Two Ponds Farm has a new vintage item available; apothecary glasses. These are graduated glasses/beakers that would have originally been used by hospitals or biology or chemistry laboratories. They work well as drinking glasses, beer glasses or a vase! I am not sure how old they are but they were manufactured by the Mercer Glass Works Company in New York City which at the time was based at 17 W 17th street (see current picture from Google maps below). They are still in their original boxes, likely never used! They are solid at almost 1 pound each and measure approximately 7.25 inches high by 3.5 inches in diameter at the top and 3 inches in diameter at the base. Please visit my shop at www.twopondsfarm.etsy.com or contact me for more information. Thanks!
Thank you for visiting my new website. The purpose of this site is to share more information about my online Etsy store (www.twopondsfarm.etsy.com) and the products I sell. I started a new Etsy store just before Thanksgiving 2016. I am focusing on all natural items that are sourced from our land in central Wisconsin. Currently I have a wide variety of pine cones for decorative or crafting needs. I am beginning to make pine cone wreaths and will hopefully add more pine cone crafts in the future. I am also focusing on white birch products. We have made a variety of beautiful wooden tea light and votive holders. We also sell white birch logs that are great for fireplace decor. I am also hoping to expand into more vintage items as well as dried flowers and herbs that I will grow at our farm this summer.
My family and I recently moved from the New York City area to small town Wisconsin. Our move, this website and blog, and our Etsy store is the result of our desire over the past several years to simplify our lives, increase our quality of life, reconnect with nature, and enjoy a more self-sufficient life. I grew up as a country kid in central PA working on my grandfather's fruit farm and as a corn "de-tassler". My background is in biology where my love of nature originated. I used to work as a research scientist and professor and have now transitioned to a part-time stay-at-home mom, self-employed tutor, and small business owner. Thank you for taking the time to check out my site.
