I have collected Treenware from The Salem Collection for many years, way before I ever had a shoppe! I have always loved the fact that it is MADE IN THE USA!....yep just down the road in North Carolina! Their company grew quite a bit and they expanded into selling imports along with their Treenware that has ALWAYS been American made, but as with many companies these past couple of years, their financial state became unstable and they had to shift gears and reorganize. They've recently downsized and have gone back to the basics, and I am told that, at this time, they don't even have plans of making their wonderful pumpkins this year!....they are really back to the basics! In the meantime, the shelves reserved for Treenware at Winter Willow Primitives had become quite bare as there hadn't been a shipment in months! But alas, Treenware production over at The Salem Collection has resumed!.... and today I received a shipment from them, mostly bowls, but those shelves are once again full of wonderful American made Salem Treenware, and I am so glad because I just love this stuff and am proud to offer this quality American made product to my customers!
hip hip hooray! looks like they're back in business!
