“Evine neighbors were asking for more, and Josh and Brent have answered in a big way,” said Bob Rosenblatt, Chief Executive Officer at Evine. “This holiday season it was a priority for the Company to provide shoppers with entertaining products they can’t find anywhere else, and Beekman 1802 Mercantile items deliver just that – exclusive TV products, uniqueness and delight – with a fun goat twist the Beekman Boys are known for.”
“It’s really important for us to personalize the items sold within our line,” said Josh Kilmer-Purcell, Co-Founder of Beekman 1802. “Designing products that represent who we are individually allows us to connect deeper with our neighbors and give them what they are asking for. We believe that Beekman 1802 Mercantile provides extraordinary pieces that will bring joy to our fellow neighbors this holiday season, all while respecting the Beekman tradition we’ve taken so much care in honoring.”
Inspired after the history of William Beekman – the home’s original occupant, Beekman 1802 Mercantile mirrors his legacy with items that are both practical and one-of-a-kind. To add to the exciting Mercantile story, Josh and Brent only manufactured 1,802 of some of the signature items within the brand. These items include three collectable cookie jars – the Beekman Mansion, Goat and Farm Truck, as well as a Mrs. Goat Christmas Tree Ornament. Beekman 1802 Mercantile will also offer eatable treats that are locally made and not mass produced, including Caramel Apples, cocoa mix with mugs and their most-Beekman item, Goat Poop, tiny chocolate morsels inspired by the goats that started it all.
“Josh and I came up with the idea while taking a walk through our pasture,” said Brent Ridge, Co-Founder of Beekman 1802. “We were searching for our next hit product, and realized that goat poop had been right under our nose the whole time.”
