Southernly Zen: coffee shirts, crafting stuff, and the start of an empire

Crafting is popular in some crowds, reviled in others. It’s the subject of memes, gifs, and other pop culture humor…and it’s the topic of today’s Small American Business. Southernly Zen is a small shop run as a creative side hustle by one of our friends. Are coffee shirts or other Etsy-type crafty thingamawhatsits our typical subject matter? Not even remotely. But we’re nothing if not eclectically multifarious.

Crafting is a Thing. Some much better than others.

Grunts: multifarious.

Anyway, if you don’t like it, don’t read it. Or go start your own website.

As you can see, Southernly Zen is a relative newcomer to her battlespace, but she’s off to a strong start. And given her initial focus (coffee) it’s no surprise. After all, coffee is the Nectar of the Gods.

coffee is life
“I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.” T.S. Eliot

Know who loves coffee? Leroy Jethro Gibbs, Captain America, Jesus, Agent J. and Jules Winnfield. Know who doesn’t like coffee? Pinko Commies and anti-American anarchists, that’s who.

But first coffee
Who doesn’t love coffee?

Black, taken with cream, sweetened with sugar or even honey…it’s all wonderful.

But again we digress. Here are some examples of what you’ll find at Southernly Zen. As you can see, coffee isn’t her only focus, but it’s a great start.

Coffee then wine
Etsy shirts are available for just about any focus. this just happens to be a really good one. “The morning cup of coffee has an exhilaration about it which the cheering influence of the afternoon or evening cup of tea cannot be expected to reproduce.” Wendell Holmes Sr.

“Why, yes, I could start my day without coffee. But I like being able to remember things like how to say words and put on pants.” Nanea Hoffman


The Southernly Zen craft empire has begun
“I was taken by the power that savoring a simple cup of coffee can have to connect people and create community.” Howard Schultz

We’re happy to support Southernly Zen, not least because she isn’t one of those really annoying crafters.


Though she does have some of their tendencies.
