ZAGG’s sophisticated gadget shields stylishly help expensive devices weather the everyday threat of harmful wear and tear. Colorful sets of sheaths from the Unlimited Expression lineup armorize pocket pals in themed colors and costumes ($19.99+), and leather skins allow electronics to mimic chic wallets or tiny rectangular cows ($9.99+). Accessories such as ZAGGfoam cleaner ($9.99) keep mobile minicomps plugging away with clean, processor-safe solvents. In addition to standard shields and tools for everyday upkeep, ZAGG's custom-fitted invisible shield form-fits a self-healing protectant over smartphones and tablets, helping to protect them from debilitating scratches, smudges, and online cooties ($14.99–$24.99 for an Apple iPhone 4).
Civano Nursery presents visitors with multifarious flora, most of which were grown by expert horticulturists at a 70-acre farm in nearby Sahuarita. Pockets of climate-appropriate posies ($1.99+) or lush shrubs revitalize drab lawns and woo standoffish bees and butterflies. Gardeners who expect dirt to earn its keep can rubberneck through orchards of shade and fruit trees before plotting future salads over potted herbs and veggies. Clutches of hearty cacti, like their barbed-wire kin, can add a layer of security around lot perimeters and inspire spiky arm tattoos. Civano's attentive gardening gurus also dazzle acoustic nerves with jingling wind chimes and burbling water fountains ($89.99+), tuck adopted plants into glossy red planters ($9.99+), and ply budding botanists with sage advice. Tagalong kids and brown-thumbed companions can pass the time at an on-site petting zoo or practice putting green.
Though it began as a used bookstore 30 years ago when Bob Schlesinger bought the place from his dad for $1, Bookmans Entertainment Exchange has grown into a massive media clearinghouse. Bookmans gets its inventory from its customers, relieving them of CDs, comic books, video games and systems, musical instruments, and any other media that might be potential deal-breakers when bringing a tipsy Martha Stewart back to one's place. Find a copy of the Necronomicon to replace the one you left at the beach, revive your quixotic childhood dream of getting past level 3 in Battletoads, or remind yourself why you sold your ukulele jam band box set in the first place. Bookmans offers cash or store credit for those items and typically sells them for about half their original retail value—providing an incredible value for eco-conscious consumers who want to cut waste and avoid encouraging production of new DVDs of Battlefield Earth with their ironic purchase.
Collage Boutique styles ladies with a variety of fashionable and affordable runway-inspired clothes, shoes, and handbags. Browsers reap the benefits of one-on-one ministrations of helpful, style-conscious staffers, while the owner hand-picks everything, shuffling in new items weekly and moving old stock to the sale rack. Separates appease mix-and-matchers, with a variety of tops, such as balloon-sleeve sweaters ($44) and wide-arm boho blouses ($38), and bottoms, such as cropped trousers ($39) and sequin leggings ($39), a favorite among disco-ball impersonators. Colorful day dresses ($25–$89) vie with nocturnal options, such as a classic cap-sleeve little black dress ($62) and red mini frock ($89), for closet spots.
