It looks like you have a lot of great merchandise on your web site. Really enjoyed meeting your marketing rep, Emma, when she visited Alki Surf Shop today.

They might be good at printing and delivery, but their phone tree is pretty frustrating. Good luck reaching a human being.

Interesting because earlier this evening I noticed quite a few very nice-quality architectural photos on my Googleplus timeline. I didn't realize who was sharing them. Really wonderful architectural photography, as well as awesome architectural spaces and edifices.

I've been taking my car to the great guys at Car Tender since about 1997. My mechanic of 19 years passed away, and I didn't know where to turn until one day I saw a beautiful 2002 parked in a lot. I wrote the owner a note, asking where she took her car for service, and left it on her windshield. It was the beginning of two wonderful relationships :) one with the owner of the BMW, and the other with Car Tender. I'm doubtful there is any place else in Seattle as knowledgable and competent as Car Tender, especially for rarer cars like my 2002. It amazes me to see the scope of their skills, spanning old cars like mine to jazzy new digital wonders. If this review sounds biased, it's because it is. I cannot say enough about them. There is huge peace of mind knowing they are there for me, and deliver top-notch professional services for reasonable prices. I'm very grateful and recommend them highly. It's really great to have an opportunity to leave a positive review for Car Tender. PS. If you ever have to wait for your car, they have a well-stocked candy dish :)
