Ticketing for Parking at a Broken Meter - MUST VENT!

Don't know if this is the proper place to vent about an Oak Park parking issue, but here I go...Parked at a meter on OP Ave. Meter key function was broken, and the coin slot was jammed. Needing to get to work with no other spots available, I put a white plastic bag with "Meter Broken" and the date written on it over the meter head. Problem solved, right?Nope. I got a ticket for an unpaid meter. Really? Of course I appealed and even took a picture of the bagged meter which I added to my…See More

Thank you for your interest.
I just started the Home Staging business after completing the training a few months ago. I have been doing exterior curb appeal design and a lot of interior architectural design for many years. My main business is the Oak Park Home & Hardware business.

Unfortunately, it has been very slow going in Home Staging because of the current real estate market. If I were busy, then sure!...I would be in need of help. Lets hope for much better days in the future. Thanks!

Hi Heidi, thanks for joining. I was actually going to include the recent story about your and your career path in my end-of-day blog recap tomorrow. Stay tuned! Also, if you'd like to upload some photos of some of your work, feel free. The Careful Peach uploaded some pics of their merchandise a few days ago and I think it was a nice addition to the site. I look forward to chatting with you!
