As Thanksgiving quickly approaches, it’s important to remember that this holiday was not originally intended to promote Christmas sales. More and more we see “Black Friday” move into Thanksgiving Day. I thought it would be nice to reach out to some of our customers, craftsmen, and Vermont Woods Studios staff to see what they are thankful for this year.
I’m thankful for my home and awesome new dog! -Kelsey, VWS Marketing Assistant
I am thankful for my incredibly supportive husband and my crazy little 2 year old. I love that I have the opportunity to stay home and care for our son – I am one lucky mom (on most days anyway!). -Lisa, Customer, Maplewood, NJ
I am thankful to live in a country where violence and terror are not the norms for resolving political differences. I am thankful for the men and women of the Armed Forces, emergency service workers and other public service members who are separated from friends and family during Thanksgiving because they are providing for the defense and safety of our communities, whether they be in war zones or here on American soil. I am thankful for those who put themselves in harm’s way to give me the freedom that I often take for granted. It is because of them that I have the ability to spend time at home with friends and family. -Loryn, VWS Sales
Health, Family & Friends! -Cheryl, Craftsman
I am thankful for my family and getting to spend Thanksgiving with them and not having to cook! -Sean, VWS Sales
I don’t want to sound too schmaltzy, but I am thankful for my family: that my wife and I are still committed to each other; that my kids are happy, successfully launched and making their way in the world; that I have an extended family whom I love and who love me. Beyond my blood family, I am grateful for the friends and community that make me feel like I’m a part of something larger than myself.
Except for a few people, in the end the great bulk of us are remembered only for how well we loved others and how well they loved us. I am thankful to have so many people to love.
Happy Thanksgiving. -Steve, Craftsman
This being my first year at Vermont Woods Studios, I am thankful to be working with such a great team doing work I enjoy, while helping the environment and supporting our local craftspeople! -Martin, VWS Webmaster
In a nutshell—I am thankful for my wonderful family, for health and for peace! -Cheryl, Customer, McLean, VA
I am thankful for our friendly, witty, quirky, dedicated staff members at Vermont Woods Studios that make our customers feel like family! -Peggy, Founder and VWS Visionary
This is my first Thanksgiving at Vermont Woods Studios. Having been part of a company downsizing a little over a year ago, I can’t believe how lucky I am to now be working with a group of like-minded people and so close to my own home. And, so my family doesn’t think I don’t appreciate them, I will give a shout out to my amazing daughters and my very patient husband. I would also be remiss if I omitted my theater and church family members! -Michelle, VWS Sales
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Vermont Woods Studios!

Have you noticed that Black Friday Sales have expanded over the years? I remember when it actually used to be on the day after Thanksgiving. Now in 2013 it’s all of November at many stores.
With American made, handcrafted fine furniture– sales work a little differently than with electronics or clothing, though. Made to order furniture, crafted especially for you doesn’t offer much economy of scale during a big storewide sale. So without compromising on craftsmanship or premium quality sustainable lumber, we’ve had to figure out other ways to add value and give customers the best price.
That’s where buying fine furniture as a set comes in. Craftspeople add efficiency to their system when building sets rather than individual pieces. And at Vermont Woods Studios we add efficiency (and save money) when shipping multiple pieces to the same address.
We pass that savings on to you so every day we can offer 2013 Black Friday sale prices — if you buy your furniture in a set. Check out our handmade bedroom sets, solid wood dining furniture sets and living room (coffee, end and sofa) table sets. They are all value priced at 20% off year round. Don’t see exactly what you want? Give Liz or Sean a call and they’ll customize your set now with the pieces you want. And when Thanksgiving comes around, you can relax with your family. Isn’t that what the holidays are all about?

Manjula and Dennis are in the next room fine-tuning this year's Black Friday Furniture Sale. I can only eavesdrop at the moment– because they know I'm going to blog about the details as soon as I hear them. Stay tuned and I will fill you in as soon as I know what's up.
In the meantime, check out our American Made Holiday Shopping Challenge. Before you scoop up all those Black Friday bargains, check to see where the stuff is made and share any great "American made" finds with us on Facebook.
Here's another idea for your "American Made" Christmas shopping: our furniture gift certificates. You can purchase them in multiples of $100. A pretty cool stocking-stuffer, don't you think?
