New Mugs! Now with bonus penguins.

A new shipment of Rickert & Beagle mugs in now in stock! Plenty more of the popular “diner” style (the flared mug with the very heavy bottom)


We’ve added a second mug style with a bigger handle and plenty more room for your hot beverage of choice inside. As always, our mugs are $8 each, microwaveable and dishwasher safe.IMG_1626

Each mug features the logo on the front and a tiny rocket ship traversing the inside. Rocket ship placement is at the discretion of our mug-maker (Chris’ dad) so you’ll want to investigate each mug to find the perfect one for you!


Because the mug-maker has a strong sense of whimsy (and a history of travel to Antarctica) a few of this mug shipment feature bonus penguins! (You’ll have to check carefully before you buy, there are very few penguins)

Because Cat and Chris work with some very special authors, give-away goodies from Peter S. Beagle and Neil Gaiman will be on hand (for as long as they last) as well as some light refreshments.
