Every September, Aw Shucks farms opens its fields to the public and celebrates harvest season with a variety of family-friendly activities. The hallmark attraction is the farm's annual corn maze, a beloved fall tradition that invites guests to navigate the seven foot corn stalks by light of day, or at night, guided by flashlights. But the fun doesn't stop once they find the exit?a grain bin slide, tumbleweed roll, antique train car, and paddleboats are just a few of the attractions waiting to be explored by visitors young and old. Hayrides give passengers a scenic view of the farm grounds during the day, while at night, adventurous souls can gather around a bonfire to devour s'mores and listen to spine-tingling tales told by local storytellers.
Of course, if scary stories aren't enough to raise the hair on your neck, you can always attempt the farm's other blood-curdling attraction: the 13th Acre Haunted House. Beginning at dusk on Friday and Saturday nights, horrific creatures descend upon the farm to terrorize the living as they wind their way through the darkened woods. The scenes are so gruesome, that the event is not recommended for children under age 8 or theater critics who are easily bothered by overacting.
Heartfelt notes from Bottled Up Emotions let loved ones know how much you care. Here's how it works: participants fill out a simple questionnaire with personalized messages to their special someones, which can be as succinct as "Be mine" or as specific as ?Tax evasion is a serious offense.? The Bottled Up team will then send out those messages for a Valentine's Day arrival. At the end of the year, the team also crafts festive Christmas messages for children and family members.
Atlantic Bedding and Furniture showrooms speckle the Southeast, each one a treasure-trove of fine furniture and top-brand mattresses.

If an item is out of stock, the attendants can have it shipped directly from the company's central warehouse—a cavernous storeroom packed with furniture from top vendors like Coaster, Sealy, and Lifestyle Solutions. Much of the furniture is available online, enabling customers to shop from the comfort of home.
Father-and-son team Robert and Fred Lee worked as homebuilders for years before going into business selling lights in 1965, so they knew how quickly something impressive could rise from a humble foundation. Sure enough, Lee Lighting, their small family company, grew to include a vast online retail shop and one of the largest lighting dealers in Texas. They've even purchased Savoy, a company that designs fixtures to bring cheer to dining rooms and make rooms full of ventriloquist dummies less terrifying.
Lee Lighting stocks shelves with a diverse selection of indoor lamps from brands including ELK Lighting, Quoizel, and Hudson Valley. Staffers certified by the American Lighting Association move beneath the dazzling crystal sprays and faux candles of chandeliers. They suggest outdoor lighting to transform backyards into regal terraces. They also stay abreast of lighting trends to help patrons select lights that will stay in style.
