Re-purposed Lighting

At Harvest, we are lucky enough to have a resident lamp builder to supply us with one-of-a-kind fixtures made from re-purposed items. Our shop owner, Karsten, is a master lighting craftsman, and has fashioned lamps from old surveying tri-pods, vintage spools, reclaimed lumber, antique pottery and the like. We are always inspired by creative craftspeople throughout the country and wanted to share some unique fixtures from a company called Conant Metal and Light in Burlington, Vermont. Keep up the good work guys!

School's Out For Summer!!!

I'll never forget how we celebrated the beginning of summer at my house. Early in the morning of the last day of school, my Dad would shock us out of bed by blasting Alice Cooper's "School's Out For Summer" on all speakers throughout the house. We'd jump out of bed and air-guitar our way down the hall to the living room to rock out in celebration with the whole family!
