Reduce, reuse, recycle, reupholster, is motto of Willmar, Minn., upholstery hobbyist turned pro
WILLMAR -- Ernie Rousseau's motto is reduce, reuse, recycle and reupholster.
Rousseau, owner of Prairie Upholstery of Willmar, believes in the value of American craftsmanship.
"If you have something that's more than 7 or 8 years old, then it came from the United States, and our craftsmanship in furniture is far above and beyond (what is found elsewhere),'' he says.
"That's why people are interested in re-upholstery.''
