Thank you for taking the time for reviewing our online catalog. Our products are made by Amish folk, who prefer to live the simple life. Kilmer's was formed in 1999 and began to sell online in January 2000 (which makes us "middle age" in internet years). The Amish craftesmen are friends of ours, whom we have known for years. We at Kilmer's started as a hobby trying to sell a few swings for an Amish friend - the hobby got a bit out of hand.
Our Amish crafted outdoor furniture is made in an Amish communities located outside of St. Ignatius in Western Montana. All our products are made in Amish owned, Amish run shops, and all the workmanship is done with an eye towards quality. A great deal of pride and workmanship truly goes in each piece that is produced. The woodworkers who produce our furniture & gazebos come from a long line of hard working, simple folk, who strive to produce quality affordable furniture. We stress the workmanship as Amish crafted, as this truely means quality. We do not sell any items that are not Amish crafted. Everything we sell is made in the USA.
The most frequently asked question is "why are our prices affordable?" Frankly, we buy the cedar directly from a local cedar mill, and our products comes directly from Amish workshops to you - our products aren't warehoused and shipped 2 or 3 times in the process. The prices are a not set to gouge our buyers, but at fair market value.

RETURNS: Unfortunately, as all items come directly out of private workshops, we will only replace damaged items or componets due to shipping. The Amish never return any item because they don't like the color or style, but will make it a thoughtful gift to another. Shipping is relatively expensive, making returns impractical. We will also replace slats or componets if the buyer believes something isn't quite right when he receives their order. If you really do not like the item, and have not assembled it - we will accept a return, but you (the buyer) must pay for the shipping.
