Karen at My Colonial Home ( http://mycolonialhome.blogspot.com ) has given a challenge to all who care to join, so I am going to share how we got our name.
I started blogging in July 2008, so when we moved our store, it was only natural to want to start a blog for Cabin In The Woods.
For many years, we had a country shop and when we moved to the mountains, we moved our shop to a downtown location. After a few years there, we wanted to cut back on the confinement of being in a shop every day, so we decided to relocate our business to our home, a cabin down a dirt path in the woods.
The downstairs was perfect for a shop, but since we were in a log cabin in a secluded, wooded place, the old name of our business just didn't work...Giles and I talked for days about a suitable name for our business and location...Finally, he wanted to change the name to "Cabin In The Woods" because that's what and where we were.
It's not a really old cabin, but it's log and stone and perfect for us! We finished the downstairs so the inside looked like a log cabin and our goodes fit perfectly there.
Although we closed our retail shop a couple of years ago, we still use the store space for storage between shows and also for some of my creating.
Who knows, maybe one day, I'll reopen the store with limited days and hours just so we can get to see our long-time customers more often.
Thanks Karen for the challenge...We love our "Cabin In The Woods" and are proud to share how we got our name.
