Over at Buffalo Gals Mercantile, they’ve branded themselves with the slogan “Fabulous things you never knew you needed!” Like what? And just what is a “mercantile shop,” anyway?

Well, a mercantile shop is defined as a “rural or small town store that carries a broad selection of merchandise; the main shop of a community.” Buffalo Gals’ owner, Katy Kassian, has a whole online shop loaded up with vintage goodies galore: hats made from reclaimed materials and handmade aprons and purses, plus treats like coffee, hand-rolled biscotti, and more. In addition to being a talented craftsperson, baker of delicious goods, and resident and worker on a farm in North Dakota, she is also our Give Your Brand a Hand winner for January!

To help build her vintage-inspired brand, she chose some down-to-earth items to share with customers. The first were some of our jotter notebooks (and we encourage customers who snag one of these to use it to jot down one of her delicious biscotti recipes, if you can).


Plus no promotional product order for a seamstress like Katy would be complete without personalized tape measures!


We love the creative ideas that Katy came up with, and we know her customers will too!
