Made in Queens

Gothic Cabinet Craft, which built the new book/LP/CD cases I posted about a little while ago, were profiled today in the New York Times. It's a local business, founded in a store that still exists (the one I visited to design the bookcases) at Third Avenue and Thirteenth Street. The factory is in Maspeth, it's still family-owned, and employs hundreds of local craftsmen. It's wonderful to be able to support a local business like that with such satisfying results. I'll probably be buying more from them in the future.
