Ray of Light through the Economic Clouds

Community and Boston
I am not sure if NPR has made any new radio programs recently or if, due to lack of funds, they are looping a series of repeats on the sad state of affairs that is the US economy. Either way, that, in combination with the shorter days and the holiday rush, left me feeling a little run down and bewildered. Well, Circle Shoppers and fellow proud Bostonians, time to buck up and turn those feelings around. Here is a small glimmer of hope published by Boston Magazine, a little upside of the down if you will. Circle is still here and thriving, helping to perpetuate a stronger localized economy. Hold your heads up high Boston, and keep on shopping, change is on the way. PS. Just in case you needed…

Do you mind if I gush a little more?

We are so proud of, well not so young, Max. The youngest Tubman of his generation has graduated from the University of Vermont against some insurmountable odds encountered this year. On top of that, he released his first independent documentary with its premiere screening taking place this past week up in Burlington, VT. Grads, parents and some other Furniture gurus all packed the house to support this budding young star. Also, no trip to any part of the country is complete without a furniture delivery. Peg and Rich delivered a beautiful American Leather sofa to a customer in Burlington. I often wonder, are all business owners this hands on? I mean, granted I am not an outsider, but that seems pretty cool to have the brains, brawn and beauty(!) behind…

Pretty In Pink

Events and Fundraisers, Media
Another October rolls around and its time for another great in store event at Circle Furniture's Cambridge location. The fifth annual Pink Party was the biggest turnout yet and we raised over five thousand dollars. Many thanks to those who rallied the extra leg to help put it together, Sarah, Ralph, Moise, Renee, Jonathan, Stephanie, Peg, Rich, Harold, Terri, Troy, Judy, Heather, Cindy and Martha. All proceeds go to the Ellie Fund, raising money for families to help support a loved one fighting breast cancer. Its a great cause and a fun night, and who doesn't love the color pink! We also met some new FABULOUS friends who share out love for the earth and this "new" trend everyone is calling green. Paula Keif and Leanne Schiller have started an…

Warming the Oven . . .

Design Inspiration
I know, we have not even hit Halloween yet, how can you start talking about Thanksgiving? The answer to that is easy, its my favorite holiday and its never too early to start planning the perfect meal. Its not just about the food, but the setting is important too! Having guests at your house this year? Its time to start thinking about a dining room table fit for you, your ever growing family and mother earth. Wood Top Care and Cleaning Information: No matter how tough these tables are, they are made from wood, and any table made from wood can be scratched or burned or dented. When in use, we recommend using trivets, placemats, and tablecloths to protect the top from plates, hot pans, dishes, etc. Darker finishes will…

Celebrating Sixty!

Random
So today marks a momentous occasion, Harold turns 60! Firstly, let me say a big happy birthday to one of the brothers behind this little family gig we call Circle Furniture. The Queen Bee supplied the steak tips and chicken, and Moise and Ralph manned the grill while managing the warehouse, these are men of many talents. This day in history, September 25th, also marks the writing of the Bill of Rights, groundbreaking on our very own Fenway Park, Chubby Checkers' "Twist" topped the charts (I believe Harold was old enough to partake in this one . . .) and Sandra Day O'Connor was sworn in as our first female supreme court justice. Harold himself has been making his own little dent in history as an active member of numerous…
