In 1965, Popular Mechanics ran a small classified ad for Brookstone, a new catalog company that packed its pages with functional products and detail-oriented descriptions. Brookstone quickly expanded to meet the high demand for its collection of “hard-to-find tools,” and opened the door to its first retail location in 1973. Today, Brookstone’s more than 300 nationwide retail locations allow customers to test-drive its ever-growing lineup of interesting products, which range from Bluetooth-enabled massage chairs to power adapters designed for international travelers and their electronic passports. Staying true to its roots as a catalog company, Brookstone houses an even larger selection of products, each waiting patiently to be shipped, on its website.

Bright-blue garage doors slide shut over each unit inside the low-slung white buildings of Cowtown Mini Warehouse Self Storage, shutting off valuables such as boats, cars, or diamond-encrusted scepters from the outside world. Items are left inside the 240-square-foot spaces by clients who entrust the facility to safely and securely stow their belongings for a period of time. Owners rest easy knowing their boats are safely and securely tucked away for the cold months and smaller possessions are protected while they travel for extended periods of time. When they're ready to retrieve them, owners can show back up to the facility at any time of day or night to haul the items off.
