Costume Holiday House's inventory of wigs, makeup, suits, and party supplies enables costume changes ranging from spooky to comical. Customers can dress themselves as everything from pop-culture icons to terrifying specters and macabre forms, and an ample supply of wigs and accessories form the basis of inventive costumes that don’t require full-body suits or rubber masks. In addition to wearable Halloween goods, the shop also sells fog machines and animated props that set the stage for monster mashes and haunted houses. Costume Holiday House accommodates dress-up even in the Halloween off-season, with theater costume rentals for schools and community plays, or Second Skin colored bodysuits for showing team spirit at a baseball game or camouflaging into the green-screen background at local commercial shoots.

It might be hard to believe considering its vast array of products, but Sears, Roebuck and Co. began with one accessory: watches. In 1886, Richard W. Sears bought a box of unwanted watches from a jeweler, thinking he could turn a profit by selling them. He was correct and committed to the watch business by hiring Alvah C. Roebuck, an experienced watchmaker.

As time went on, though, their business expanded its umbrella far beyond what people wore on their wrists. Sears became known as the place to shop for almost any appliance, from sewing machines to those magical boxes that create water from nothing and clean your clothes.

Today, the stores stock clothing, accessories, electronics, kitchen equipment, tools for outdoor living, and home decor. This variety is sustained by Sears's proprietary brands—Kenmore, Craftsman, and DieHard, to name a few—and other national names that populate the shelves.

After having her first child, Rosa Lee had trouble finding a place that was equal parts play time for kids and chill time for adults. So in 2006, she took matters into her own hands and opened such a place. Rosa called her creation My Urban Toddler, a city-themed play center for kids and a welcoming, knowledgeable community for adults. Here, explorers aged 5 and younger can visit a firehouse, a market, a library, and even a theater for rounds of dress-up, story time, and puppet shows. Parents, meanwhile, enjoy various onsite grownup attractions, including classes and a boutique-style retail shop stocked with apparel, toys, and books.

Palumba, which takes its name from an amalgam of Latin words meaning "wooden dove," unlocks children's imaginations with heirloom-quality toys handcrafted from organic, natural, and sustainable materials. As part of Camden Rose, Palumba dispenses products made in the U.S. or through Fair Trade cooperatives, such as the cherry-wood rattle, comprised of a maple bead and wooden handle polished with beeswax, jojoba oil, and unicorn tears ($14.99). Kids can turn any flat surface or forehead into a racecourse with the Dandy Racer, a wooden dragster carved from walnut and other hardwoods ($19.99). Alternatively, aspiring artists awaken upon dipping a brush into a nontoxic watercolor set ($14.99 for a set of 7 colors; $19.99 for set of 14), and hands find much-needed heat with a pair of Ruskovilla wool mittens ($24.99). Holiday shoppers may also take advantage of Palumba's gift-wrapping service to cloak toys in eco-friendly trim, such as mulberry wrapping paper (prices vary per item).
