Encore! Upscale Resale maintains a stock of gently used clothing, accessories, furniture, and housewares primed to start their second lives. Trendy tops, shoes ($1.99+), and musical instruments ($10–$250) compete for new homes as friendly staff members help visitors navigate the store's neatly organized racks and chaotic hedge mazes. Patrons browse through shimmering folds of chiffon and satin during quests for the perfect formal or semiformal dress to accessorize with purses ($2.99–$6.99) and jewelry ($0.99–$4.99). Housewares, ranging from bread machines to lamps, join furniture ($10–$350) such as tables and desks in the crusade to populate barren abodes. Books ($0.50–$5) entertain word buffs for hours, and pet supplies ($1.99–$150) pamper four-legged pals with bedding, treats, and generous 401(k)s.
Joppa Minerals founder Amy Casto-Booher began her search for chemical-free cosmetics in 2005, when her daughter, Hayley, was diagnosed with psoriasis. Dissatisfied with the products she found on the market, Amy started crafting all-natural beauty products herself, eschewing additives for pure minerals. Amy's mineral foundation is her first and best-selling product, melding into skin in one of four formulas that cater to oily, aging, or gill-flecked skin. Amy also keeps her lightweight products—which include face creams, blush, eye shadow, and blemish treatments—at a reasonable price.
Family owned and operated since 1998, the Wayne Recreation Center echoes daily with the sounds of bowling balls cracking against pins from its 32 automatic-scoring lanes. Casual bowlers gather to test their hurling accuracy or over-the-shoulder throwing creativity, and leagues for adults, kids, and seniors offer weekly competitions for bragging rights or cash prizes. On Friday and Saturday nights, the alley transforms into a Cosmic Bowling command center, with Brunswick-licensed lighting, sound, and video equipment creating a fluorescent jungle alit with glowing orbs and otherworldly T-shirt lint.
