If you've visited the Pioneer Woman's Mercantile in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, you know just how quaint and beautiful it is. Those lattés? Delicious. However, if you haven't had the chance to make it there quite yet, Ree Drummond has good news for you: you can shop the Merc online!
These are our 10 picks from the Mercantile that we can't stop dreaming about. I'd gladly hand wash all of my dishes and use my imagination if it meant I could have a little more alone time with these beauties.
1. Nut Bowls
Separate ingredients into them; serve nuts in them; use them as ring-catchers or change collectors; or keep your salt and pepper in them, the possibilities are endless. And they're only $4.00 to boot, available in 13 colors.
2. Splatter Dutch Oven
Aside from our obsession with Lodge here at Wide Open Eats, this splatter dutch oven from the Mercantile might convert us. The 4-quart model comes in six colors that are all begging to be kept on your stovetop all the time.
This design is certainly a unique take on the classic opaque versions of dutch ovens and is large enough to handle any one-pot meals you throw at it.
3. Floral Jug + Floral Tumbler Set
It also works as a vase for your countertop and a dang cute one at that.
These enameled floral tumblers pair perfectly with the floral jug above and you need each of the six colors.
Perfect for a night-in with the girls or a backyard summer barbecue, these add a pop of color to every sip you take.
4. The Bandages
That's right - the Mercantile is trove of treasure waiting to be discovered and it goes way beyond kitchen items. These bandages are just about the cutest thing you can keep in your kitchen drawer in case of emergencies.
5. The Jewelry
A simple cuff-bangle bracelet is a subtle nod to your inner thoughts and some solid advice at the Mercantile. There are over 10 styles of this design and each has a design or vibe more witty than the last.
6. The Play Sets
These quaint play sets are so dang cute, we want all of them for ourselves. There's the mighty mixer wooden set, pictured above for only $22.
Then there's the pizza play set, also for $22.
We couldn't forget the garden salad kit ($22) for a wholesome meal with pizza.
And the garden vegetable set for $17 to encourage a healthy fascination with vegetables.
There are even more sets than these available. You have to check them out here.
7. The Salt and Pepper Sets
Sure, you might have a trusty pepper grinder, but sometimes table salt and pepper shakes are a necessity. That's exactly what these themed sets were designed for, like this Marie Antoinette model for $18.
I thought to myself, It would be great if her head came off. Spoiler: Her head comes off, to form a body of salt and a head of pepper, or whatever you prefer.
Or maybe a pair of labrador salt and pepper shakers for $10 is more your speed.
Or maybe you want a larger version so you don't have to refill as often.
This set for $7 is for you, and it turns out that they're the Marlboro Man's fave, too.
8. The Batter Bowl
Batter bowls seem to be a thing of the past when it comes to kitchenware lately, but it's a must-have in our kitchen. The spout alone makes this beautiful, simple bowl worth it.
Priced reasonably at $22, it will blend seamlessly into any kitchen aesthetic you could have in the world and it will save on the mess.
9. The Finger Puppets/Fridge Magnets
Full disclosure, I first found this and spilled coffee on myself from laughing so hard. Ree's choices tickle me pink, but these finger puppets especially take the cake at $6. Especially Hemingway above, fisherman sweater and all.
There are over 25 different kinds, but we have a few favorites, like Sojourner Truth.
Can't forget Davy Crockett, musket included.
Or Sylvia Plath. As a writer, my heart aches for this one.
Fan of superheroes? Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman are all available.
Want a more historical take? Moses has you covered, Ten Commandments in arm.
Or if you want to celebrate strong American history, Rosa Parks is your lady. There are so many more, and they're all hilariously adorable.
10. The Gear
A quality pair of work gloves make all the difference and last ages. Oh, and they're cattle ranch cowboy-approved.
