Home show season! Lots of roll out shelves to showcase!

We are heading into what we affectionately call “Home Show Season” here at the shop.  This means that from January through April we spend a lot of our time out and about meeting potential customers and exhibiting our products.  We also get the opportunity to see many familiar faces as past customers stop in to say “hi” at the different shows.  It is wonderful and exhausting!  For those that have seen our exhibit, you know we set up a big [...]

July 2015


Ooh Ahh   America’s Independence Day is coming up. Fireworks are the traditional mode of celebration. Ever wonder why that is? Turns out that celebrating with fireworks is a tradition as old as our country. The first such fireworks display took place on July 4, 1777 in Philadelphia, despite still being in the midst of the Revolutionary War against Britain. It was intended to boost morale. Funny that with all of the inventions, advancements, and technology that has come about since [...]

Junk Drawer Kitchen organization seems to fall short where junk drawers are concerned. It’s often a bottomless drawer of random things from all over the house that have ended up in the kitchen! While it might be tempting to simply ignore this space, it’s a great place to add some customization to keep organized.  We’ve developed the “un-junk” drawer. We find that having a specific place for the items you really want to store in the kitchen keeps the drawer from [...]

Grilling Hacks

  Grilling season has official begun. The internet is loaded with more recipes than one could ever hope to try. Pinterest is the perfect place to find some grilling inspiration…and waste a couple of hours. We love to grill and don’t let the snow or the mosquitos keep us from cooking outdoors. One of my least favorite household chores is cleaning the grill. I use the nifty ammonia in garbage bag method, which does work, but still it is a [...]
