If you’ve stopped by the Mercantile, you’ll see Caitlin’s master work in action. She’s Beekman’s Visual Merchandiser who takes Brent’s vision for the store and puts it into action. Caitlin is like 5 other Team Beekman members, a NYC transplant. She also works closely with our makers/artisans on developing pieces for all our Neighbors.
What are your top 5 Beekman products?
Triple Milk Collection: It is my goal to have flawless, glowing skin and this whole skin care line exceeds my expectations in every way! I have fair skin and this line does not irritate it at all. I love knowing that the Triple Milk Peel is getting off all that old dead skin leaving my skin ready to take on the day! And the packaging! I leave it sitting out in my bathroom for all to see. Not only does it work but it looks good too.
Goat Milk Lip Balm in Wondermint and Pure Goat Milk-I have one in every bag and pocket!
Mini Serving Bowls in 14K Gold- I adore these mini serving bowls by Jasmine Crowe. Not only are they great for entertaining at holiday parties, I split them up and set them on my nightstand and kitchen sink for all my rings.
Garlic Olive Oil-My husband and I use this in every dish we cook.
Lavender Creamed Honey- I am usually running around trying to keep up with Brent’s creative design ideas (he has so many!) so at night I need something to wind down. I add a spoonful of lavender honey to my bedtime tea. Also tastes great on english muffins in the morning!
I usually prefer a more masculine or sultry scent. Oak Moss and White Water. And the Fir Forest Candle for holiday. I want my whole house to smell like a Christmas Tree!
What is your favorite packaging?
Our Vegetable Garden Candle labels are super fun and cheery (and they smell great- I love Dirt) For beauty Triple Milk and Vanilla Absolute.
What Beekman gift would you like to gift to someone this year? To whom?
I would love to gift my mom the Hooked Baby Goat Sachets class with Artisan Elizabeth Miller. My mom lives near Pittsburgh so it would be a perfect weekend for her to spend time with me and share this experience. We both then would have our Baby Goat Sachets to take home and remind us of the fun weekend we had together.
What Beekman gift would you like to get this year?
My husband and I just bought a new house so my mind is all about decorating and entertaining. (I can get into a lot of trouble with all of the beautiful artisan and home items at Beekman) If I have to narrow it down, The Gaffer’s Tantalus by Artisan Bobby Sharp or the Family Style Pasta Bowl and Serving Bowl. All timeless pieces that can work into any decor and last for year’s to come.
