Its been a long time since we worked the craft fairs and art shows selling our hand-crafted teak Adirondack chairs. But that beginning meant freedom from corporate ties and budget meetings and it was wonderful. “I’d trade sawdust for a necktie any day”, was the mantra. Natural business growth occurred and within a couple of years the business model shifted into accepting products from suppliers and offering a variety of outdoor patio furniture for sale over several websites. We currently maintain a very comfortable business size that enables us the freedom to stay true to our focus: working closely with our customer. We are very grateful – (still no ties)!
Do what you do the best!
Since our inception in 1998, our primary focus has always been about building relationships with our customers by offering exceptional customer assistance. We do that by knowing the products that we sell and understanding that customers have unique needs. We do not aspire to grow into a mega-huge internet retailer where it becomes impractical to really know all two million products for sale. Again, grateful we found something we can enjoy to do (without a tie).
True, there are other places to shop for a wide selection of quality outdoor living products at very reasonable prices. That is exactly why we have added many additional reasons to do business with us.
