"Real" customer service is alive & well

I had to write a post about my experience I just had last week. I had ordered my table & chairs for the sun room from Wicker Central & was very impressed with the company as far as ease of ordering, letting me know exactly when it would be shipped. It arrived on time & was securely packed so nothing was damaged. I was extremely happy with what I got, however, after about two weeks one of the chair cushions had a hole in the corner seam. I kinda shrugged it off & just sewed it back together deciding it wasn't worth making a big deal about. Then it happened to another one & the reason was the cushion didn't have enough material in the seams so the weight of someone sitting on them made the corner stitches rip out.

 I still didn't do anything but then I got an e-mail from them asking me to do a review on the product. While I was filling it out  a pop-up for a live chat came on the screen so I decided to "chat" with a representative.  His name was Scott ...shock #1,  His real picture was on the screen....shock #2.  He asked me to send a picture of the cushions I was having problems with & to go ahead & fill out the review & submit it.  I e-mailed the pics & before I even went back downstairs my cell phone was ringing.  It was Scott calling me to find out the design name of the cushions as they were going send me new ones!  Shock #3

Right after that I went out to get the mail & this handwritten thank you card was in my mail box.

How many people do you know that still write thank you cards?

How many companies take the time to write a thank you card to their customers?

I would definitely recommend this company to anyone I know!


  1. I'm speechless. This just doesn't happen anymore. What a great company.
    Who knows perhaps it will catch on again....don't burst my bubble!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
