Handcrafted whisk broom, made in Vermont.

About the maker:

A maker since her youth, Mary creates beautiful, hardworking functional tools utilizing materials from our landscape that reflect the history from which they stem, while gathering a deeper understanding of that traditional knowledge and the materials used along the way. Function, form, and tradition play equal parts in her work, which is informed by the seasons. Salt and Spruce starts with land based traditions - what materials to use, when to collect them, how to process them. The use and need behind the design of each basket or broom. The history it comes from, and the reason for its development. Even the techniques are storied and thoughtful: Stitches and methods and ways passed down from maker to maker. Traditional knowledge rooted in the landscape and born of necessity, passion and ingenuity. A single mom, Mary and her kiddo live in a gorgeous old barn-to-home conversion, along with a farm consisting of a cat, a rabbit, and a sheep.

Covid Updates: Local Delivery + Nationwide Shipping

On March 15, we closed our bricks + mortar doors temporarily and went entirely online. We're charting a new path forward, and we greatly appreciate your support. 

First, we want to offer a little comfort. Amongst the stress, sadness, and uncertainty, we're also learning. Two of those lessons that we hope sink in are the importance of CONNECTING with our loved ones and of supporting SMALL BUSINESS. We all need each other more than ever before right now. And by acknowledging that interdependence, know you can help others get through this. 

Some might see us as just a "gift shop" - but others know the amount of work that happens behind the scenes. We are driven to stay in business to continue to lift up American Made. While we also have community projects going on, we will continue to keep our train on the track, and we can't keep choo-chooing without your support. 


Thank you to everyone supporting us through these uncertain times, and we hope that we'll be able to help you spread some happiness.
