New Mugs from Wildflower Vintage PDX

Sunday, March 11, 2018
I bought these three lovely mugs from Wildflower Vintage PDX, and I'm loving them!  They are even nicer than I thought they would be with a good amount of weight to them.  They're the perfect size, too, for how much coffee I drink per cup.  In choosing a coffee cup, there are several important elements to consider.  Here are a few I look for initially:

1.  Handle.  Does the handle fit your hand well, and does it have features that make holding it even better, such as a thumbprint at the top of the handle?  Those are my personal favorites.

2.  Weight.  Is it too light?  Too heavy?  Too wide?  Too tall?  How much coffee do you like to drink in one setting?  Buy a mug that matches your volume per cup each morning.

3.  Material.  Is it clay?  Ceramic?  Glass?  Or is it metal?  Metal does not work well for reheating, and the handle usually heats up pretty nicely making it difficult to hold.  Find out what the material is and if it is even dishwasher safe.  Most members of reputable potters' associations, such as Oregon Potters Association, create pottery that is microwave-safe.

And by the way, this is the second time I have purchased from Wildflower Vintage PDX.  A couple of months ago, I bought this cute shelf from her.  I love her taste, and I'm sure this won't be the last time I do business with her.  Follow her on Instagram for the latest updates to her shop!
