November 24, 2013 – Gillum House Bed & Breakfast: Years ago I told Larry Riffle of Riffle Pottery in Cowen, West Virginia I wanted a coffee cup with a handle big enough for a MAN to grab and large enough for that man to know he had a cup of coffee! This was important because we roast the green coffee beans so our guests get the freshest coffee off the plantation. Our guests choose the country they want for their morning coffee. He came through with a great mug – it holds 16 ounces of coffee! (Some hold more because each one is “thrown” so no two are alike and each mug is signed by Larry.)
Friday, November 22, 2013 we met Larry to take delivery of the latest order of mugs. That was great – however, Larry had a surprise for me! He made some Gillum House napkin rings for me. It is going to be awesome to set the table with Gillum House mugs and matching napkin rings.
