NO COOKIES FOR YOU! While my website may not be slick, it serves me fine. You won't see a permission request for cookies. I have had this website since 2013, and I don't have to pass a high maintenance & design cost along to my customers. Under $1,100 for eight years of website use is not bad.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
Would a thousand pictures be worth a crashed computer?
In any case, I have consolidated photographs onto my
YouTube channel Playlist.
There are a handful of short videos, most shorter than five minutes.
I support local food pantry's
I have had to move my business away from small jobs. However, over the last few years, I have done 58 small jobs for total donations of:
$6,139 to local food pantries.
Some of my clients have employers who offer matching donations to legitimate charities, and have utilized that benefit to contribute to those pantries.
Ready To Assemble (RTA) Furniture and other home products (Storage sheds, swing sets, weight machines, rowing machines, cardio machines, etc) are our specialty.
Due to customer demand, we now offer hanging services; (stuff, not people); Pictures, Mirrors, TV's, Assorted Sculptures, Storage Racks, Bulletin Boards, etc. No charge for small hooks, or adding wire to new frames, or replacing wire on very old frames.
About our clientele:
Given the name of this website, one might assume the clients are; mechanically challenged, two left-thumbed fools
with severe tool allergies.
Far from it.
Our clients include; successful competent people with six and seven figure incomes, U. of C. students in Hyde Park,
Northwestern students in Evanston.
They all know the value of RTA furniture,
and the value of their own time.
Yes, they could assemble the furniture themselves,
and do a good job.
But time is valuable, so they pay me,
because they have more important things to do.
