American Small Business is Thriving
Cottage Craft Works finds a market niche with back-to-basics sustainable living lifestyle products. It’s a refreshing step back into time to find things still being made in America using thick metals and quality solid hardwoods without the influence of synthetic plastics and chemical altered processes.
It’s a refreshing step back into time to find things still being made in America using thick metals and quality solid hardwoods without the influence of synthetic plastics and chemical altered processes.
Apparently a growing segment of the population feels the same way. Cottage Craft Works LLC has developed a special niche of high quality self-sufficient products for people wanting to go back to simpler times.
Cottage Craft Works has spent year’s hands on finding and developing reproduction products just like they were made and used before planned obsolescence and imported products was ever discovered.
With a keen eye for simple functional items still being made in America as things were made in the early 1900s, this unique back-to-basics online store is striking a chord with fans and customers looking for heirloom quality long lasting products.
Paul Stevens Co-Owner of Cottage Craft Works LLC describes the drive for simple American Heritage products much like the buildup before Y2K, but more unorganized. “It’s not something that is in mainstream media like Y2K was but it is the buzz on the online forums and the talk at the local coffee shops and even discussed around dinner tables of some of the most elite and rich people in the world,” says Stevens.
“It’s just a combination of factors coming out from a weak economy followed by political/corporate scandals, finding so many issues with the environment, imported products, and the loss of American jobs. It has just left so many American families in a state of uncertainty and a lack of trust,” says Stevens.
“One common theme that is coming out loud and clear is the support for simple old fashioned quality products being made in small American businesses. People want that personal one on one connection where the owner who still touches the products they make and sell. They also want the assurance that the products being used and the food items being produced are used by the business owner families themselves,” says Stevens
“People are also waking up to marketing gimmicks and planned obsolescence where they are willing to now pay a bit more to purchase American products for the long haul rather than looking for the cheapest price,” says Stevens.
The name Cottage Craft Works is actually derived from the many cottage based small businesses they serve.
Cottage Craft Works provides high quality products but they also provide a business stream on the Internet to support so many small business owners and their families, who probably never are able to gain this level of exposure. They go deep into the American back roads to bring to market Amish made and used products that the average person would never know even existed.
Stevens clearly points out that the efforts to find American made products is sometimes difficult and ongoing. Some of the products still have to be imported. The majority, over 90%, of the products on the site are American made. The rest are imported and distributed by Amish shops that have set their own high standards and purity specs for reproduction items such as stainless steel and cast iron cookware. As soon as Cottage Craft Works finds an American made equivalent product they switch it out.
Products can be ordered very custom made from sewing machine cabinets to a stainless steel products.
Sewing machine cabinets, Amish certified organic grains, stainless sink drain boards, hand crank mixers, chicken roller egg nest boxes, buckboard seat benches, hunting calls and gun stocks are just some of the most popular items.
