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.

  • Facebook says SEC's IPO probe ends, extending WhatsApp closing date
    In its quarterly report filed on Thursday, Facebook said the regulator in May "notified us that it had terminated its inquiry and that no enforcement action had been recommended by the SEC." Facebook shares began trading on May 18, 2012, but soon fell below their $38 per share offering price and had lost more than half their value by the middle of August, angering investors. Investors also complained they were not told just prior to the IPO that analysts at Facebook's investment banks were cutting their forecasts after learning of the company's internal projections for advertising revenue. The end of the SEC probe does not affect shareholder litigation against Facebook, Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg and many banks over the Menlo Park, California-based company's IPO.
  • U.S. business spending data gives mixed signals on growth
    A mixed reading on the health of U.S. business investment on Friday suggested the economy may not have rebounded as strongly in the second quarter as previously believed, but it offered hope for the rest of 2014. Non-defense capital goods orders excluding aircraft, a closely watched proxy for business spending plans, rebounded 1.4 percent after declining by a downwardly revised 1.2 percent the prior month, the Commerce Department said. Core capital goods shipments are used to calculate equipment spending in the government's gross domestic product measurement. "The weak performance in core capital goods shipments during the quarter suggests that this segment of the economy is unlikely to contribute much to economic activity," said Millan Mulraine, deputy chief economist at TD Securities in New York.
  • Wall St. closes lower on Amazon, Visa; S&P's weekly gain erased
    U.S. stocks closed lower on Friday in a broad consumer discretionary-led selloff after Visa and Amazon, a pair of closely watched bellwether names, reported disappointing results. While the S&P 500 found support at its 14-day moving average, suggesting a recent positive trend in equities remains intact, the day's decline was enough to erase the benchmark index's gain for the week. Amazon.com Inc tumbled 9.6 percent to $324.01 as the biggest drag on the S&P 500 after reporting an unexpectedly big second-quarter loss due to greater expenses on investments. Visa Inc was the Dow's largest decliner, down 3.6 percent to $214.77 after the world's largest credit and debit card company cut its revenue forecast for the year.
