What Our Customers Are Saying about Our Miniature Cast Iron Stove …

"Dear Mr. Orton, Thank you so much for keeping in touch with me pertaining to my wait for my cast iron stove. There is a story behind my cast iron stove, that is why I waited so patiently for it. I'm 72 years young. My mother and our family usually went shopping on Fridays. My father had a three-chair barbershop right in town in the 1920s. As my mother and I walked through the many stores downtown, I don't know if you ever heard of Gambles hardware store. Well you guessed it, there up on the shelf was the identical cast iron stove. Oh I wanted that stove. My mother said, Emily, that is quite expensive. Well, I begged and begged until finally my mother bought it for me. You know the rest of the story. When I saw that identical stove in your catalogue, I just had to have it, and I love it. What memories and joy you have given me. Also I didn't tell you this, I have a brother and two sisters. We all played with my stove. We even boiled water and fried pieces of egg in the small frying pan. What wonderful fun. Thanks for the memory." - Emily Nelson, Wausau, WI

"Dear Mr. Orton, We are so happy to get the toy cast iron stove and all its pieces! My daughter, who is now in early middle age, remembers playing with one much like this one at my grandmother's house in the country. She had always wanted one of her own for her children, grandchildren (someday), and nieces to play with." - thomas todd, Dahlgren, VA

"My mom had one of the stoves made into a lamp. So did my Aunt Lella. It was 1955, in South Pittsburg, TN. The Lodge Iron Works was in the town. The Lodges lived on my aunt's street. I played with her stove and with my 1950's car my uncle gave me. He was a partner in Gentry Motors, a Chevrolet dealership in town. When my parents took me to visit, the only toys I had at my aunt's house were the stove and the car. I have always wanted another stove! My Grandmother raised 7 children while cooking on one of the big stoves. She had gotten rid of it by the time I was born." - Terry Blakely, Knoxville, TN

"When I was little, about nine, my dad took us on a road trip vacation to the New England states. We stopped at this huge country store in Vermont and he bought me a little cast iron stove with pots and pans. I have it on my dresser. I took care of it and played with it all the time when I was little. The best memories I have of my dad and mom were the vacations Dad took me on every summer from the time I was born until I left home at 24. We went for two to three weeks every summer with my dog in the station wagon. Dad always bought station wagons. I rode in the third seat backwards with my feet lying on the back window. Dad never bought cars with air conditioning. I would go to the library before we went on vacation and would get books about the historical places Dad was taking us to that year. He loved westerns and read Zane Grey. He took us on many Old West historical site vacations all over the U.S. We would stay in those roadside motels in the '60s and eat at diners or the Howard Johnson's along the roads. It was the best time of my life. Well, the year we went to New England we stopped at this huge country store in Vermont. I had a red purse that my sister got me and it had a cat clasp latch on it. I was so excited about my dad buying me this coal cook stove that I left my purse sitting on the floor by the counter when I carried out my stove after dad paid for it. (Dad didn't buy gifts for us, so when he did rarely buy me something it meant so much to me.) Dad drove on for the day and we got about 100 miles from the store when I realized I left my purse at the country store. Dad wasn't happy but he turned around and went back and got my purse. It had my Brownie camera in it. Well, about a year ago I came across this website. I saw the pictures of the inside of the store, and that summer vacation when I was nine and the cook stove flashed in my mind. This website -- The Vermont Country Store -- was the same country store where Dad bought my cook stove! You are still making memories for little girls after all these years." - hazel stanford schwart, massillon, OH
