Keebler has elves. McDonald’s a clown. Disney is a billion dollar corporation with a little pixie on their letterhead… So please don’t snicker just because we have a “Shed Ferry”. I take personal offense to any ridicule… because I am the “Shed Ferry”.
Where did the Shed Ferry come from? For a while I was pitching the story that I was born in a tree trunk centuries ago, but internet search and DNA testing was making that a difficult sell. So here’s my current story… In 1962 I was working at Reeds Ferry and installed a beautiful 10×14 cedar shed in Tewksbury MA. The homeowner had told his young daughter that a company called “Reeds Ferry” was doing the job. When she came outside and saw the finished product she said, “Look daddy! The Shed Ferry was here!” This explanation is completely plausible; it contains all the elements of good mythology. One minute an empty backyard, the next minute a shed! What could explain this phenomenon other than a magical Shed Ferry? Regardless, that’s our story and we’re sticking to it.
As the Shed Ferry I’m responsible for responding to our friends on FaceBook and occasionally blogging promotional pabulum. But because I’ve worked full-time at Reeds Ferry since 1959 I have great insight on the construction, installation, and abundant advantages of owning a Reeds Ferry Shed. If you live in New England and have any question regarding backyard storage I invite you to reach out and tap the Ferry.
Thank you. – The Shed Ferry
