This Veterans Day, take some time out of your schedule to sit in silence and think about the Veterans who have made huge sacrifices to protect our communities, lifestyles, families, and freedoms. Take another minute to think about where these Veterans are now, and the lives they are living. Lets make an effort to take care of these people who have worked hard to take care of us!
From November 9th to November 12th, Vermont Woods Studios is honoring these soldiers with our Veterans Day Fine Furniture Sale, where most collections are 15% off store-wide. For the 2nd year in a row, 20$ from every order will go to the Adopt a Soldier program, and help a Veteran in need. Read more about our participation in this program at our blog from last year.
Or– read more about some interesting volunteer opportunities listed on the Veteran’s Administration website. You can honor veterans by attending Welcome Home events, helping homeless Vets, donating to Wounded Warriors or contributing to any number of activities listed on the VA site.
As always, our furniture is 100% American made–this helps keep money in our communities and helps to preserve the American lifestyle that these soldiers have fought so hard to protect.
Again, a huge thank you to our military for all of the sacrifices they have made for us.

Veterans Day is a time to pause and thank those who served or are serving in our armed forces and support the military. As part of the celebration, Vermont Woods Studios ran a four day benefit sale to raise money to donate to the Adopt a Soldier Program. With $20 of every sale being collected, we are proud to announce that we were able to raise $350 towards adopting Sgt. Peter A. Avila’s family.
Sgt. Peter A. Avila is currently serving with the 25th Infantry Division, 3rd Brigade, D Company located in Hawaii. Peter began in the military as a Marine and now is a US Army Soldier. He has served four tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan and will soon be deployed again. Peter’s wife Crystal is suffering from kidney disease and debilitating complications. Peter and Crystal’s two little boys (Kenan and Kaleb) and a baby girl (Deanna) are growing up without their father’s presence nor do they have family members living close enough to assist in times of need. Many other military families are in similar circumstances, serving their country without complaint.
The Adopt A Soldier website provides easy ways to help, such as:
Thank you to everyone who purchased from us or donated to the Adopt a Soldier Program during Veterans Day this year. And a big thank you to all of our military personnel! That staff at Vermont Woods Studios appreciates the sacrifices and dedication of our service men and women.
