Quality Home Goods for Southerners Who Love Their Mamas and Hoard Bacon Fat



The Leave Me Alone, I’m Retired Coffee Mug

Regular price $15.00

This mug was inspired by Mr. Releford, who spent decades on the maintenance staff of public schools in Atlanta. He could tell you stories that would make your hair curl about what your little darlings could do while at school. We hope his well earned retirement involves a lot of sitting and drinking coffee.

These designs cannot wear off so you can make it your favorite coffee cup for everyday use. Come see all of our new coffee mugs!

White cup with black design.

Come read our Barn Blog for stories more Southern than train songs, white dirt and Carolina dogs.

Chuck Reece, former editor of The Bitter Southerner and voice of the award-winning The Bitter Southerner Podcast, spins some tales so good they'll make you want to say grace with a Southern drawl and eat a tomato sandwich.

Stacy Reece, Cool Stuff Officer at Down South, makes the products and adds a few stories and recipes to make everybody from grandmothers to grandmillenials feel good about about having a Southern drawl. Her work has been featured in Okra Magazine and the Southern Living Blog. We are proud 2021 Community Partners with the Alliance Theatre for the production of Darlin' Cory.
