Warmer days ahead signify that summer is finally on the way. Anyone who spends time with me in the summer knows of my passion for colorful retro vintage aluminum folding lawn chairs.
Thinking back, I realize that my love of vintage aluminum lawn chairs actually stems from my hatred of those terrible folding camping bag chairs that everyone has these days. I loathe them and I would rather sit on the ground than be hunched and squeezed into one of those terrible chairs. In response, I found a cute pink retro vintage aluminum folding lawn chair several years ago at an estate sale and started bringing it with me to summer parties and tailgates. I think we have four now because I just can’t resist buying a cute one when I see it.
What I love about vintage aluminum folding lawn chairs:
- Affordability (I don’t think I have ever paid more than $7 for a chair
- They are lightweight (thanks to the aluminum frame)
- They fold flat and are easy to pack into the car
- They are colorful
- They make you look cool and design conscious
- They are sturdy and comfortable
You can see a few more examples of these retro vintage aluminum folding lawn chairs in my Etsy Treasury below.
These are all currently available for sale on Etsy, but there are many other ways to find them.
Where to find retro vintage aluminum folding lawn chairs:
- Garage Sales
- Estate Sales (this is my favorite place to find them; they are especially common in the sales that span the decades)
- For a new version, a google search led me to Lawn Chair USA. They look nice and they are made in the USA.
