A lot has been happening around here these past few months, and it has been quite some time since we’ve given our bloggers any updates. Here are some of the highlights:
In August we had to take a few personal days to move our daughter, Caitlyn, to North Dakota where she is attending college. This was a long drive, but a great chance to see areas of our country that we wouldn’t normally visit.
September was a busy month as we attended the Country Living fair in Columbus, Ohio. We love going to furniture shows and Country Living has always been our favorite, but this may be our last show for a while… We feel as though traveling from show to show keeps us away from our customers for too long. Considering we are custom builders, we need to spend a lot of time and attention with our customers.
In October, we received the amazing news that we were one of the “Pitch Your Product” winners. Pitch Your Product is a contest conducted by Country Living Magazine. This contest asks small business owners and artisans to showcase their American made products. We also found out that we are featured in the December/January issue of Country Living Magazine (page 129.)
Here is the table we pitched!
November was a crazy month, not only were we inundated with Christmas orders, we were working hard to finish our farmhouse tables that were due to our customers by Thanksgiving. We are so blessed for all of our business, especially in tough economic times. Not only were we working hard in the shop, but the office was a buzz chatting with Country Living Magazine about the details of the photo shoot that would take place here on our farm.
It has been a whirlwind around here these past few months, but we wouldn’t have it any other way!
This pretty much brings us up to date. Please check back for more blog posts… and leave comments; we love to know your thoughts!!
