Bejeweled with gem-like skewered grapes, the Delicious Fruit Design bouquet pops with a starburst of chocolate-drenched and undrenched strawberries rocketing past honeydew slices. Skillfully shaped cantaloupe daisies sport glistening pineapple petals, communicating love to significant others or appreciation to favorite limbo dancers. Alternatively, woo eyes and tongues with chocolate-drenched apple wedges, handsomely arranged in a gift-ready box. A dozen ripe strawberries hand-dipped in semisweet chocolate peek out of their package, tempting onlookers with finger-staining juiciness. Whether drizzled in chocolate or served au naturel, each bite remains free of preservatives and lower-back tattoos.
Super Spa's amiable nail pros refine phalanges with long-lasting gel manicures and relaxing pedicures. During the one-hour appointment, staff members shape nails and cuticles before fortifying finger fronts with the Axxium gel system by OPI, which lasts chip-free for up to 14 days and then soaks off in minutes. Digits can gleam with vivid blues and deep magentas or attract flower bushes by dressing in rosy hues. Feet get in on the pampering during a soothing pedicure that exfoliates and softens skin before technicians daub nail beds with a coat of shiny polish, adding a splash of color to open-toed heels or plastic-wrap socks.

Beyond mattresses, the warehouse also carries an ample collection of box springs, full bed sets with rails and headboards, and even premium futon mattresses that revitalize foldable couches.

Amicus Green Building Center brings an eco-friendly approach to the building process with its inventory of green and sustainable materials. Each product in the store undergoes extensive review to determine its potential energy savings, environmental integrity, and ability to intimidate smog that shows up unannounced to dinner parties. New initiates into the world of healthy eco-living may wish to start with a safety test kit ($10.95 each) to discover just how much asbestos, lead dust, or radon lurks in the shadowy recesses of their home. Said shadows can be banished with the efficient lighting of compact fluorescent light bulbs ($5.19 each for small bulbs), which offer long life and warm light quality, or light-emitting diodes ($60.40 each for recessed bulbs) that pack an average 40,000 hours, or approximately 80,000 equally illuminating episodes of Frasier, of light.
