I’m Miriam, the human being behind Tinderbox Goods. I live, work, write and eat in San Antonio, Texas, USA. Tinderbox Goods was born out of a totally normal desire to make a living from pioneer woman type exploits, like making soap and sewing. A class at the Southwest School of Art opened my eyes to the marvels of letterpress printing. Though not making a living from my handiwork just yet, Tinderbox Goods is a start.
Why Tinderbox? A tinder box is the train car that stores kindling, coal, and other fuel for the engine. It can also refer to a box that held flint, steel, and other items used to light a fire before the advent of matches. The word tinderbox has come to imply a place or situation that could ignite with the slightest spark. Tinderbox Goods is where my creative spark is catching fire.
