Dear Franny the Shopaholic: I have been looking and looking for dining room chair cushions, preferably with the little dots on one side so they won't slip. The size I am looking for would be 16- by 16- by 3-inches. Nothing that ties. - Doris, Villas
Dear Doris: Bed Bath & Beyond sells ones 15.5 inches by 3.5 inches thick that are non slip for $14.99 with no ties.
Dear Franny the Shopaholic: Trying to find plain white tie canvas sneakers, nothing fancy, the cheaper the better. - Denise
