Armed with more than 20 years of framing experience and a lifelong passion for preserving artistic works, Héctor Puig personally helps customers select the perfect display methods for their pieces. Together, they sift through the gallery's selection, which includes wooden and metal frames with matte black, cherry, and antique gold finishes, to name a few. In addition to aesthetically completing a picture or a diploma's presentation, these frames, along with other materials, come in archival varieties for customers who value conservation above all else.
For inspiration, visitors can peruse the gallery's eclectic displays of paintings and sculptures by regional, national, and intergalactic artists. Héctor explained his motivation for continually seeking out these works to the Gainesville Sun in 2005, saying, "I want people to feel like they can come in and see what real art is about, as opposed to feeling like it's something they can't understand." Among these works are pieces from Héctor's personal collection of hand-carved santos de palo figures, which come from his native Puerto Rico and occasionally appear in domestic and international museums, according to Gainesville Magazine in 2006.

As an avid athlete in his spare time, Doctor of Chiropractic Kent Owens knows what’s at stake when it comes to maintaining a strong, properly functioning spine. At Dr. Owens’s own advanced chiropractic center, Core Family Health and Wellness, he puts his years of education—both on the field and in the classroom—to use as he gently adjusts spines and soothes aching muscles with massage therapy.
Though it is highly sanitized and filled with a dizzying array of advanced equipment, the ivory-toned clinic maintains a warm, non-intimidating atmosphere. This may be due to Dr. Owens’s friendly smile and demeanor as he sits behind the controls of a NASA-certified nerve-analysis machine or patiently explains to terrified clients why their x-rays look a lot like skeletons. Committed to holistic well-being, Dr. Owens also offers a weight-loss program that focuses on quickly pinching waistlines without relying on a crash diet. His doors remain open to clients with questions, and he even hosts a series of patient-appreciation events aptly entitled Dinner with the Doc.
For Bradley and Jennifer Ferguson, winemaking was initially just a hobby. They fermented their first wine in their kitchen using blueberries plucked from bushes on the grounds of their family's farm. Proud of their creation, they shared the wine with friends and continued to make a new batch each year during blueberry season. Years of practice made the wine tastier and tastier. They decided to make their hobby into a profession, naming their company Bluefield Estate Winery.
Today, they brew two versions of blueberry wine—one sweet, one dry—as well as wines derived from fruits such as peaches, mandarin oranges, or snozberries. Visitors to the vineyard can sample the libations, staining their fingers indigo as a reminder of a day spent picking blueberries and grapes straight from vines and bushes.
Personal trainers, coaches, and fitness professionals helm the staff at Complete Nutrition, drawing from their in-depth wellness knowledge to fulfill the company's philosophy that health is based on four components—hydration, supplements, diet, and exercise. They heed those guidelines as they curate an immense roster of vitamins, herbs, and nutrition supplements, many of which are developed by health-care experts, nutritionists, and chemists exclusively for the store. Their sundry products are designed to help patrons lose weight, enhance their athletic ability, or bolster their overall health, and many target more specific goals, such as building enough muscle to defeat Popeye in an arm-wrestling match.
Tobin Wagstaff has traveled quite an interesting path: he founded a nonprofit music school, and, in a turn of events profiled on ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, hobnobbed with rock royalty Kiss. All the while, Studio Percussion has been teaching pupils to tickle the ivories, strum the guitar, drum up a storm, and sing their favorite tunes, whether they’re jazz ballads or traditional Klingon folk songs. The instructors—all of whom remain active in the industry—help to whisk their pupils into the limelight during performances at UF sporting events, city music festivals, homecoming parades, and even family jam nights, during which participants take turns reciting their ancestral lineage to music.
Located just a few blocks from the University of Florida, Wolfgang Boutique keeps clients looking chic with a curated selection of clothing by brands such as Cheap Monday and Motel. Here, it doesn't take long to put together an on-trend ensemble for nearly any occasion. Lacy crop tops and designer jumpsuits share shelf-space with flowing dresses, leather-accented shorts, and edgy swimwear designs sure to impress. It's no wonder, then, that one Examiner contributor named the boutique one of Gainesville's best, go so far as to describe it as "the go-to shop for trendy, sophisticated women and men."
The Little Shop's kiddie wranglers lead children and their families in a wide variety of activities.

Although it's not included in the Groupon, The Little Café serves as a waiting area for parents, filling them with caffeinated beverages, snacks, and kid-friendly drinks.
The award-winning graphic designers at A.S.A.P. Screenprinting may spend their free time designing comic-book scenes and mastering musical instruments, but when it comes to work, they devote undivided creativity to their clients.

The team also swiftly brands tees with logos and whimsical images using embroidery and the professional guidance of unicorns.
Family owned and operated since 1916, this collection of car dealerships can skillfully service all horseless carriages.
