Hi everyone!

Most of you know that we  have co-habitated for a few years now, so we don’t need a lot in the way of basic homewares for our wedding.  If you’d like to give a gift, we will love it, but it is by no means required.  We would like to upgrade/update some of what we have, so we’ve made a few wishlists on the usual registry sites, and have a list below of “We can never have too many _______” items, most of which are best found in second-hand stores or hardware stores or antique shops.

We are registered with the following stores and sites:

  • Amazon (online only; for odds and ends, cookbooks, etc)
  • Fishs Eddy (online only; this is where we’ve found our plates)
  • Crate and Barrel (online/in-store; modern basics –  a few things for the home)
  • Williams-Sonoma (online/in-store; for kitchen gadgets, knives, etc.)
  • Target (online/in-store; linens, towels, etc)
  • [this is a cool site that allows us to register at any online store that doesn’t have a registry service, which for us includes IKEA, Anthropologie (bowls!), and Etsy! Since we don’t have a Macy’s registry, we are also using this for anything at Macy’s we like, such as cookware, which we actually need!  We also found a flatware pattern we love, but it’s only available through a restaurant supply store, so it’s added here.]

We can never have too many:

  • pieces of Graniteware or Enamel Ware (Ginger collects this stuff and LOVES it!)
  • vintage tablecloths
  • canning jars and lids
  • old picture frames
  • soy- or bees-wax candles (all sizes and colors)
  • vintage hand-me-downs, like bar glass sets or a punchbowl (we love heirlooms!)
  • more to come, as we think of them!

Thank you for helping us celebrate our marriage and create a home!
