Spanning five generations, this family business maintains and evolves the standards of American etiquette that Emily Post established with her seminal book Etiquette in 1922. Though times and specific manners have changed, the Post's maintain that the principles of good etiquette remain constant. Above all, manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others.
Consideration, respect, and honesty are more important than knowing which fork to use. It’s the underlying sincerity and good intentions of our actions that matter most.
