Custom handmade Amish wood furniture takes time to build. Before you go to the store, you should know that the floor samples are not always available to be purchased on the spot. Store employees will gladly show you the catalogs with all your options. Our first purchase was a television stand that cost $429 and was made of solid red oak (the least expensive wood option). We had priced stands at a retail furniture showroon that cost around $389 but they were made of fiber board and were built "overseas." The cost versus quality made the solid oak stand a real bargain. If you go to the store during a sale, be prepared to wait in line because people wait for this store's sales. We usually purchase and/or order one or two pieces during sales to spread out the cost of this fine quality furniture. Since the television stand, we've purchased a dining room table and chairs, sideboard, jelly cabinet, lift-top cocktail table, reclining love seat, a computer desk and three wooden folding chairs. At upcoming sales, we plan to purchase end tables and bedroom furniture. We haven't decided if we're going to get a bedroom dresser with a mirror that is also a television screen, but it's a very unique piece. The store isn't a big box chain store and isn't for those with a big box chain store budget or mentality when it comes to furniture, but for those who appreciate quality pieces that will become family heirlooms, this is the place to buy furniture. The store also sells table linens, candles, gourmet popcorn, dip and soup mixes, canned goods, hard candy and other items unique to a country store. They're open seven days a week and it's a cute place to stop if you're out for a drive. We love this place!

The quality of the furniture at Gigglin' Pig is excellent, however it is not inexpensive. Be prepared to pay for this quality. The reason I am rating two stars is the problem we had with their customer service. To begin with we read that furniture was available for one year, no interest financing. Once we had decided on our purchase we were told that the financing was not available, because our purchases were "floor models". When we pointed out that the ad said "all furniture" we were told that this didn't include floor models. Finally this was resolved and we got the no interest financing. Once we got the furniture home, we decided that the office chair was not suitable because the arms of the chair kept bumping into the desk. Two days post delivery I called and asked if the chair could be exchanged for one with no arms. We would be willing to wait for the chair to be ordered. We were told that the chair with arms could be returned, but we would have to wait for it to be resold before we could get the chair without arms. We were told this could be six days or six months! Poor customer service. We won't purchase from Gigglin' Pig again. Would not recommend this establishment.

I was in the store a few weeks ago looking for an entertainment center. I found one I liked and went back on a Saturday to purchase it. When I finished making my purchases I was told that I could not take the $850.00 entertainment stand with me because the store was having a sale and no furniture could leave the premises during a sale. I was shocked. We talked to a store employee who did not seem to agree with the stores policy but what could he do he is not the owner. I then talked to the owner which was very nasty and arrogant. He did not seem to care if we shopped in his store or not. He was more concerned with the piece of furniture staying on the floor so people that come in might see the piece and want to buy it, then the person that is already in the store ready to spend $850.00 on it. What if you came from 100 miles away to pick it up? Do you think you would want to come back to buy it and make 2 trips on an expensive piece of furniture? Not me. I bought elsewhere. I like the store but wish it had owners that cared about their customers that are IN THE STORE and not the ones that might come in. Not a good way to run a business. I wont be back to buy any of their furniture and will not recommend them to anyone.

To the person complaining about prices. The prices for what you get are pretty much what you should expect when getting solid real wood furniture. Just because you can not afford the furniture giving them a poor review is tasteless. I heard walmart runs good specials.
I loved their store and will go back.

The service we received was fantastic from both the store personnel and the delivery men! They have a great selection, the highest quality furniture and not too expensive for what you receive! It is a great country store! I wish they were closer to me... but then I'd be broke! We couldn't recommend a better furniture store!

Unfortunatly, after visiting the Giggling Pig I realized that you can't always get what you want. Although they have amazing works of art, furniture, general decorations, etc, the prices are just too steep for many of us. Relatively simple TV stands for well over $400 just wasn't my cup of tea. In the future, if I had some more money I would love to decorate my entire home with this motif, but for the average person it just may not be possible at the Giggling Pig.

If you've never been there, it is worth the trip. They have everything from wood furniture to candles to cookie cutters. They offer all the latest trends in country decorating and they have great sales!! The staff are very friendly and helpful and the selection is good. Great place to shop if you need a gift for the person who has everything.

PROS: price and selection
CONS: location
