My name is ****** *****. (I have to be careful!) I live in New York City, the true hub of the furniture industry. Since 1950 I have sold, advertised ,made, ordered, fixed and delivered furniture and bedding.
There isn’t much I don’t know about the tricks of the trade. I want to share this with you while I still have time.
My goal is to provide an inside look into the business. If you are shopping for furniture, especially beds, mattresses or bedding, you will do well to pay attention. I can save you a lot of money and disappointment with my hard earned wisdom
I have nothing new to sell and not useful except in vague terms if you ask for valuation of vintage or antique beds. I am a fully retired guy in my eighties filling up my days walking my dog in Central Park, and trying to empty my mail box. I comparison shop at the local sleep shops, furniture and department stores when I am bored.
Please feel free to email me questions and I will answer them promptly. If you are asking for specific named-names mattress buying advice, please take the time to describe yourself as to age group, weight group, height, physical activities, chronic aches, and anything a qualified mattress salesperson should ask you to help narrow down the choices. If you have a problem with an owned bed or mattress, again, write too much in the first letter. I will reply and I probably will be very helpful.
The internet is populated with loads of phony mattress review sites. 99.9% have an agenda to send you to a specific website that financially rewards them. You have to wade through pages of verbiage until they finally send you to site A or B with a convenient link. Some of them are extremely clever. Caveat Emptor. If you want to read real and trustworthy mattress reviews only one place can help you. Consumer Reports actually has a beautiful lab with testing instruments and tens of thousands of subscribers who report on their mattress experiences. And Consumer Reports, like myself, has nothing for sale. They do not sell advertising and I do not sell anything.
