Welcome to Heritage Home

Welcome to Heritage Home.  I'm so pleased to finally be sharing the creation of an online shopping experience with all of you here.  What began as an idea to sell one particular item has led to a merchandising division of Good Things by David, with several products that I love having in my home.  This extension of the blog is not something I had even entertained a year ago, but since then, the concept has taken on new dimensions and I couldn't be more delighted with the results.  I feel like all of this has grown organically for me, and the timing to be entering the arena of retail couldn't be any better.

The brand 'Heritage Home' came through weeks of brainstorming and working closely with a superb graphic designer (more on her later) to capture what I was aiming for.  Home is comfort.  Home is what we're all drawn to.  The notion of 'Heritage' rings true for me and every one of you.  

Several months ago I wrote a post entitled 'From Generation to Generation' which resonated with many of you.  The post dealt with how I felt about learning, creating and sharing through the generations.  This was the concept I wanted to capture and work with for my store.  

When you visit Heritage Home and browse through the selected merchandise and through the sections of the website, you will understand what I am talking about.  The excerpt below is taken from Heritage Home.

Heritage Home was created as a source for unique home products.  
I've been collecting contemporary, antique and vintage housewares for a number of years, some of which have been showcased on Good Things by David.  My wonderful copper cookie cutter collection has brought me and my family a lot of joy over the years.  These unique cutters are meant to be cherished through the generations.  
It gives me great pleasure to bring to you a new era in collecting for today's home.  One-of-a-kind cutters designed by me and made by talented American coppersmiths will cover the seasons of the year, as well as special occasions and milestones.  With creative designs and freshly updated decorating ideas, I will make it easy for each and every one of you to produce the best cookies for your loved ones using American-made cookie cutters.  The designs & groups of cutters you see here are exclusive to Heritage Home.  
Several other products for the home inspired by my very own collections are introduced in a new light for a contemporary sensibility.  Items which make my life easier, nicer and more enjoyable are all hand-selected for each & every one of you. 
I want to bring you the quality & standard of living you've come to expect from Good Things by David directly to your door.  Quality has always been important to me and it is my intent to provide you with items that I love.  My hope is that you make these unique products a part of your home.  

Let me personally thank every single family member, friend and committed reader for the support and undying enthusiasm you have shown throughout this process.  The synergy of my blog and its merchandising division wouldn't be possible without it.

I also want to thank my business associates (please visit my good friend, Janet's online store, Oui Sugar!), blogging colleagues and the several artisans, artists & craftsman who have made this vision of mine possible.  I hope to be creating and sharing these wonderful "Good Things" for years to come.

Antique Salt Cellars

There was a time when salt cellars played an important role on the dining table for the host or hostess.  As a result of it being such an expensive commodity several hundred years ago, salt was seen as a luxury and it was the well to do that made salt cellars quite fashionable & a status symbol for the home.  A single salt cellar usually sat at the head of the table and was passed around throughout the meal.  The closer one sat to the salt cellar, the more important one was deemed by the head of the household.  Smaller cellars that were more accessible and with an open top became a part of Victorian table settings.  Fast forward to the 20th century when salt was no longer a luxury and when anti caking agents were added to make salt free-flowing, and one begins to see salt cellars fall out of fashion.  Luckily for the collector and for those of us who like to set a table with Good Things , this can prove to be a boon. Salt cellars for the table come in silver, porcelain, cut glass

Collecting Jadeite

With its origins dating back to the 1930s, jadeite glassware began its mass production through the McKee Glass Co. in Pennsylvania. Their introduction of the Skokie green & Jade kitchenware lines ushered in our fascination with this jade color.  Glassmakers catered jadeite to the American public as an inexpensive alternative to earthenware soon after the Depression, both for the home and for its use in restaurants.  The Jeanette Glass Company and Anchor Hocking introduced their own patterns and styles, which for many collectors, produced some of the most sought after pieces.  Companies marketed this beautiful glass under the monikers of jadite , jadeite , jade glass , jad-ite , jade-ite , so however you want to spell it, let it draw you in for a closer look.  If you want a thorough history of the origins of jadeite, collectors’ pricing, patterns & shapes (don’t forget the reproductions in 2000), I highly suggest picking up the book by Joe Keller & David Ross called, Jadei

A Tour of Turkey Hill with Martha Stewart and Friends

Martha Stewart led an intimate tour of her former Westport, Connecticut home and gardens for a few of my friends this past weekend.  From the photographs I've seen of that special day, it was an experience that will be remembered for a lifetime by those who were in attendance.  As much as I regret not going to this momentous occasion, my friends were kind enough to allow me to share their amazing photographs here on the blog. Let's take a tour of Turkey Hill with Martha Stewart and a few of my friends. Without the kindness of Jeffrey Reed, Dennis Landon, Darrin David, Anthony Picozzi and Colin Eastland, this post would not be possible.  It must also be stated that the fundraising event was graciously hosted by the current owners of Turkey Hill, the Bergs. Many thanks to the Berg family for opening up the property. Turkey Hill is the Federal style home that was purchased, renovated and landscaped by Martha Stewart and her then husband, Andy, back in 1970.  It was he
