New Sign of the Times

Vermont Furniture Store | A New Sign of the Times
A new handcrafted sign was just installed for Stonehurst, as our Vermont Furniture Store starts to come together.  Thanks to talented carver and sign maker, John McCarthy!

John McCarthy (of McCarthy Signs in Hinsdale) came by the other day to install the sign he’s been handcrafting for Stonehurst, our new Vermont furniture store.  What did you think? It’s a 3D wooden sign that John hand-carved.  What I love best about it is the level of detail he achieved in carving out the thumbprints that are the tops of the trees in our logo (Cheri Bryant is our logo artist and creator, by the way).  Pretty amazing precision, I say.  It’s hard to show off John’s talent online but if you’re in the neighborhood, stop by and have an up-close look.  Or take Market Survey of America’s word– his company was just voted Greater Brattleboro’s Best Sign Company.

Congratulations to John McCarthy of McCarthy Signs.  His company was just voted Greater Brattleboro’s Best Sign Company.
