Because this is back-to-school time, most of the furniture sold in August and September is sort of disposable… you know what I meant, right? Even Kendall (I'm embarassed to say) had to make an emergency trip to Ikea to pick up a portable bookshelf for his dorm room.
Most people just assume that the furniture they buy is going to be on the curbside in 5-10 years. It's part of the "planned obsolescence" strategy which ensures furniture stores that future sales will be strong.
But quite honestly, here's the reason why: Heather's taken three orders today from repeat customers who love their Vermont made furniture. It's the real thing and there's nothing quite like it.
In an age when few things last for decades (let alone generations) we're proud to be selling Vermont made furniture and it seems only fair to back up our promise of quality with a lifetime guarantee.
If a lifetime guarantee on fine furniture is important to you, how 'bout letting us know on our Facebook?
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.
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!
The Vermont State Fair is located in Rutland,
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!
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

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
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.
