The Blue Moon Trading Company compiles one-of-a-kind vintage and consignment furniture. Each individually priced chair, table, and cowhide-covered stool adds detail to homes, building personality-infused rooms out of repurposed items just as a lonely boy builds friends out of repurposed mason jars. Speckle a dining room with medium-size poured candles ($19 each or $35 for two) or stun dinner guests with one of Blue Moon’s studio-crafted salvaged heart-of-pine dining tables ($1,295). Dens displaying the regal alabaster caned chair ($45) beside the vintage 1950s watercolor of boats on turquoise water ($65) create a welcome room if Poseidon stops by while road-tripping. The store's regular shop-and-sip events allow shoppers to enjoy sips of champagne alongside eye-filling spreads of wares.
From the moment you set foot inside the garage, it’s clear that the technicians at K.O.B. Kustoms know how to give a car personality, without having to make it sentient by reciting incantations when the moon is full. Cars here sport brightly colored interiors, burnished rims, and customized sound systems by Kenwood, Crossfire Car Audio, and XS Power, helping customers to achieve the regal status of the business’s namesake—the King of Bass. Its creations have earned it widespread recognition, with features in several publications, including car-audio-focused magazines as well as more mainstream periodicals such as Forbes.
At Color Me Mine, experts in clay decoration put paintbrushes and pottery in the mitts of customers old and young, guiding them through the process of creation. Pairs of painters peruse the studio's more than 400 ceramics including plates, bowls, and figurines resembling animals or Vincent van Gogh's easel. Each budding Pollock then selects one item and slathers an unlimited supply of paint on their chosen pieces, flexing creative muscles with provided materials and various painting techniques, such as stamping, sponging, and splattering. When each work of art is completed, staff members glaze and fire the masterpieces, and customers can pick up their creations five to seven days later. Music and natural-wood furniture foster a relaxing environment in Color Me Mine's studio, which is peppered with finished pieces created by past customers and sentient pottery wheels.
The all-female staff at Milagros, who proudly believe in “long, hot baths” and high-quality ingredients, routinely handcraft half-pound bars of Sister Agnes soap from glycerin, a natural humectant that deftly draws moisture and magnets to the skin. Their selection of soaps evokes innumerable essences, from the intoxicating musk of a wine cellar to the homespun nostalgia of the linen closet. The friendly instructors happily impart their squeaky-clean art to budding soapsmiths, teaching them to create with a variety of shapes, colors, and scents during 90-minute classes.
