Hope everyone had a great thanksgiving! We just hauled a truck load of food donations over to the Concord Open Table after a very successful Turkey Trot! Many thanks to the 600+ runners who came out on Thanksgiving morning to the Concord Turkey Trot. It was a great opportunity to get outside and walk or run with the family before we eat a large and thankful dinner, all in the spirit of giving back to our local community. We lucked out with gorgeous weather which brought out walkers and runners of all ages and abilities, everyone just looking to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air of downtown Concord before the madness of the family meal. Wait, does everyone experience madness on Thanksgiving? Or is that just us and the minimum…

Fun Report, Random
We are proud to be recognized, once again, as the Best Furniture Store for Everyday in Boston. Thank you Boston Magazine for recognizing our locally sourced goods and terrific staff, pick up an issue on newsstands now to see for yourself! We had a spectacular time at the event held by Boston Magazine last night down in the Cruiseport. The seaport area is alive and thriving with all the new restaurants, and last night was a perfect night to mingle on the water with our local business community.

Colorful Ideas, Design Inspiration, Designers, Fun Report, Random
A shout out to my friend Lis over at blanksmith for exposing me to this gem! I will leave it up to you the reader, shall we classify this as "design inspiration", "designers", "the fun report", or maybe just "colorful"? Read on and then talk amongst yourselves, well talk to me too, I would love to hear it. I recently visited my brother and his girlfriend in Philly (I will leave the who picked a better city to live in debate out of this). We sat on the famed rocky stairs and counted how many people, in the span of twenty minutes or so, ran up the stairs and finished the climb by jumping up and down and throwing a celebratory fist pump. We counted 30, and then a school bus…

The Fun Report – Flakes Are Flying!

Fun Report
It's here - the snow that is. In full force. We love it! We shoveled and plowed to get into the office this am. [caption id="attachment_1608" align="alignleft" width="150" caption="The door is open! Come in for hot cocoa."][/caption] [caption id="attachment_1609" align="alignright" width="150" caption="(Jonathan, a.k.a. skeleton crew)"][/caption] Yes, we have a bit of a skeleton crew today but our stores are now open and ready for those who feel like a casual stroll through a furniture store. Perfect timing because our big January promotion started yesterday.     So do some sledding, build an awesome snowman, have some cocoa and then bundle up later this afternoon and check out our Sale. We promise, no lines today!

The Fun Report – Let it Snow!

Fun Report
Have you heard the news? Snow in the forecast for later this week. Yay! This is one of those topics that splits all New Englanders right down the middle. There are those who love and those who despise the snow. I revert right back into a ten year old and get excited at the mere thought of the tiny white flakes. There are others, you know who you are, who think "Ugh. My car needs to be cleaned off, my commute is going to stink, my gloves have a hole in them, my long underwear doesn't fit properly under my suit..." Ok, I understand that it takes a bit longer to get to work on those snowy days (trust me, I have an hour commute as it is anyway). It…
