Interesting site I found

I found this site that I thought was interesting because they tell you "HOW" and "What" to look for when buying furniture. I used their tips and saved myself several hundred dollars on a new leather living room suite - and got a better product!

The web site address is:

Home Page

Guide for Buying Bedroom Furniture

Guide to Buying the Perfect Chair or Recliner

Sofas and Sleepers

Buyers Guide to Wood Furniture

Carpet and Rug Care Tips

Furniture Buyers Guide

Furniture Glossary of Terms

Quality Furniture Design

Furniture Design Trends

Ashton Furniture Gallery

Guide for Buying Bedroom Furniture

Home Furnishings Resources

Terms of Use

Privacy Policy

Additional Furniture Shopping Resources

I think you'll enjoy and profit by what you learn here.

New changes

Went through my site and have made several minor changes, mostly navigational. Added 50 more lightship history pages and will put the new index up next time as I am still editing some of the changes and spelling.

Lighthouse history pages are progressing and they will be going "live" by the end of the first week of Janaury. I have over 500 of these pages in the editing stages right now so it will take a little longer to finish.
