I need a Hexe, kitchen witch, for my kitchen to feel complete

The title pretty much says it all. I have long felt my Germanic heritage, and a really good kitchen witch belongs in my kitchen. Not one made in Asia, but either an American (Pennsylvania Dutch) or even European Hexe would be the one thing that my kitchen needs to feel complete.
We're going to Philadelphia next week and Fantes only has an Asian hexe listed in their memorabilia.

Maybe someone has found 'artisan' hexen?

  1. I wonder if you might check Etsy? I just searched at the site and they have Pennsylvania Dutch kitchen hexen, along with a bunch of kitchen witch stuff, all artisan.

    1. They have a nice assortment here:

      Just not sure where these are made.

      1. Go to the Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia. You will find plenty of PA Dutch hexes there, along with plenty of good things to eat.

          Reading Terminal sounds just right; is there any chance you know if the bit on their website that the Pennsylvania Dutch part of the market is closed Sun-Tues and begins their open times Wed 8-3?

            That certainly used to be the case, but I haven't lived in the area for 3 years and things may have changed. Try posting a query on the Philadelphia board for more current info. Viel Gl├╝ck!.
