There are several upholstery shops in yellow pages and you could also try the marine canvas/sailmakers shops to see if they have what you are looking for.

I know your on STT but,

Talk to Hilda at Gallows Bay Upholstery on STX. She got foam for us on Puerto Rice a couple of years ago.
Also, Divi Fabrics in downtown Christiansted has huge pieces of foam for cushions, etc. Good luck!

I was told Harry's on STT had it. I find almost everything I need, with the exception of shoes, on island at reasonable prices. When people saw my Christmas stuff this year, somebody made the comment that I was a good commercial for that catalog. They were shocked when I told them that everything but the glass came from KMart, but the glass was bought locally, too.

Buying online is my last resort, because I like to see and feel what I'm buying. After buying scarves for gifts from some popular online company and was so disappointed with them that I had to send them back and pay the return postage, I look on island first and online last. Many times items here are cheaper. Sometimes much cheaper, and I know what I'm getting.

Books and DVDs are an exception, though.

It is difficult to buy books here since Dockside closed. (insert crying emoticon here)

Buying books here is next to impossible, and browsing books on the internet is not the same as browsing in person. If we had a decent library, the closing wouldn't be so critical, but no bookstore and no library really deprives the community of educational options.

Hmmm, thanks to your post, I think I'll look for an online book recommendation site.

The STT Library up the hill behind Plaza Extra is open and while not fully and completely stocked has a very good collection of books.
If you live nearby, it's a no-brainer and there is no charge for a library card.
.
The only thing is, they are all hard cover (heavy) and you have to return every 5-7 days.
I read one that quickly but driving back and forth from my location just to get some books to read and return isn't suitable to my schedule unless planned out, just right so I bought a Kindle.

I agree that internet book browsing is not the same and makes the whole book buying experience extremely tedious. I much prefer a good "real life" bookstore.

Well, it's good to hear it's open. I kept hearing it wasn't, so maybe I'll go by there Tue.

you should be able to call the library and ask for an extension, i was able to do that here on stx. that would give you 2 weeks instead of one.
when the library was open on saturday i would go and check out the max number and extend by a week. so 2-5 books every 2 weeks was what i was reading. i do wish they were still open on saturday
