Sturbridge Yankee Workshop Features Sustainably Forested USA-Made Pine Signs

Oct 21 2013, 11:26am CDT | by PR.com

Say it all with a simple phrase. These charming, and often funny, knotty pine signs at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop feature witty phrases and are made right here in the USA with sustainably forested pine lumber.

Portland, ME, October 21, 2013 --(PR.com )-- Feeling the need for something new to hang on the bathroom wall? Perhaps something that will offer a twist on your current style while providing a bit of charm as well. Sustainably forested and crafted in a small town in Wisconsin, the line of knotty pine signs featured at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop are made with domestic pride in mind. Not to mention plenty of tongue in cheek humor thrown in for good measure.

Another important feature about these signs is that they are all finished with water based stains. Water based paints and stains, unlike enamels or urethane, do not release toxic chemicals as they evaporate. In addition, water based stains can be cleaned up with soap and water – eliminating the need for hazardous waste disposal.

Now that the environmentally friendly aspects about these signs has been covered straight away, take a look at the charming imagery and text featured, with seasonal, thematic, and ‘just for fun’ options. To start, the holiday season brings about a multitude of news signs such as the Autumn Greetings Sign. Bright red stain is complemented by scrolling font and falling leaves, including oak and maple, in white paint. Sturbridge mentioned that the beveled edge and slightly rubbed finish give this sign a time-worn appeal.

Enhancing the magic of the holiday season, the At Christmas Time sign will make guests smile as they sip hot cocoa on a cold winter night. Speaking of cocoa, the Sleigh Rides sign is reminiscent of gently falling snowflakes and bright smiles on children’s faces. For a simple display, the Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas sign is sure to delight. Wood grain and knot details enhance the handmade nature of the wall art.

Nostalgia, a sentimental longing for the past, was once described as a medical condition during the Romantic period in history. Now, the word is used to describe that aching, yearning feeling one gets when reminiscing about fond events or life experiences. Looking at this next category of signs will create that same sense of nostalgia for many people. The Bath Sign, a Sturbridge Yankee Workshop favorite, features vintage inspired font alluding to days of yore when public bath houses were more commonplace. Grab some soap and bring a towel, for bathing does not come cheap. A Sturbridge favorite, the Hokey Pokey Sign, really must be seen for full appreciation of its charm.

It is apparent when looking at all of these signs that they truly offer rustic, Americana charm that is hard to come by these days. When looking for quality made in the USA products, including these charming knotty pine signs, look no further than Sturbridge Yankee Workshop.

Survey: US gas prices fall 9 cents a gallon to $3.58 in largest drop this year

CAMARILLO, Calif. – A national survey finds the average U.S. price of regular-grade gasoline has plummeted 9 cents a gallon over the past two weeks to $3.58. That’s the largest drop this year. Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg said Sunday the decrease came despite a rise in crude-oil prices. Lundberg says U.S. refiners, enjoying plentiful supplies, aggressively cut wholesale prices to chase sales. Midgrade averages were $3.78, and premium averages were $3.93. The U.S. average retail di ...

By Justin Polce:The second quarter sell-off experienced by Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ:WFM) stood out to me. The company reported earnings per share 7% off estimates, and a consequent 30% drop has followed since.
