Tom and Maril, soul-mates since May of 1957, were in the vintage furniture business starting in 1972. When they relocated to Longmont, CO in the mid 90’s they had continued their retail store business until 1999.
Tom, had been custom making Molesworth style furniture prior to this period of time, and in 1997 the T-M-Cowboy Classics website was born.
Cowboy Classics was named and awarded as the “Best of Denver” for their retail shop in Longmont, CO. in 1992 by Westword, a Denver free newspaper.
The T-M-Cowboy Classics website was handled by Maril. Vintage western furniture and accessories were sold via cyberspace consignment and offered for sale on the T-M-Cowboy Classics website. Tom was able to devote all of his time to creating custom ordered western inspired furniture styles such as Molesworth, log, lodge, Adirondack and rustic, to name a few and it was referred to as New Cowboy West Furniture on the website. We have included for your viewing pleasure, several examples of Tom’s accomplishments over the past 30 years for his custom order customers. He was truly a master woodworker.
Cowboy Classics received the “Best of Denver” award for their website business in 2001.
To be given this award twice is pretty special and on behalf of Tom and Maril we wanted to share it with you, our wonderful cyber space friends and customers. The award covered the Shopping and Services and Goods and Services categories. This is what the article said:
Best place to find Roy Rogers Chenille Bedspreads online.
Folks with a hankering for western kitsch – authentic cowboy clocks, Wagon Wheel couch sets and tepee shaped cookie jars, once had to drive to Longmont in order to check out the new arrivals at Cowboy Classics, one of the area’s best sources of western memorabilia. But now the wild west comes to you via the store’s web site, which offers one-stop shopping for lamps, chenille bedspreads, posters, vintage pictures and cowboy dinnerware, as well as hand-carved furniture by Dr. Niblack, a onetime Denver chiropractor whose work is now displayed in a South Dakota museum. The web site is loaded with photos and updated frequently – which can come in handy, since the store itself is open only by appointment.”
Unfortunately, Tom and Maril experienced health issues in 2012 which progressively worsened over the next five years. Tom passed away in February, 2017. Maril’s health descended resulting in numerous hospital stays over the next several months. Prior to Maril passing away in early December, 2017, the operations of T-M-Cowboy Classics were turned over to her capable long- time friends and associates, Ady and Rich.
