    hi girls,
    just wondering if anyone has used a company called Hillarys Blinds?
    they advertise on TV all the time & always have 50% off blinds.
    anyway they are coming here tomorrow to measure & show me some designs, i am worried about it & letting someone into my house, i am wondering wether to cancel.

    please help someone :hug:

    I think that Hillary's are a franchise which is probably why it was a couple. My mum & dad go round to people's houses too so it doesn't seem so strange to me.

    We have just ordered 3 blinds from them. A really nice man came out and measured up then we all sat and had a cuppa while we chose which blinds we wanted. You are not obliged to buy :hug:

    I think they are REALLY expensive though I am sure the blinds would be good. Maybe a local company would do a better deal?

    aww thanks girls for all you're replys!
    the man has just left, he didn't have his wife with him though :think: maybe he already had a bit this morning :wink: :rotfl:

    anyway had the front room meaured & dining room for wooden look blinds ( not real wood) & it came out at £299 :shock: :shock:

    the dining room window is quite small too!
    the real wood ones were £500!!! ridiculous prices i'm afraid.
    got to keep looking then :roll:

    Get down Ikea and buy some wooden blinds. Thats where we got ours from. All you gotta do is buy the right size and drill a couple of holes and voila....wooden blinds!! :wink:

    If you have a dunelm mill near you they make blinds to measure at good prices and think they do wooden ones too.
