Each year it seems that the next holiday’s items are available in the store earlier and earlier. For instance most of us are probably not thinking about Halloween right now but I’ll bet you can find plenty of Halloween merchandise on many store shelves right now.

So it’s possible that you are not quite thinking about Thanksgiving just yet?  But perhaps it’s your turn to host the big Thanksgiving dinner this year?  Or maybe relatives or friends are coming in for the holidays?  But if your old dining room table or other dining room pieces are no longer up to the task then it is really not too soon to start thinking about getting some new furniture.

And as it takes some time for fine furniture to be built and delivered, thinking about buying new dining room furniture now, over 12 weeks out from the Holiday is actually a really good idea. After all, the highest demand placed on a dining room certainly has to be Thanksgiving and Christmas. And getting it all in place well ahead of time should prevent unnecessary stress. Industry statistics show that most consumers think of and begin their new dining room furniture search & shopping in November. Now that may work if one is willing to take the floor or popular in stock models but if it is more distinctive furniture you are after then putting much more decision and purchase time on your side makes sense. So we at Vermont Woods Studios Furniture have decided to put all our fine wood dining room furniture on sale now through September 6th! If it’s high quality, American Made, real wood furniture you are considering then the next two weeks is the best time to buy and save up to 15% (plus Free Shipping)!  And with its timeless styling and sturdy construction this is furniture you can enjoy holiday after holiday and share with your family for generations. You can hop over to our online dining furniture gallery to see our large selection of wood dining tables, dining chairs, sideboards, hutches and buffets. And ordering now will ensure delivery before Thanksgiving and allow you time to enjoy it before the crowds arrive!

I wanted to share this customer feedback with you and also express our gratitude to Gail P, who took the time our of her very busy day to write this kind review.  Thanks Gail!

Cherry Buffet
Dear Peggy and Kendall, Thank you so much for the mug
and coffee from Vermont Woods Studios Furniture. That was a very nice touch – something
kind that you didn't have to do. It jogged my memory and now I'm
sending photos for you.

The buffet which was customized to my specifications is just what I
imagined! It is gorgeous. The delivery was just as promised as well. The
two delivery men were extremely courteous and careful. They were also
very patient while they waited for me to fully examine the furniture.

I have sent you photos of the buffet in its place in my dining room.
We are in California, so I'm sure both the buffet and the table will
change some more in color.

 

     

 

Extra Shelves - Buffet
I also sent you photos of the buffet doors
open so you could see that I did make good use of the extra shelves on
one side. I am delighted with the cabinets on the bottom instead of
drawers. It's absolutely right for me. I would never have found the
perfect buffet in a store. 

 

  

 

 

Cherry Sideboard
I do not do much ordering online. I hesitated for a long time before I
placed the order. I think the thing that convinced me was an online
comment from someone in Camarillo, CA who had visited your shop in the
summer to see what it was, then ordered and received their furniture
here, less than an hour from our home in Ojai. When I paid the full
amount at the outset, a couple of my relatives questioned my wisdom.
However, having conversed with Kendall on the phone and by e-mail and
having read everything I could find about you on the internet, I felt
quite confident that it would turn out all right and that we would
receive what we wanted. I was not at all disappointed.

 

 

Custom Shelves - Buffet
My daughter who lives nearby is amazed at how perfect the buffet is
in our dining room. I haven't had much company in just two weeks, but
the one couple who came over for dinner admired it immediately. Thank
you so much for all your patience with my questions and changes. I
appreciate so much the customer service you provided. I am definitely a
perfectionist, so I am totally pleased with all the care you have taken
from planning to constructing to shipping and delivering the buffet.

I am totally happy to support a company like yours
which has sustainability at the core of its existence.

I am also glad to support the individual craftsmen. My father-in-law
has a complete wood shop on his farm where he and my husband have built
more simple furniture like tables, beginning with trees on the farm.
Therefore, my husband has a great appreciation for the craftsmanship of
the buffet.

Thank you for everything! I will definitely recommend your company if
the opportunity arises. The buffet is absolutely an advertisement for
you. I look forward to many years of admiring it in my dining room.  I
will not forget its source! 

Sincerely, G Peterson, Ojai, CA
