Ancient soul. Ginger beard. Metal bender. Nordery-lover.
ABOUT: The first time we heard of Dutch (real name Nick) was when he tagged us on an Instagram photo of him wearing our shirt with Gandalf at his local Ren Faire in California. But then he mentioned that he might like to come out and work here and we thought wow, that’s insane in the cool way. Next thing you know, he works here now, and his lovely fiancee makes those insane Meadowmead cookies we well at the shop these days. He is also a bard and a blacksmith, a giant dork in the Nick Offerman sort of way, and secretly looks a lot like Jonah Hill under that beard.
FAVORITE THINGS: Participating in Nordic rituals in the woods, blacksmithing, flipping off cameras, sampling the culinary delights of the Tri-Cities, snuggling the shop dog, bonfires with friends, flannel/plaid, living in a place with seasons, apparently.
FANDOMS: Likely cannot state strongly enough, Nordic/Viking things, the show Vikings, Tarantino, and much more we will come to learn in time. He does tend to open up when we feed him.
SPECIALTIES: Long-studied in the ways of the scumbags of Schorem, Dutch is a dedicated lover of classic haircuts and the Reuzel that so often goes on them. His beard is excellent, and he’ll gleefully make yours the same, and his razor game is on-point. And if you want to see more of what he’s up to/know when he has chair spots to fill, follow him on Instagram.
