Recently we took our daughters to see Finding Dory. It was adorable, of course.
I am not sure why, perhaps because I can be odd at times, the movie had me thinking about the things we search for. Many of us search for love, search for a good book, we try to find a good career, or that perfect mattress.
John first began working with leather because he was searching for something. He was walking around one of the local Kentucky art fairs, much like the ones we participate in now, and he asked if someone could make something custom. The artist scoffed at the question. This response surprises me even more now than it did then.
Well, John being the industrious man that he is, decided to make it himself. Had he known then the amount of work involved in leatherworking at the time, I am not sure he would have made the same choice. However, I am glad it is a choice he made.
That is so much of what we do. People come to us because they are trying to find something. Often it is furniture. There is that lonely corner that needs something, but it needs to be customized to fit. The dining room is desperate for a slab table, but the checkbook says $8000 is too much for a dining room table. Your grandmother left behind this beautiful bedroom set, something you want to use and love, but it is missing a headboard.
That is what we do, sometimes the thing you are looking for just can’t be found. If you are here, you found us.
We will custom match the color of the wood to your grandmother’s furniture. We will create something to fit the size, design, and budget you desire. That purse, wallet, chair, journal, that thing you think, “if it was just like this”, we got it, because we will make it.
These are the things I think about while eating popcorn with a bouncy three-year-old in a crowded theater. But, hey, when you’re you are a small business owner, it never stops.
