i had an Ansel Adams photograph that inherited years ago. i wanted to get it framed but didn't want to go to a big retailer because i was concerned something might happen to it. i went to beverly hills to get it appraised first and decided to choose the frame depending on what it was worth. well, it turns out the thing is worth over $3000. i couldn't believe it. the appraiser told me that i was crazy to carry it around without a frame. i decided to get one that very day. i happened to be heading home when i saw the sign of the store. I immediately did a u-turn and went to the store. i asked the staff to take special care of the photo and they reassured me that they had many years of experience, even doing some work for bonhams and butterfields and other auctions houses. they helped me choose the right frame and they did the work on the spot. and like they said they took special care for the photo. all finished, my artwork looks not only professional but museum quality. it cost a lot but being that the piece is worth so much i didn't hesitate on spending more. happy with the service and products.

Green image was working on a neighbor's lawn. i got them to come to my house and work on my lawn. it had not been well cared for in a long time. They arrived quickly and were done within one hour. i came out to look at the job and saw that all they had done was mow the lawn and cleaned up a little. They offered to trim the trees for extra but i declined. I think maybe i was expecting a little too much but 30 dollars for one hour's work is a bit overpriced. Next time i will get the neighbor's kid to do the job for half the money.

i went to several retail stores to buy patio furniture. what i have found is that they don't have a great selection because they sell in bulk. i went to Gibsons as i was driving home from one of the retail stores and found a decent selection of furniture. they had various styles and designs. i found the perfect wicker set to add to my current set that i already have. they match really nicely. they didn't have really exceptional prices but they were reasonable and i don't know where else i would have found a set like the one i got from them.

i needed new carpeting for the new house. i chose this company from the yellow pages. i called them up and they sent over a guy with carpet samples. he gave me a decent estimate. i did not have time to "shop around" so i picked out a carpet style and color on the spot and scheduled the service. they started the job a few weeks later and completed the installation in a few days. this company won't give you any discounts and there are no special incentives but they do an adequate job in decent time. So far there are no problems with the carpeting.

i was planning to host a party for some friends. i wanted to keep them out of the heat so i decided to get an awning for the patio area. i went with this company based on a recommendation from a friend. they helped me pick out the one that best suited my budget and home. they also provided me with free accessories like patio lights and an awning cleaning kit. the installation took half a day and they knew what they were doing. this is a great company with quality products but beware, they can be extremely pricey especially when it comes to patio furniture. if you want less expensive stuff go to a big retailer.

the drying machine shut off before my clothes became fully dried. i tried several things like shutting the power on and off but nothing seemed to work. i did not know where to call and tried this company and told them my problem. they came in and tried fooling with the power like i had but nothing worked. then they moved the machine and detached the exhaust and found a huge wad of lint. it was literally a basketball-sized wad. that apparently was the problem; the machine began working again. they ended up billing me a huge amount for just ten minutes of work. i did not think that was fair but paid anyway. if your dryer stops working, i suggest doing some research on a DIY website and trying to fix it yourself because with a dryer i have discovered that it is often a lint problem.

i threw out my bad sleeping on the terrible mattress i slept on. it was sunken in the middle and torn along the seams. as i lay on the floor, i realized that I had the bed for over fifteen years. i decided it was finally time for a new mattress. i went to store called "good night mattress." it is not a big store but has a decent selection of mattresses. i was surprised at the advanced state in the science of mattresses. i chose a generic one at first but changed my mind when i realized that the one i had currently was a generic brand. the salesman recommended a tempurpedic, telling me about how it was layered and that he himself had one at home. it was a bit pricey but with a monthly installment plan, i decided it was worth it. i was expecting a huge shipping fee but it turned out that they have their own movers and that shipping would be at no charge. the mattress arrived the next day and even took away my old unwanted mattress. i am happy with the bed.

last winter i decided to get a heater for the pool. we always used our pool in the summer but would leave the pool alone in the off-season. i went to Aqua because it is a local company what sells pool supplies. they have a vast selection of all kinds of things you might need for your pool from pool toys to chlorine tabs. i told the salesman the size and style of our pool and he immediately recommended one that seemed too big for our pool and he also recommended a solar blanket to help maintain the heat. i decided on a smaller heater and decided not to go with the blanket because it was not in my budget. i called a friend of mine who happens to be a specialist in pools and helped install the heater. it turned out that the heater was defective. they allowed me to exchange the system and the second one worked like a charm. I went on the internet to research the heater and was disappointed to find another store selling it for a cheaper price. my friend did recommend the solar blanket but i plan one trying another store.
