Before Budget Right Handyman does anything to a home, they first prove they need to be there. On the company's blog, Handyman Tim examines the most common repairs and installations individually and answers the question, "Do I need a handyman for this?" His answer helps customers understand what's truly involved in replacing a ceiling fan or retiling a shower or repainting a snake-pit. Budget Right's crew of craftsmen have the necessary experience for the most daunting indoor and outdoor services, such as installing windows and shelving systems, remodeling kitchens, and repairing a home's siding. But even if it's a job you can do yourself, Budget Right can free up hours of weekend by bundling an entire to-do list into a single session.

They have hundreds of ceramics available, from mugs and platters to decorative vases and trinket boxes.

Whether attending with friends, as part of an adult or kids' party, or on your own, the staff will fire your piece for you and have it ready for pickup within one week. Beyond readying pieces, the staff can also create custom ceramics, painting gifts for weddings, baby showers, or interventions for paper plate adicts per the customers' design requests.
The creative team of framers and decorators at Foursided stocks stacks of creative greeting cards and paraphernalia. The self-described "frame nerds" do more than cultivate a collection of stationery by planting paper seeds in nearby printing presses; they also place prints and objects into frames and furnish homes with original pieces by a handful of favored artists. Staffers also buy and sell vintage flash cards, puzzle pieces, and letter tiles harvested from a variety of objects.
Owner Todd Mack has worked in framing for 20 years, and he draws on his vast experience when custom mounting a broad spectrum of pieces. Vintage and recycled frames, archival framing, and shadow boxes are a few of the options available. Mack's interest in shadow boxes makes perfect sense to visitors who take a look at his own art, which assembles found photos and objects in forms that aren't always 2-D.

Candles, jewelry, and books round out the gift selections.
