This past week’s Made On Honor segment was on Frog & Toad, a unique gift shop selling locally made products. Erin and Asher Schofield opened the store about 10 years ago on Hope Street in Providence where they’ve packed their store to the brim with clothing, bags, soaps, candles, jewelry, unique cards, t-shirts, and so on. Actually, so much stuff that there was too little room to do the interview inside.
Got a quick night to spend away? It probably won’t be to Albany. Nothing personal Albany, but you’re not exactly a destination spot. There was a free expiring Holiday Inn night to use and thought, why not. The New York State Museum [above] is definitely worth a look. But the real point was to go 156 feet below ground to visit New York’s second largest natural wonder. Here’s a lovely video by fiftyfootant of the trip to Howe Caverns, about 40 minutes west of Albany.
Recently I was approached to produce a series of videos for Narragansett Beer to help celebrate their 125th anniversary. The series features artisans who hand-make their craft all falling under the tagline “Made on Honor”.
Last week’s subject was The Lorimer Workshop, owned and operated by Scotland born David Ellison. After 30 years in a corporate career, David thought he would spend his retirement building affordable handcrafted wooden tables in his garage with one client at a time, but quickly realized there was a large market of people in demand of his work, and so began a whole new career.
Here’s the full video below.
Last week we headed out to Columbus, Ohio with the Providence College team for the NCAA tournament. We were there to document the trip and cover the tournament from the team’s perspective, which ended a little prematurely. Despite all that, Columbus was a delightfully charming city.
Below is a quick little video about the trip to Ohio with coach Ed Cooley.
