Don’t Miss the Markham Village Music Festival June 16

Handmade artisan pepper mills from Mapleseed Gallery on is delighted to be part of the 35th annual Markham Village Music Festival (Markham Village, Ontario) on June 16, 2012

We will be there with a great selection of our one-of-a-kind Mapleseed Gallery handcrafted spice mills (pepper mills) and spice bowls, as well as some wonderfully fragrant and flavourful varieties of hand blended peppercorns.

“Nothing beats the taste and texture of freshly milled peppercorns, spices, or sea-salt. Whether used in the preparation of a fine meal, or as a table grinder for everyday use, our spice mills are the perfect touch.  The ultimate combination of art and function . . . a hand turned wood spice mill spices up any culinary experience and adds elegance to your kitchen and dining room.”
