The Beekman 1802 Annex is now open for business!
Josh’s grandfather (pictured above) used to own a small grocery in nearby Coxsackie, NY, so an eye for the essential (and the elaborate) runs in the family.
In 1802, William Beekman, one of upstate New York’s most successful merchants, built the residence and farm we now call home. It cost a then princely sum of $10,000. He built his fortune by offering only the best products in the Mercantile that bore his name.
Our company, Beekman 1802, was homegrown from our farm in upstate NY and founded on the simple idea of seasonal living—appreciating and making the most of each season as it rolls around. As we started designing products, we were careful that our items were as useful as they were beautiful and that the craftsmanship—often done within a few mile radius of our farm in upstate New York—would result in a product of heirloom quality—to be passed down from one generation to the next.
At beekman1802.com and at the original Beekman 1802 Mercantile in Sharon Springs, NY, we focus on those items that we design and produce ourselves, but the world is full of useful items that we use but don’t have the time or the skill to create (Not even Brent can do everything!)
This is why Beekman 1802 is partnering with Open Sky to open The Annex. (sign up now and get a $10 coupon, click here)
The Beekman 1802 Annex on OpenSky will be stocked with the very best items for your pantry, home, garden and every part of your body, each item chosen to help you make the most of each season. We will search out these items and we’ll even try to get you a good deal on them). We promise to come up with at least one new item to add to The Annex each and every week.
We’ll be paying close attention to the type of products you like, and we’ll find more of them! Additionally, if you’ve discovered an item that you think should occupy our virtual shelves, drop us a note at Beekman1802Annex@opensky.com. If you like it, we bet other people will, too.
We hope to use The Annex as a platform to help launch and grow other small, artisanal businesses around the country, and you can help!!
If you are at a farmer’s market, walking through etsy or staring longingly at something at a craft show or even a fancy boutique, take a picture and send it to us along with any info about the product you can find. Help other people making great things find a market for their wares. We want our store to be YOUR store. We trust you.
