Free Folding Futon Frames

I have two folding futon frames available. One is the metal kind from target, in good shape, all parts there and working. The other is an old fashioned wooden slat one, REALLY nice, but needs simple hardware fashioned.

By the way, I am seeking a nice rocking chair and 18" wide hardwood dressors!

Calling or texting is best for me, just leave a message if I don't answer. Thanks!

Hedstrom Seedling Giveaway

It is once again time for free tree seedling orders! Hedstrom Lumber is taking orders via email through April 21st; please email your order and questions if possible rather than using the phone as we get an incredible number of orders.

Please specify quantity and species when ordering. Species available this year include red pine and white pine; we apologize, but the white spruce have all been spoken for at this time. Cook County property owners or renters may order seedlings, up to 250 seedlings per household. 

Pickup day will be Friday, May 5th from 9am-4pm at the Hedstrom Lumber garage, as usual. We do not hold seedlings for pickup at a later date, but you can send a friend! A reminder email will come out the week beforehand if you have ordered seedlings and left us an email address.
