I want curtains for Christmas
You know you want new drapes in the living room before Christmas. And you know you’ve been totally uninspired by the facial-tissue-thin, ready-made products in anaemic colours and deathly dull designs you’ve seen out there so far. Okay, okay, I’m projecting — it’s ME who wants new drapes. Fortunately, I’m self actualized enough to admit it. Also fortunately, and fortuitously, I just heard that InVu Drapery Company has a special on that could get me – and you — suitable draped before the Jolly Guy comes looking for cookies.
I'm pretty excited — I visited InVu’s North Toronto store in the spring and saw both ready-made draperies and fabrics for custom curtains that could make a grown woman weep. So pretty, and such lovely trims and hardware.
Here’s the deal. Go in and buy ready-made panels and have them embellished with trim and extra fabric for a custom look, and get 20 per cent off the cost of the panels and the labour and materials. (Don’t you love the way the panels shown above and the blind below have been customized?) Order custom-made drapes and you get 20 per cent off the fabric and the labour. The same applies for headboards and upholstery. And no, it doesn’t apply to drapery hardware (don’t be greedy!).
Order by November 15, and the company guarantees delivery and installation by December 24.Order by November 25, and they guarantee delivery by December 24. So move quickly – you know you don’t to be hanging drapes on Christmas Eve – (or am I projecting again?)
