How to Choose A Broom - Round or Flat?

The Shakers brought the round broom design with them from Europe in the late 18th century and

until the invention of the broom press in 1878, round brooms were the broom of choice.  However

today, round brooms are unfamiliar to most folks.

Our customers find the round broom to be a superior sweeping broom because of the rounded

bottom.  This makes them excellent for all uneven surfaces in the home.  For instance, nooks and

crannies in hardwood floors, grout between tiles, slate entryways, board decks, brick patios and they

are terrific for cobwebs on your ceilings!  They also get around chair and table legs easily.

We recommend the traditional flat broom for large, smooth surfaces such as garages, carports,

driveways, sidewalks and for very large open rooms in your home.  The child's broom may also be

used in a RV.

We offer 2 ways to shop for a broom.  You can either use the quick, best-seller broom page or you

can custom build your new broom.

Due to our rural location, we use the United States Post Office to ship.  All broom prices include

shipping to the 48 contiguous states -- Alaska, Hawaii and all off-shore U.S. territories and

possessions are extra unfortunately.

And remember, don't hesitate to call us if you have any questions.  We're here to help you.
