Does anyone know if there is anyone on STX that does wicker furniture repair?

I'm not sure but I think Lyle Munson or Munson furniture in Gallows Bay (on the main road out of town, near Subway) does some wicker repair. If not, he'd surely know who does. ( If he's even still open, its been years since I've been in there... he and his sister run it). Otherwise, I'd ask at Stiches in Gallows Bay also (same store as Traveler's Tree). You don't say what is wrong with it. My wicker has chewed up legs and arms from nervous dogs... not repairable!

Thanks, good thought, I actually had him cover some furniture for me years ago. The repair is structural
the back is loose. I'm getting the info from my renter and I'm in the states so I don't have specific knowledge.

I have a LOT of wood (cherry, walnut, and a set painted white) that was damaged in the recent move here. An insurance adjuster came out today to document the damage but so far I haven't been able to find a furniture repair place to give estimate for repair on STX.

Does anybody know of or can recommend:

1) a service that can refinish wood furniture (including fixing scratches, gouges, and paint overlay from movers hitting the walls with furniture)?

2) a service that can repair a goose-down stuffed microfiber sectional? It wasn't shrink wrapped at pick up but somewhere between storage and consolidator someone did but allowed moisture to get in an stained the upholstery (we can't get it out with anything we've tried.)

I checked but didn't find anything. If there isn't a service I suspect I'll have a battle on my hands as we have full replacement value insurance and I'm sure the insurer will do anything they can to not have to pay for it all.

Any recommendation is greatly appreciated.
