Introducing Vintage Village Designs

My name is David Furlong. I was born in Connecticut and lived in the states of New York, Vermont, and now Massachusetts. I ran my own toy business “Timbertoys of Vermont”, crafting and selling wooden toys throughout the country for ten years. I developed an interest in New England architecture and historic preservation and created “Vintage Village,” which replicated New England designs in wooden miniatures. I worked as a carpenter at the Shelburne Museum for ten years and then and as project manager for a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities for another ten years. My work there included researching historic buildings and interpreting exhibits accordingly. Now I have returned to crafting my wooden miniatures and am calling my business “Vintage Village Designs by David Furlong.” Today I am introducing my first four designs.

  1. THESE ARE BEAUTIFUL!!!! I think I need to start saving my money!!!! I know EXACTLY where I could put these in my house and they are very much something I would collect and cherish forever. Definitely something I could pass down onto my kids when they are older. Do you think you could number your items with a signature on the bottom of each piece? That would make it that much more special for sure.
