We love wildlife here at Vermont Woods Studios.  Forest conservation
is, afterall, a large part of our mission.  So, if you're anything like us, we have an
exciting event for you to attend this weekend. Saturday, September 15, is the third annual
Vermont Wildlife Festival. This day-long event, put together by the Southern
Vermont Natural History Museum
, is designed to "showcase the many ways
that we enjoy the outdoors in Vermont."
The day (10am-4pm) is packed full of events by over twenty different organizations. During the Vermont Wildlife Festival you will see live animals (including
raptors and a wolf), have the opportunity to go on a guided hike, a scavenger
hunt, interactive demonstrations, wilderness survival information, and much more. Not quite sold yet? What
if I told you that this event is FREE?

Still not 100% sold? Have I mentioned that this event will
be taking place right near the Hogback Mountain Scenic Overlook? It is a
panoramic 100-mile breath-taking view. It is a must-see, and a perfect photo opportunity,
for both Vermonters and tourists alike.

For more information about this event, I encourage you to
visit the Vermont Wildlife Festival website. You will find directions and a
full list of the events.

Save up to 20% with Vermont Woods Studios' Fall Dining Furniture Sale!

September has arrived, and with it, the feeling that fall
has begun. In Vermont, the signs
of fall are: pumpkins replacing summer berries at the farm stands, pick your
own apple signs, and of course, leaves coloring our landscape. The last of the
harvest brings us some of our favorite seasonal treats, like apple cider and
pumpkin pie. With cooler weather approaching, there will be a shift to inside
dining to enjoy these seasonal decadents with family and friends. It is time to
start thinking about retiring your barbeque grill and patio furniture for the
season, and preparing your dining room for fall feasts. What better way to
spruce up your dining room than getting some new furniture? So, we're making
that easier by putting all of our hardwood dining furniture styles, including
modern, contemporary, traditional, and shaker on sale until September 18th.
Save up to 20%, plus free shipping and a lifetime guarantee.  See our online gallery for details.

Labor-day-sale2

Vermont Woods Studios is having a 5 day sale for Labor Day! Save 15% plus free shipping on new, fine wood furniture!

 

Labor Day was created to honor the achievements of American
workers.  This national holiday is a
perfect time to celebrate the hard work that Americans do every day.

At Vermont Woods Studios, we are constantly amazed at the
dedication and hard work that goes into handcrafting fine wood furniture.  It is a skill that has been handed down to
Vermonter's for over 200 years, and for many of our craftsmen, the technique is virtually unchanged.  The furniture
at Vermont Woods Studios is 100% American made furniture with sustainably
harvested American hardwoods. Our furniture makers carefully select only the
finest solid cherry, maple, walnut, and oak woods to ensure that they make the
highest quality furniture that is intended to last for many generations.  It is even backed by a lifetime guarantee.

For Labor Day we are putting our gifted furniture maker's
pieces on sale, so that you can honor these American craftsmen, too. With a lot
of Labor Day events, we know that this is a busy weekend. So, we're having our
Labor Day furniture sale run five days, from Friday, August 31st until Tuesday,
September 4th. This allows you the time to fit in fun and relaxation, plus take
advantage of our holiday sale. During our Labor Day furniture sale, you can
save 15% storewide (plus free shipping), and conveniently shop 24 hours a day on our
online gallery.

Whether you're traveling, socializing, shopping or relaxing we hope
that you have a wonderful weekend!

Labor Day is one of our beloved long weekends, and has
almost become synonymous with fairs in American culture.  Vermont
has a few great fairs and festivals scattered through out the state to help you
celebrate this weekend.

 

Northern Vermont:
The Champlain Valley Fair, located in Essex Junction (about
15 minutes outside of Burlington)
began on Saturday, August 25th, and will continue through Monday, September
3rd.  This fair is packed with concerts,
rides, animals, and of course, fair food!

Central Vermont:
The Vermont State Fair is located in Rutland,
Vermont.
The 167 year old family tradition will run from Friday, August 31st to
Sunday, September 9th.  There will be
demolition derbies, concerts, tractor pulls, a carnival, food vendors (ever
tried fried dough with maple syrup?), and much, much more!

Southern Vermont:
The 17th Annual Southern Vermont Garlic and Herb Festival is
located in Bennington, Vermont.
This outdoor festival will be open on
Saturday, September 1st, and Sunday September 2nd, from 10am-5pm.  Join
fellow garlic lovers in visiting over 100 different vendors, joining workshops,
and listening to live music.  Kids will
be happy to tag along when they learn about the hay maze, face painting,
inflatable fun jumps, and the bean bag toss!

Another Southern Vermont event
happening Labor Day weekend (September 1st and 2nd) is the 18th annual Mount
Snow Brewers Festival
.  Mount
Snow is located in West
Dover.  With 35 breweries,
there will be over 80 beers and ciders for sample and sale.  In addition to the beverages, there will be a
large music tent and food vendors. Scenic chairlift rides will be available,
allowing people the unique experience of seeing the Mount
Snow view during the summertime.

This Labor Day weekend, there is an event for everybody in Vermont.  What are your weekend plans? Tell us on our
Facebook page.

the recent cooler nights and the realization that Labor Day is less than 2
weeks away, we're beginning to feel that summer's end is near…well, at least
in Vermont. While we know that Labor Day doesn't technically signal
the end of summer, for many it's a symbolic end as minds begin shifting to the fall.
Before we know it, the feasting holidays will soon be here! If you're
like most, this can be the time of year where you might find yourself doing a
lot of hosting, especially in the dining room. So, perhaps it's time to think
about how to make your home feast-ready for the holidays, and it's also a good
time to consider other home improvement projects.

Since dining room furniture gets
the most use and attention during the feasting holidays, this room may be a
primary focus. In between choosing, crafting, and delivering fine wood
furniture, many weeks can slip by. Crafting fine furnishings takes time, so
planning for Thanksgiving at the end of August is actually the perfect amount
of time.

While your furniture is being
crafted perhaps there are other things that you would like to do to get your dining
room ready. For instance, painting, refinishing floors or replacing carpet,
makes sense to do before your new furniture arrives.

So we at Vermont
Woods Studios Furniture
have decided to put our fine wood dining room furniture on sale now
through August 30th! If it’s high quality, American Made, real wood furniture
you are considering then the next week is the best time to buy and save up to
20% (plus Free Shipping)! Our heirloom quality furniture features timeless
styling and sturdy construction which you can enjoy holiday after holiday with
your family for generations. Browse our online dining furniture gallery to see our
large selection of wood dining tables, dining chairs, sideboards, hutches and
buffets. Ordering now will ensure delivery before Thanksgiving and allow you
time to enjoy it before the crowds arrive!
