The inventory at Davey Jones Fireworks Superstore helps patrons celebrate holidays all year round. During the summer, they'll focus on fireworks, for example. Just as its famous namesake once ruled the water, Davey Jones Fireworks Superstore helps customers seize control of another vast ocean, the night's sky. Evenings burst to life as artillery shells soar into the heavens and explode in patterns of brilliant color. Multishot displays launch firework after firework, leaving onlookers to marvel at a choreographed dance of light and sound. Not everything in Davey Jones' large stock of pyrotechnics flies towards Earth's ceiling, however. Sparklers, fountains, and smoke balls add character to celebrations right at ground level.

The depilation artists at Brow Art 23's boutique produce carefully sculpted eyebrows and perform precision threading and waxing services.
