Market Profile - Monticello

Monticello, the estate of third President Thomas Jefferson(1801-1809) also the principal author of The Declaration of Independence (1776) is now a non-profit museum. The organization, with no Federal funding purchased the estate to maintain his home and land in it's original glory. Located in Charlottesville Virginia, about half a million people visit Monticello each year. The products they sell are either reproductions, or in the same style of Jefferson's own possessions. Old world meets modern day in these historical throw-backs.
