The Legend of Grandpa’s MINI ROCKERS
Back in the 1940’s Don’s Grandfather Elbert (Abe) Palmer, worked at a Granite Mill in Salt Lake City, Utah. With a devoted career in wood-working, Abe started to build his Grandchildren mini rocking chairs of his own design.
What a special feeling the children felt when Grandpa Abe gave them their own Mini Rocker. As a child, Don loved rocking in his own special chair and now that rocker is the start of his own family’s heirlooms.
Don wanted to carry on his grandpa’s legacy. So now you can have your own hand-crafted Mini Rocker, made with the finest material, solid mahogany frames, and crafted oak. The dimensions are 22-inches tall, 19-inches wide and 20-inches in depth. The chairs withstand an adult weight but are designed for toddlers through 12 years of age.
Grandpa’s Mini Rockers have many prints and tapestry’s to choose from or you can send us 2 yards of your favorite material for your own custom rocker.
In Memory of Elbert (Abe) Palmer
