Telling our Story

Tidbit:  Conrad Grebel will be featuring a new wall display at our 220 Elm showroom next month at the International Home Furnishings Show in High Point, NC.  We are a company whose business model of community is unique.  We will be telling the story of our community at the show in pictures and words.  You can see our artwork below of what that wall will look like.  We hope to see everyone there!

Fun Amish Fact:  As gardens and crops are being harvested I am reminded of the simple things.  Not long ago I had a young Amish boy who works in our finish shop travel with me to a furniture store.  I wanted to give him a tour of the larger retail world where our furniture is marketed.  On the way home from that experience he remembered that that day was the first day they’d be picking sweet corn from their garden for that evening’s supper.  He smiled and his eyes lit up as he turned to me and said, “I’ll be chowing like crazy tonight!”  His excitement for the evening wasn’t the latest video game or TV show…it was time around the table with his family “chowing” sweet corn.  I appreciate the innocence of youth!
