Custom cushion for window seat - vendor recommendations?

Hi, neighbors,

I am looking for a business that makes custom window seat cushions. Would also possibly have them make new covers for my outdoor cushions in the spring. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks!

  • Thanks, Janet and Scott, for the local recommendations!

  • Bell Upholstery on Sedgwick (around 1400 N) does a nice job and is very reasonable. I had a bench reupholstered., need pad and support, etc. Get specifics on hours because he closes for lunch.

Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 -

Hi...thought I would try this. Dropped my cell phone and trying to find replacement. Anyone have a Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 hanging around? WIll pay! Thanks!

  • atennislover: I do not have a phone for you but was interested in any responses. I have been looking for an iPhone 5s for my son that does not cost an arm and a leg, is not stolen, and will work. I thought to offer $50 more than what Gazelle would pay for it. So I hope that you get some good responses and that this becomes a good resource for such needs.

    Thank you.

Car share - thoughts?

HI...just wondering if people can share their experiences (good and bad) with car sharing programs (igo, zipcar)? Are cars available when you need/want them - especially last minute?

  • i've always had a great experience with zipcar. If you take the car out of town just make sure you know how many miles you're allowed before they start charging extra.

  • Joshua Iz It iz what it iz.

    Zipcar is great and there are lots of locations. If it's last minute on the weekend you might have to go a few blocks farther but there are always cars available.

  • Em Ro evening is the whole day

    Zipcar is great unless what you're doing something has a time variable. I use zip car every few months to take my pets to the vet. Even though I plan and book it for extra time, if the vet runs late, checkout is slow, or traffic is bad, you're left stressing and speeding back, knowing you'll be out $50 or whatever the late fee is. I've never been late, but there have been times where I've pulled in with 1 minute to spare...and I was sweating bullets!
