Our Inspiration...Our Story...Our Now...Our Future...

Looney Bin Trading Company started out of necessity & love and is growing with hope, faith and dreams!

Our Inspiration...
Inspiration came with the birth of our daughter Susan Faith in December 2007. She was born with a congenital heart defect called, Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS), which is a serious lifelong medical condition that is life threatening. She will require a heart transplant at some point in her lifetime.

Her struggles and survival over the last eight years has taught us to believe in what cannot be seen. Susan’s life changed our lives in many unexpected ways and gave us the faith and trust we needed to do almost anything including starting a company.

Our Story...
We started Looney Bin Trading Company in our garage as a way to bridge a financial gap between what Mike made at his "day job" and what we needed to pay our family's finances and Susan's medical bills. We used to do these huge garage sales to help raise money then our 4th daughter, Kathryn, came along and it was impossible to do our Fundraising through the garage sales.

We needed to find another way....Looney Bin Trading Co and Etsy was our answer. We started our shop on June 6th 2012 with just 3 items. Quickly we figured out this was more than just a way to bridge a gap.

In April 2013 we made a huge leap of faith...Mike quit his full time job and we moved Looney Bin into a 2200 sq ft warehouse. We worked hard and built the store up to over 100 listing and 300+ sales that first year. With continued growth we found ourselves reaching the milestone of 1000 Etsy sales a little more than 2 years after opening Looney Bin.

Our Now...
We are so thankful to our wonderful customers and the support we have received from everyone, including Etsy! It is with great pride and a ton of hard work every day that we are reaching new milestones. We surpassed our 2000th Esty Sale in November 2015. Then in January 2016 we moved into a larger 6000 sq ft building to help meet the request of our customers. We also welcomed additional members to the Looney Bin Family. They each bring a unique skill that enhance our ability to grow and create beautiful new items. We are now taking another leap of faith with opening our second Etsy Shop called Looney Bin Millworks.

Looney Bin Millworks will offer items cut from our sawmill using Reclaimed Wood from the Urban Forest. We have built a specialized sawmill capable of cutting 50 in wide slabs. We will be saving trees from the landfill and bringing you beautiful Live Edge products. You can find us at www.looneybinmillworks.etsy.com [Site is Under Construction! Check back soon for more as we get this new venture up and running]

We look forward to each day...getting up and doing something you love to do with the people you love is a wonderful thing. It is fun to get an email from a customer with an idea and work with them to bring that idea to life and into their home.

We also like doing our part to recycle, reuse and repurpose materials that are thrown away. Creating beautiful furniture and home decor items from Recycled Shipping Pallet Wood. This reclaimed wood has beautiful character while being Eco Friendly!

Our Future...
Is unknown. But we truly believe that with great customers, hard work, hope, faith and our dreams we can continue to grow our shop in Historic Downtown Buford, GA.

We offer the general public an option to the mass produced furniture and home décor out there with up-cycled echo friendly material and heirloom quality handcrafted construction.

Your items will never be manufactured, no fulfillment services or drop shipments, but will always be handcrafted by the people you see here...a real Mom and Pop Shop!

We hope you enjoy looking at our shops and let us know if we can build you a custom piece of furniture for your home!

Frequently asked questions

Q: Will I get the item in the photo?

A: All our items are Made to Order unless otherwise specified in the listing you are looking to purchase. So you will NOT receive the actual item photographed as it has been built and shipped to one of our customers already.

Q: Will my item have the same distressed features?

A: The natural patina and features in the wood vary widely. No...Your item may not have the same exact features. If you see something that you like about a particular listing bring it to our attention and we will try to choose wood from our stock that has similar features.

Q: What type or species of wood do you use?

A: All our products are built from reclaimed pallet lumber. This means all products will be mixed wood construction. Your items could be made from a mix of Pine, Poplar, Oak, Elm, Beech or others as pallets are made from a wide variety of species.

Q: How long will it take for me to receive my item?

A: Please read the Shipping & Policies section for current processing times. We try to build orders in the order they are received and/or in groups of similar items.

We usually have over 100 open orders at any one time therefore we request the longer processing time. It does not take 6 or 8 weeks to build your item...Your order is in line to be constructed.

You can check your purchase under your Etsy Account. You will be able to see the latest expected ship date. Usually we run about 6 to 8 weeks to construct your item(s) and then shipping takes an average of 6 days but up to 14 days.

Q: Why do you ship USPS Standard Post (AKA Parcel Post)?

A: Due to the weight and size of our items it is the most cost effective shipping method. We are happy to quote faster methods if you so choose, like USPS Priority Mail Service which take 2 to 3 business days.
