Futile Anger

I hate getting ripped off. But I particularly hate it when I can’t vent my anger to someone who will do anything about it.

We got a recall notice for the passenger air bag for our 2008 Honda Civic. Since our daughter is the primary driver of this car, she took it into Roberston Honda in North Hollywood.

Antique Shopping

Well, we love antiques…. Maybe that’s considered “dated or “folksy” now. But there it is. My family has been lucky enough over the years to purchase or inherit some rather nice pieces. These have been handed down to us, allowing us to have and enjoy high quality furniture that has a history.

We’ve been rummaging thru ....

Blinded by the Deal

It’s so easy to find such a great deal that you jump on it without question.  I call it being “Deal Blind”.  Deals like a $400 designer coat for $10. Or a new, perfect dining table for $50 instead of $500.

Having it All for Less

Many Southern Californian’s are associated in some way with the entertainment industry. Actors, Crew & Craft Services, Writers, Directors, Production Assistants and more live on just about every street. Most hustle for every gig and need to look great, and keep up appearances even when they’re in between jobs.  Stretching your dollar is paramount to stay ahead of the game.

Annoying Calls

Our business, BargainsLA works out of our home office. We have only one land line for both the house and the business. Though we used to get lots of phone calls and at one time had two separate phone lines, we are down to one and are now considering cutting that line as well.

Back to School Blues

Filed Under: Zannee's Tips

Surprise! Surprise! Surprise! The local school bells awakened me this morning at 7:00 am. I really shouldn’t complain. I have been lucky enough to have started sleeping later since my daughter graduated High School. My 19 years of 6am waking up are finally over.

An Argument for Vintage Furniture

I love antique furniture whether it’s Mid Century or Victorian. The quality, design and craftsmanship are often superior to anything made today.

However, beautifully crafted, older vintage or antique furniture isn’t for everyone… but it should be.

Where Does It All Go?

There is always a vast amount of overproduction in the rag trade. Manufacturers make more than they can sell for a variety of practical, economic and marketing reasons.  Why does this happen and where does it all go?
