Amare Workshop: design, renovation & handmade goods

  coming soon…its going to be a very good year.

  Design and renovation services.

We will be available to take on a few small design/build projects starting in the winter of 2017/18. If you have a small project that calls for attention to detail, and thoughtful consideration of how it fits into the bigger picture, please contact us to discuss. We have found that we are good at problem solving and thinking out of the box for a one of a kind, livable solution. Currently keeping it manageable with bathrooms and kitchens and not whole house projects.

  Vintage and handmade goods.

Formerly “The Pear Tree” home and garden, Amare shop will be coming back to its roots in vintage and handmade goods. Occasionally I will add a well made newer item, but I am mostly excited about the one-of-a-kind home and garden goods. The original Pear Tree started when I made floorcloths and sold antiques out of the big back barn on Main St. It grew with the market and expanded into full service design and furniture store. As exciting as this was, I lost some enthusiasm along the way and missed making and restoring things with my hands. I will be starting an online store on Etsy,  and probably also on this website. Feels good to check in with myself and pare down to the essentials once again.


I have some ideas for workshops at Amare Guesthouse. One that property sits an incredible 3 story 30′ x 50′ barn, that is largely unused. I can see hosting a weekend floorcloth making workshop, limited to maybe 6-8 people where everyone goes home with their own cloth. Or perhaps day of wreath making around the holidays. Or maybe a yoga teacher would like to come in and host a weekend. Please share your thoughts, the space is meant to be used and shared!
