CORRECTION - Sandy Blazek is NOT an Interior Designer, she is a self taught interior decorator....there is a difference!

An Interior Designer is a 4 year college degree, with special training and skills.

An Interior Decorator has no formal training...no skills....

Sandy Blazek is a poser and a thief. Not a designer. My friends mother died and she had an estate sale, Sandy ran the sale. Things were missing. She is not an honest person. BEWARE!

Maybe she is an interior decorator. But I don't judge someone by their degree, rather I judge them by the quality of their work. Sandy's work speaks for itself. Her decorating is simply beautiful.

She is honest and trustworthy as well.

Decorator? NO. Designer? Absolutely NOT, Jerk? YES! Total Jerk? ABSOLUTELY!!!
I was pressured into purchasing a piece of furniture that I was told was the last one b/c it was soon to be discontinued. She told us she would put it on hold for us b/c we were not ready for it yet. So, my husband and I went to pick up the piece for my anniversary a month 1/2 later and it was sold to someone else? Needless to say we were pissed. Found out from Traditions that she LIED, it was not discontinued. She ignored my phone calls and never apologized. My brother also had issues with her as well. All I can say is BUYER BEWARE.

I feel sorry for the woman that she is so disliked. Sounds like you should stay away from this one.

So, a 4 year college degree is the only way to gain a skill? One can't study the subject any other way? One can't get hands-on experience outside a collegiate classroom? Having spent years in collegiage classrooms, I would have to say that they are no guarantee of skill-aquisition.
The medical community seems to agree. After medical school, new doctors are required to spend years in practical training, called residency.
I've no particular knowledge of the person you're discussing so I'm not commenting on her skill level.

I think your missing the point. The issue in question is not whether she has a title it sounds like people are very disatisified with the lack of customer service and how rude and pushy she is.

That was your point, and it may well be justified. I certainly don't have enough information on which to base an opinion on your point. My point deals with intellectual snobbery.
