The artisans behind K.H. Art & Framing understand that the best kind of preservation combines traditional techniques with modern technology. Each day, they draw on more than 20 years of experience as they craft museum-quality frames with 200 moulding options and conservation-grade glass and matting. Inside their photo lab, staffers look to the future, printing passport photos and canvas prints or digitally restoring images before storing them safely on CDs. While framers and technicians preserve memories, curators stay busy filling the studio's gallery with artwork—such as oil paintings, lithographs, and silk-screens—from both local and international artists. They also sell posters that can turn a house into a home or a bathroom stall into a personal workspace.
At Capitol Sedan & Limousine Service, highly trained drivers navigate a fleet of luxury vehicles that encompasses everything from four-seater Lincoln Town Cars with leather interiors to 22-passenger stretch H2 Hummers. They rev the refined engines 24 hours a day, shuttling bachelorette parties around town, dropping off sharply dressed students at prom, or safely ferrying patrons to local airports. Before embarking for baggage claims, chauffeurs confer with a flight tracker to ensure prompt arrival even when flights are early or delayed due to inclement weather or slow-moving flocks of kites.
