New Makers This September

Folks, we’ve officially crossed the sixty maker mark… that’s right: Threefold Gifts now carries handmade goods from over sixty American makers. We’re wildly excited to share news that we’re always growing the Threefold Gifts family of makers, and this month is no different. We’ve had three new makers join the shop recently, and we can't wait for you to meet them. Before you shop their wares, learn a bit about the people behind the goods.

These Things

Houston, Texas

These Things aims to bring cute, humorous, and kitschy items into your life. It's run by Amy K Nalley out of her home studio in Houston, TX. Started in Denton, TX in 2010, it didn’t really get going until 2014 when Amy was laid off from her part-time office job. With encouragement and support from her partner she threw everything she had into These Things and has been creating full-time ever since. These Things is now in brick & mortar shops around the US and can be found popping up at various markets and conventions around Texas.

Kerie Johannes

Cleveland, Ohio

Kerie was an artistically driven kid growing up in a suburb of Cleveland. The moment she took her first ceramic class she was in love and couldn't put down the stuff. After receiving a BFA in ceramics and a minor in textiles from Kent State University in 2015, Kerie participated in a year long residency in Cincinnati, Ohio where she explored why she makes pottery and who she makes it for. After moving back to Cleveland she jumped right back into a studio practice by doing a work trade with a local potter, where she still works today.

Brian Giniewski

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

A college ceramics and design professor-turned-full-time maker, Brian Giniewski works out of his Philadelphia pottery studio. There, he creates restrained forms featuring fluid, pastel candy-colored glazes. His labor-intensive approach to glazing and firing is part science and part kiln magic. Each piece is handled dozens of times throughout the making process and is fired up to four times to achieve the viscous, drippy effect.

Legend Headwear

Cleveland, Ohio

Legend was founded in 2017 and is the second generation of a 35-year family baseball cap manufacturing company. Our caps are made from carefully-chosen fabrics that are suitable for any condition - the beach, the bar, on a hiking trail, you name it. We know what it takes to make a quality cap, and we take the utmost pride in creating a quality product that people love and wear over and over. We go the extra mile and add a custom inner lining to cover the embroidery and use real, hand-stamped leather for our patches.

Rocket E3

Cleveland, Ohio

Rocket E3 is run by Scott Hudson and based in Cleveland, Ohio. He likes to make fun T-shirts and hoodies that have a tongue-in-cheek sense of humor, and designs and prints all as a one-guy operation (with some good administrative help from his wife, Karin.) The inspiration for his work comes from his love of Cleveland, the emotional roller coaster of being a Cleveland sports fan, and stuff like classic sci-fi and horror movies, little wind-up metal robots from novelty stores, vintage comic books, and old-school punk rock.
