I've had a mini-blind on my window for fifteen years which finally wore out, so I set out to replace it. I don't want anything fancy, just a good quality, plain 1" mini-blind. Dream on. All I can find is shoddy junk. The price is low, I will grant that, but I don't care about price; I am quite willing to pay for quality. Quality seems unavailable; all I can find in stores is crap that I will not hang in my window and that doesn't function properly in any case. Even the demonstrators in the stores don't work properly.
It's all made overseas, and it's all essentially garbage. Sad.
