You’ve tried the rest…

This past weekend, we attended the WNEP Home & Backyard Expo 2012 at the Wyoming Valley Mall in Wilkes-Barre, PA.  It was an extremely well run event and we had a fantastic time meeting people interested in line drying.  As a web-based retailer, one of the things that we really appreciate about shows is our ability to have people see and feel the difference in Hills Clotheslines and Drying Racks.  Sure, I’ve said this before, but there is honestly no comparison with the “comparable” products out there.  And by that I mean if you go into a big box retailer and try to look for a clothesline, you will find 3 facts to be true:

1. The selection is minimal, most often a cloth line that you would string from tree to tree and need to prop to keep your clothes from brushing the ground.

2. If there are options, they are unattractive options.  Nothing special.  You work hard to make your home attractive and your yard and garden lovely…you should have the option of choosing from products that are not only functional but modern and styled to fit in with your surroundings, not stick out like a sore thumb.

3.  Products that are very cheaply made, because anyone looking for a clothesline cannot be expecting very much.  These are not meant to last long (designed to last 2-3 years at most), then you will be back to spend your money on another very soon.

I am not trying to knock an individual’s method of line-drying; however you do it, whenever and wherever, it is a wonderful thing that you are doing for so many reasons.  But Hills products are built to last; you have tried the rest, now try the best.  (yes, I had to say it.)  Being at a show or expo lets us bring the products to those interested and show them that there are choices out there, and so many of them.  Colors, sizes, styles…Hills has thought of it all and their products are constantly and consistently refined, and they listen to their customers.  Where do you find that anymore?  That is why we are happy to bring such quality to Americans who want to take a bit better care of their clothes and their wallets.  The Return On Investment (ROI) of Hills clotheslines and drying racks used regularly is less than a year.

We will let you in ASAP on the next show that we will be attending.  And if you want to give line drying a try, or if you have been line-drying for years and want to upgrade to products that will last decades beyond their warranty and will save money and energy, come see us!  We love to discuss the virtues of line drying.

If you have been browsing through our website you may notice some changes to a few of our product names. Recently our fabulous Quatro 4 and Sietro 6 Retractable clotheslines are now known as the Extenda 4 and the Sietro 6.

The Hills Rotary Clothesline – the Rotary 400- Medium in Forest Glade is  now the Rotary 6 – “Medium” Forest Glade.

The Hills Folding Frame – Supa Fold 210 in Pebble Beach is now the Supa Fold Mono-Pebble Beach

We will be making additional changes in the coming months. But not to worry it’s still the same excellent Hills quality you know and love. Hills is always improving on what is already a great product.

As always, if you have any questions you can post them on our blog,  email us at or call us at 877-794-0379.

Change is coming . . . but it is a good thing!
