The Resources Directory is the place where you will find a contractor, locate craftsmen, tradesmen, products and services for older and historic homes. Posted information has been obtained from the Resource’s website, brochures and other publicly available information. No entries in the Resources Directory are ever solicited for inclusion and none pay to be listed here. It is the responsibility of the consumer to interview and research the qualifications and experience of service providers before making a purchase or contracting for services.
MB Historic Decor
MB Historic Decor is devoted to recording, reproducing, and selling “period” stencils for use in new and restoration decoration. Their collections include over 700 pre-cut patterns traced directly from historic New England houses. Six catalogues are available and include examples from the Shelburne Museum, Historic Deerfield and from the Museum of American Folk Art. They also carry an extensive inventory of paints, brushes and supplies, and the website has a wealth of information about “how to” techniques for stencilling.
