Where To Buy Porch Swings
When shopping for porch swings, there are several sources available. It seems that with the onset of e-commerce, many patio swings today are being bought on the internet. However, there are still places available that allow you to see the product before you buy it. Below we've listed the most common places where you can purchase a porch swing.
• Furniture Stores While there are a few retailers that carry outdoor furniture, most furniture stores only carry indoor furnishings.
• Hardware Stores Many of today’s hardware stores carry outdoor furniture, in addition to hardware supplies.
• Independent Crafters In rural areas, it is not uncommon to find woodcraftsmen who still make porch swings. These crafters may sell their products along the side of the road, or in their front yards. The best way to locate a local porch swing builder is to simply “ask the locals”.
• Arts & Crafts Shows Scattered throughout the country are trade shows that feature independent artists, such as woodworkers. You are almost guaranteed to find outdoor furniture makers at these events, including handmade porch swings!
• Online Retailers The invention of the internet has opened the doors for just about every type of commerce available, including outdoor furniture. There are literally hundreds of retailers on the web that sell porch swings. Many are mass-produced, but a few companies still sell handcrafted patio swings like Cypress Moon!
• Previous Owners Sometimes when you’re traveling down the road you will see items in people’s front yards for sale. If you’re lucky, you might find a porch swing. However, these situations are very few, because once you buy a porch swing, you’ll never want to be without one again!
