Haven America goes Outdoors, too!
Fog, rain, sleet, sun and snow, Haven America signs can weather any kind of storm with our TWO levels of protection!

Weather Seal: A protective matte coating is applied to the entire sign protecting it from moisture, rain, and sun, recommended for mild climates, patios, porches, and other covered areas outside with an over hang. This will give your signs extra protection from sun & moisture. This is no extra charge, and will feature a small sticker, on the back of each sign, indicating it is OK for outdoor semi-protected areas.

Coastal Core: Protection from the inside out starts with a special outdoor wood core and is finished for extra harsh conditions. It offers the most moisture protection, from not only sun and rain, but snow as well. We recommend this for outdoor applications: patios, garden, decks, out buildings and pool areas. This upgrade breaks out as follows: $5 for small signs, $7 for med signs, and $9 for our largest signs. This option also carries a sticker on the back indicating "Perfect for Outdoor Use!"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

About

Slippin' Southern started on a front porch...

in 2011 as a whimsical collection of nostalgic Southern word signs and shapes by Gregory Morris that depicted Southern lifestyle. The shop, originally called Slippin' Southern is now in its sixth year and features over 600 wall art creations in its growing collection which now extends beyond Southern genre into more mainstream American imagery, but still all executed in Gregory's signature distressed style.

Gregory's wall art delights children and strikes a nostalgic note with adults. All of his wall art is designed to look old, and weathered, like it's been hanging on the side of a barn for years. He is always working on new items for this Etsy shop and is always available to take on custom ordered signs as well.

Bright colors and nostalgic themes are combined by hand to create wall art for every room in your home inside and out. Subjects include nostalgic Southern life, early Americana, typography and nostalgic retail sign themes. All of his wall art features a distressed, vintage finish in 27 colors (see last picture in any listing). Categories include nursery, kids, teens, weddings, beach & coastal.

Today, all of Haven America's art is handmade in their studio in Chicago, Illinois (USA) with non-toxic materials and all manufactured within the United States. Many items are made from reclaimed or recycled wood material.

Thanks for stopping by. As of April 2016, Slippin' Southern became Haven America.

Here's our story:

This country is an enormous, diverse place. Inspiration comes from change. In 2009 our family moved to North Carolina from Chicago, IL. Things moved slower there. The thing is, Southerners have a way of doing things all their own. It's hard to explain. You just have to "live it" it to understand it. That's where the inspiration came. We began hearing phrases like: "That'll be eight dollars SHUG," or, "Oh, and one more thing... LUV-YA!" Here's another one, "YES MA'AM, I'll have GRITS with my eggs." At dinner, we inadvertently would throw in a "fixed (making)" or "drekley (directly)". We'd say, "Ah, did you just hear yourself dear? You're SLIPPIN' SOUTHERN!" Our Northern mannerisms were eroding away and we began adopting Southern counterparts. That's what led us to the name, Slippin' Southern. The style was defined by Southern inspired colors "Gulf Blue", "Biscuit Cream", "Florida Orange", etc and a distressed, antique finish.

In the Fall of 2012, we followed our dream and slipped farther South to New Orleans, LA as the company became more successful. If Southern phrases and kitsch were the first products of our company, then beach and coastal themes, functional art, scale, and reclaimed materials would be the "Big Easy" way of putting it. Slippin' Southern went to wholesale shows on the East and Southern coasts of the United States. Typically, there were 5-7 different "walls" of product in the show room. Beach and coastal themed items from Slippin' Southern North Carolina did the best while all the "Southerness" fell flat. Nonetheless, we ran with it. We began adding hooks to pieces so that the art could also serve a functional purpose like holding coats/towels, or keys and dog leashes. Picture frames using reclaimed, barge wood and simple furniture also became a possibility, too, with all the great craftsman post Katrina aid brought to the city.

Now, it's 2016. We’ve learned in the past seven years that wooden wall decor is about expressing American moments. We do that with modern design and reclaimed, rustic materials. It's what we like to call, modern rustic. We've been handcrafting our products in small batches, like a fine Kentucky Bourbon, and know they’ll add depth, fun, nostalgia, or just that "something" to the blank canvas of a room in your haven. Each piece is made in-house by our expert carpenters and craftsmen at our Chicago, IL studios. We're sure you'll enjoy our products just as much as we enjoy making them for you. From our Haven to yours: explore, experience, and expend.
