Upholstery shop?

Need to get some leather redone, Steering wheel rim, center console arm rest, and a shift knob, anyone know a shop that does small stuff like this for a decent price? I have no idea what kind of cost im looking at. Here's what needs redone:

theres a guy on Supramania that sells new arm rests and boots, you can customize material color and stitching, not too expensive

Not to jack the thread, but how much did it cost some of you to have your leather seats re upholstered? My front seats in the integra are pretty worn.

Not sure if you were asking me, but I only had them fix some stitching and dye some stains. It cost a total of $110 + tax, which I thought was very fair.

Well I definitely don't want an aftermarket wheel, can live with an aftermarket shift knob if its clean, the center console arm rest doesn't really bother me as it is.

I called around, its not cheap.. glad im not doing seats.

ya, when I was considering getting my seats recovered, it would have been cheaper to just buy new aftermarket seats. The materials aren't that expensive, but you pay alot for good craftsmanship.
