A different kind of service...

My wife and I owned Carole’s Southern Charm next to the North Georgia Premium Outlet Mall in Dawsonville, GA from 2003-2015. We sold custom floral arrangements, home decor and patio furniture. We also sold Christmas items year-round but went really big at Christmas. So big, in fact, some people referred to us as “the Christmas Store.”

When we retired in 2015, we had so many customers that had purchased patio furniture over the years, I struggled with how they would be served in the future. Where would they get warranties serviced? How would they be able to add to or replace their furniture? Where would they get replacement cushions? Thus, Southern Comfort Porch & Patio was born.

I am still semi-retired but it gets quite busy during the Spring and Fall. I do NOT have a “brick and mortar” type store. I work from my home (and my truck). I have little to no overhead and I have tried to make it easy to buy from me via my web site. I still have relationships with the vendors/manufacturers that I had when we were Carole’s Southern Charm. However, without the overhead, I can give the best prices available.

So, if you know what you want, call me and I will give you a quote. If you need help, I will make “house calls” in the North Georgia Area. I will teach you the basic construction of outdoor furniture and the benefits of each type. I will assist you with design and selection of furniture and fabrics...over 300 fabrics from which to select. This service is under NO OBLIGATION AND IS TOTALLY FREE! This is my investment in you in hopes that you will see the value that I bring to your purchase and you will buy from me.

I need to be clear...I do not sell low-end product. I only sell products which I am sold on. After 20+ years of experience with various products and vendors, I have seen the bad ones and I have seen the good ones. I have decided to stick with some of the best and I hope that you will too. So, give me a try!
