Ooohhhh!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE shopping at the Rodeo Drive Resale online store. They have discounted designer handbags, shoes and clothing available. I have a weakness for St. John's knits and they get inventory on them from time to time. If you know what you like, check their website out before paying full price. They're still on the pricey side, but not nearly as much as you'd pay retail. I LOVE them!
When my husband inherited a coin collection from his uncle, we had no idea what it was worth or what to insure it for. We were given the name of the Americana Stamp & Coin Galleries by the lawyer and asked them to do an appraisal. They were able to give us all the information and certifications we needed to get the collection properly insured. We were happy with their professionalism and their experience.
Al Luongo Furniture Repair was able to fix an end table that had a cracked leg for us. They did such a good job on the repair, you would never have known anything was wrong. They worked quickly and had the table done within a week.
I found the most exquisite looking chest of drawers at a second hand store that I knew once it was refinished, it would be magnificent. After doing some research, I found A&J Furniture Repair. I was able to see some of their before and afters and trusted them with the job. I'm so glad I did! They took my treasure and transformed it. I was going to put the chest in the guest room, but it came out so well, we gave it to my parents as a gift. It was hard to part with it, but they love it so much.
I had been considering Botox but quite honestly, I'm scared to death about having needles in my face. My best friend went with me for a consultation at the LA Skincare Center. They were very friendly and the doctor explained the benefits and the issues with Botox. I'm still not ready for needles in my face, but haven't ruled it out. Yikes!
My friends and I decided to have our monthly girls' day out iat the Lili Beau Visage salon in LA. I decided on the Heavenly Rejuvenating Wrap and the Ultimate Facial - both of which were pure bliss. We each had different treatments and all of us swore we had the best treatment they offered. It turned out to be a nice, relaxing day.
When I was considering laser hair removal instead of getting waxed each month, I had a consultation with the Newskin Laser Center. The center is professional looking and intake person I spoke to was very informative and answered all of my questions. I'm not sure about using the lasers on my skin - especially around sensitive areas, but I at least now have more information about it.
We looked at California Energy Contractors for their energy efficient patio doors when we were renovating the backyard last summer. At first glance, they appeared to have a fine product with comprehensive installation and procurement pricing. Within a few weeks of installation, they informed us there was a mistake and that the price would be going up. We were stunned. We asked them for a detailed description and explanation, which we never got. My husband put an immediate stop on the deposit we had put down and fired them. I don't know what happened, but we were pretty angry.
When I was out running errands, I came across Sids's Carpet Barn. Since we're thinking about redecorating the living room, I wanted to see what my choices were for carpeting. They had a wide selection of various carpeting, but I was lost, not knowing what was best. The salesman in the store was busy with someone else and I couldn't wait for him to finish up. I may go back, but I was really just getting ideas.
When I went to visit one of my friends, I was so impressed by her hardwood floor, I had to know who did it. The Floor Kings were responsible for the incredibly rich floor. I contacted them for a quote to see how much it would cost to replace the flooring in my dining room. It was a little on the high side, but the quality of what they did in my friend's home was incredible.
