When William Beekman founded his original mercantile in Sharon Springs, NY, in the last half of the 18th century, it served as the “last stop for gas” for the wagon trains leaving the Northeast and heading to the western frontier. Decking the halls was far from a priority of these early American adventurers, but even so, the thrill of opening a simple, brown paper package tied up with the string—even it was only a pair of long-johns or a sewing needle—was still there.

As the mercantile grew larger and was taken over by William’s son Cornelius, the shop carried everything a homemaker could ever dream of—dry goods, tools, paint, furniture…gifts.

Beekman Mercantile was dormant for over a century and a half until we moved into Beekman’s original home and re-invigorated the business.

Today Beekman 1802 designs and produces products that draw from all aspects of the company legacy—from pasture to posh. Central to every item is what we like to call the “heirloom experience”.

Heirlooms have value greater than their monetary worth because they’ve become burnished by memory.

We’ve always been fans of Christopher Radko and Hallmark and how they’ve helped create memories that hang on the Christmas tree. One of our greatest joys each year is inching into the attic crawlspace, pulling out the ornaments (we have over 1000!) and unwrapping them from their tissue paper hiding places revealing every holiday memory we’ve ever shared together. Each one is so much more valuable than the tinsel and glass it took to make it.

We hope you like this peek around the farm at holiday time.

Many of this year’s decorations can be found in the Beekman 1802 Heirloom Holiday Collection at Bed Bath & Beyond. (Available online and in select stores.) Thanks to photographer Seymour Templar for capturing the farm so beautifully.

 

 

 

The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Holiday collection for Bed, Bath, and Beyond will delight you not just by helping you create a beautiful home for the holidays, but by helping you create memories.

And there’s no greater value than that.

 

All the items we decorated the farm with this year are part of the new Beekman 1802 Heirloom Holiday Collection available exclusively at Bed Bath + Beyond. See the collection here.

Our Mercantile is the only place in the world that you can get a First Edition of ‘A Seat at the Table’ that’s autographed by all three of the authors:

Love your home and your tasteful decorating style, oh and You Two Crack Me Up! Loved reading your ‘tips for keeping a relationship intact through the holidays’ ~ good stuff!

It would be amazing if you were to let us know where we can purchase the mini snow-globe light strand. I thought you were selling them but I do not see them on Beekman 1802 or Bed Bath and Beyond sites.

Merry, Happy Christmas and New Year to you two ~ MWAH!

You guys are the greatest, enjoyed watching you once again on Evine..you fill my heart with so much joy, if I’m having a bad day you cheer me up. Love all your products, I have been wanting a Bounty Box and orderded one, can’t wait to get it and yes it’s all mine, Christmas present to me. I wish I can visit your farm,but I live in Saint Augustine Fl and it would be a plane ride, hotel, taxis It would be a bit of cost for me..I’m sure it probably would be worth it thou…I know you mentioned your address on the show, but I didn’t write it down…would love to send a Christmas to you.

Don’t know if you ever look at the comments on your blogs these days, but I have to say (even if you don’t ever see it) that these are wonderful, heartwarming photos. Your BB&B collection is outstanding and looks absolutely perfect in your home. And the photos of Onder are priceless – love her!
