Liz Recommends

Home

Action Jackson Plumbing
Plumber
Used them for a sewer scope - very professional and seemed to know their stuff. Family-owned business.
Blue Flame Heating & Air Conditioning
HVAC
They did a solid job installing central air in my home. The post-install inspection process was a bit of a mess (unclear what was happening when and if someone needed to be home) but otherwise good work.
City People's Garden Store
Nursery
Great selection of indoor & outdoor plants, friendly & helpful staff, and a sweet gift shop to boot.
Crystal Panes Window And Gutter Cleaning
Window Washing
Nice work on both interior and exterior windows. Professional and respectful staff.
D.A. Burns & Sons
Carpet Cleaner
No fuss, great work.
Gallery Frames
Framing
This shop was recommended to me by the Davidson Gallery. They framed two large prints for me and did a great job.
Ironwood Tree
Landscape Architect
David Berleth did a beautiful job! He took on a massive project of removing structures, old bricks, and lots over overgrowth. He installed a beautiful fountain, new pavers, a new fence, and even oversaw moving the position of the front stairs.
Madsen Modern
Furniture
Madsen Modern did a beautiful job repairing a vintage teak dining chair for me. You can't even see the break in the wood any longer. Lifesavers!
Peter Lavagnino Garden Design and Management
Landscape Design
I found Peter through recommendations from @kimr and @SeattleAmy. He created and executed a plan for my front yard's landscaping, including redefining the hardscape/grass boundaries, picking a beautiful selection of plants and trees, and procuring/placing/planting them. He accommodated my budget by breaking the overall project into phases, so the work will continue into next year, but it looks great already!
R&S Landscaping
Landscaper
Rathbone Interior Painting
Painter
Sandi is the Paint Fairy. You don't have to move furniture or belongings before she comes. She paints about one room a day, and when she leaves you literally cannot tell that anyone has been in the house. Over three days and three rooms + a hallway, I never saw a drop cloth, piece of tape, or any mess whatsoever. The painting was beautifully done to boot. Highly recommend! (Thanks @lauraliz )
Ridwell
Recycling Services
We just signed up for Ridwell and are so excited about it. The kids are even getting involved! I love not feeling guilty about disposing of plastic film, batteries, and more the wrong way. Phew.
Seattle Design Solutions
Window Treatments
We used them for a house full of blinds and curtains. They go for quality but will work with you on budget. They also do a great job with custom shelving for closets.
The Fixit Sisters
Handyman
I just started working with Kelly based on the recommendation from @SaraEizen. She's been helping me get my new house in working order and it seems like she can do it all. She's super friendly and flexible and has already saved me lots of headaches. Highly recommended!
Wirecraft Electrician Services
Electrician
Great experience with these guys on a small job. With Wirecraft you always pay a $79 transportation fee, but for that they will come on site, provide an estimate, and do the work right away if possible. I recently used them for hanging a chandelier. The electrician got stuck in traffic and was a bit late, but he called to let me know and did a small freebie project to thank me for understanding. I will definitely use them again!

Armoire
Boutique
Great option for try-before-you-buy clothes, or just to mix up your wardrobe without having to actually go shopping (ugh).
Davidson Galleries
Art Gallery
I was looking to purchase some art for my new house and found this gallery through online resources. If you want original work but can't spend a fortune, Davidson is a good option. They have work on paper from tons of classic, contemporary, and modern artists. If you see something you like in the back, Rebecca can pull the artist's full portfolio and take you on a tour of their pieces. There's a little reconnaissance involved, but that's part of the fun. They also have an extensive collection online.
Gage Academy
Art School
My daughter has gone to summer camps here for many years and loves the environment.
Green Dry Cleaners
Dry Cleaner
Reliable, fast, and they do alterations.
Humble Design
Donation Center
Love this organization. They furnish homes for people who are coming out of homelessness. You can donate your gently used furniture or household items (or of course make a cash donation). They will come pick your stuff up for a $50 fee if you can't deliver it yourself. Check out their FB page for some awesome reveal videos! https://www.facebook.com/humbledesignseattle/
Knack Shops
Boutique
I used Knack Shops to order some gifts for far-away friends and family. It's an awesome gifting experience, with both flexibility to create your own gifts and lots of pre-made options to choose from. Easy checkout experience, too, which is so important. Great resource to have for the holidays and all year!
Seatown Sweets
Bakery
Kayla at Seatown Sweets created a beautiful succulent/cactus themed cake for my daughter's birthday party. The decorations were flawless and the cake itself was light and delicious. Worth the drive to Kirkland from Seattle! Thanks @Cassiejohnson73 for the recommendation.
The Postman Mail & Business
Postal Services
If you live in Cap Hill, Madrona, Madison Park or the CD, you should mail your packages at The Postman on MLK. Great, friendly service, motivated local young entrepreneur, and convenient location.
