Amish Made Lighthouses

For those who are in the business of selling outdoor accessories this article is going to be a real treat. Amish made lighthouses and other nautical décor is one of the hottest selling items on the market today. When you combine the popularity of lighthouses and other nautical décor with the popularity of Amish built products, you have a winning combination that will allow for strong sales of these products.

There are of course certain criteria you must seek if you are a retail establishment or dealer of these types of products.

Questions you want to have answered by the lighthouse manufacturer are:

1. How long have they been in business

2. Do they have a state of the art website that can assist you in the sale of their product line

3. Do they offer a complete line of nautical décor

4. Are they hand made

5. Do they ship and drop ship directly to your customers

6. How strong is the profit margin

These and other questions will assure that you are connecting with a solid Amish built product line that can be extremely profitable for retail establishments and dealers.



Let’s take a moment to address some of the above questions. If a company has been in business for a long period of time, you are able to talk with their retail customers to find out just how strong sales are of their product line. Remember that nautical décor in many parts of our Country are very popular and very much in demand.

A website should offer a place for your customers to view the entire product line offered. The website should also have a back end that allows you to purchase your products directly online.

While lighthouses are by far the most popular, there are many other nautical décor items that offer tremendous up sell opportunities. Some of these products might include:

1. Pier Post

2. Whirly Birds – Very popular

3. Nautical Solar Post

4. Mailboxes

5. Windmills

6. Birdhouses

7. Buoys

Each of the above nautical décor products are in high demand and offer large sales opportunities for retail establishments and dealers.

When you find the right Amish manufacturer you are able to use their reputation and their product line within all your sales material. This is a Hugh benefit and makes your job of selling the product line very easy.

While most Amish manufacturing plants will offer shipping by the pallet, will they drop ship to your customers. There are many ways to offer your products to the public. Retail establishments can place a few products within their establishment and then offer a catalog to choose from with a price list they determine.

Once the sale has been made the next question is does the manufacturer drop ship. In most cases the retail establishment is not going to inventory all the different products. If the manufacturer offers the option of drop shipping the orders with the retail establishments label, this makes the whole process a lot easier.


Beaver Dam offers a large variety of nautical décor including lighthouses. They also offer drop shipping and flexible terms and have been in business for over 20 years.
