some of our Shade Gurus!

Guru Glimpse

Meet Michelle and Jenn. These two are an unstoppable customer service force to be reckoned with!

But don’t take our word for it…hear what our Shady customers have to say!

Ordering was easy & shades arrived exactly specification, thanks to Jenn. Installation was faster than expected & shades work perfectly. I found the website to be very user friendly, which is reassuring when making such an investment! Very nice, attentive small company. -Mari K,

I had purchased shades many years ago & when the string on one shade broke I called to discuss the options. Michelle was very friendly & helpful and I ordered a replacement with the same measurements as before. It was all very easy & once the shade arrived I got my son-in-law to help install the new one. I appreciate that Michelle followed up to see if all went well. –  Susan M.

Meet Michelle!

She’s a native Vermonter! She loves the four seasons (well maybe the winter not so much), the fresh air, the mountains, the cows, the farms and Vermont Gold a.k.a Maple Syrup! She loves visiting our many state parks, museums, Lake Champlain and going on rides to view the scenery and enjoy stepping back into time when stopping into one of the states many country stores along the way.

Meet Jenn!

Jenn grew up in Essex, Vermont. She’s a mother of two amazing kiddos, her 16 yr old daughter Ciera, was born with a very rare disease called Zellweger Syndrome and Moyamoya disease. She is Jenn’s inspiration and true hero. Her other child, Clay keeps her on her toes, and she wouldn’t have it any other way! Jenn is also a foster mom to over 10 dogs and 30 cats and kittens! Everyday she strives to help the less fortunate and the ones with no voice. And if that wasn’t enough, she also works part time at 1st Republic Brewery in Essex Junction, Veteran owned and operated!
