About

Check out our new venture...engraving. We have trialed it at craft fairs and found it to be well accepted. As with all our products we use top grade materials that you never have to worry about. Check out the house number plaques as well as the sayings. We even accept custom orders.

All of my products are designed and made in the USA with top quality American components.

I have been working with PVC since the early 1980s in both family business and corporate environments. In 1993, as a release from the pressures of the job, I started a craft business named "Across the Miles". This business allowed me to work with my other passion which is woodworking. In this business I started out making wooden bird feeders and nesting boxes along with other garden products, ideas inspired by my native England.

I have been working with PVC since the early 1980s in both family business and corporate environments. In 1993, as a release from the pressures of the job, I started a craft business named "Across the Miles". This business allowed me to work with my other passion which is woodworking. In this business I started out making wooden bird feeders and nesting boxes along with other garden products, ideas inspired by my native England. My trademark was in the roof design. it was the closest I could come to an English looking thatched cottage without the thatch.
Each item was handmade and inspected by me as part of the process. I became successful selling through craft shows and a couple of mail order catalogs. My day job took over as it demanded more of my time.
I closed that business down about 8 years ago but kept my designs alive and continually review them for improvements and future opportunities.
I believe in quality and good service and have practiced these throughout my work life.
Today I am on the wrong side of 50 and preparing for retirement, hence the name of the new business, My Retirement Gig.
I am inspired by my daughter who has a business called Made in Mogotes, where she sells some unique products made in the mountains of Colombia as well as her own creative jewelry. Her etsy site is: www.madeinmogotes.etsy.com. She has an interesting story behind her products, so take few minutes out to visit her shop.
She is the Social media expert who kept pushing me to open an Etsy shop. I am glad that I did because I have had a steady flow of sales and one thing is for sure, it is a great feeling when you sell something that was created, built and marketed by yourself.
I still have a lot of products that I want to post, both in wood and in PVC, so I hope you like what you see and come back often.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by My Retirement Gig, don't forget to check out my other shop www.patsadler.etsy.com to see some great shots from around the world.
We now have a new collective website that shows our feeders, bird houses and planters as well as our photography in one place. It is www.sadlergardencollections.com
All of our products are also available on Etsy.
