Second Bloom Consignment hosts a revolving selection of women's and children's apparel and accessories. There's something for virtually every style, from maternity wear to designer prom dresses, as well as furniture and decor for the home.
Under the leadership of Valentin Skorsak, the tailoring team at Valentin's Clothiers & Custom Tailoring imbues each stitch and lapel of their custom wares with a combined 70 years of expertise. Using material supplied by high-end brands such as Sartoria Tosi and Gino Monti, Valentin and his colleagues tailor personalized men’s and women’s business suits, shirts, and ties in one-on-one sessions in the shop or at clients' homes and offices. Along with their tailoring services, the drapers at Valentin's Clothiers & Custom Tailoring alter any hem or length for clients who have outgrown their clothes or need room to smuggle extra watermelons into a business meeting.
The fashionistas at Small Wonders Boutique meticulously scrutinize prospective consignment pieces, accepting only the garments that meet exacting standards: freshly laundered and pressed; name brand; no older than three years; and devoid of smoke, stains, and holes. In addition to seeking out quality pieces, the staff strives to ensure a diverse selection, with women’s sizes ranging from XS to 4X and brands including Kate Spade, Ann Taylor, and Express. There’s also an ample selection of children’s and teens’ clothing as well as maternity wear by A Pea in the Pod and Liz Lange. Customers can keep their kids entertained in the store’s small play area while they peruse circular racks and reenact Elizabethan fashion montages.
For more than 50 years, the trio of optical specialists at Council Opticians have specialized in enhancing their clients' sight. Dr. Robert Gouinlock prescribes glasses and contact lens while also providing exams to detect potential health issues. Optician Donna Kabel specializes in matchmaking patients with flattering styles, helping tour the store's library of designer frames from brands such as Coach, Ray Ban, and Michael Kors. Greg Kardach rounds out the group with decades of experience as an optician, a skill he now uses to repair glasses. For quick convenience after appointments, the trio works in an onsite lab that allows them to produce or fix eyewear within an hour, a much faster method than tying magnifying glasses and chicken wire together.
