A Very Country Holiday With Beekman 1802

Perennial faves Beekman 1802 are back for the holidays, with goat’s milk beauty goodies for every luxury loving giftee on your list. Founders Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge are making the trek from their farm in Sharon Springs to the big city for a STORY trunk show and meet-and-greet on Thursday, November 29th. They’ll have a selection of Beekman products on hand, plus copies of their brand-new children’s book, Precious Little Snowflake. Ahead of the festivities, the Beekman boys gave us the scoop on what’s on their agenda when they drop into Manhattan and what’s inspiring them these days.
