Note for local customers:

With the closing of mail order last year, I have officially “semi-retired”. This means local work only, and not necessarily the keeping  of a regular schedule.  After doing this since 1997 (24 years !) It’s time for me and my husband to slow down: work less and play more. I am grateful we are able to do so. What this means for you, my  loyal local customers, is that while I will try to keep a regular schedule of pickup and delivery when I can, there will be times when cannot guarantee a weekly pickup, especially during ski season, bike season, or boating season.   If timing of your repair is an issue, please contact me and we can discuss. I am happy to communicate about timing and options.
