One of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of paints in the Pacific Northwest, Parker Paint has been sprucing up interiors and exteriors since 1945. The company has evolved over the years to keep up with the latest advancements in painting technology. Among the multi-hued fruits of this evolution are weather-ready exterior paints, whose modern formulas scoff at the elements and prove ideal for realistic yet unflattering outdoor murals of the neighbors. With more than 1,600 shades to choose from, painters will find it nearly impossible to settle, like a bowl of jello during an earthquake. Luckily, customers can take advantage of the handy virtual decorator to narrow their choices and forecast what color schemes should be applied to which room, such as aquamarine themes for the exotic-fish room, bright primary colors for the inflatable fire escape, and a variety of yellows for a basement filled with antique butter churns.

Today's deal can also be used toward custom orders.
Occasionally, an Italian exporter will ask the owner of Poggi Bonsi why she named her business after Poggibonsi, a small town in Tuscany. The answer is simple: it's fun to say. It may be even more fun to peruse the shop's shelves, which hold handpicked items from artisans across the pond. The woman who owns the shop seeks out suppliers who practice crafts the same way her ancestors did. This explains Poggi Bonsi's extensive stock of Italian ceramics and French linens. They supplement this timeless selection with modern appliances, kitchen gadgets, and bakeware.
When it comes to garage doors, there hasn't really been a whole lot of innovation in the past 40 years. The best garage door is the one that opens, closes, and doesn't give you any guff in between. Sound Door Service?a Seattle-based, locally owned and operated company?understands this, and that's why a good number of their doors come with life-time warranties. But that's just the beginning. They stock a massive selection of doors that range from classic steel doors that get the job done to Heritage Classic carriage style doors, hand-crafted by retired race horses.
Of course, sometimes things go wrong, so Sound Door Service keeps a team of techs on hand. They can fix up damaged sections, install an entirely new unit, or swap out rusty springs for new ones. Techs can also correct door torsion and repair extension springs, and lend assistance and expertise to owners shopping for a new door.
The founder of Moe's Home Collection, Moe Samieian, began his enterprise with a Vancouver rug store in 1985, eventually getting into the furniture business and steadily increasing his number of storefronts.
