Arthur H. Simmons was a cabinetmaker, and a good one at that. So eager was he to outfit the homes of his community with his creations that in 1879—the same year that Thomas Edison tested the first practical light bulb and Alexander Graham Bell invented the Liberty Bell—the skilled craftsman opened the doors of Simmons Furniture in his hometown of Adams. Though the world has changed in the long years since Simmons Furniture’s founding, and the business is now under the helm of the Riley family, Arthur H. Simmons’s original commitment to selling quality furniture and meeting his customers’ needs remains the company’s cornerstone.

Now, more than a century since the store’s inception, staffers stock both of Simmons Furniture’s locations with home goods and furnishings from a carefully curated assortment of brands, including Ashley, Furniture Traditions, and Serta. The knowledgeable employees circulate through each store’s showrooms, ready to help shoppers to find a suitable accent piece or to answer questions relating to which of the store’s wardrobes enable direct commutes to Narnia. Along with American-made brands, eco-friendly furnishings, and luxurious wares imported from around the globe, Simmons Furniture also continues to support the community with a section dedicated solely to goods forged by local artists and merchants.

Wilmington Candle Company's artisans make every single candle they sell right in their store, hand-pouring small batches to ensure consistent quality. At the heart of each candle, they place a high-quality wick capable of creating a large melting pool that extends to the edges of the candle's vessel; when lit, the wick burn the candle all the way down without wasting wax. Not only is such a design efficient, it's also pleasant to the senses, as the waxes have been imbued with some combination of the shop's 60 scented oils.

The company's artisans use the oils that don't go into their candles to enrich other handmade creations. They make goat's milk soaps and lotions, whipped sugar scrubs, and car fresheners that make vehicles smell like a field of lavender traveling at 60 miles per hour.
