Hands On Pottery Studio offers ceramic visionaries the chance to create works of art in a creativity-inducing atmosphere. With a selection of more than 300 pieces of unfinished pottery ($5–$85), including those of the imported Italian variety, clay connoisseurs can choose from a wide variety of projects, from painting a plate to decorating a soap dispenser to artsying up a Declaration of Independence. Once the chosen piece is claimed, artists can head over to the design center, which offers access to stencils, stamps, idea books, and a computer providing design images that can be traced onto an item or forehead. With a battle plan in place, customers have unlimited access to an armory of 160 paints, pottery glazes, and puffy paints. For a shattered look, make a mosaic with a choice of bases, such as frames, mirrors, lazy Susans, and industrial meat freezers, and more than 90 jars of glass, marble, and ceramic bits to add texture to your piece.
As her own heels left their mark all over the world throughout her many trips as a stock-options trader and commercial realtor, Amy Puchowicz was preoccupied with one thing: the sheer variety of stylish shoes and the dearth of stores to sell them. So, after kicking off her business socks, Amy founded her eponymous boutique in 2007, stocking its shelves with upscale footwear to suit all occasions. Both locations feature a revolving collection of top designers such as Betsey Johnson, Beverly Feldman, and Farylrobin, and Amy employs only avid shoe-lovers to help each slipper to find its perfect match before midnight, when it turns back into a chariot's spare tire.
The staff at New Balance isn't concerned with simply selling shoes—their mission is to pair customers with the footwear that will carry them comfortably through life’s arduous steps. Understanding that an ill-fitting pair of athletic shoes can cause pain to joints and potentially damage knees, hips, and the back, associates measure the length and width of each client's foot and conduct a gait analysis to chart the trajectory of their stride when walking normally or running through ball pits. The data are collected to help the staff match clients with their ideal shoe, keeping them running longer and looking good while doing so.
