Silver lining department: Gas is $3.20 a gallon. Milk is $4. Electricity has nearly doubled in recent years. Is everything getting more expensive? No. Although inflation appears to be back in a big way, there are still significant deflationary forces in some parts of the economy. As long as overseas wages are lower than in the United States, as long as technology keeps improving electronic devices, and as long as open trade allows access to world markets, many prices will fail to keep up with those for food and energy.

Gardiners Furniture might be eating its Super Bowl bet but couldn't be happier about it. Gary Mullaney, co-owner of the Baltimore chain, said Monday that his phone has been ringing off the hook and reporters have been clamoring for interviews since an improbable offer came true. Gardiners told customers all furniture bought between Jan. 31 and 3 p.m. on the day of the game would be free if the Baltimore Ravens returned a kick for a touchdown during Sunday evening's Super Bowl . And then Jacoby Jones returned a kickoff 108 yards for a touchdown to open the second half, forcing the store to give away $600,000 in furnishings.

HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Arts and crafts style -- the early 20th century crop of sturdy, honest architecture and furniture for the common man -- blooms again.The field is so full that designers are distinguishing between twarts and crafts categories. Mission style is heavy, straight, no-nonsense oak. Prairie style, most often associated with Frank Lloyd Wright, is also mostly straight-lined and horizontal, but the scale is lighter and the designs more varied.But the real news here are arts and crafts' 1990 hybrids.

CHICAGO -- Do you like shrimp but wish it cost more? Need some bedroom furniture but hate getting a good deal on it? If so, you're very different from most Americans. You are, however, one of the few people who can rejoice in our national trade policies. Politicians know that consumers in this country are more than happy to buy foreign goods if the quality is sufficient and the price is right. They also know that explicit efforts to shut out imports are usually political fool's gold, more likely to bring defeat than victory at the polls.

If experience is the best teacher, some people are undoubtedly learning some valuable new coping skills these days. Like it or not, the economic recession is teaching some people to be by necessity what they never were by nature: frugal.Of course, shoestring decorating never went out of style for some of us. Sprucing up the living room always took a back seat to the light bill, taxes, tuition, car payments and orthodontia. But for others, budget decorating may be an acquired skill.If you're among them, don't fret.

Before you start this story, why not take a moment to adore your decor? You might praise your chair for how supportive it is, or because its appearance delights you today just as much as when you first met. The carpet, curtains and coffee table? Sigh! Blow them all a kiss. Or, don't. For, if you are like six out of 10 consumers surveyed recently by the American Furniture Manufacturers Association (AFMA), you're probably cohabiting with furniture you loathe. Asked which piece they regret most, the living room sofa was scorned by 22 percent of respondents, followed by bedroom furniture (12 percent)

A year ago, new federal regulations were issued that prohibit the dumping of almost anything -- plastic, paper, food, metal and glass -- into U.S. waters. The cost for violating the law includes a civil penalty of up to $25,000, a fine of up to $50,000 and a maximum of five years in prison.Regulations also require skippers of recreationalboats 26 feet and larger to prominently display a 9- by 4-inch anti-pollution placard. Over the past year, thousands of boaters have obtained the placard, but many others are still unaware of the requirement.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Furniture retailers are bracing for sharp increases in the price of bedroom furniture, with the Commerce Department expected to impose duties today in reaction to alleged dumping by Chinese manufacturers. The move comes after months of lobbying by some U.S. furniture makers, who contend that the Chinese dumped $1.4 billion in wooden bedroom furniture in the United States in 2003. Retailers and other U.S. furniture makers who have manufacturing operations in China are opposed to duties.

Q: What can I do about a set of matched, fruitwood bedroom furniture in the French provincial style? Even though it looks like a display in a down-market used-furniture store, I can't afford to replace it. But there must be a way to give the room some softness and interest isn't there?A: There actually are many ways to relieve the tedium of a tired old bedroom furniture set. One of the most effective is to tackle the monotony head-on by breaking up the matched look.Choose a piece that's particularly in need of a face lift, and paint it in a soft color like celadon green or Delft blue.
