Holiday Hours & Thank You!

Hello all! 

We hope that you had the greatest Christmas! This time of year is so great. Three major holidays in a row - what more could you ask for?!

We want to remind you of our holiday hours. Ever New Years we go to the cabin to unwind, relax, and focus on the year to come. Therefore we are closed a few extra days. 

Lastly, thank you so much for all your love and support in 2015. We would not be able to work as a family (and run away to the cabin together) if it was not for you and your support. You mean the world to us, really.

Thank you for 2015,
See you in the New Year!

Holiday Hours & Reminders

 There is still time to pick up some last minute gifts. The holiday decor in the antiques loft was just marked down. We also have a bunch of great gifts that give back to others in our gift shop. Read more here.

#4 - 

Our hours will be a little different over the next two weeks as we celebrate Christmas and New Years. Please refer to the image above. We are sorry for any inconveniences that this may cause you!

We hope that you have the best holiday season and get to spend it with the ones you love most, but more importantly, we hope that you know and understand the real reason and importance behind Christmas. 

Merry Christmas!

From our family, to yours!

Christmas Eve is ONE WEEK Away!

Can you believe we are only ONE WEEK away from Christmas Eve? And if you are anything like our family, the Christmas festivities start full force that day. This 60 degree weather is not helping me realize that Christmas is here either!

I don't know about you, but I still have a few people left on my shopping list. Stop by our Antiques Loft or Gift Shop to purchase a great and meaningful gift!

Also, do you still need a tree?

We still have a few trees left that are for sale BY DONATION ONLY! You can give whatever amount you feel led to give. $1 or $500 - It's up to you! 

Stop by today to finish up your last minute Christmas needs!

One Stop Holiday Shop!

The holiday season is upon us and starting this weekend things are officially full flung Christmas (although I know some of you already have Christmas decorations up!) Starting this Friday, we will be selling Christmas Trees to benefit JRMF. All profit goes to help send children to church camp. We will be offering a variety of trees. All the trees are freshly cut and come with a hole already drilled in the bottom. We also sell tree stands if you are in need of a new one! This Friday we will be open until 6:00 p.m.!

The holiday season is all about giving. Why not give a gift that helps benefit others? In our gift shop we have many great items for sale that benefit great organizations that are making big changes! 

One company is Mercy House. Through their Fair Trade items, we are able to sell great items that help benefit mothers and women from all over the world. Each item is handcrafted by these ladies and their name and location is attached to each item. Learn more about this organization here

This Christmas give gifts that promote global change!

Another great company that we support in our gift shop is Mothco. Below is a short description about this awesome company started by high-schoolers! Learn more about them here.

In addition to the shops mentioned above, we also sell beautiful pieces of woodwork that are all done by a good friend of ours. These pieces are all hand crafted and unique. They would make great Christmas presents!

Come stop by our gift shop as you shop and prepare for Christmas this year! We also offer many other gifts in addition to what is mentioned. 

This year for Christmas, buy gifts (and trees!) that give back! Double the amount of giving - it doesn't get better than that!

Chicken BBQ... Again!

Mark your calendars for Black Friday!

Ask and you shall receive! Our last chicken BBQ was such a great success and we had so many people ask us when we would be doing it again, that we are doing another chicken bbq on Black Friday!

Tickets are $4.

You may reserve your tickets, but reserved tickets will only be honored until 1:00pm.

Come visit us, have some chicken and Christmas shop in our little gift shop that supports several amazing organizations!

Black Friday will also be the first day of our Christmas Tree sale! All profits from this also goes towards JRMF!

Can't wait to see you there!

Preserving the Past

Roughly 5+ years ago our mill manager, Tyler, got his picture taken with the band that he was a part of in front of two doors that were a part of the old Train Depot that used to sit on Water Street in Lititz, PA. The Depot was tore down roughly 2 years ago. Just this past week he had the privilege of refinishing the first of five doors that were salvaged by a local couple. We are so very thankful for the opportunity that we have to help people maintain appreciation for what has come before us. 

Reclaimed is the way to go folks.

 Below is the finished door hanging in the new owners' home. It looks awesome!

Thank you very much!

This past Saturday was the Grand Opening of our Antiques Loft. Thank you so very much to everyone that came out. It was a great success!

 Along with our grand opening, we also held our first annual Chicken BBQ to raise money for JRMF. It was definitely a learning experience, but again, thanks to you guys, it went better than we expected. We sold out of chicken by 11:30 am, bought more chicken, and sold out again by 1:00pm! (The BBQ was suppose to go until 3:00pm.)

Along with the day, we also did a $100 gift certificate give away! 


Angie Strouse!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone that came out to support us!!! We appreciate you more than you know!

An Order Feature and An Order Update

Hey all!

Check out the table below that Tyler just finished!

This table is made from Oak planks. It has, what we call, a Breadboard top AKA instead of having the boards run straight from end to end, we cap each end with a 4" board. The legs are more petite, at 2.5" x 2.5", and are clean-cut and not as rustic. This table is finished with Antique Flat which is more of a matte finish. 

Now for a flooring update! Remember the blog post from that week that outlined how we make flooring? If not, you can read about it here. Well...

The Weatherboard is being delivered by our friend Nelson R Sensing Trucking to it's new home on Long Island. 

Weatherboard seems to be the favorite floor of the season. We just received a rush 2,000 sq ft order from our friend Todd Auker Construction that we need to crank out in just a few short weeks!
