Home Furnishings

In this July 6, 2021, photo a sign is seen on a sold patio furniture floor model at Valley View Farms in Cockeysville, Md. People used to go to Valley View Farms to buy five tomato plants and end up with $5,000 in patio furniture. But this year is different. After a record burst of sales in March, the showroom floor is almost empty of outdoor chairs, tables and chaises for people to buy. The garden supply store in suburban Baltimore has been waiting six months for a shipping container from Vietnam. It's full of $100,000 worth of wicker and aluminum furniture. Half of the container has already been sold by showing customers photographs. The container should have arrived in February, but it reached U.S. waters on June 3 and has yet to dock in Long Beach, Calif.(AP Photo/Julio Cortez)
