Ken managed to get me on his Harley this weekend and we drove up to Woodstock to see our friends and colleagues at the Vermont Fine Furniture Festival. If you haven't been yet, you are missing out! It's well worth the trip, especially on a beautiful day like we had this year. Here are some pictures of the festival and our trip.
Here's Bruce Wilkie of On Vermont Time – Beautiful handcrafted clocks and custom furniture.
Vermont's beautiful Fall produce and flowers are available at farm stands everywhere. Sadly we had no room to carry any home
Many of the finest furniture makers in the state and indeed the country
were at the Festival showing their latest works of art, demonstrating
their craft and offering fabulous deals on handcrafted, Vermont made
solid wood furniture.
Scott Duffy of Rockledge Farm was showing this beautiful walnut table. It has a soft live edge you can barely see, but it's absolutely gorgeous.
Jim Becker makes incredible windsor chairs, barstools and lots of other beautiful furniture as well.
This is a new Craftsman bed we're just beginning to carry at Vermont Woods Studios.
Neal Albert of Shelburne Fine Woodworking makes high end custom kitchen cabinets and a line of custom tables with secret compartments.

If you were unlucky enough to miss the Vermont Furniture Festival this year, put it on your calendar for next year. It's always around the last weekend in September. It's a great destination and the perfect excuse to get outside and enjoy Vermont's colorful Autumn scenery.
