I wrote several weeks ago about our Customer, Rudie who lives in Norway. Rudie purchased a beautiful custom Coat Tree made of tree saplings by artisan, David Holzapfel. You can imagine that it might be very nerve wracking to order an expensive piece of artwork/furniture from a small company half a world away. But Rudie and I used email and a couple phone calls to establish a mutual trust and confidence…and friendship. Yesterday, Rudie received his Coat Tree and I have to share his comments with you:
"Peggy, Peggy, Peggy . . . The coat tree arrived in the afternoon and it is beautiful !!! I am very happy… it is like jewelry in my house. Tomorrow afternoon I go on a short holiday but when I am back I will send you photos. My mother will come next week and she also is dying to see the coat tree. For sure that she loves it. I will enjoy looking at it for a lifetime, and with me many others that will visit my house as familie and friends and colleagues from work. Thank you very much for everything and of course please also thank David for his beautiful piece of work. You can tell him that his coat tree has found a good home. The coat tree was very well packed in the crate, good job. I will keep watching your gallery. Again thank you very much for everything. My very best regards, Rudie"
Another happy customer. This is what we live for here at Vermont Woods Studios. Life is good.
