Honoring Small Business and Selling Local - A New Adventure for Rehoboth Farm

A new adventure in the new year!
 We have been astonishingly successful selling nationally, through our Etsy shop.  Interior decorators, small business owners, and everyday customers have purchased our handcrafted products from all over the U.S.  
Having a national customer base is an honor and we are very grateful. We can humbly look back on 550 sales in the last 2 years and see the hand of a generous God.  So blessed.
Our reputation is established, our style is clear. And now we feel it is time to shift our focus. 
We're going local! 
 I know this seems backwards for a small business. Typically it is the ambition to "expand" outward.  But, that's not our story. 
Our hope is to always stay small enough to honor handmade, handbuilt, and handcrafted design.  One opportunity we have to convey this passion is by starting  a "local shop" ...a place to fill with our one-of-a-kind treasures, to sell larger items too cumbersome to ship, and to build a customer base within our own community. 
For now, our "shop" is a booth.
  In the Mckenzie Antique Mall
 It's not much yet, just a start. But, we are proud to have a home for all of our handmade inventory.  We will continue to fill it with inspiring pieces as the seasons pass and look forward to feedback from our local customers in this new adventure for Rehoboth Farm.
Here is s peek at the new booth!
