It was a sad day indeed when the phrase “Hold the door!” became part of our culture. Never has there been a more beloved character than Hodor, the very large man with a very large heart who can only utter one word.   This little doorstop is in honor of that great man. The graphic was drawn by our daughter Jennifer.

You might also enjoy our Gratitude Stones and the Burlap Pouches that go with them. They make me think of him.
