WS-006  Ceramic Inkpot Writing Set   Everything needed to write letters or keep notes in your journal. This set includes a salt-glazed conical inkwell, a packet of powdered ink sufficient to make 2 ounces of black ink, and a properly cut quill pen made from a domestic turkey feather. Although all 2 ounces of ink can be mixed at one time, unless you are planning on writing a volume or two, we recommend that you mix your ink a tablespoon full or so at a time. This way, the powdered ink will last much longer. A thimble full of ink is sufficient for writing 4 or 5 pages.   $12.00

HH-007  Tallow Candles   The use of tallow or animal fat for making candles goes back several hundred years and is still in use to a small degree today. While many folks have the notion that 100% beeswax candles are the most historically correct, that is not quite true. Homemakers in America began adding small amounts of beeswax to their candles in the late 18th century when beeswax became more available. There were no honey bees in North America prior to the colonization of the eastern seaboard by Europeans. It took the bees more than 100 years to become well enough established to allow a surplus of beeswax to become available to candle makers. Tallow, on the other hand, was available every time a large animal was slaughtered for meat. The best tallow came from oxen, sheep, bear and deer; the worst came from hogs which produced smelly tallow, the candles of which sputtered grease on the tables and gave off thick black soot. Our tallow candles are made using a recipe more than 150 years old and use tallow which has been refined three times. In a candle lantern, these candles will burn at a rate of one inch per hour. Candles are 10 inches long.    $2.00
