This antique-style pepper mill, with a hand made solid wood base, has a cast-metal grinding mechanism that is not only incredibly eye-catching, but is also adjustable, allowing you to set your preferred coarseness. This mill is not only durable and lasting but is also a beautiful addition to any kitchen. You can use this mill to grind other spices, such as cardamon, cinnamon and nutmeg (please, don't use on salt — it'll ruin the metal!).
The wood base comes in two options: Black Walnut (dark wood) or Maple (light wood). There will be a slight variance in grain pattern of the wood as they are all one of a kind pieces. Each mill measures between 9 3/4 - 10 1/2 inches tall.
Founded by Jonathan Glowacki and Katelyn Kollinzas, Turning Time takes advantage of Portland, Oregon's beautiful wooded surroundings, sourcing lumber that is gathered locally, in a sustainably responsible manner. Each and every piece is a labor of love which is afforded delicate attention throughout the entire process, and is reflected in the end result.
"Call it what you want – PDX, P-town, Stumptown, City of Roses, Bridge City or Beervana – Portland positively rocks. It’s a city with a vibrant downtown, pretty residential neighborhoods, ultragreen ambitions and zany characters. Here liberal idealists outnumber conservative stogies, Gortex jackets are acceptable in fine restaurants and everyone supports countless brewpubs, coffeehouses, knitting circles, lesbian potlucks and book clubs. Portland is an up-and-coming destination that has finally found itself, and an appealing, can’t-miss stop on your adventures in the Pacific Northwest." - Lonely Planet
Shopping local is more than a trend — it is the future of a sustainable economy. Studies show that when you purchase products from small local businesses, 68% of the profits go back into that business' local economy, creating more jobs, opportunity and growth. However, when you purchase items from a larger company, only 43% of the profits go back into the community — the rest is wasted on the bloat accrued by such a large entity and, ultimately, into the pockets of shareholders. Where would you rather put your dollars?
