SEARCH IS YOUR VERY BEST FRIEND!

The best place to begin EVERY time you come to the store to shop is the Search Box. It’s conveniently positioned at the top of each page next to the magnifying glass. This tool can help you FIND WHAT YOU WANT SUPER FAST. Be as specific as possible with your search terms; e.g. 7/8 Metal Rod vs. Rods. This increases speed and accuracy. Small photos are displayed giving you a quick look at the items. Pick one and you’ll be taken direct to the product page.

FIVE SIMPLE PRODUCT CATEGORIES GET YOU THERE QUICKLY

Rods | Finials | Brackets | Rings | Accessories

Five different tabs, one for each of the individual product categories, are now right in front of you at all times. Place your cursor on a tab and you get a drop down menu that can take you directly to the type of product you want.

Objects You May Desire

Click on the first row of each drop down menu and you get a special page that's been created for each of the five different product categories. This page gives you additional information about the category and displays a series of boxes containing objects representative of the types of products contained in a particular group. Scroll down the page and you'll learn more about a featured item like our favorite "Turkish Monkey Finial".
