Announcement    Thank you for visiting My Retirement Gig, an arm of Sadler Garden Collections, home of the original square vinyl bird feeder.

Great news!! All of our products now have free shipping. No need to worry about how much shipping adds to the purchase. Just enjoy the product at the listed price (except taxes where applicable).
When you buy from us you are supporting the local Western New York economy. All of my components are made in the USA and constructed by a very quality conscious me.

Now you are on my site you are probably wondering, "So what makes this site different from the hundreds of other birds related sites?" Its PVC, yes Polyvinyl Chloride or PVC for short. You've seen it used for fences, decking and railings, windows, house siding, and various other outdoor applications.
You probably know that PVC is virtually maintenance free, never rots, is nonporous, and it never needs painting. Oh, and it lasts for so long that you have to want to replace it.
My bird houses and feeders, as well as my planters have those same attributes.
I use PVC wherever I can, because of those reasons. That's what makes my shop different from the rest. Additionally, I design and build all of the items you see in the shop. I also test every design against the elements in my Buffalo, NY garden.

See my Bird feeders, bird houses, planters and candle holders. and the new PVC post toppers, plus many other items built to last. I use the finest weatherable construction materials that will withstand the elements.

We started out in 1993 using wood and PVC as our media of choice. Over the years, we have developed many original products for sale online as well as craft shows in Western New York.

My philosophy is simple; make a product that I would be proud to own. In other words, design and build products that stand the test of time, are built to last, are fairly priced, are tested in our own environment (Buffalo, NY) and meet customers' needs and expectations.

You only have to read our customer reviews to see how many folks are happy with their purchases.

I have worked in the PVC fence industry since 1982 using the finest extrusions on the market to build my product portfolio. Each piece of PVC is manufactured to withstand most weather situations and is designed for longevity. The PVC I use is virtually maintenance-free, yes virtually, because it is not self-cleaning!! it's also made right here in Buffalo NY.

I use western red cedar as my wood of choice, again because it is fence grade and therefore one of the best products for outdoor use. I sand each piece and finish it with either an outdoor oil, a marine varnish to enhance the grain or an outdoor oil or latex paint.

I believe in building products that last, look great and give customers value for money.

So check us out and buy with confidence!
We also have a website for our larger products, as well as many blogs covering many subjects. www.sadlergardencollections.com
our website also links back to Etsy where we sell the an array of products.

PS: We also do custom work, so if you have a new idea or a change to a piece that already exists, let us know.

PPS: Please come back and visit us often as we always have exciting new products to share with you.

About MyRetirementGig

Sales 1,242
On Etsy since 2011

A passion for designing, prototyping, manufacturing, marketing, and selling. I love it all!

I work out of one half of a two car garage, as well as the basement and two trailers for storage.

I sell my products through Etsy as well as local craft fairs. I am just getting back into crafting after a 10 year break during which I focused everything on my day job.

Today as I near retirement, I am putting more effort into building my retirement empire, more commonly known as My Retirement Gig.

I am a self taught woodworker as well an "oldie" in the PVC world. I have worked with PVC extrusions in the fence, rail and deck industry for over 30 years.

My wife likes to lend a hand in the business and does all the stenciling and painting on my birdhouses.

The products you see here are just a handful of the many designs I have in my head...stay tuned for new ones.

We will work on custom items by request.

The bottom line for me is that I love making things and I love selling things. When the two come together smoothly, it makes it all worthwhile.

Please feel free to read the comments from our customers. You may be saying the very same thing one day!

Thanks for stopping by.

Pat

Additional policies and FAQs

We try to make our products representative of the picture shown on Etsy in terms of shade, color and grain.
If we make a run of 10 of the same product, due to the nature of lumber, there will be slight differences in appearance of grain pattern, color and shade. If you would like to see a picture of the actual piece being sent to you we will gladly oblige.
With our engraving business we will gladly work with you to help you design a sign. However we need to put in a special order and have your commitment to that order before we send renditions of the sign. We just do not have the resources to work on renditions without a firm order. This is a difficult area for us as its all work done with computer programing and layout, which are quite time consuming. thanks for your understanding
