Well, we finally got a dusting of snow in Vernon, Vermont today so it’s a White Christmas after all. Maybe I’m just getting old but it seems like we used to have a lot more snow when I was a kid. I dug out this photo of a White Christmas 16 years ago. That’s my Dad (Uncle Bob to most everyone) driving his beloved team of Percherons, Prince and Tony. Every Christmas we would pile into the sled with the kids bundled up so much they could hardly hang to our hay bale seats. When Dad took the reins and got the horses moving we all hung onto each other for dear life. But after the first initial whiplash we huddled together laughing hysterically. And the flasks of Baileys came out to keep the adults (who may not have been adequately bundled) warm.
Those were fun times and the moments Dad lived for. We take time to reminisce about Dad’s sleigh rides and hay rides every Christmas. How about you? What are your favorite Christmas memories? Share a photo or comment on our Facebook.
And speaking of a White Christmas… I just saw a most appropriate post on Cindy Flora’s Facebook (courtesy of Gypsy’s Melting Pot):
I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
But when the white’s gone
We’ll drink the red
Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Storewide year-end sales are commonly associated with large clearance discounts because the products do not pass a necessary quality check. Another reason stores have sales at the end of the year is because they need to clear out their merchandise to make room for next year’s style.
The Vermont Woods Studios Winter Holiday Storewide Sale is a little different from your average year end sale. We are not putting our furniture on sale because they are “seconds.” From January 1 to December 31 each year, we sell heirloom quality wood furniture that is crafted to last for generations of use (backed by a lifetime guarantee). That being said, we also aren’t trying to make room in a warehouse for next years style. We actually don’t have a warehouse, because each piece of furniture you buy is crafted just for you! As for style, Vermont fine furniture is timeless. It is naturally beautiful, and will never go out of style.
