I'm the Co-founder and CEO of The Grommet. We launch undiscovered consumer products. It's also the birthplace of Citizen Commerce. I write about design, cultural anthropology, and start-ups, mostly.

People like this make me want to work even harder

“It was brilliant,” Deborah Chapman said. “I was screaming and flying around the parking lot. It felt like a big break.”

That’s what a recent Grommet creator told a reporter about being notified that her product would be an upcoming Grommet.  How can we NOT work 24-7 when we have people like this we can help?

The product is Crosby & Taylor pewter.  You can see our story about them here.  And you can read the news article about Crosby & Taylor here. It’s a lovely family business doing terrific handcraft.  If you think you know something about pewter, think again.  There are very few real pewter artists left in the US.  Watch the video to learn why.
