Owners Josh and Niki Quinn originally opened the bustling boutique in 2007 to introduce modish shoppers to their own fashion line, Maxine, Dear, which has been carried by Bergdorf Goodman, Fred Segal, and other stores around the world. They have since expanded to include a diverse and refreshing variety of modern designs for men and women. Ladies can adorn themselves with jewelry such as a vintage Ohio plate necklace ($36) or a more mathematically minded green abacus necklace ($26), while laddies can add a hipster-friendly classiness to formal outfits with men's accessories such as wheat penny cufflinks ($18) or a blue-enamel skinny tie clip ($18). Tigertree also features belt buckles from their own Maxine, Dear line at an in-store discount ($23). For a status symbol that can also help you pass the time on long bus rides, buy a book. Niki's favorite is Kurt Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle ($15), while a copy of The Art of Manliness ($16.99) will let women know what they've been doing wrong.

Protecting homes' piping is only half the battle for The Eco Plumbers's skilled technicians. More importantly, they help homeowners by proposing eco-friendly solutions and commonplace lifestyle changes that can save energy or hundreds of gallons of water a year. This next-generation sense of environmental responsibility is at the forefront of the plumbers' minds, regardless of whether they are repairing a hot-water heater, fixing a faucet, or patching a weathered slip 'n' slide. They also demonstrate their green tendencies by recycling all of the leftover materials and scraps from each job, and they support local industries.
It was supposed to be an ordinary day of shopping for Dan Wolt. But at some point between flipping through hangers and carrying duds to the fitting room, a cartoon light bulb materialized above his head. "Buying windows," he said, as the idea alchemized in his brain, "Should be as simple as buying clothes from a local boutique." At the time, Dan was working for a window company dominated by high-pressure sales tactics and long presentations. He could tell customers felt stressed. So after his epiphany, Dan went home and founded Zen Windows, a window- and door-installing business whose signature is its relaxed, user-friendly style.
