BUSINESS OFFERS DECORATING SERVICES

By Marjorie Woodfin

Pilot staff writer

Just in time for holiday dcor, Duane Pixler has opened his decorating service in Brookings.

Pixler, who has 30 years experience in floral display, decorating, and visual merchandising, is operating from his home to be able to offer his professional services at a reasonable rate.

His specialty is helping real estate personnel prepare a home for quicker sale. However, he enjoys helping individual clients and businesses add beautiful touches for holidays or other special occasions.

Those who visited U.S. Bank this past month had an opportunity to view some of Pixler's decorating talent. He provided the decorations for Elmo Williams' book signing celebration at the bank Oct. 25.

Pixler is skilled at finding just the right decorations for home, businesses, organizations, and special parties. No job is too large or too small. He said he is especially interested in helping those who find it difficult to personally manage the decorating chores.

He explained that his past experience in taking care of his grandmother and brightening her atmosphere has given him insight into how to help make a home beautiful and special for the holidays.

Pixler will provide a consultation without charge or obligation. Pixler said he can gauge the time it will require to provide the desired dcor and the materials needed.

"There's much a good designer can do to provide something special for nothing," Pixler said.

Pixler said that he and his mother, Sherry Drobny, who works at U.S. Bank, moved to Brookings for her health and they love the community. He looks forward to making many new friends as he works to help clients find beauty in their surroundings.

For a consultation, call (541) 787-9200.

  • Weak demand weighs on China factory, services firms in March, more easing seen
    Surveys of China's manufacturing and services sectors showed persistent weakness in the world's second-biggest economy in March, adding to bets that Beijing will have to roll out more policy support to avert a sharper slowdown. The official Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI), released by the National Bureau of Statistics on Wednesday, edged up to 50.1 in March from February's 49.9. In another sign that businesses faced lackluster demand, a separate survey of China's services sector showed the official non-manufacturing PMI fell to 53.7 from February's 53.9, hugging a one-year low of 53.7 struck in January. The services sector was the lone bright spot in China's slowing economy last year, expanding strongly and creating more jobs even as activity in the factory sector fizzled.
  • Asian stocks sag, dollar falls vs yen as Nikkei recoils
    Asian stocks sagged on Wednesday, taking their lead from weaker U.S. shares, while the dollar slid against the yen as Tokyo's Nikkei recoiled in volatile trade. Crude oil prices continued to decline as negotiations between Iran and world powers over nuclear technology with potential supply implications extended beyond a deadline. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan stood little changed, meandering in and out of the red. Japan's Nikkei was down 0.9 percent after losing as much as 1.4 percent in volatile trade as investors sold recent gainers to lock in profits on the first day of the Japanese financial year.
  • China says Taiwan welcome to join AIIB with appropriate name
    China welcomes Taiwan's decision to apply to join the Beijing-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) as long as the self-ruled island uses an appropriate name, state news agency Xinhua reported on Wednesday. China's Taiwan Affairs Office has received Taiwan's letter of intent to join and has passed it to the AIIB's interim secretariat, Xinhua cited Taiwan Affairs Office spokesman Ma Xiaoguang as saying.
