DOVER - For Taylor Wilkins, a few things happened at once in the summer of 2019. He found out his job, working in the sign shop at Mount Snow, was being eliminated. He had a list of clients he needed to make signs for. And his wife was six months pregnant. 
“There was no transition period,” says Wilkins. “I had to keep making money.” So, he set up a sign fabrication shop in his house, where he still works today.
