Hawksbill Trading Company
The Shenandoah Valley has a tradition of innovation born of necessity. Our ancestors who settled this area made what they needed, and traded any excess that they had. From a humble barn raising, to a fine painted blanket chest, nothing was a solo production. It took a group of artisans, crafters, tinkers and growers then, and it takes the same now.
During the train age in Luray there was a sophisticated merchant class that went as far as New York to bring the latest fashions back for their mercantiles. In return longboats made their way to Georgetown via the Shenandoah River shipping pig iron, grain and other products to the newly formed Nations Capitol.
Our cooperative is the latest chapter in this long tradition of trade. Items that show an actual hand in the process are what we crave. Locally grown and sourced ingredients are what we serve at our tables. Unique antique and vintage items that have a one of a kind story are what we use to decorate our homes. Artisan made items are what we treasure and hand down.
We invite you to stop in and see the latest offerings. Serve up something new that is as old as the hills. Visit a while, tell some lies, slow down and live a little at the Trading Company
