Take a step back in time

A classic Gateleg Table with old world charm

A little history on Gateleg Tables
In colonial days, gateleg dropleaf tables were popular because they saved space. American gateleg tables followed early seventeenth-century English prototypes. They always had two swinging legs to support the hinged dropleaf ends, yet the shape of the tabletop varied. This table has an oval top, but square, round, and rectangular tops were also common. This table can be considered a departure from the traditions of the Jacobian style - it heralds the approach of the William and Mary style in eighteenth-century America.

Fall Colors at Keeping Good Company

Even though we haven't felt like we've had much of a summer, fall items are starting to arrive at Keeping Good Company. Although sensitive to the issue of the end of summer, fall colors are definitely a symbol of Vermont. Day by day, we'll introduce sunflowers, pumpkins and witches to help inspire you with the decorating of your home. We are delighted to showcase Byers Carolers Witches, for those of you who are collectors. Stop in for a little inspiration and to say hello!

A New Member of the KGC family!

August is here and so is little Isabella!

On August 4th at 1:46 pm, Chelsea had a healthy baby girl. Isabella Evelyn Audy weighed 7 lbs 9oz and was 20 inches long. Our customers have been so supportive as they watched Chelsea's belly grow over the past 9 months. Pam and Jeff are the proud grandparents so come in and visit and I promise they'll happily show you the pictures!
