They make some awesome cast iron pots and pans in Tennessee. They're seasoned well and durable as anything: you can hit the thick pots with your car and not break them. Cooking on cast iron rocks because you can't scratch teflon and ruin it like a normal pan. Only big downside is that a pan is heavy. It's a workout to lift a full cast iron soup pot.


Let's be real: etsy is no longer a real curated marketplace. Lots of foreign mass produced stuff is now on there. But if you're careful and read some reviews you'll find some gems. There are skilled artisans making furniture and other cool things on there out of glass, metal, wood, and more. One of the best places to look for a unique gift idea if you plan ahead and realize you're not usually going to get 2 day shipping like on Big retailers.


I love Jeff, he makes awesome YouTube videos with exercise and health safety info. They sell some tasty nutritional supplement shakes for people who want to get in better shape. Also they sell some workout plans.
Some of their stuff is pricey but this guy worked in pro sports and really knows his stuff. If you want to get into lifting or body weight fitness go here and try one of the plans.


They make a lot of great simulation style games. Hearts of Iron and Stellaris are my favorites but they have some other amazing ones too. They're open ended sandboxes with no real goal so you can do any approach or play style. The only real knock on them is their approach to DLCs. They develop their games for a long time which is great, but you better be getting the extra DLCs (sometimes a bit too pricey) to take the most advantage of the games.


Living in a big city makes it harder to get to a fresh quality market. The best way to get natural grass fed meat that I've found so far is to have them send it to me. It's always been frozen and packed well with dry ice. I like to mix up my orders with beef and chicken one month then beef and pork the next. I also toss a few extra burgers in there. That's basically all I have in my freezer. One time I did need customer service and they took a few days to get back to me. They eventually resolved the problem to my satisfaction but I do wish they were a little faster with that.


They have a collection of good furniture, though the actual great quality stuff is quite pricey. The real problem is the delivery. They hire bottom of the barrel delivery firms to bring the couch or dresser to your house and more often than not can have some big problems. Once I paid for indoor delivery and they left my sofa on the curb next to garbage. Ugh, that was so frustrating. I'd begrudgingly use them again but it's a risk either way.


They sell lots of modern hipsterish plastic glasses. I buy a few different colors so I mix up the colors and styles with different outfits. Good quality and they deliver in a strong cardboard box. I wish they had a few more traditional metal styles, but they have a good mix of the trendy stuff. As a bonus they give away free glasses to charity with purchases which is something I'd like to see more of in corporate America.
