Vintage Cars
Why leave your wedding in a Toyota when you could be in a 1939 Buick Sedan? Or, make a splash when you arrive for opening night, stepping out of a peacock blue 1954 Kaiser Early Special. And there's nothing like a jaunt around town in a 1960 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud or a 1969 Checker cab. Talk to Peter Yannello of Filmcars, 718.748.6707.

Upholsterers
The upholsterers we recommend will work with you even without an interior designer in tow. They can all do more than upholster a chair or sofa; they can make pillows, curtains, shower curtains, drapes, bedspreads, duvet covers, comforters, headboards, window treatments, valances, swags, balloon and Roman shades, slipcovers and tablecloths. Recommended upholsterers.

Jewelry Repair
Joe Rissin repairs all kinds of jewelry, both fine and costume, as well as eyeglasses. He fabricates intricate clasps for better pieces. "A good clasp is one you can hear click from 10 feet away." Mr. Rissin works in stones and metals, but not with titanium or aluminum. Rissin's Jewelry Clinic, 4 W. 47th [5th/6th] 212.575.1098.

Audio Repair
"We have seen the future…and we can fix it" is the motto of Soundsmith, 914.739.2885, the single best place for audio repair we have found anywhere. That's why so many people send off their turntables, amps, speakers, receivers, DVD players, and VCRs to this Peekskill company — and have for over 30 years.

Hat Cleaning
Horace Weeks is the hat master at Peter & Irving, 36 W. 38th [5th/6th] 212.730.4369. The business has been around for over 70 years and Mr. Weeks has been there since the late 60s. Though he's semi-retired, somehow, he's still in the shop, making sure the company cleans, blocks, and restores straws and felts for women and men as well as they always have.

Lamp Repair
Lamp repair shops can rewire and replace parts and they can also 'mount', a trade term for turning an object into a lamp.

Rental Car Deals
You can drive yourself crazy getting different rates for the same type of car from different companies. You can also get different rates for the same type of car from the same company at different locations. We offer some
guidance.
In case you missed it yesterday, the Times' obit of The New Yorker sentinel Eleanor Gould Packard is well worth a read.
