A new baby can bring with it a bundle of new responsibilities, leaving parents anxious and in need of assistance. Thankfully, buybuy BABY’s expansive retail stores help preserve parental sanity with more than 20,000 products designed to ease the process of raising an infant or toddler. Online product guides and in-store registry specialists help parents sift through the wealth of strollers, highchairs, and other baby essentials from an encyclopedic list of brands.
Though buybuy BABY's stores can be as large as 60,000 square feet, parents feel like the center of attention thanks to private feeding rooms where they can freshen up their infants or test out new pacifiers without judgment. At the register, shoppers can present competitor pricing or coupons, which buybuy BABY honors as a commitment to keeping things affordable. Even after items have been wrapped in their signature pastel paper and shipped out, buybuy BABY looks out for families by faithfully reposting government recalls and accepting returns at all stores and online warehouses, even during naptime.
In their New Jersey and Michigan facilities, Wicked Flames’ candle makers hand-pour natural, kosher, nontoxic, dye-free candles. Essential oils mingle with soy wax to create soothing aromas as candles burn, including island-inspired aloha, spicy cinnamon, and fresh lemon verbena. Many candles boast aromatherapy benefits such as improving moods or masking the smell of a roommate’s postbreakup apathy-scented candle. Because soy candles burn cooler than conventional candles, they are less likely to leave sooty black on jars and walls, and Wicked Flame uses braided cotton wicks to reduce smoke. Each candle burns approximately 10–12 hours per ounce, and candles are available in 2- to 30-ounce sizes.

For over 40 years, the curatorial staff of Artist Frame Gallery have been stocking fine display items, art prints, and custom framing materials. A decade ago, interior designer Tena Mancini took over the seasoned establishment, and her keen eye for lively décor has informed the shop ever since. Tena stocks over 4,000 kinds of moulding, which can be used to enshrine unframed art, a fresh diploma, or the first draft of your novel. Influenced by Mancini's professional background, the gallery's diplomats can pay complimentary house- and office-calls to helpfully opine on framing and décor choices.
