We're celebrating our Made in America Holiday Shopping Challenge success with a store-wide 15% Off Fine Furniture Sale. This has been such an exciting week for us, with the ABC World News crew spotlighting our efforts to get friends and relatives to "buy American" this Christmas shopping season. Manjula and Dennis decided to share our revelry with a big sale– it's store-wide from tomorrow until December 13.
Don't forget to watch us (or set your DVR) tomorrow night on ABC World News with Diane Sawyer and then join with all of us who are promising to buy at least some American made gifts this Christmas– and be sure to get counted on Facebook!
As a company that sells exclusively American made furniture (Vermont-made, actually) we're psyched to get this level of traction behind our push to create more American jobs. As consumers, we have the power and what better time than Christmas (when we're each spending an average of $700 on gifts) to excercise that power!
This Saturday, November 12 Vermont Woods Studios Fine Furniture Store will be running a fundraiser for The Nature Conservancy's Plant A Billion Trees campaign. 100% of our profits on that day will be donated to The Nature Conservancy.
Forest conservation has always been a fundamental part of our green mission. Although Vermont's forests are among the best managed in the world we realize that globally, deforestation is one of the top environmental problems facing the planet today.
In fact, the world’s tropical rainforests are disappearing at a rate of one football field every second! This deforestation pours carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and contributes more to air pollution and global climate change than exhaust from the entire transportation sector. Hard to believe isn't it? Furthermore, forest animals and plants are being lost at a rate of over 100 species/day due to deforestation.
So, if you're planning a fine furniture purchase or you know someone else who is, please consider buying your furniture this Saturday. Put your purchasing power to work and help us use green commerce to change the world!
It’s been over two weeks since Hurricane Irene blew through Vermont destroying homes, businesses, roads and wildlife habitats. Since then Vermonters and good samaritans from throughout the region have been working around the clock to rebuild and restore the area. I’m amazed at how fast the roads are being rebuilt. Route 9 between Brattleboro and Bennington was ripped to smitherenes but, with the help of the National Guard and others, our incredible road crews have already gotten it passable. Shannon said she even got to drive on a newly paved stretch of Route 9 on her way in today.
But there is much work left to do. As with all disasters the news media moves on, but so many people are still in need of assistance. At Vermont Woods Studios Furniture we are trying to think of ways to help. One thing we are doing is donating 100% of profits from all furniture sold online or in our showroom this Saturday, September 17. If you have been thinking about buying furniture, this would be a great time to do it! All of our Shaker Furniture is on sale that day; we have 6 Dining Room Sets on Sale that can be installed in your home for Thanksgiving Dinner plus (how cool is this?) our donation will be matched by local employer Entergy-VY. Talk about leveraging your hard-earned money. So it could be a win for you and others– in a big way. If the promotion is successful, we’ll sponsor similar events periodically to continue to help out where we can.
Thanks for your continued well-wishes as Vermonters work to rebuild after the storm.
All of our Vermont made Dining Room Furniture is on sale starting today and going through next Tuesday, June 21.
Just in time for summer! Take a few minutes out of your busy BBQ, pool-side and tanning schedule to check the sale out.
Now is the perfect time to order handmade, heirloom quality dining room furniture as it takes about 6-10 weeks to build. While you're outside enjoying the sun, we'll be crafting your furniture and then delivering it just about when you're moving dinner from the picnic table to the dining room.
Manjula finished posting our new American Made Bedroom Furniture Sale this morning.
This week's sale offers up to 20% off, depending on how many pieces of furniture you buy (minimum is 3 for the 20% discount).
If you've been thinking about indulging in a new bedroom set that will look gorgeous and last forever, check out the sale!
Manjula stayed up late last night getting our new Shaker Style Furniture Sale up and running on the website. I think Shaker furniture is our most popular style.
We have six different Shaker collections and all are handmade here in Vermont using sustainably harvested, natural solid wood:
- New England Shaker Furniture
- Classic Shaker Furniture
- Vermont Shaker Furniture
- American Shaker Furniture
- Renfrew Shaker Furniture
- Modern Shaker Furniture
As with all of our furniture, they have a lifetime guarantee. From today until May 3, 2011 you save 10% off any single Shaker piece and 15% off 2 or more pieces. White glove shipping and delivery are included in the price. Check it out!
Today was planned to be the end date for our Black Friday – Cyber Monday Furniture Sale, but we've had a number of customers calling to say they're still working on decision making.
Don't stress. Buying fine handmade furniture is an important investment and we want you to have the time to work out all the details. We've extended the sale for a week, until midnight on Monday December 7, 2009. Give us a call with any questions you have and we'll do our best to make the purchasing process easy and enjoyable!
