It is with a saddened heart that we report that we will be closing the Good Old Days in a couple months. We have made many friends and relationships with all of our customers and we are so glad we had the opportunity to serve our community in this way for the past 16 years.
We have been thinking of retiring for a while now but this last winter made us realize how much we really want to retire and move on with the next phase of our lives. We are certainly going to miss you, our devoted and steadfast customers who have supported us all these years. You have made the Good Old Days what it is today. Many of you have told us and have written in our comments book that this shop is unlike any other in the Country, and that it is your favorite shop to come to. It is comments like this that have kept us going all these years. It has truly been a great journey. We both learned so much, not only about the trade and business, but also about people. read more

The Windsor Chair, a lost art in craftsmanship

Chair Pennsylvania Fan Back Shield

When we first opened our shop, I knew we wanted to sell Windsor Chair. We have seen these at all the trade shows we have been attending but didn’t know much about them. So I set about researching Windsor chairs, how they are made. and what to look for in a good chair. To take this even further, I took a week long class and built a chair from scratch. When I say from scratch, I mean from a pile of firewood. No Joke! When I was done with this  week-long project I really respected and understood the effort that goes into making one of these chairs. read more
