holidaycrop meet our team

Giving new life to old wood takes a lot of tenacity and creative energy. If you think we sell wood flooring and tables, you are only partly right. A big part of our job is to discover new and creative ways to use wood, to innovate processes and to tell our story in a way that inspires others to use reclaimed wood products. We’re a close-knit group who loves what we do. We work hard, and we have a lot of fun while we do it. We’re smart, honest, genuine, a little (ok, A LOT) wacky and wholly committed to growing our company sustainably in every sense of the word.
