Stone garden bench ? ( GE/Vaud area )

ok kids 'n kidders, once again I need someone to tell me where to go (careful now !?! )

With a few changes happening in our garden I'm looking for a stone garden bench, something along the lines of the one pictured below but it doesn't need to be so ornate.

I know there are several reclaim-salvage yards around but I was wondering if anyone might have seen anything like this in their recent travels ( I'm already going to be travelling all over the canton looking for samphire so I was hoping to limit the trips.

I had no idea they cost this much: http://webcache.googleusercontent.co...=www.google.ch

I'm guessing, just like everything else in our house, the original owners paid a small fortune for it. Better lock my garden gate - or someone might just think they are a nice find for free.

EDIT: Here's a less expensive one: http://www.ricardo.ch/kaufen/handwer...v/an640193696/

On a more serious note,

They surely have them at Schillinger in Gland, but it will lighten your wallet significantly.

This place in Allaman will likely have something, although I wasn't looking for a bench when I was there. Cornaz www.cornaz.ch

CreaBeton also likely has something, I believe you can order from their catalog but they do have an office in VD. http://www.creabeton.ch/index_fr.html

There is an ornate marble/stone decorating place for gardens etc. just to the Geneva side of Rolle on the lakeroad, not sure of the name, but likely has something as well.

You can also order through Neogard, here is one in their catalog for 1075 chf. http://www.neogard.ch/fileadmin/reda...f/Ambiance.pdf
Also note that Schilling is a distributer for neogard, so somewhat slightly easier to order through them, and they can arrange delivery.

Re: Stone garden bench ? ( GE/Vaud area )

Thanks RD...I went to one reclaim yard out in Etoy a few weeks ago as well as one just my side of Schilliger but they didn't have anything appropriate.

Schilligers themselves.... I buy my plants from there generally but furniture?... I just laugh when I look at their prices... funny money

thanks for the leads on the other places tho.
