We are! I guess it's true what they say: "Time sure flies when you're having fun"! This Thursday, March 15th, Mom and I will be celebrating 23 years in business. Well, I wasn't invested full-time back then, but I can remember mom and dad working on building the studio showroom and how cool it was for my mom to be opening up The Cabinet Studio just blocks from the high-school. I was so proud of her, and still am today! She began the journey with the mission to give her Windsor and Essex-County community an option for high-end cabinets and quality service. 23 years later and she hasn't wavered. The only difference now, is that we serve many more communities and not only do we sell beautiful cabinetry and give the best quality of service and design but we also offer North-America's FIRST VOC-Free Kitchen!
As we reminisce of what has happened over more than 2 full decades in business, the biggest constant is our amazing loyal and incredibly fun clients. We want to thank each and every one of you for helping us enjoy every day "at the job". It's because of you that we sincerely love our career and our business! Thank you so much for referring us to your friends and family when you know they are thinking about renovating their kitchen or moving into a new home. We sincerely appreciate all of the kind words and testimonials we've received from you throughout the years, not only in writing but in your sweet emails, phone calls and messages letting us know how much you are enjoying working in your kitchen. THAT is what makes us spring out of bed each morning!
Also, a BIG thank you goes out to all of our colleagues, interior designers, suppliers, trades and carpenters that make our projects just that much better! We are grateful to have been blessed with amazing carpenters in each city we have travelled to for our clients, but we want to give a special shout out to the two guys that have been our rocks both here in Windsor & Essex-County and in Michigan. Our local clients have been using Perry and Larry to install their kitchens for decades. These two gentleman are true carpenters, not just installers. They have such an eye for design and they care for each of our clients and their homes the same way we do. We can't say enough about these two! Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication throughout the years. It doesn't go unnoticed or unappreciated! We love you!
We also want to thank our dear, Bobbi! For our clients that have received a hand-drawn pencil perspective of your kitchen, you know how valuable she is! Sometimes computer software just can't get the fine details or express the feeling in a Kitchen, so that's when we go to Bobbi to work her magic to really show what the finished project will look like. Here is just one example of her beautiful work!
Lastly, but certainly not least, we want to thank our family, friends and fans, who have supported us all these years. We've been blessed to have such an amazing family and support network. Dad and Jenn, we love you and thank you for everything you do for us in and out of the business. Your support and encouragement makes our days flow easier! To our friends and fans who like and comment on all the things we post on social media, we thank you. Sometimes we question if any of the stuff we post is as interesting to others as it is to us, and then you start engaging with us online and it get's our juices flowing again!
We are so honoured and humbled to be able to wake up each morning and get to do what we love! Thank you for a fabulous 23 years! Mom anticipates retiring at 93, so she definitely has another 23 years in her!! Cheers to the next chapter!
We plan to post to our Blog at least every Monday, so please check back. Until then we encourage you to come over to Facebook or Instagram and connect and engage with us there this week. Share with us what you'd like to see on the Blog next. Also, if you know someone that's thinking of a new kitchen, please share our page with them. We would love to help them create a beautiful non-toxic Kitchen that they will love for years to come.
Mom and I really enjoy staying active in the community. As most of you know the Charity that has the biggest piece of our heart is Crohn's and Colitis Canada, so if you stay tuned to this blog we will be sharing all the happenings in Windsor & Essex-County for our Crohn's community. You will also find posts on events that either we will be attending, we are passionate about, or events that our clients are involved with. Thanks and hugs, Leigh & T
