If you’ve never stepped into American Hatfield before, you’ve been missing out on a fantastic experience. Enter the doors, and you’ll immediately appreciate the beautiful, inviting collection of various products that draw customers back to the shop time and time again. And you’ll no doubt enjoy adding American Hatfield’s unique, outdoor-style American home goods, clothing, and handmade items to your life.

American Hatfield has two locations you’ll want to visit — their original store, located in the blossoming Main Street area of Broken Arrow, and the newly launched shop at The Boxyard in downtown Tulsa. Each space features a few special items you can only get in that one location. But you can rest assured that both stores reflect the creative, nature-inspired designs and décor that owner Kyle Hatfield loves.

“We started as an antique store,” says Hatfield, who got hooked into antiques through his family. He launched his antique store in downtown Coweta, revitalizing an old building there and concentrating on vintage finds. Slowly, Hatfield started bringing in gift items and other products to broaden the store’s appeal. Soon, he was able to relocate American Hatfield to Broken Arrow and then expand to The Boxyard as well.

One of the ways that American Hatfield stands out is in its line of enticing candles. Crafted and hand-blended at the Broken Arrow location, these woodsy, outdoorsy scents are fitting for everyone who enjoys fresh, nature-based scented products. You’ll appreciate their aromas, which are reminiscent of wandering out of doors — sandalwood, cedar, pine, jasmine, firewood, amber, oak, leather, lemon, tobacco, patchouli and more — all rich and pleasing to the nostrils.

These homemade candles are one of American Hatfield’s top-selling items, and it’s no wonder why. “We take pride in them,” says Hatfield. “They’re made of soy — a natural, clean candle. They are heavily fragranced, so you get a strong candle for your money. And we switch it up and rotate candle scents depending on the time of year.”

All the scents have a natural, earth-based aesthetic, and they come in three sizes, great for home or office, or gift giving. And American Hatfield sells fragrances in other forms too, including incense, melts, oils, soaps, colognes, lotions, body wash, and more — all made locally in Broken Arrow.

Of course, American Hatfield sells much more than candles and other scented products. The shelves feature a wide variety of fun gift items ranging in prices to fit any budget. (Photo: Sarah Eliza Roberts)

For a unique experience, look into American Hatfield’s candle bar experience. “This has been something we’ve wanted to do for a while,” says Hatfield. “You get to come in and pick up to 24 different scents and make your candle. It’s enjoyable and takes 30-40 minutes to do.” As guests wait for their candle to cool, they can play games, have a drink, and browse the store’s shelves.

The candle bar experience is available at both American Hatfield locations, though each has its own flavor to fit the store and its location. “Our Broken Arrow location allows up to a group of 30 at one time,” says Hatfield. “The Boxyard is for walk-ins.” For Father’s Day, families can come and enjoy a unique candle bar experience with dad.

Of course, American Hatfield sells much more than candles and other scented products. The shelves feature a wide variety of fun gift items ranging in prices to fit any budget. Many are nature-themed, but they offer novelty items too — such as funny socks and handmade postcards. “If you don’t have a sense of humor, our store is probably not going to be for you,” says Hatfield.

Beyond the fun stuff, you’ll find practical and decorative pieces, such as blankets, sunglasses, hammocks, maps of Oklahoma, local honey, local candy made by Mollycoddled out of Fort Gibson, local coffees such as Fair Fellow and Cirque, and more. American Hatfield looks to support local artisans whenever possible.

The shop also makes its own line of T-shirts. “We come up with the designs, and they’re made locally,” says Hatfield. The shirts change with the seasons too, and you’ll want to check out the summer tanks, lake tops, and tees on the shelves now for the warmer weather.

Hatfield also suggests checking out the roll-on colognes, also handmade by American Hatfield, and another favorite item. “These are easy to take with you anywhere you go,” he says. “You’ll smell good all day.”

Be sure to visit American Hatfield’s Boxyard location this summer. “It’s is a little more urban in flavor,” says Hatfield. The Boxyard features some candles sold exclusively at that location and nowhere else. “They’re a bit edgier in scents,” he says.

American Hatfield is a sponsor of the Tulsa Pride celebration happening in downtown Tulsa this month. And to celebrate downtown events like Pride and Tulsa Tough, American Hatfield’s Boxyard location will carry exclusive T-shirts to add to the fun.

American Hatfield’s dedication to outdoor fun promises only to grow as the store looks to expand soon into the Lake Tenkiller area.
