When I needed to get the straggly looking overgrown trees in my front yard trimmed, I chose Leone Brothers Total Tree Care out of the phone book. They came over, got down to business and cleaned up after themselves all at a reasonable price.
I take my dogs to the Playful Paws whenever I can so they can get the doggie daycamp experience. They take such good care of them, play with them, keep them exercised and above all, happy.
We used the Guardian Angel Pet Sitting service when we had to get out of town on a mental health break. Guardian Angel was a very good choice at alleviating my guilt over leaving my doggies and took really good care of them.
The On Broadway Pet Grooming Salon is our groomers of choice if we can get in! We tend to book our appointments at the last minute, and can't always get in. But when we do- the doggies come out pretty nifty.
I went into the Karma Designer Consignment Boutique with friends after hearing about the designer purses they scored at great prices. They weren't lying. I picked up several bags for the price of what I would normally pay for one retail. Enjoyed going there immensly.
During the renovation of a historic house, we needed the services of a furniture restorer with a solid background in antique furniture. We found exactly what we needed in the Blackstone Furniture Restorers. They were very detailed oriented going over how they were going to approach the furniture we needed restored and their methods as well. Very impressed with them. Quality results that speak for themselves.
My husband loves anything and everything having to do with ships and the sea. I found the Lannan Ship Model Gallery and have purchased many a piece for him there. Their items are of high quality with some very unusual maritime pieces that have added nicely to our collection.
I bought a dress off the rack for a cocktail party and needed it altered in a hurry. I was hesitant to take it just anywhere because of the delicate fabric and beading, so I chose Gus House for Alterations after doing some research. My dress came out fabulous! The workmanship was flawless and it fit just perfectly.
Bostonian Tailoring has done a few repairs for me on garmets that needed buttons sewn, hems redone and zippers. They're alwasy pleasant and friendly and they seem to get whatever I need done very quickly.
Vinnie the Tailor does very well with hems, cuffs, buttons and zippers. This is a very small shop and I've only ever seen Vinnie. He's another one who has no filters when it comes to making editiorial comments about the clothes you bring in - or happen to be wearing - when you go there. All in all, good work on small repairs, reasonably priced.
