What a fine selection of primitives for your home, wonderful painted antiques & collectibles, Holiday items, etc. If you are looking for-that special gift, want to start your Christmas shopping or seeking something to add to your own collection . . This is the place!

Fredericksburg Historic Home Show

Tomorrow is the last day of the Historic Home and Designer Craftsman Show. There was a great group of American artists in the show and we had a great group of buyers come through the show. I even talked to an Architect from California interested in period style kitchens. My salesman sample kitchen was also I big hit. I will be taking it to display at 2 more shows in the next 3 weeks. Check our Events page on our web site for my last 2 show dates of 2011.

Check out this great kitchen project near Boston - New Old Country Farmhouse



This is a great project that we did near Boston. The client wanted a David T. Smith kitchen but was concerned about the cost and hassle of doing a handmade kitchen long distance so she tried to find a local kitchen company to do it. No luck. So she finally called me at the last minute to talk about the project.

It was a large project, kitchen, 2 pantries, bathrooms, and laundry. She sent us drawings, we had a few Web Meetings, and we drew up the project and made our deal. The next day we flew to Boston to make final measurements. We were a little shocked when we got there, because the house was 90% complete waiting for the kitchen. She had almost waited too long.
