Why The Swamp Log?
An old Bishopville building is home to a store unlike any you have ever experienced. Gift shop, furniture store, local history museum, and art gallery, it is all these things. There is an inventory here found nowhere else.
Unique handmade heirloom quality items created by skilled artisans from local natural materials such as 'sinker' lumber.
Cool water perfectly preserves what are known as sinker logs, which lay on river bottoms for hundreds of years. These magnificent sinker cypress and sinker pine logs are considered to be buried treasure, because once recovered, they yield the richest patina of any wood.
The Swamp Log is a store like no other! You walk in and are greeted by the owner who’s so eager to help and full of knowledge. This store is one you can walk around for hours! From furniture to paintings for every budget! If ever in town this the store you must check out!
