July 29, 2018

Hi Gary,

I hope this finds you and family well!

Having some of your furniture over here continues to be a daily delight.  Less than Zero buyer's remorse.
I still can't believe how great living with a few of your team's creations has been.

Kind regards,
B.M.

Thank you for your note.  I just told our daughter about the chair and sent her a photo.  I also suggested she watch the video on your website.  Your thoughtful design and craftsmanship will definitely be appreciated at our house!

Bet you are having a wonderful time with your grandson.  Fun age.  Hope he lives close enough for you to see him often.

We have three daughters.  This is the first grandchild, but we hope there will be more to come.

On a different note, E and I both have back issues.  The chair is very comfortable for me and I have practiced rocking in it several times today.  I can't wait for E to get home from work so he can try it too.

Appreciate your kindness every step of the way with our rocker.

Our beautiful cherry rocker just arrived Monday morning.  I did not get an advance call for 4 hour window so I'm very glad I was home when the driver called to say he would be here in an hour!  It was actually perfect timing since the sun is shining right now in Annapolis.  We are in a period of expected 10 days of rain so I have been worrying about a possible delivery in a downpour.

Our grandchild was "due" on the 21st so we've been wondering which would come first, the baby or the rocker .  You won!

Thank you for being so kind.  We look forward to many hours of cuddling our first grandchild in the wonderful rocker.  I love handmade things — I'm a pottery student — so appreciate all the attention to details in your work.

Gary — Great to hear from you.  Please do use the Elkhorn, NE address.  Everyone absolutely loves their cherry rocker, including K and I.  We're certain that #5 will be no exception.  Still working on #10 being free, but may take a lifetime.  In all seriousness, thanks for all you do.

Hi Gary,

The chairs arrived and they are beautiful.  The darker eastern walnut compliments the lighter western walnut of our dining table.  The chairs are beautifully made and are gorgeous to the touch.  Thank you.

Gary — very nice to hear from you as always.  I was delayed in responding, because we spent the past week on grandparenting duty in Philadelphia, taking care of our 10-month-old granddaughter while our daughter and son-in-law were out of town.  I can tell you that the rocker and table that you made for our daughter look great and are very well used!

We and our friends and family are enjoying all of our white Gary Weeks porch rockers as well — although we have had some hot spells, the difference between here and Texas is that the hot spells are broken up by cool spells.  It was 55 degrees when we got up this morning, and the high today will be 80 degrees — we drank coffee and read the paper in two of your rockers on our porch, and I suspect that we will will spend more time in them later today as well.

Glad to hear that you have been able to spend time with your grandchildren as well — that's really what it's all about.

Enjoy the rest of the summer, and best wishes for continued success in the business  (and for its founder to have time to get away as well).

Best.

Thank you for the follow up.  Yes, the chair and foot stool arrived yesterday morning.  It is beautiful and appears to be in excellent shape!  The engraving is perfect.

Gary,

Thank you so much for your thoughtful note.  We also have been traveling, hence the rather late acknowledgement of how thrilled we are with our new rocker.  It is so beautiful, a real work of art.  And more important it is equally comfortable for myself  (5'2") and my husband  (6'1").  Would not have believed that to be possible.  We are so happy with our chair, thanks again.

Appreciatively,
P.F.

July 2, 2018

Thank you Gary.  After a painful injury and surgery five years ago, I had been unable to find a chair in which I could sit comfortably.  Your rocker fixed this problem — I was able to feed my grandson this morning without pain.

I suspect this will not be my last Gary Weeks rocker.

Many thx.

Dear Gary,

I appreciated finding such a company as yours in the town I grew up in.  The chair arrived timely, the day before our first of twins was discharged from the NICU.  With twins we justified having two chairs.  My wife has a fancy glider with cushions and I prefer my walnut rocker.  It was a splurge but I tried to make one and it was taking too long!

Thank you,
D.S.

June 20, 2018

Hi Gary,

My enthusiasm is borrowed from my dad, who owns two of your rockers and is a little obsessed.  :)  My parents have a kitchen table and chairs from you too.  He's been singing your praises for years, and I'm glad we can finally lay claim to our own Gary Weeks furniture!

Thank you!

Gary:

I just wanted to let you know how much we love our new table.  It's gorgeous!  The craftsmanship of you and your crew is really evident in its design, construction, and finish.  I always admire and even envy really good craftsmen.  With one leaf in the table its size is perfect for the two of use, and, with three leafs in, the rounded corner design makes is so we can easily seat ten.  I am amazed how stable and sturdy the central pedestal design is even when expanded to its maximum.  I could go on, but suffice it to say Evelyn and I think the table is beautiful.  We really appreciate your great work.

Hello Gary and Company.  Our Walnut Rocker arrived in fine order on Friday in Michigan.  It was well packed and there weren't any marks on the box.  I had forgotten how beautiful, rich and shiny it was 17 years ago when I bought it.  Y'all did a fabulous job refinishing it!!  Unfortunately, once we put it in our living room we realized that it was just too nice for our renters to use.  Like I've always said, y'all are artists and not just wood workers.  I could not allow such a beautiful work or art to be scratched, or god forbid to have someone sit on it with a wet bathing suit.  That just won't do!  So it shall sit in our locked owners closet, wrapped like a present until we return for a month in July/Aug so only we will be the ones to marvel and enjoy it.

Many thanks for an exceptional job done by all at Gary Weeks and Company.  Always remember that you create beauty that enriches other peoples lives!

Fondly,
M.S & T.S.

Hi Autumn!!

It was great to meet you and thank you for hand delivering the chair!  Ginger loves it . . . We went inside and she cried . . . it was something she's wanted for a long time!!

She loves it!

Hi Gary,

I just rocked my daughter, Lucy, to sleep on your chair. Me, Tracey and Lucy love it and everyone that's seen it has asked where we got it from.  Also, the plaque came in the mail today.  Looks great and thanks for sending it to us.

Everything from start to finish was amazing.  The people working with you take pride in every aspect of work being done for your customers.  The chair is perfect and my family will enjoy it for generations. Please thank your team for me.

Thank you.

Hi Gary,

Brittany and her husband are thrilled with the chair!  We are huge fans!

I am glad to hear you enjoyed a great vacation!  Owning a business can be taxing.

We will purchase again!

Gary

Thanks for the follow up email Gary — that is not necessary, but very much welcome and is an excellent display of customer service and satisfaction!

Jealous of your Italian sojourn, I am sure you returned well rested and well fed!

Regarding the rocker:  yes — we very much realize now that the value in the piece is frankly lower than the asking price  (while also recognizing that the true value would put the rocker out of our reach . . . so we've both come to appreciate your pricing!).

The only problem is that Sydney now claims the rocker as her exclusive domain.  Whereas we used to read nighttime stories together while rocking, I'm now relegated to an adjacent seat while Sydney gets to rock comfortably by herself as she listens to the story!  I guess it is her chair, ultimately, but I can't say I appreciate being kicked out of it!  LOL.

Thanks again for the kind note!  Until next time!  (we've had our eye on your bar stools for a while now, and are waiting for some cash to free up)

Gary,

I apologize for not responding the day my rocking chair, stool and table arrived  (That day I wrote my feelings on a sticky note and stuck the note to my office phone.  They exceeded all my expectations.  They are beautiful, comfortable and have a quality that evokes feelings of harmony and peace within me.  Plus, I love to sit in the chair, put my feet on the stool take a book from the table and read.  In short you all have made me very happy.  Thanks to all of you.  It will all be used, but reverently.

Italy sounds great.  A few years ago, Joan and I spent a couple of weeks at Montestigliano, wonderful olive farm/villa 12 miles outside Siena.  Hadn't been in Italy since '68 when I rode a Vespa all through Rome. Glad you got away and to such a special place.  Curious to see if there is a Renaissance touch to future furniture.

Thanks again I can't tell you how much I enjoyed the process and love the result.  I am bragging about "Gary Weeks and Company Furniture Makers" to everyone.

Hi Gary and Austin,

We have so much enjoyed our lovely rocker that somehow we managed to ship down to St John USVI in 2011.

You may have heard that St John took a direct hit last September from a Category 5 hurricane.  Winds in our hill were clocked at 280 mph, when the machine measuring them broke.  It was followed 2 weeks later by another Category 5  (Maria) which devastated Puerto Rico and thoroughly soaked whatever was left on St John.  We lost our roof, our wooden decks, and most of our wooden furniture from moisture and mold, but . . . . MIRACULOUSLY, not our rocker!  It is virtually the only wooden piece left, and we treasure it all the more.

Best,
J.M.

Dear Autumn,

My rocker and stool arrived yesterday in perfect condition.

I just wanted to tell you and Gary and whoever worked on these beautiful pieces how exquisite they are — perfectly stunning.  The comfortable design, incredible craft, gorgeous use of the wood — they are works of art.

I may have mentioned that I am an amateur woodworker and while I'll never make a piece like these, my appreciation runs deep.  When my daughter has children I hope she'll nurse them in this rocker.  Or maybe I'll have to get her one for herself since I may not be willing to share.

Thank you, and all best wishes for your success,

R.M.

Hi Gary and Autumn

We received our rocking chairs on April 12th!!!  Everything in perfect condition.  They are so beautiful, elegant, simple and soooo comfortable, we love them!!!  We have been really looking them over and are in awe at the beauty of the wood and the craftsmanship.  They are first class all the way.  Thank You so much!  We sit in them every morning and early evening and in between too  :)  Oh, and we either look out the windows on the little Salmon River  (maybe we see a bear or moose or eagle or Spring happening) or are sitting enjoying the fire in the woodstove.  Perfect!

Best Regards

Hi Autumn,

I just wanted to let you know that we received our Cherry Rocker today and my husband and I are completely thrilled!!  The color is gorgeous, it's so comfortable and the workmanship and care your team has taken in crafting it is evident throughout.  I'm just imagining the hours we'll spend rocking our little girl  (who is due in 4 weeks!) in the years to come.  It's a piece we'll treasure forever — thank you so much!!

I'm also going to pass along to my parents, my wish to have one of the Harris Stools for my birthday too.
If you hear from C.R. in the near future, that's us!!

I hope you have a great evening.  Please let your crew know how wonderful their work is!

Our barstools arrived yesterday by FedEx as scheduled and in perfect condition . . . well done!  They are beautiful, comfortable and lovely to the touch.  You have mastered every facet of your business, it is such a pleasure to work with all of you.

Now we will settle back and enjoy this new addition to our home.  Thank you for another delightful experience with Gary Weeks & Co.

Gary,

It went well and it was nice to have the custom delivery.  The chair is absolutely beautiful and we love the tiger stripe on the surface of the wood.  I hope that it keeps that trait as it ages.

I hope to buy two or three more from you in the next 10 years as my sons get married and have children but we will see!

I hope to see you in July.

Take care!

Hi Gary,

Thank you for the kind note.  Our experience with your company has been great.  Autumn did a wonderful job answering all of our questions and building that confidence, plus I really appreciated the ease of paying online with PayPal.

The chair your team designed and built is perfect for us; which is impressive as I am 6'5" and my spouse is barely 5'.  Its arrival in our home has created a new house rule:  "You move your feet, you loose your seat". If someone gets up from the chair, someone else will instantly sit in it.

We look forward to many more purchases from your company!

Best,

Hi Gary,

My parents gave me the Weeks Rocker in pecan in 1995 to celebrate the birth of our first child.  Many hours have been spent in that chair reading and dozing a little too!  I believe my parents  (who live in Fort Worth) came upon your rockers at a bed and breakfast somewhere near Austin — and hunted you down to place the order.

That rocking chair has moved from Tennesee to Virginia to Florida to Washington State to North Carolina and now resides in Colorado!  It has truly traveled coast to coast rocking kids of all ages!

We were thrilled to find you on the Internet — still making the same rocker!  We wouldn't change a thing! It is our pleasure to gift one to our daughter, Brittany and her husband to celebrate the same event!

Thank you for your commitment to craftmanship — it is well worth the effort!

My walnut rocking chair has been delivered and I am sitting in it as I type this.  I love how the back slats conform to my old back and I enjoy rocking away.  The workmanship is outstanding.  Haven't found one rough spot on it.  My husband, a very critical furniture person, cannot find anything negative to say about it.  He loves the walnut as do I.  I do believe this is now a family heirloom.  My husband thinks he might want one but he has a little difficulty standing up from it.  He has had knee surgery recently, so I think that might be the problem.  My only question now, do I need to keep it oiled down or polished?  Even the delivery man was oohing and aahing over it as he helped me take it out of the packing.

February 12, 2018

Gary,

We are thankful that craftsmen and women like your company's make such high quality functional works of art.  Our two walnut rockers, a small end table, and a small foot stool from your company are pieces of furniture we cherish and will use with pleasure.  They will ultimately be family heirlooms to pass on to our sons' families.

Your employee, Autumn, who delivered the rocker a few weeks ago, is one dedicated employee to have driven from Wimberly to Kingwood and back to very carefully deliver our second rocker.  Thank her for so carefully getting the chair to us.

Best Regards,

Hi Gary,

Each of my two daughters has one of your rockers and loves it.  Unfortunately, I only have two. ;)  I do have a son so there is hope for yet another wedding gift.

My husband of 36 years and the love of my life just passed away.  The kids and I are all together this week. Within one hour of our getting all together your loved rockers were part of our conversation.  Perhaps one day I will have to buy one for myself.  (I was secretly hoping to win one.  Lol!)

Thank you.

Gary, hi.  This message is a bit delayed.  Yes, we did receive the rocking chair.  It arrived in good condition.  It looks great in our home and it is a comfortable to both my wife and I.  The few people we have shown it to so far also have been impressed by its form — It really is a great looking chair.  We're happy with our purchase and excited that we didn't have to wait 3 months to get it  (though we're not sure why the folks down in So. Cal. passed on it).

Next time we're down in Austin maybe we'll work out a way to come by and see your shop.  I'd be excited to see it.  Will check in on the website from time to time to see if you post anything new from time to time and to see how you update the site in the near future as you mentioned wanting to pursue when we talked a few weeks back.

Thank you.

Thank you for your email.  I purchased these rockers to give to two men who have worked for my company for over 30 years.  They were not Rolex guys.  I had some custom boots made for them and we gave them these rocking chairs.  I wanted something unique.  Your rockers were perfect.  Thank you.

I must send you a picture of some of the grandchildren sitting in the rocker.  These beautiful art pieces brought great joy and will be cherished for many years to come.  We so enjoyed sitting in our rockers in front of the fireplace during those cold days, and we probably will enjoy them again tonight.  It is such a pleasure doing business with you.  You are a true delight.  Also, Autumn has helped us out a lot as well. Thank you for being on this earth and sharing your beauty with us.
