Leather repair

Have a sofa that needs some leather patch work and one cushion. Would like to get chair / ottoman / sofa / love seat cleaned and repaired, hopefully in the home rather than get all to a shop. Anyone have any leather places to recommend?

New Restaurant in Edison Park

How is the new restaurant in EP..Soup and Scoop? Assume it is take-out only. When did it open?

  • It's really cute in there. Soups change daily. I think they're made in the kitchen at Firewater and brought over. We had the potato leek and beef vegetable. Both were good, but just warm, not hot. I would definitely check out for lunch or pick up for a quick, cheap meal on the go.

  • It's dine-in or takeout too.

    Do they have a website?

I'm looking for a licensed electrician to reroute my over head wires from the house to the pole. Maybe someone who's works close with the city/com-ed since they have to OK it.

    Try giving Aurora Electric a call 630-486-1128 or you can email their email is located on their website www.AuroraElectricInc.com, unfortunately, I can't remember the name of the electrician that showed up to our home to do some work but he was very nice and I do remember that they were licensed. They did provide me with their license info when I asked for it. Best of luck!

Black and white cat

There is a cat that has been hanging around our backyard for about 6 months. It is black with white face and chest no tags. We are not cat people but are worried he / she will freeze to death out there. If he / she comes and goes we think she may have owners nearby. Will he / she survive in this cold?

  • Hi Silent..thanks for caring! There is a Facebook.group called Chicago.Community Cats you msybeish to.join. There are Feral Cat Shelters.

There are also do it yourself instructions online. Plastic storage containers with a hole for entry and straw and blankets for insulation. alleycat.org. also hsd info

Are you missing an aluminum soffit about 10 foot long?

Landed in my yard after last week's wind storm, near Odell and Clarence. Looking for owner.

    What color, how wide, Reynolds or Alcoa, so many questions so little time?

  • Do not know what brand it is. White on one side green on other side.

  • Brushman4 Serving the best since "53"

    Is it white on the inside and green on the outside, what about when you turn it upside down?
