Thank you for your ongoing support of our small green business. Because of you, we were able to grow Vermont Woods Studios this year, even as we struggled to compete with online giants. Your customer reviews & word of mouth are our secret sauce and we are grateful. Here are some highlights of your impact at Vermont Woods Studios in 2018.
We Planted Over 5000 Trees
Social & Environmental Mission Progress
Most customers choose VWS because they want to know their purchase is helping a good cause. Besides keeping Vermont’s tradition of fine furniture-making alive, we also have a commitment to environmental conservation & community support. Here’s what we did to demonstrate that:
It may only last a brief and fleeting moment but for now it is true. As a small business we have to turn a profit. Wayfair does not. They will post about a $500 Million dollar loss this year. In spite of our struggles to compete with them, Wayfair has forced us to improve & be the very best we can. For that we are grateful.
We Kept Focusing on Customer Love
We know how fortunate we are to have customers like you, who share our values. From our start, customer happiness has always been our top priority. Unlike many other online furniture stores, we can honestly say our customer reviews are excellent. You don’t have to rely on our own Reviews page. Check out independent 3rd party review sites like Google, Facebook, Yelp and Sitejabber.
We Welcomed Jake Friend & Sophie Rabe to the VWS Team
Once again, thank you for your continued support of our small green business. We wish you a happy & prosperous 2019. Please come visit us at our Stonehurst showroom one day. We’d love to meet you.
She is a CEO who brakes for salamanders, has bottle-fed rescued squirrels and spent her vacation building furniture for a rural school in Costa Rica. She believes in the future and in the people who will build it. A former distance-learning professor at Tulane University with a master’s in environmental health & safety, she turned an interest in forest conservation and endangered species into a growing, local business. She delivers rainforest statistics at breakneck speed, but knows how to slow down and appreciate the beauty of a newly finished piece of heirloom furniture.
