Phantom Fireworks first burst onto the scene more than three decades ago. Today, the company lights up backyards of America from coast-to-coast with more than 1,200 permanent and temporary locations.
Much like its products, Phantom?s employees frequently take to the skies. They travel around the globe in search of the industry's latest ground and aerial displays before returning home with rockets, missiles, fountains, and aerial repeaters. From there, an extensive in-house testing program takes over, checking each item's safety before it?s sold to the public.
That testing program is just one of Phantom?s pillars of safety. The company also holds memberships with multiple pyrotechnics organizations, and it offers customers additional information about fireworks laws and history through its Fireworks University.
The sleek, contemporary Fringe Boutique decorates bare-walled flesh residences with designer clothes, denim, footwear, handbags, and jewelry. Dangle a shiny Swarovski bangle from five- or six-fingered appendages ($30–$49), then show off sparkly wrists as torsos flaunt a stylish spring top from Sauce ($48), Miss Me ($68), or Velvet ($88), among others. Denim ponchos can be gorgeously complemented with sub-belly button dressings such as Hudson mid-rise skinny jeans ($168) and Rock Revival bootcut jeans ($138). The store also offers regular women’s and men’s nights, as well as private-shopping appointments, enabling customers to peruse wares free of the judgmental gaze of fashionista hoot owls.
