It was great to go to Overstock and "shop" for veritical blinds and locate the right size and price range while sitting at my desk. Except for specialty blind & shade stores, most stores that sell blinds have a very limited stock --- size-wise, price-wise, style-wise, and color-wise. There was a little wait for the order to be processed, but it turned out to be an item worth waiting for. The blinds were a perfect fit and very good quality. I expect to have them up for years to come and I see no reason why they wouldn't remain looking good for an indefinite period of time.
