So one of my locally sold chairs made its way to Nashville, TN and from there into a local shop for showing off. Mike Wolfe from American Pickers showed up and they got an awesome picture of Mike sitting in one of my chairs.

That is great…! my wife and I were in Nashville back in May doing the Tennessee Art & Craft Show and we had made it a point to visit the Antique Archeology Store. My wife had a difficult time getting me to leave because the place was so awesome.
I wish I would have known about your vintage lumber store because I would have been there too. Every time we do a show out of town I go to any local lumberyards that carry unique lumber. I asked people at the TACA show about lumberyards and unfortunately no one mentioned your place…Maybe next time.

Greg, the vintage lumber store is not mine, I live near Rochester, NY. The chair was passed on from the original customer to their son, who lives in Nashville, he knows the owner of the vintage store so took the chair in to show it off. If I ever get to Nashville I hope to see both places as well.
