Porcelain Home Decor has the greatest selection of porcelain vases I've ever seen. Their color, size and overall appearance look great and blends with everything in my house. I've also gotten a great fountain from them. I go there because of their great selections, reasonable prices and dynamite customer service.
The exercise equipment from West Coast Wellness Equipment Service was beyond our financial means. They were very knowledgeable and talked about financing options, but they seemed more interested in our fianances than on what we actually wanted. I didn't think their equipment was any different from the others that we've seen.
We're outfitting our backroom into a mini gym for us. We've been slowly turning it over and have been looking for the best prices for used equipment. Nevada Fitness Systems had a collection we looked at, but since we went to them first, I want to see what others have offer before we buy anything. They had a good selection to choose from, but I didn't like the salesperson who was trying to close the sale right then and there.
My boyfriend owns several dirt bikes, a motor bike and a motorcycle. He'll only pick up parts for the bikes from Ridenow Powersports On Rancho if he's desperate. Their customer service is the pits - they will ignore you when you walk in. I wish he wouldn't go there at all - he's been lied to in the past and he's gotten so mad at them. There's got to be a reputable dealer around for him to use other than these morons.
The Big Red Balloon has provided the balloon drops at several of the conventions I've gone to. They've also provided the balloon arches at the grand opening of one of my commercial properties to attract attention and excitement. They know what they're doing and will work with your timeline and budget.
Tolstoy's has some unique gifts for those who are hard to buy for. I like their pewter globes inset with semi precious jewels and have picked up some of their Cartier pens as gifts before.
I don't know - call me picky, but if I take the time to pick out an arrangement and send it to someone, I want it to last. I sent a thank you arrangement to a friend who's also one of my clients from Flower by Palm. The arrangement was very pretty, but within a week it was dead. It should have lasted longer for the price I paid.
I was looking for a very specific Willow Tree collectible figurine for my pregnant friend and couldn't find it anywhere. I thought for sure I would find it at Collectible City, but they didn't have it. The lady in the shop was very nice but told me if it wasn't on display, they didn't have it. The did have an interesting array of other things, but I really wanted this one figurine.
I looked at Uppleger's Gifts & Jewelry for a pair of earrings for my daughter's birthday. I was unimpressed by their selection and questioned the authenticity of their jewelry. When I was there, another customer walked in wanting to return a pair of earrings that caused an infection. If the jewelry were quality, they wouldn't have caused an infection.
I had no idea what I was walking into when I walked into the Not Just Antiques Mart with my mother. To say the place is huge is an understatement. It's beyond huge - it would take a person a week to go through everything that they have. We went because I heard they had a tea room and wanted to spend some time with my mom. We eventually made our way there, but were sidetracked by all the great antiques they had on display. Wow - there's no other way to put it.
