Everyday people call, write and even walk in the door with questions about their furniture.
Can this be fixed?
How do I remove a white ring from my table top?
Is it ok to refinish Grandmas rocking chair? I want to to give it to my daughter.
I lost the dohicky the holds my bed together. Do you know where to get a new one and by the way, what is it called?
I'm more than happy to help in any way I can so I thought I would share some of the questions and answers here.
In addition to questions there are so many stories associated with our customers and or their furniture.
Just last week an elderly gentleman walked into our shop carrying a small chair. He needed a couple of screws to hold the seat cushion on. I went and grabbed a drill, ran in a couple of screws and said: "There you go!" He said:"How much?" I told him it was on the house. It took all of two minutes. He stood back and said: "Well you don't know who you just saved!" my name is Ted Robinson and in world war II I got orders to go out and rescue a PT boat crew. Well the man I saved from PT109 was John F. Kennedy and that moment changed my life. I've traveled all over the world and could call the President of the United States my friend. My cane and camera are in the Smithsonian next to a picture of me and the furture President.
Doris and I were honored to shake his hand. I carried his chair back out to his car. It turned out to be an interesting day.
Well if you've got a story about your treasured family heirlooms or a question about a missing dohicky please share them here. We'd love to hear from you.
