Front Porch / Blue River Traders


Welcome to Blue River Traders and The Front Porch! We’re a small, family-run business located in Manhattan, Kansas. We offer a wide variety of custom and handcrafted furniture, including artesian pieces that will be in your family for years to come. We also bring you other treasures, such as hand-made copper and metal art, unique home decor, Western art, and much more. Blue River Traders is also home to The Front Porch. For over 20 years The Front Porch was located in the Manhattan Town Center Mall. We have closed our doors at the mall and moved in with our sister store, but we continue to carry a large selection of Willow Tree figurines including some of the new pet line. Come visit Blue River Traders / The Front Porch near the intersection of Marlatt & Tuttle Creek Blvd in Manhattan! “It Just Feels Like Home!”
