remember these?


one of our pictures is in this months romantic homes magazine......with no credit of course....its in someones beautiful house....page 54... its in our barnwood version...... one was in the cover story in country living a couple of years ago too....
.we did these pictures for several years, mainly out east at wholesale shows....
...they started with a present son jon made me for christmas ...
....it was so neat,i knew it was a winner, we had the carpenters make some up for the store....julie worked for us then and she went to a big cash and carry and they sold like crazy....i think she sold 700 that weekend.!!!!..
then we did wholesale shows for a few years...and we sold them by mail for a few years....but our costs kept going up and another company had them made in china soooo much cheaper....so we quit...
hopefully every shabby romantic fan who ever came to the store has one....
lots of stores bought them too...which was so nice...
cant wait to see what he makes me this year..... no pressure jon!!

They are still pretty and it's neat to know your son Jon started the whole thing! did you at least get credit for the pic in the magazine?

no, but thats no biggie....it was in a house and not really presented as a product for sale....our cupboards have been in books and magazines too....
