2012 Earth Day Party in The Woods

Have and Earth Day Lunch and join us at our Green Up Your Workplace Challenge on Facebook




Since Earth Day is on Sunday this year, we decided to have our Vermont Woods Studios Earth Day party today.  Here are a few photos of the crew indulging in local, organic food from The Works, a cafe, bakery and deli in Brattleboro.


We love the food and the people at the Works but we also like their green brand.





The Works Deli in Brattleboro VT was built with reclaimed barnwood and other recycled materials




This sign on the wall at the back of the deli tells where all the recycled materials that make up the store came from.  Furniture and cabinetry were made by our friend Chad Woodruff of Woodruff Custom Furniture here in Vernon, VT.  Chad used old tractor seats and scythe handles for chairs.

The vintage steel lighting at the Works was salvaged from from an old amusement park in Rye, New York. 

The menu is written on an old slate chalkboard reclaimed from Northfield Mount Hermon School, in Northfield MA.

They just used a lot of imagination in designing and building the Works and everyone in Brattleboro loves going there for the good green vibe.


So here's another idea for our "Greening Up Your Workplace" Challenge on Facebook– have an Earth Day lunch with natural food from a local restaurant or deli.





Lonely TV Stand Looking For a Super Bowl Party to Attend

February 1st, 2012 by Peggy Farabaugh

Super-bowl-tvWe have a Modern American TV-Media Console in the showroom that's looking for a Super Bowl party to attend.  I think he's an avid Patriots fan but that could change. 


Most of our American furniture is made to order but– just in time for the Super Bowl–this one's all set and ready to roll. It's on sale too!  10% off or 15% off if you purchase an additional piece of furniture for your living room or office. 


Plus if you tell Rebecca and Shannon you found it on my blog, they'll give you an additional $50 discount.  Heck, Rebecca would probably even send some homemade chili along with it!  It's worth asking anyway.
