She then is able to design the room in the client’s own lighting and existing furnishings. “Working this way tends to be very comfortable for the client as they can really see what works in the room, plus it’s a huge time-saving convenience.” Susan specializes in “Lifestyle Design,” which is all about the client’s personal style, taste, functional needs, and budget. “My clients really enjoy working with a knowledgeable decorator who is the owner of the company, rather than trying to select pieces by themselves with only the aid of a salesperson who may not be around when your order is supposed to be placed. “We don’t charge design fees or hourly Susan Tenny, C.I.D. rates nor do we have ‘minimums.’ I pride myself on my ability to work within my clients’ budget, custom designing the room for function, comfort, beauty, cohesiveness, and flow. By taking careful measurements and making floor plans, we avoid expensive mistakes. We handle all the details, ordering, and scheduling, and are personally on-site to supervise installation and delivery. We follow up with our clients afterwards, as their complete satisfaction is of the utmost importance. “My clients are working directly with a small business owner who has the power of a large established company behind her,” she adds. “Unlike a store, we have no inventory or loyalty to a particular manufacturer. We listen to our clients and put their needs first as we make our choices from hundreds of vendors.” Susan is ready to help clients with projects of any size, whether it’s just one window treatment, a room that needs one or two updates, or a large-scale makeover.

S ibling’s, Bergen County’s hometown shoe store since 1954, is beginning its second year at Ramapo Centre, 1003 MacArthur Boulevard in Mahwah. Owner Barbara Heschle is pleased with the move. “Our customers love the new store! It’s so bright and inviting. They love the ease of parking, too. The best thing we ever did was to move into this location. We love the way everything is laid out.” In the 1950s, Gibling’s opened in Ramsey’s Main Street shopping district. The store quickly found its niche, taking the time to help customers find shoes with a perfect fit. When the business moved Donna Spence, Barbara Heschle and Jackie Kimmel in 1958, the owner selected a Not pictured: Gail Cupo store in the Ramsey Interstate Shopping Center. In 1976, the original owner sold the business to Barbara, a dedicated employee. Today, Barbara, Store Manager Donna Spence, and staff continue the Gibling’s tradition of personalized customer service for every member of the family from babies getting their first pair of shoes right on up to senior citizens. Gibling’s customers receive one-on-one attention. Everyone is properly measured and fit. “We don’t sell shoes unless they’re needed,” Barbara emphasizes. “We’re very conscious about the fit. We’ll keep a size card on every child who comes in and send reminder notices.” Gibling’s offers a wide variety of famous footwear including Saucony, Nike, New Balance, SAS, Geox, Stride Rite, Pediped, Etnies, Merrell, Keen, and many more. Capezio dance footwear and garments are also available. Visit Gibling’s and experience the customer service you deserve. Hours are Monday through Thursday 9:30-6, Friday 9:30-7 and Saturday 9:30-5.
