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.

From floor to ceiling, the shelves of Crack'd Pot are lined with possibilities. There, more than 500 shapes of raw ceramic bisques are ripe for the picking. Available in 10 different categories, varieties range from dinnerware and necklaces to cookie jars. The studio's collection of glazes, available in a myriad of hues, matches the depth of the selection of provided brushes, sponges, and stamps. The staff allows guests to take as much time as they'd like to use these tools in creating their pieces—guests pay a flat fee rather than an hourly or lightyearly fee. Finished products are ready in approximately a week—glazed and fired by the staff—which makes all pieces food-safe.

They extend this knowledge to Sankey's with a rotating roster of 10 North Carolina beers on tap, but also accompany their drinks with a menu of hearty pub-grub. Texas caviar, crispy wings, and a host of burgers and sandwiches are served in a dining room filled with beer-themed artwork, from local labels to impressionist paintings of keg stands.

At ClayEscape, hundreds of blank clay pieces line the walls, waiting for a new life in someone?s garden, kitchen, or dining room. Instructors help visitors pick the piece that best suits their artistic intention, and then painters go to work selecting from more than 90 paint colors and 68 specialty glazes with which to decorate their pottery. Stencils, stamps, and sponges help fuel the artistic process. One week later, pieces emerge shiny and brilliant, ready to take home. ClayEscape also hosts private parties for events such as birthdays, bridal showers, Girl Scouts, and lady's nights, and it also holds special events for holidays such as Mother's Day. Summer camps are also available.
