About

Antique double and triple ski chair lift swings.

I started this shop about a year ago by accident. I was at a local scrap yard near my house, and found a mountain of antique ski chair lifts. I thought that it would be sad to see these go to recycle, so I thought "what can I make out of these?", so I came up with the idea of porch swings. I talked to my wife, and we decided to purchase all of the chairs. It was a large initial investment, but I thought I could make a fun business out of it. We started our Etsy and Ebay businesses, and have had great responses. We have sold chairs from coast to coast, and even as far away as Canada and London. A couple of our chairs have been purchased by companies like Sweaty Betty and Burton Snowboards for promotional purposes. It has been a fun business, and I have met many awesome people with great stories of why they purchased one of our chairs. One of our chairs was purchased by a young ski instructor for a gift for his dad that was also a retired ski instructor at Crested Butte back in the 60's. The dad said that this chair brought back some very fond memories. I think I enjoy the stories as much as I enjoy making these chairs. I am now know as the "ski chair guy". People in our community tip me off to where there may be old ski lift chairs that I can purchase and repurpose. It's been fun to think that I've given these old chairs new life and that they will be around for many more generations. Thank you, Ryan.
