From the website of Blackcreek Mercantile: After years working in the furniture and interiors industry Joshua Vogel created Blackcreek Mercantile & Trading Co. as a way to explore small scale product design and manufacturing, and to reconnect himself with the practice and idea of handmade goods. All of BCM&TCo.'s products are made by people right here in our Kingston, New York studio. . . lovingly, and with care.
