Hello! Frager's is looking for recommendations for (1) a local awning company, and (2) a sign company who can do gold leaf lettering and window designs. Any suggestions are appreciated!
Thank you CHAMPS for another great Sip and Shop. It was nice to see so many neighbors out and about last night and even better to meet the fellow small business owners. Like Charles Allen said, our locally owned small buinesses are one of the many things that make Capitol Hill great!
