TravelChair fashions light, foldable camp chairs using durable materials, and the Bubba’s deep seat can support bodies up to 300 pounds. Each throne’s double-coated polyester seat is reinforced to resist tearing and stretching, and oversized, solid nylon feet keep the contraption from sinking into soft soil, sand, or backyard butter pits. Groupon holders can also choose to adopt a junior member of the TravelChair team, such as the Sidewinder’s tripod stool, which cushions tushes with closed-cell foam padding ($20). Or, sitters can snag a self-inflating air-foam cushion to buttress butts atop TravelChair thrones or space-shuttle ejection seats ($15). Shipping is not included with today’s deal.
After opening their doors in 1986, the backyard beautifiers at Rosedale Gardens have continued to stock their full-service nursery with backyard essentials to keep homes lively year-round. The sprawling, 5-acre-plus campus boasts inspirational lawn arrangements and a vast inventory of accessories to help to foster budding green thumbs. Along with a panoply of blooming buds, the expansive inventory includes garden structures, ground coverings, and aquatic additions to help to realize the dreams of fish that always wanted to become garden gnomes. Skillfully shaped shrubbery inspires patrons to awaken their inner Scissorhands, and a range of bare-root trees stands as sanctuary for backyard birds. Upon leaving the nursery, each plant promises to be without disease or insects and totes along a one-year guarantee, which issues replacements for any flora that fails despite proper care.
Instead of suppressing our dirt-dwelling flowery underlings, Grassi's has empowered them for more than 30 years through beautiful floral arrangements customizable to customers' wishes. Grassi's green thumbs offer floral arrangements in traditional, European, French country garden, and Oriental styles. Although this Groupon is good for in-store purchases only, you can take a look online at what Grassi's offers, including its seasonal bouquet of orange spray roses and a bright gerbera daisy with freesia and eucalyptus ($44). For a super-late (or super-early) Valentine's Day gift, opt for two dozen roses ($144.95). If you love oranges but hate that they're never available in flower form, choose the Citrus Sensation bouquet ($79.95) to quench your thirst for sweet-scented aromas. A bevy of other buds and blossoms are available at both Grassi's locations, so stop in for an eyeful of the efflorescence on display.
With a total of 14 locations, sewing and quilting classes, and a cornucopia of handpicked sewing products, Quality Sewing & Vacuum offers needle wielders all the necessities for their projects.

Shoppers can peruse the cache of sewing machines from brands such as Singer, Pfaff, and Brother alongside accessories, embroidery designs, and vacuums that clean up rooms after testing out how easy it is to find a needle in a haystack.
Working across 16 locations around Puget Sound, the friendly folks at Savvy Mattress Outlet showcase popular, name-brand mattresses from Simmons, Serta, and Sealy, aiming to help sleepers of all stripes find their ideal match. They also offer next- and same-day delivery service, during which hired staffers will remove your old mattress, take it for one last spin down the stairs, and break the hard news to the kids—who were originally told that it was going to a country farm filled with other mattresses.
Although most chefs have their own unique style of peeling, dicing, and julienning veggies, they all have one thing in common: they each require precise, sharp knives. At Excalibur Cutlery and Gifts, the staff ensures that tools remain as close to their factory condition as possible. During sharpening services, a water-cooled belt system and buffing wheels restore a piercing blade while removing a minimal amount of steel. They can sharpen kitchen, pocket, and hunting knives, as well as dull scissors and razors.
The shop also stocks premium models of nearly every edge they sharpen. The cutlery department stocks German-made Wusthof and Henckels, Swiss-made Forschner, and Oregon-grown Kershaw knives. Ideal for camping trips, pocket knives come in both blade and multitool varieties. More genteel wares include manicure sets and old-fashioned shaving kits. Excalibur also boasts a collection of swords for the collector or CEO whose business suit needs extra panache.
