I was thinking back on our cabin we used to own on the North Shore in Belfair, WA. We had two dogs who loved their Milk Bones. When I would vacuum there would be a loud clatter of the machine picking up all the little dog bone pieces I could not see.
And that is the story of the Olefin berbers that was sold for so many years. Long-lasting, tough and hard to stain, hiding nerdlies in the carpet.
Finding Olefin berber today is impossible. Wondering why, I called the largest distributor on the East Coast. I found out that with all the other carpet options out there today that they have decided not to manufacture the dyes necessary to dye the fibers. So there you have it.
Still looking for an alternative, I did find a small company in Dalton GA, family owned, that makes their own carpeting. They have three nice PET or Polyester looped carpets.
The samples came in today. So if you are still looking for a Berber style looped carpet then one of these three should fit the bill. This fiber is much softer than the Olefin.
We are excited to be bringing in a brand new hardwood collection. Here is a picture of one of their beautiful woods.
We will have our new display soon. You can look at the entire line at
There is nothing quite like Alterna. It is an engineered stone flooring. The core is made from limestone and the surface is made with a non-porous resilient surface. It is easy to clean and care for. It is ideal for high-moisture areas.
How often when visiting our southern states do we love the ceramic tile we see installed. But here in the Pacific NW we often have to use area rugs to warm the floor. Not so with these tiles. They are warmer to the touch.
There are 12 grout colors to select from. OR…..forget the grout to make cleaning even easier. The look will be a tight rectified tile look.
On sale now through April.
Yes, this time comes every year. The countdown to Thanksgiving, Christmas and then New Year’s Eve.
This is a busy time for companies like ours. We are already booked up for hard-flooring jobs through November. We usually always have time to slip in a carpet job but it usually is pretty disruptive at this time of year. Especially if there is a Christmas tree. (That is why we are so busy in January. Many say, ” We will do it after the holidays.”
There is still plenty of time for new window coverings. Hunter Douglas is having a rebate sale on Duette Honeycomb shades, Skyline Gliding Panels, Pirouette, Silhouette and Vignette. Minimums do apply.
If you need blinds that insulate from the cold, consider honeycomb. If you have a view Silhouette gently shades your window while allowing you to see through the fabric. Vignette offers a Roman Shade look with warm and stylish fabrics. How does one describe a Pirouette? A most unusual shade that squeezes open and closed.
There is something for every room in all price ranges. If the product you want is not on sale then we offer free install on that blind.
Here are some pictures of what is on sale, or go to our website.
What a great year it was. We moved into our new space and it has been well-received. The new showroom really features the great products we carry.
We anticipate a new laminate addition arriving in January. We have already sold many of the first patterns in this great line. The core is infused with melamine and offers a 50 year warranty…Yes you read that correctly….3.99 sf.

We have made a move into the space next to us. We are now in the old Kitsap Bank building. The old parquet flooring has been scraped away, the tellers counters are gone, the big vault is history.
Come in and visit us. We hope you will like our new look.
