According to Webster, an heirloom is " something of special value handed on from one generation to another." We see this often in our business, and also our families.
Through time, we receive emails from customers who got their furniture from dad, they still have and love it. Most plan on handing it down.
The pieces made today are all hand signed by the maker and who it was commissioned for, and we fully expect they will be handed down as well.
We also have some antiques and memorobilia that were handed down from our families. We have spoon collections, needlework along with china and lamps. These, too, we are planning on handing down.
But probably the most overlooked heirloom that we were given is our education and business philosophy. The skills my husband learned growing up in the family business is part of our success today. Does it have special value? Absolutely!
