless determination, the mercantile store was the center of the universe. In those sole proprietor outposts, stocked often with more character than inventory, the aroma of spices, tobacco, and coffee blended with sawdust. Shelves were lined with soaps, rifle shells, and nails among other necessities. Under dangling lanterns and ropes, large wooden barrels offered fresh pickles or mincemeat while, towards the back — beside the pot-bellied stove and a corner that served as the local post office — you might find a leather saddle or satchel handmade by a craftsman whose personal reputation could not survive anything less than producing unfaltering excellence and durability in each item. For there in the general mercantile stores that sustained our nation’s earliest years, a man’s word was his bond, credit was secured with a handshake, and a meticulously hand-written ledger documented every transaction, tethering the community together. “We believe in the simple attributes, aesthetics, and functionalities that have already stood the test of time.” — MISSION MERCANTILE

Direct Link: http://www.missionmercantile.com/flask This gentleman’s essential is a timeless gift with historical origins. Flasks were first developed in the late 1800’s, but owe their popularity to the Women’s Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) and the Anti-Saloon League. Both of which, you guessed it, weren’t particularly fond of anything involving alcohol. After successfully lobbying by both parties for Prohibition, and the passing of the Volstead Act, the flask’s popularity skyrocketed as a mechanism of rebellion during Prohibition. Men and women alike utilized it’s clandestine profile to conceal their affection for a little nip every now and then. Necessity. The mother of invention. The best man at your wedding, college football fans, professional poker players, and countless others have since adopted it as a way to transport drinks when the situation requires legal, but more conspicuous means.
