Karen Saharack does beautiful calligraphy for wedding and other invitations and announcements. She also makes custom invitations and stationary. Karen did the calligraphy for 5 of our major family functions over the past 15 years or more. Karen is very creative, low key and relaxed. She is a perfectionist and rarely did I ever notice an error. Her script is fluid and distinctive. I think she works with two different font styles. All her work is done painstakingly by hand including lovely watercolor designs for custom invitations. She is very professional and organized.
I have ordered on line or in person from Lonnie. She does all the personalizing for a wide selection of gifts in house. Beautiful computerized embroidery in a wide choice of colors. Lonnie is delightful to work with. The prices are moderate and service is excellent.
We hired ARA to remodel our kitchen, two bathrooms, install can lighting and hardwood floor on the entire first level of our home. We decided on ARA after hearing about and seeing work done by the company. We felt confident they would deliver what they promised and they did. We worked with Sheldon who always responded to every question with a great deal of patience. The job was finished within the time frame and price we contracted for. Any followup details were taken care of too. I will return to ARA for any future needs. Very reliable.
I have purchased window treatments from Myrna at Walls on Wheels for about 20 years. Myrna comes to your home and brings samples from a wide variety of name brand sources. In addition, she works with a top notch installation guy so the work always turns out perfect. Prices are reasonable, service is excellent and I highly recommend this company.
Poppie's Dough is a commercial bakery which handles individual orders as well. They provided personal service by customizing a special cookie design for a bridal shower party favor for me recently. Cookie trays and a wide variety of bakery items are available as well as the original cans and foil packs of "Poppie's Cookies". Poppie is a real person...a charming, sassy and unforgettable character now in his 80's and retired.
We have been to Park Street several times. I always feel like I am eating at a cafe in the city. (Chicago)
The food is good and the atmosphere nice. I will return visit and recommend.
This is a cute Judaica shop with a variety of options and price ranges. The service is personal and pleasant. We have done special orders with them also.
I can't say enough wonderful things about Doris Bridal Boutique. Purchased two daughter's gowns, an evening gown and bridesmaids dresses. Yes, the alterations are outstanding, service is fabulous. Make an appointment. I think Doris may be semi-retired, but Annette carries on. I hope daughter #3 will select her gown here also.
Good trustworthy mechanics. Family owned, nice people. I have had them do a variety of repairs on different cars. Prices are comparable to a dealership, but the service is very personal.
This is where I go for transmission work and change of transmission fluid. The prices are moderate and Cesar runs a good shop. They specialize in transmission work only, and I have always been happy with the work.
