Hello there! We are a husband and wife team based just outside of Ann Arbor, Michigan creating handmade rustic and industrial home, bar and office accessories. It all started a little over a year ago, when Dan ventured out into the woods behind our Ann Arbor residence, and came back with a buck antler and big idea. Why not couple our love of the outdoors with our engineer minds and open an ETSY shop? And that’s how the first antler tap handle came to be! Now we have expanded our shop with all kinds of rustic and industrial items, including beer tap towers, paper goods, home accents, and more. We hope to keep creating, crafting and exploring the world of online sales! Thanks for your interest and business!
For those of you who don’t know us, Dan is currently getting his PhD in nuclear engineering from the University of Michigan and Lauren is a former chemist and now stay at home Mom. We have a passion for the outdoors and have been fortunate enough to travel the country through internships and jobs. We have explored the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, the Sawtooth Mountains of Idaho, Wyoming Tetons, Northern New Mexico and throughout Colorado and Alaska. We recently added a new addition to our little family, which has limited our travels at the moment, but we hope to pass on our love of hiking, camping, and the wilderness to not only our little man, but to you as you explore our website and shop. We hope to chronicle some of our past hikes and travels, so check back soon! : )
Lauren and Dan Walter
