The Foundry Home Goods
We're a bunch of humans (and a few sweet pups) dedicated to sourcing simple, useful, and beautiful objects for the home. You can find us in real life at our beloved shop in the Tangletown neighborhood of Minneapolis or right here in the wonderful wilds of the internet.
We believe in beauty in utility, in the powerful magic of creating a sense of place, and keeping our special spaces clean + bright using well-made, thoughtfully designed goods and tools.
We encourage a non-disposable lifestyle and celebrate living with fewer, better things.
We love beeswax candlelight, clear mornings, crisp linens, golden hour light, long dinner parties, short stories, good cocktails, pretty plates, fresh flowers, little vases, big magic, and making a home that is full to the brim with noise and quiet, plants and animals, love and light (and perhaps a few more beautiful cleaning brushes than is technically necessary). We hope that you do too.
Who is The Foundry Family?
You're lucky to catch owner Anna (long blonde hair, occasional crown braid wearer, shop-dog-main-mama) in the shop these days, and when she is here you can find her arranging (and re-arranging) flowers in her favorite giant glass vases. Lillian (wavy brown hair, roommate of occasional-shop-dogs, Detective + Valentine) is the shop manager and all-around Foundry team captain. Mara (long, light brown hair, dark horse master woodcrafter) has the honor of being both youngest AND most-proficient-with-power-tools Foundry family member. Heather (short dark hair, megawatt smile, impeccable cat-eye) is a lover of books to the extent that she named this person Dewey, after the Dewey Decimal System. We'll take Katherine a.k.a. KP (long dark hair, dirt under her manicure) whenever we can get her! When she's not at The Foundry, she's more often than not busy enriching the soil/lives out at Two Pony Gardens. Will (lover of hats, constant listener of podcasts/always rocking headphones) is the delightful zen master of our shipping center—when he's not designing Ruby-centric board games. Dakota (wavy dark hair, cool glasses, penchant for dinosaurs) can also be found making magic in our shipping center or riding his bike to the nearest library to continue his work mapping and preserving indigenous oral histories. Susannah, our wordsmith (long brown hair, habitual postcard writer, lover of all swimming holes) can be found at her computer or busy in her beeyard. And, of course, there's Ruby, the original shopdog who shows us how to balance any(and every)thing on our heads and her protégés, who work all day and party all night.
