Salty Loungers

Salty Lounger, Charleston, S.C.


I walked by a yard sale in my neighborhood this morning and as often happens, the only thing that caught my eye was the one thing that probably wasn't for sale. I told the owner that I had often admired the chair he was sitting on. It turns out I hit the jackpot and had happened upon the craftsman who made the actual chair. Ha!

They are called Salty Loungers and I bought two from his work shop. They are already delivered and in my yard. They fold up nicely and come in optional stains and paints. They have a Facebook site at Salty Loungers. Turns out my exercise walks aren't always without cost but in this case I got lucky.

  1. As an amateur woodworker I can appreciate his craftsmanship. And they look darn comfy, too. Excellent find!

    1. Something very nice about buying from the person who made them. They are comfortable. A little low perhaps but not a problem. They fold up and are pretty light.

    Wishing you lots of fun with your Salty Loungers (love that name!),

    1. Always feels good to have made a connection with the craftsman, doesn't it?
