I have been creating a bunch of gift items over at Vintage Seafood, but I think this line of vintage lobster mugs came out the best. I’ve found several 19th century labels from canned Canadian lobster that have a really classic look that would please the fishermen and seafarers on your gift list. I have some more labels saved that I will be adding to the collection this week so go take a look at my shop for some reasonably priced maritime themed gifts. If you like what you see, let me know what you think in the comments.
Happy Holidays Everyone!
Over the last year I have been researching and writing a historic seafood cookbook, which, unfortunately will not be ready in time for Christmas. It is by far the biggest writing project I’ve ever attempted and contains hundreds of recipes going back hundreds of years.
While the book is being finalized, I have also been working on a new website dedicated to seafood information as a tie-in. As part of the research process for the book (From Head to Tale) I have been compiling lots of vintage seafood illustrations and advertisements, which I’ve started to turn into a line of gifts and apparel over at my new store: Vintage Seafood. If you get a chance this busy holiday season, check out my new projects and let me know what you think.
