Customers are finding memories and other delightful items at Lohmann’s Good Things

(Continued)

NORMAN —

The full line of Watkins products available at Lohmann’s also induce the nostalgia of earlier days when household products were sold door to door. Lohmann started selling Watkins products at the Norman Farm Market in 2007 and likes the products and the company history. Watkins was established in 1868 and markets health and beauty aids as well as pantry items.

Candy, decorative gift bags, greeting cards, whole bean coffee, and health foods are among the items that Lohmann sells and can talk about.

“Pecan oil is flavorless, it takes on the flavor of the foods or spices you’re cooking,” he said. “It’s one of the high heat oils.”

Lohmann points out that pecan oil has a much higher smoke point than olive oil.

Interested in raw honey? Lohmann can tell you which apiaries his products are from and what the pollen zone for Oklahoma is.

For those looking for an unusual gift, Lohmann’s may have that one unique item you need. But don’t think you have to buy something to stop by and just browse the wares. If you get lucky enough to stop in when owner Roland Lohmann is there, feel free to ask about any product. The merchandise comes with a price tag, but the stories are free.
