Framemaker business means good, steady work

Listen to this story
Continuing our occasional series on North Country entrepreneurs, we talk with Jeremy Morrow. Morrow owns the Harvest House framing shop on Main Street in Canton.

He's had a couple locations in the last few years: his shop was in a restaurant that closed down, and now he's on the second floor of a building that doesn't get much walk-by traffic. Although he says he's tried advertising, he gets most of his business from word-of-mouth.

In early May, Morrow will be moving again—he’s made an agreement to share space with a furniture store in downtown Canton. His costs will be reduced, and he’s hoping he’ll get more business there.

When unemployment is high, starting your own business—assuming you can get the capital together to do it—seems like less of a risk: It’s not like leaving a good job to go out on your own.

And as Morrow told Nora Flaherty, he's not in business to make a big splash—he just wants to make a living, and he says owning his own business has been the one way he’s seen to do that. 

Jeremy Morrow owns the Harvest House Framing store in Canton—as of early May, you’ll be able to find him at the Green Furniture Company on Miner Street.
