More than forty years ago, Andrew T. Conti realized retirement was not for him. Conti was a worker. As founder and partner in the Greenfield Open Air Market, he'd spent his life building a successful business. Retiring in 1979, he quickly grew tired of having nothing to build. So build he did — literally. After two years of making picnic tables and outdoor furniture as a hobby, Andy opened Andy's Pine Shop in an old barn on Deerfield Street.
Andy's & The Oak Shoppe offers quality-made finished and unfinished furniture, including a wide range of tables, chairs, bed frames, armoires, dressers, bookcases, cupboards, cabinets, hutches, entertainment centers, desks, rockers, and more. Andy's specializes in pieces made from cherry, maple, birch, parawood, and pine; The Oak Shoppe in furniture of oak and ash. Both sections also sell comfortable upholstered gliders, recliners, sofas, and chairs; and an eclectic mix of accent pieces and gifts, including framed prints by local artists, clocks, baskets, lamps, chandeliers, and Polish pottery.
Homespun by Andy's, which opened in 2005, features an online store in addition to its Greenfield showroom, where shoppers can find ready-made drapes, swags, valances, shades, and curtains; braided rugs and runners; placemats and other table coverings; and more. Homespun moved inside the Andy's flagship store in 2019.
At the site of the original Andy's retail store is now Bedrooms by Andy's, which opened in March of 2019. BBA, as it is called by our staff, sells everything for the bedroom, including solid-wood beds, dressers, chests and nightstands, plus mattresses, quilts, sheets, blankets and pillows.
And joining the Andy's family of stores in 2020 is Andy's of Keene, the company's first store outside Greenfield. Our loyal customers will find many of the same items they have come to expect here at the Greenfield stores, plus expanded sections of upholstery, mattresses and more. Located at 93 Park Avenue (the former location of another family-run furniture store!), Andy's of Keene proves to be a great addition to the family.
Andy's continues to be a family business, with members of the third generation now in ownership positions. And we are still using his workshop every day!
Andy's continues to be a destination for do-it-yourselfers and homeowners looking for custom pieces. With our large selection of unfinished, solid wood furniture and quality paints and stains, we draw shoppers from several states.
Heritage, service, and an appreciation for both traditional and contemporary design sensibilities are everywhere at the Andy's family of stores! Celebrating 40 years in business in 2021!
