Can you imagine a day where popular shows like Antique Roadshow and American Pickers have too few items to uncover for broadcast? We might not be far off.
It used to be poor and middle-class families that carried the most rugged heirloom items; passing from generation to generation, but today our low and middle-income houses buy cheap, throwaway items that last only a few years. The resolution is to then purchase another cheap throwaway to suffice for a couple more years.
America will find a day where “the people,” meaning the general populous– the box store shoppers, the corporate victims– will awaken to what they’ve become, a tool to enrich a select few percent with no moral bounds and profit margins gleaming in their eyes.
The price, the catch to my spiel, and a good point nonetheless.
The truth is the cost of most furniture at box stores is CHEAP compared to Manchester Wood, sometimes even a ¼ of the listed tag price – BUT, it isn’t solid wood. It’s particleboard, or another cheap concoction that’s not only poor quality for you, but for the environment as well with endless amounts ending up in landfills across the country.
At Manchester Wood we make products that are still holding in great condition from the beginning years of our inception. A loyal customer base that expresses their excitement on our heirloom quality, furniture that one day we hope arrives on an antique show.
We produce all our furniture with solid wood, cut from trees not far from our homes. Providing longevity and diversity—you can even paint and re-work our furniture, a cheap particleboard item gives you little to work with.
There are a million reasons why you should buy American made, and why you should buy furniture from Manchester Wood. We’ll end it on the price discussion, as we understand that weighs heavy on decisions, especially in a tough economy…
If you buy a product a ¼ the price of a Manchester Wood product, not only will you not get solid wood, but you’ll also get an item that you’ll easily have to replace several times over. We believe if you buy our product, in the long run it saves you a substantial amount of money, and a commitment to quality, responsibility for environment, and socially, as we enter an era of unmasking those placing much of America in unrest.
