Vintage Porch Swings (VPS) offers products that would fit perfectly in specific targeted geographic regions. VPS products are offered only through limited vendors who embody similar values. VPS orients around intelligent action and efficiency, quintessentially under-promising and over-delivering.
As stated, VPS hand-selects vendors strategically spaced in geographic regions targeted to be exclusive vendors of VPS products in that region. We do this for two reasons; first, to select vendors aligned in taste, quality and design who will ensure our products are well represented; and second, to ensure that we do not saturate a market. In partnering with VPS, the goal is to provide quality products through local businesses that increase gross sales/profits, satisfy current customers and attract new business.
Customer experiences are described in several vignettes we will share with you and can be used for marketing . We also can provide a brief brochure (pdf) that describes our products and business. Of course, our website, vintageporchswings.com, is a great one-stop resource providing all the details necessary.
In 2008 Brent McHenry’s wife Krista was in serious need of a place to relax. At the time she was the mother of twins, a newborn, and was pregnant with their fourth child. She designed a swing for their front porch and asked Brent to build it. Not long after Krista’s swing was finished, a neighbor stopped by and asked Brent to build one for his front porch too. Before long, Brent’s bed swings lined the streets of their neighborhood and the McHenry’s were being encouraged to showcase their swings online. Their website quickly took Brent’s hobby to a full-fledged business. Because Brent works full time as a biostatistician in cancer research, he assembled a team of local craftspeople and artists who he knew would continue to build the same quality of bed swing that he built for his wife, and would continue to treat his customers like neighbors.
The VPS team has since outgrown Brent’s garage, but they never lose sight of their goal of helping people create sanctuaries where they can relax, disconnect and spend time alone or with friends and family. The McHenry’s family has grown since then, and each bed swing design is named after one of their seven unique children or one of their special extended family members.
