About

Simple Fun.

We tend to get lost in the day-to-day hustle and bustle. We truly sometimes forget about the simple things. Experiences and sensations we don't think about often but when we do experience that true simple pleasure it strikes us and leaves an impression in our souls, our psyche.

Swings are just such a thing. Young or old, a swing will make you smile. Solo or with a friend pushing you as high as you dare go, a swing will leave you with that feeling you haven't felt for some time—carefree, childhood-defining fun.

I made my first swing for our home in 2009. It has been the focal point for anyone who comes to visit. It's mounted high in a 200 year old White Oak tree and summer breezes have never felt so grand. So wonderful a time, friends and acquaintances alike asked for me to make a swing for them. From there the ride began.

It wasn't until October 2012 I took it to the masses and started my etsy shop and website. Since then I feel lucky to have made so many across the country smile that smile I know they get every time they get on their Vintage Swing.

Our swings are designed and built to be of heirloom quality. They are designed with old-fashioned quality and true vintage aesthetics. All of our swings are proudly handmade in Charlottesville, Virginia.
