Shelburne Farm Barn Fire Maple Wood Earrings
Handmade in Vermont by artist Reed Prescott.
"On Sunday morning, Sept 11, 2016, a thunderstorm rolled through Shelburne. A minor inconvenience for residents searching for a sound night's sleep, it had a far more devastating impact at the historic Shelburne Farms. At about 5:30 am, lightining struck the Old Dairy Barn on the Southern Acres portion of the porperty. Firefigthers arrived on the scene at 7 am. By 9:30 am a National Historic Landmark had been lost. The maple board used to make these earrings went through that fire."
