Adam Nudd-Homeyer writes: Since the "Grand Opening" of our new location in the old Sandwich General Store, we have had an incredible and heartwarming amount of interest and support from our community and visitors alike. Including our opening day on June 21, our hosting of the annual summer trip of the Guild of NH Woodworkers the following weekend, and daily traffic, we have greeted nearly 300 visitors in our first two weeks--and sold a few chairs, mugs, t-shirts, and bumper stickers as well!
Although we still have some machinery left to get into final place and operation, and the museum exhibit remains in the works, we have all told made the transition to our new home with few hiccups, and have lost little time as we have juggled production. Our biggest challenge remains working to get ahead of the curve on our orders so that we can retain some regular floor models! We have also experienced a new and unexpected delight: using our storefront to generate exposure for the beautiful work of local craftspeople such as Suzanne Weil, Steve Sabella, and David Gagnon, and also publicly share the important partnerships we have nurtured with Chilton Furniture, the Sabbathday Lake Shaker Community, the Mount Lebanon Shaker Museum, and the American Chestnut Foundation. We have a lot to pay forward, and it's wonderful to find ourselves positioned so well to do so now.
Also amazingly, we have made the adjustment to regular work hours, opening our doors to the public from 10 - 4 Tuesday through Saturday, and whenever else we happen to be at work (almost always). Please stop in and see the life that has come back to the historic old general store in downtown Sandwich, and learn about the the many lives of Tappan Chairs in our great little town!
