With the chill of November upon us, we find ourselves spending most nights fireside, sipping a smooth, small-batch bourbon and flipping through the archives of the most kick-ass Kentuckians to date. Oh! to be Boone, or Lincoln...or even the Colonel- the thought alone has us quivering with KY pride. You might ask, What made these men the epic heroes we worship today? Well, it's true that they we're strong as a bear, sly as a fox and quick as a copperhead on a summer Sunday. But, if you gaze deep into the crystal ball of the Bluegrass, you'll see that it was their manly grizzle that truly made this success story sizzle.
Now that our minds are a flurry with the most decadent beards ever to grace our great state, we got on the horn to the only man who could truly tackle the task of showcasing this fine spread. On the other end of that fateful call to arms was the one and only Ron Jasin of Louisville's Madpixel Art & Design Studio. Ron is no stranger to the finest details, and knows a thing or two about the most bad-ass beards around. He set his pen to motion, and when he stepped back to see the glory of his creation, a KY beard commemoration for the ages was born. Amen.
150 PRINTS WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE ON FRIDAY NOVEMBER 29TH AT 10:30AM ET

Our first batch of ‘Scents Of The Commonwealth’ candles got hot like Jennifer Lawrence and sold out in under a minute. Hot like fried chicken. Hot like Kentucky. Hot like Rainbow Looms and Cronuts. Apparently, everyone wants their home to smell like Kentucky. Everyone wants their home to smell like tasty Fried chicken. Thank you sweet baby Jesus, thank you Kentucky for being the first to fry chicken.
This past week, these amazing Kentucky scented candles were featured in the USA Today, Fast Company, The Daily Mail, Creativity, The Bob and Tom Show, Complex Magazine, Grub Street, The Huffington Post, Perez Hilton, Food Beast, Eater, PSFK, Fox News, TAXI, Jezebel, etc. All over the internets and beyond. The talented Kathy Werking (our candle maker) is going to appear on Fox News this week and we’ve heard rumors they plan to burn some fried chicken candles on The View later this week. Thank you sweet baby Barbara Walters.
If you missed out on buying a candle or two last Friday (we’ve received over 500 emails from those that have), don’t worry we’ve got more on the way. We are working with Kathy Werking on a new batch of Kentucky scented candles for the holidays. Fried chicken candles for everyone, at least 100 of you. We’ll begin pre-selling 100 of each scent (Fried Chicken, Ale-8, and Derby) on Tuesday November 26th at 10:30 am. See ya then. #KentuckyKicksAss
We've been searching far and wide for MORE vintage Kentucky highway maps that we could use for ANOTHER kick ass print project with our main man Olive Hill Tim Jones. After a few months of acquiring more of these sweet old Kentucky highway maps we’re back in action. Back to the future. Back to releasing another batch of these beautiful prints.
This is the third batch of our bad-ass vintage highway map prints. The second batch sold out in 15 minutes. This batch celebrates kick ass Kentuckian Abraham Lincoln's epic quote:
'I hope to have god on my side, but I must have Kentucky' - Abraham Lincoln.
These vintage maps date back to anywhere from 1940 to 1980 and they are all in great condition. Each print is one of kind.
Designed and screen printed by hand in Lexington, KY by Tim Jones.
Sizes vary, but most are around 16" x 26"
Limited to 50.
They’ll be available for purchase on our website this Friday November 22nd at 10:30am.
Our mission is to engage and inform the world by promoting Kentucky people, places, and products. We're excited to announce that starting this Friday, we're adding "scents" to that mission statement. We're now in the business of promoting Kentucky's finest scents. That's right.
Kathy Werking, one of the Commonwealth's most prolific movers and shakers, has brought a little something extra to the table. When we learned that Kathy could make kick-ass candles, we commissioned her to do a special lineup just for us. So she got to work at Kentucky Green Studio and concocted the perfect blend of your favorite scents of the Commonwealth.
This time, we've paired her project up with Rachael Sinclair, who designed hand-drawn labels that illustrate the sweetest sides of Kentucky. And who doesn't want to light up a room with the nostalgic scents of Ale 8, Fried Chicken and Kentucky Derby debauchery? This creative collaboration sparked some heavenly aromas that will easily sweep you away to an Old Kentucky home away from home. We feel blessed, y'all.
*Only 25 candles of each scent will be available. Candles go on sale this Friday November 22nd at 10:30am on our website.
Fried Chicken Actual
Let the fresh, fried sizzle of savory golden goodness drift into your hearts and homes with one of our most delectable creations to date. To craft the perfect xtra crispy aroma, Kathy picks up her cast iron skillet, adds a little seasoning, and gets to work. To make these candles, she fries chicken in all-natural soy wax and adds an infusion of family secrets. With only 25 of these available, you'll want to keep this mouth-watering recipe to yourself.
Even when you’re away from your old Kentucky home, it’s possible to feel close when you...

Lexington artist David Kring really throws down for the Commonwealth. The same man who brought you the Lincoln flask took a swig of Kentucky spirit and got to work on a crispy new kick-ass vision. This time, he made us matching Colonel Sanders mugs and flasks - and we said hell yes, ya'll!
David designed the image of the Colonel himself and then transformed it into greatness, covered it in a crackly terra sigillata and iron wash, lined the interior of the pieces with a smooth red glaze, and poured himself a double just to test them out.
25 Colonel flasks and 25 Colonel mugs available for purchase on Friday November 8th at 10:30am on our website.
2. The show takes place in Louisville Kentucky. The show is like a big awesome ad for Kentucky.
3. Damaris shows us how to cook all sorts of kick ass southern dishes.
4. Occasionally she rocks Kentucky for Kentucky gear on the show. Like this 'Heaven Must Be A Kentucky Kind Of Place' tote (click here to get you one) she was rocking in the last episode.
"This past week, I used one of my favorite daily accessories at the Farmer's Market - my Kentucky For Kentucky 'Heaven Must Be A Kentucky Kind Of Place' tote. Couldn't have said it better myself!"
We're big fans, Damaris and her new show are off the damn hook.
