Holgate’s early toy designer was Jarvis Rockwell, brother of famous illustrator Norman Rockwell who visited the Holgate factory on several occasions.Jarvis Rockwell’s concern for safety, durability and educational play earned him recognition as America’s premier toy designer during this period.
With the great consumer success of its toys, Holgate began concentrating on this segment of it’s business.
Today Holgate is synonymous with toys…
and still making the finest wooden toys in America. Our factory is now located in Bradford, Pennsylvania, still in the middle of America’s premier hardwood forests.
Today, Holgate is recognized as the premier maker of children’s wooden toys in America.

Holly adds: I have actually had a shop on Etsy since 2008, but I have never listed anything ;o(. It is time to change that. I have started to make charm bracelets using vintage (and new) items that I have collected over the years. Each one is unique. So, in the next few weeks I will be adding some items to my Etsy shop-hollymaren’s EPHEMERA ETCETERA. I will also be adding vintage jewelry and fun items for helping you create your own special art work.
I hope you will check it out (give me a few days)-thank you!

“Our mission is to empower people to change the way the global economy works. We see a world in which very-very small businesses have much-much more sway in shaping the economy, local living economies are thriving everywhere, and people value authorship and provenance as much as price and convenience. We are bringing heart to commerce and making the world more fair, more sustainable, and more fun.”
You can find just about anything here! Beautiful, funky, unique, one-of-a -kind, gorgeous items abound. I have included some pictures below of sample products picked at random.
Holly adds: to help you dream, or get started, Jay offers a new, beautiful book full of wonderful tiny home pictures, plans and ideas.
THE SMALL HOUSE BOOK
TUMBLEWEED TINY HOUSE COMPANY
“Since completing Tumbleweed, I have continued to make little buildings. How each house gets used depends on the occupant’s particular needs. What one person would enjoy as a quiet studio in their backyard, another couple might choose to inhabit as a full-time residence. What some people see as the perfect weekend hideaway in the country, others will use as a beautiful free-standing addition to their existing home for accommodating an elderly parent, an adult child, guests, or as office space. My houses have been composed with meticulous attention to light, warmth, energy efficiency, and proportion. I have made the most of each cozy interior by minimizing transitional areas like hallways and stairwells and by using otherwise unusable space as storage. The simple, formal designs that have resulted are the best way I have found to order most any space and make it beautiful.”
“At Tumbleweed Tiny House Company its our mission to make the plans and tools available so you can build your own little building based on my designs, ready-to-build kits, and even already manufactured tiny homes ready to be transported to you.”
Holly adds: This is not a traditional “made in the USA” company. However, this blog features so many small houses and start-ups from around our country (and overseas on occasion), that I felt they were perfect for the site! You can buy plans here too.
TINY HOUSE BLOG
“The goal of the tiny house blog is to discover the different options available for a person looking to down size into a tiny house or cabin. I will be looking at different type of construction, from logs, to yurts to modern and the unusual. I will also do book reviews, look at alternate energy for heat and electricity. I also want to hear your story so please contact me with your pictures and your own experiences in living simply and small.”
“I want to encourage feedback and ideas to make this an informative blog. Stories of people who are living this dream. Pictures of tiny houses and cabins, etc. My goal is to publish daily if possible. Thank you for sharing in this experience with me.”
