A childhood charm bracelet. A necklace for prom. A pair of earrings to wear on your wedding day. Since 1968, the accessorizing experts at Beads ?N Things have been crafting inimitable jewelry to model during life?s many occasions. When taking over the full-service bead shop in 1984, the current owners began cementing their reputation as a reliable source for beading advice. They regularly unveil the tricks of the trade to visitors during private lessons, group classes, and casual conversations at the counter.
At Beads ?N Things, arts-and-crafters can find all the supplies needed to string together their own unique accessories. The shop's display cases and racks brim with pendants, freshwater pearls, and beads carved out of almost every material imaginable, including metals, bone, semiprecious stones, and hand-cut Czech glass. Fully equipped kits and learning materials inspire amateur and experienced artisans alike to pursue various beading projects. Finished pieces of jewelry hang on display, and guests hoping for more personalized trimmings can commission custom items. The staff also repairs cherished possessions, carefully restringing tattered strands and replacing missing parts.
The Yarne Source endows the needling masses with supplies and seminars to further talents from amateur to expert.

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.
In the cozy confines of Created By Us's art studio, clients daub bisque figurines, dishware and vases with personalized designs as they sip espresso drinks from the on-site coffee bar. A staffer oversees all proceedings, armed with technical tips and advice on color palette. After fully decorating their masterpieces, patrons leave them behind for studio staffers to glaze and finish, rather than holding them over the next campfire along with the camp counselor's retainer. For special occasions, children and adult revelers alike can take their painting projects into private-party rooms decorated with balloons and fuel their efforts with provided popcorn.
After witnessing his first store, Port of Pittsford Gifts, thrive in its eponymous locale, owner Michael Miller decided to shepherd his success to his hometown.
