“The country store definitely changes for the seasons,” says MacLean. “Fall and Christmas are big here.”
A variety of gourds, pumpkins, cornstalks, and wagons are now available to make your house ready for autumn. Christmas time will bring fresh Christmas trees, ornaments, and garland. It’s a one-stop shop for your decorating and gift needs.
It isn’t just seasonal, however. Candles, wreathes, placemats, and hand-braided rugs are just a few of the products the country store houses. There are even hand-crafted seat cushions in a variety of fabrics and colors. Need more gift ideas? Amish-made furniture including hutches, tables, and pottery are unique, one-of-a-kind options for whoever you may be gift-shopping for.
“There is so much in the country store I couldn’t even begin to name it all,” MacLean laughs.
The options may seem overwhelming, but never fear - the staff at Swings ‘N’ Things is there to help you choose the perfect gift. Their website, swings-things.com has photos of some of their available product to give you ideas. The store also has a Facebook page, Donna’s Swings-n-Things, highlighting in-store events, new merchandise, and great sales.
“The best way to see what we have is to come on in,” MacLean says. “We definitely have a gift for everyone.”
