Housed within an art gallery and wine shop, the Urraro Gallery outfits artwork and keepsakes with close-fitting protective frames. Staff lead patrons through a smorgasbord of wood and metal frames to find the border best suited to protect a portrait from harsh sunlight or the oily fingerprints of a child robot. A plethora of mats in various colors, textures, and shapes can accent prints, and shadow boxes house treasures such as a collection of medals, a lock of football-mascot fur, or a hobo's shadow. The average cost for a custom frame ranges $50–$150, and frame sizes range from quaint 4"x6" memory-keepers to 40"x60" frames large enough to hold a life-size print of a miniature pony. After framers finish their work on-site, clients can pick up the finished piece in the store or have it shipped home.
Grode Florist is a floral boutique specializing in contemporary and traditional floral and plant arrangements. To warm a cold room, or the chilly blood of an alligator you want be your pet and live beneath your kitchen sink, opt for an arrangement of tropicals such as the strawberry floral margarita, a bundle of brilliantly colored Dendrobium orchids, lilies, alstroemeria, and roses. Or, surprise a lover of sudsy brews with a beer mug of blooms, a display of fresh, white, mini carnations in an acrylic beer mug (filled with rocks, not beer or copies of Rodney Dangerfield's autobiography). Grode's also has a selection of silk, plant, and dried floral arrangements for the herbaceously-indecisive.

Phantom Fireworks first burst onto the scene more than three decades ago. Today, the company lights up backyards of America from coast-to-coast with more than 1,200 permanent and temporary locations.
Much like its products, Phantom’s employees frequently take to the skies. They travel around the globe in search of the industry's latest ground and aerial displays before returning home with rockets, missiles, fountains, and aerial repeaters. From there, an extensive in-house testing program takes over, checking each item's safety before it’s sold to the public.
That testing program is just one of Phantom’s pillars of safety. The company also holds memberships with multiple pyrotechnics organizations, and it offers customers additional information about fireworks laws and history through its Fireworks University.
