This Week’s Craft Talk
DESQ Office Solutions manufactures products in several categories; office furniture for your commercial space, office furniture for your home (ideal for that bedroom that has been abandoned by your grown children), wall beds to make that bedroom multipurpose, closet configurations to get the most and best use of those closets in your home, and storage for your garage needs. On Wednesday we took a picture trip through these and more products available through DESQ as well as an exposure to life in Argentina, and western Wisconsin.
Dick Nelson also wanted to make sure to remind everyone of the value of CPR, and that it does save lives, including his own.
