Adapted Lawn Chair

Garry & Diane
Spring 1979 - Diane agrees to let Garry exhibit his new windchime design in her sculpture booth at the Cincinnati Craft Fair. The first Chimes of Olympos was sold this day.
Here's Woodstock Chimes' current home, Olivewoods. It's nestled in New York's Catskill Mountains, with its signature giant Woodstock Chime in front.
