Swings & Things is a small family owned and operated business
nestled in the foothills of Central California. Located approximately
40 miles northeast of Fresno in the little town of Auberry is where
we (The Elliotts) make our home and our living.
my husband's parents brought the redwood patio furniture business
to Clovis, California. Needing someone to build the furniture, they
approached my husband (Chris, their eldest son) who had been in
the carpentry business for 12 years. With his creativity and knowledge
of tools, Redwood Swings & Things was established.
2004, his parents sold the business to Chris and me, and we moved
it to our hometown of Auberry. Our main motivation for moving the
business is our three young children... Stepheny, Erik and Grace.
Being available for our children and able to attend their school
functions is a main priority for us. We are very fortunate to have
this situation. Our children are learning the ins and outs of the
business and are very helpful in many ways... which is hopeful in
the thought that one day they may be running the business. So to
sum it up... Chris is behind the tools, I myself (Vikki) am behind
the phone, and our children help in any way they can.
for joining us on our website and if you can catch us at one of
the shows... stop by our booth to say Hi, have a seat and relax
in our furniture.
Till then... Lots of happiness,
