Flotsam+Fork says farewell to a favorite
The only way to describe this news is "devastating". We just learned from our distributor that they are discontinuing the iconic multi-colored product line of Therias & L'econome kitchen utensils.
Fortunately, we still have a few L'econome products in stock, so you can still get your hands on some of these fantastic products from one of our all-time favorite French cutlery makers. Sadly, there aren't many left.
So don't miss this chance to own one of the final Therias & L'econome items—with the classic three umbrella logo—Flotsam+Fork ever sells.
22 days, 2 countries, 3 high speed trains, 5 cities, approximately two dozen liters of natural wine & one fierce Mediterranean sunburn later, and the Flotsam+Fork European Sourcing Sabbatical of 2017 is officially over.
It'd be lying to say we're totally happy to be back in states—but we discovered some exceptional new products, and we're excited to share our findings over the coming weeks and months.
In the meantime, the shop is back online and F+F is once again shipping orders. Please take a look at some of our fav memories from the trip and stay tuned for new product arrivals!
La Buvette is absolutely the best place in the world to drink wine right now & please do not even try to convince us otherwise.
After approximately 10 hours à la plage, we fortuitously stumbled upon the straw basket queen of Nice. A truly special retailer hidden among the knick-knack and postcard dealers.
No trip to Paris is complete without a pilgrimage to the temple of kitchenwares, E.Dehillerin.
France truly is the land of knives.
If you ever find yourself in Amsterdam on an unseasonably warm day, we highly recommend enjoying a few radlers at Cafe Brecht.
Attention! Temporary Shop Closure. Return in July!
Flotsam + Fork is heading to Europe on a multi-week product discovery and sourcing tour this summer. While we're away, between May 23 and July 6, we won't be able to process or ship any orders. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this might cause.
If you have questions, please send a message to info [at] flotsamandfork.com
