About Us

Who We Are

Hiya! I’m Shannie, a long-time believer that every day should end with dirty feet and messy hair. I have embodied that belief with ease due to my serious disdain for shoes and my super fine four pieces of curly hair which are naturally a wild mess.  Mountain Woman Products & The Frugal Hippie Blog are my passions & my creative outlets.

Farmboy (my hottiepants hubs) is the mechanical genius & quality control behind the operation. He lends his brilliance to make my end products durable & high quality.

And….he runs Mountain Man Ironworks. From time to time, his decorative ironwork can be seen in our Mountain Woman Products shop. That is, if I haven’t run off with his latest creation, screw gun in hand, gleefully yelling, “Mine, mine, mine, mine!” while madly attaching it to our house before it can make it to the shop. Cuz maybe that kinda’ might happen sometimes….

Mason Jars with Lids & Straws

Back in 2012, little old Mountain Woman Products rolled out our first mason jar travel cups.  We loved drinking from mason jars, but wanted to be able to take them on the go without spilling our drinks all over the truck…a few too many times of sticky truck seats later….. tada! Travel drinking jars were born.

Our BPA-free plastic lids will never rust and we use a removable grommet for easy cleaning.  And our design allows the straw to reach all the way to the edge of your mason jar so when you tip your jar to take a drink, you’ll get every last drop. We were the very first to make reusable mason jar lids with straws, and we’d still like to think we make them the best!

Stained Glass Art & Suncatchers

We’re a little bit (maybe more like madly) in love with the unique beauty of raw stained glass…every piece is a work of art itself.  It’s part of what makes taking raw glass and making it into our Stained Glass Art & Suncatchers so much fun!  No two finished pieces will ever be exactly alike.  The health of the earth (& humans) is important to us so we use lead-free solder in all of our stained glass art & suncatchers.

 

 

Wedding & Outdoor Lighting, Candleholders & Hanging Vases

Shortly after our foray into the mason jar world, we designed our first hanging mason jar lanterns.  We hand wrapped the wraps & hangers & designed them for durability. Then we realized they’d make really cute vases too! We’re extremely thankful to have had our versatile hanging mason jar candle holder vases in hundreds of weddings and many patio parties.  It’s such an honor to have our creations be part of someone’s special day.

Over the years we’ve added blue & purple mason jar lanterns to our collection as well as hanging glass globes. We’re a bit fascinated with anything glass, candley or planty so we like to add to our lighting & vase collection as often as possible.

 

Farmboy’s Decorative Ironwork & Our Recycled, Upcycled & Reincarnated Goods

Mountain Man Ironworks is the bigger, burlier boyfriend of Mountain Woman Products & we often feature his decorative iron work & upcycled creations in our shop.

Making old stuff into cooler new stuff is another one of our passions at Mountain Woman Products.  We love to add upcycled (or reincarnated as we like to call them) goods into the shop as often as possible. We use pallets, vintage tools, & anything fun or funky we can find.

 

Our Packaging

Our motto is Eco-organichandcraftiness and we take being earth friendly seriously. Our packaging is recycled, recyclable, & biodegradable and our products follow suit.  We exclusively use people and eco-friendly lead-free solder in all of our stained glass creations.
