We made a purchase of bedroom furniture from this store. After waiting for two months to get it, when it showed up, it was not the quality we expected. We ended up not accepting it. This is not Amish, handcrafted old world furniture that you would expect, and not the "exceptional" furniture that the store mentions over and over in it's advertising. It certainly was not the quality of finished furniture displayed in the store.The solid maple tops on the nightstands had wood grain that was poorly matched. Having worked in a cabinet shop with craftsman when I was much younger, I can speak with some authority on the subject. When a cabinet maker fabricates a piece of wood to be used as a desktop, tabletop, or nightstand top, they take pieces of wood and lay them out flat and glue them together edge to edge to make the flat top. Care must be taken in this procese to match the grains and wood so that when the piece is stained and finished, the grains and the wood matches. The nightstand tops (both of them!) had very dark pieces of wood next to very light pieces of wood, leaving light and dark streaks across the tops of the nightstand. It looked very bad. I was shocked when I saw what the tops looked like upon delivery. Really disgusted after waiting so long for them, and seeing the poor quality. As soon as I saw them, it was obvious no care was taken when selecting this material. When you're mass producing furniture, you can't reject everything because it doesn't match. In one way, I feel sorry for this small business owner to have to take these pieces of furniture back with the nightstand tops looking like this if the manufacturer will not accept them back because no one will look at these nightstand tops and think they're very good or want to purchase them unless they're heavily discounted. It was very obvious the manufacturer took no care in selecting this material and making sure that the grains and wood texture matches. That care was so very obviously taken in every piece of furniture on display in the store. I find this store owner at fault for expecting me to take this furniture when delivered. They should have returned it back to the manufacturer when they got it at the store and told me I would have to wait a little longer. Rather that, as bad as that would be, then to expect me to accept it.In one place on the furniture we found a nail from a nail gun that had been shot carelessly, missing the wood it was supposed to hit and penetrating the other side of the piece of wood. It wasn't in a visible place but I was surprised to see nail guns used at all. This is not furniture handcrafted piece by piece, and in hindsight ,I was naive to expect it to be. How could the Amish keep up with manufacturing pieces for stores all over the United States where every big town has an Amish furniture store if they were not using the same mass production techniques all mass production furniture makers use. I don't fault them for that. I should have known better.When I spoke to the owner, they told me the particular company that makes this furniture is one of their better suppliers. That company has quality control problems if this is the best they can do. One thing I will say for the Amish Craftsman furniture store. When I complained to them after the furniture had been left at my home, they came back, picked it up and refunded my money. That is old world customer service.
Catherine’s latest venture, Café Brussels is a great new addition to the Heights. Try the Tartare de Saumon dressed with a zesty Belgian country vinaigrette accompanied by a Belgian draft beer or glass (bottle!) of wine. You can’t go wrong requesting Catherine’s favorite mussel dish for a main course, Belgian classic, Moules Marinières, accompanied by a large serving of golden Belgian Fries. The large and succulent mussels are steamed to perfection and portion sizes are very generous! My dining companion enjoyed le Petit Pavé de Bruxelles, a perfectly cooked steak and le Cordon Bleu. Be sure to leave room for one of Café Brussels fabulous desserts! Catherine's crepes are among my favorites.Catherine Duwaz is both a good friend and a genuinely nice person. It brings me great pleasure to see a friend continue to succeed in a town that can be unforgiving to restaurateurs. Cafe Brussels is our new "go-to" place in Houston for great Belgian food. And to top it all off, the prices are very reasonable for the quality and the portions sizes are generous.
We decided on the Villagio & couldn't be happier! The venue is clean, spacious, and simply elegant. We had our ceremony and reception here. Trish, owner & overall planner, is prompt, thorough, charismatic and easy to work with. The venue is tucked away at the end of a street, with private parking & far from the street. There are inside/outside room options, but the trademark is a beautiful spiral staircase for a grand bridal entrance! The package we chose was the Ultimate II. This package comes with everything except the DJ and videographer so we didn’t have to worry about hiring various vendors for each part of our wedding. Trish already has a strong vendor selection. Our package came with food, cake, linens, floral arrangements, photo booth, lighting, photography, 2 HPD officers, and a wedding coordinator. We paid extra for drapery and it was beautiful. The caterers allowed us to test the food in a prior meeting so we can give them very specific details. Mr. & Mrs. King 08/12/2016
A Affordable Office Furniture
So not what I expected (in a GOOD way). I went in "certain" of what I wanted and what my budget was. Donny met me in the parking lot, asked a few questions, and showed me exactly what I was looking for in a desk chair. He remained available without hovering (which I appreciate), answered all my questions and demonstrated different features. As we got to talking, it became clear to him I was looking for the wrong chair for my needs, and showed me some other options. Being able to sit in the chair and try it out is something you can't do in an online purchase, and boy am I so glad.I ended up purchasing a chair almost double what I went in there planning to spend but still a tremendous value at 30% of the retail price. They loaded it for me and took care to protect and tie it down in my open bed pickup. They have a customer for life now for all my home and business office furniture needs.
This restaurant reopened since the end of Jan.2013 because of the ownership changes. Every dishes totally different with previous. Simple menu but fresh and delicious.

We visited the Vertskebap in Spring, Texas on July 1, 2015 at the recommendation of a co-worker. A gentleman by the name of Cederick took our order and also offered great suggestions regarding the sauces, etc to put on our meal to enhance the experience. Everyone including Cederick was super friendly and all three of us, my wife, myself and our son, all voted 5 out of 5 stars and a definite new restaurant on our palate of dining choices. The food is fresh, wholesome, and is healthy. Lots of fresh vegetables, the meat choices come in beef, lamb and chicken and the sauces are made homemade they said every day, right in the store. A definite recommend, you have to try it - you will be hooked.
