NEW GLOUCESTER (WGME) — Business is booming for a couple in New Gloucester.
Their woodworking company has been named Maine’s top shop on the popular website Etsy.
Ross and Carie Gauvin are the co-owners of Rowe Station Woodworks.
They said their business’s big sellers are these floating picture ledges. They’re designed to float on the wall and hold photos or decor.
The Gauvin’s said the orders come in so fast they build nearly 300 each week.
They say this recognition from Etsy is huge because they both took risks, having quit their jobs to dedicate all their time to their business.
“I taught for 15 years, I took a plunge to work with my husband and be home with my girls, so to be recognized for something that was a tough decision and so much hard work,” Carie Gauvin said. “ And not knowing it was coming, it’s really cool, it means a lot.”
Ross Gauvin said they “treat each product like it’s the most important product so it means a lot to hear that from customers, we take great pride.”
To support their new growth, they will be opening a new workspace later this month.
