For more than 90 years, the experts at Henderson Glass have kept glass in cars, homes, and business in working order with their high standards for maintenance and repair. Cars shine like new after a windshield repair and replacement with a 20-month, 20,000-mile warranty available for purchase. The experienced technicians also handle glasswork for the house, ranging from replacement windows and storm doors to shower doors, custom mirrors, glass tiles, and invisible walls. Their services also expand into the commercial realm with procedures such as emergency board-up and installation of doors, glass partitions, and handrails.
It’s easier to bond with a new home when its sofas are topped with comfy throw pillows or its walls are decorated with poignant artwork. The design consultants at Jugo Designs understand this important emotional connection potential buyers must feel with their future abodes, leveraging it to stage homes and help them to sell quickly.
Some home stagings are as simple as half-day reshufflings of the sellers’ existing furnishings, adding a few accessories and subtracting a few squatting grandparents here and there. Others require two days’ worth of decor overhaul. Once new owners scoop up homes, the like-new staging furniture—including custom-designed couches and upholstery—goes back to Jugo’s showroom, where customers can snag it for up to 60% off retail prices.

Purchase a slew of vintage handkerchiefs ($5–$12) to toss out of the Amtrak window to a bevy of besotted beaus, and reward the one who catches the most with a summery straw fedora ($24).
