Discontinued Brand Name Yarn Opens New Warehouse
BARTON, Vermont (May 23, 2012) - Discontinued Brand Name Yarn (DBNY) part of the Cherry Tree Hill Yarn Inc. family has opened a new clearinghouse for yarn, fabric, needlecraft products and accessories.
The warehouse is a renovated milking parlor attached to a historic barn adjoining the Orleans County Fairgrounds. Cherry Tree Hill scrapped plans for a new warehouse next to their present facility when an old farm across the street went up for sale. "We did not want to see the barn torn down and the land developed," said Cheryl Potter, president/owner of Cherry Tree Hill Yarn.
Ms. Potter continued, "We were running out of space and were dreading the long permitting process of building another warehouse. In the meantime, we were renting storage trailers to hold our larger shipments, but that's not a practical long-term solution. Converting the buildings into usable storage space will let us keep the land open and not spoil the aesthetics of the area."
When the Hanson Farm went on the market late last year, Ms. Potter saw that the buildings and land would be a good fit with the company and purchased them. Now that the milking parlor and garage have been renovated, they are moving product in and accepting appointments for "bulk" buyers to visit and purchase. DBNY is not open to the public and the minimum purchase for bulk buyers is $1,000. Retail yarn and quilt shops, online stores, clubs and groups are among those who have purchased from the new warehouse.
Many yarn shops and businesses did not survive the economic downturn, but DBNY has been steadily increasing sales and hiring new employees for the past several years.
Discontinued Brand Name Yarn has been in operation for 7 years in Barton, VT. DBNY sells higher quality yarns and knitting supplies/accessories from many sources. Products come directly from brand name manufacturers like Brown Sheep Yarn, Co. of Nebraska and Plymouth Yarn of Bristol, PA. DBNY also sells on consignment products from Local Yarn Shops (LYS) that are going out of business or just need to reduce inventory and some product comes from estate sales. Cherry Tree Hill Yarn is a Vermont based business that Ms. Potter began at her farm on Cherry Tree Hill Road in East Montpelier, VT in 1987. Cherry Tree Hill yarns are luxury hand-dyed and hand-painted yarns made from fine alpaca, wool, silk and other fibers.
