Sea & Grass
Pam (the founder) spent many years living in Thailand. During her visits, she became acquainted with a well-known way of life amongst the villagers — their skill and knowledge of seagrass. In an effort to provide work, she decided to collaborate with local artisans with their expertise in hand weaving to bring you beautifully crafted, natural handbags.
These bags represent a piece of Thai culture, the hardworking women who make them, and her memories of the years she spent living there.
Your purchases help contribute to the education of children in need, along with providing an essential income to the women in these villages.
Sea & Grass has kindly given us a code to share with you: Use the code WELCOME for 10% off your first purchase on full price items. Visit Sea & grass website to shop!
1 in 6 Snacks
1 in 6 Snacks represents the 1 in 6 people in America that do not know where their next meal will come from. In order to combat that statistic, they donate a portion from each sale to the food bank.

The General’s Hot Sauce
Inspired by a close friend who actually serves as a general in the military and loves to make wings for his friends and family (and shall remain anonymous until the end of time—we’ll never tell), the company launched with a simple mission:
- Honor The General by producing the highest quality American-made, all-natural, small-batch hot sauce possible, using the very best ingredients and process, and borrowing tactics from the bourbon and wine industries.
- Support the American farmer by growing all our peppers in the U.S.
- Serve the greater good by creating jobs for veterans, and by donating a meaningful percentage of our profits back to organizations that support our troops, veterans, and their families
- Build an honorable company that we can all be proud of, and have as much fun as humanly possible as we do it
This holiday season we encourage you to shop small, shop local, and support brands that strive to make a difference in the world.
Happy Holiday Season!
