  • I’d actually like to see the company pledge to track and trace the source of all the burl through their store to be sure it isn’t being poached off the state and national park land like it so commonly is in Orick.

      That’s what I was wondering

    • Veterans friend

      Wow. This is a very legitimate business. You really need to relax. In fact, you should have BEEN THERE today to check it out along with all the other wonderfull stuff at the first Miranda Street Fair.

      • Legit businesses inadvertently support illegal wood harvest when they don’t insist on certified wood or in the case of burl, specific track and trace data. Gibson guitars got into trouble with this and they are about as legit as they come.

        It is far too easy for companies to overlook sourcing irregularities simply because it’s inconvenient.

  • Check your facts…beautiful business..the owners are very conscious members of our community..they have worked diligently for many years to achieve the dream..they support local talent,and are mindful in every way of their environment .Stellar ..
