I just read in the Standard that Britton's, our local lumber yard, was bought out by Bethel Mills. Good news for aspiring real men (as well as certified real men) throughout the area. You don't give it much thought, but having a bona fide lumber yard so close to home is a great thing, saving us the hassle of having to go to W. Leb. Plus, they're local and use native woods, which is kind of cool, in a Vermont sort of way. I have to confess, I didn't think they were going to last, but it seems to me that the arrangement works out for both parties, not to mention aspiring home improvement gurus like myself.
Thanks for reading, and thanks to cbcs for the pic.
