The Holly Mill & Company offers shoppers wares that are born and raised in Michigan, and lets them customize beauty products to their own sniffing standards inside the historic 1917 Holly Mill. Design your own smellable destiny with more than 500 scents to mix and match, or go with a pre-blended bouquet of aromas, which can be applied to a covey of products. Custom fragrant oils (1 dram for $10, 2 dram for $15, .5 oz. for $25) or Himalayan bath salt crystals ($7–$15) kick fresh aromas into washtubs, and lotions, soaps, and massage oils (8 oz. for $16, 16 oz. for $22) keep skin smelling and feeling clean. Make memories at the office by lining your work hat with smoldering incense, which comes in custom scented (100 sticks for $25) or prescented varieties (100 for $15). Spicy up a Sunday afternoon or settle a rowdy stomach with the English-produced Mad Hatter tea blend ($14 for a box), which inspires patrons to shout "Tea Time!" and ask their friend a riddle after every sip.

Elvis Presley is alive and well inside Graceland Wine Shoppe: thousands of pieces of memorabilia?all depicting the King himself?line the restaurant and shop's walls. But of course, that's not the only reason people shimmy and shake their way in from far and wide.
The real star here is owner and lifelong Elvis collector Dave, who has earned his own fair share of fans for his Graceland-inspired eats. These include "The King" gyro with tzatziki sauce; "The King" special Chicago-style cheese and pepperoni deep-dish pizza; and the "Heart Stopper" sub, which towers with five kinds of meat, pizza sauce, and Italian dressing. As for the shoppe portion of his restaurant's name, Dave earns that through an onsite retail section which sells wine, beer, and extra letters for sprucing up the ends of words.
At each of its seven locations across Michigan, Seung-Ni Fit Club helps clients of all ability reach peak physical condition through kickboxing, bootcamps, and the studio's proprietary body-sculpting and slimming regimens. Core workouts build strong abdominal and lower-back muscles with targeted movements, while kickboxing sessions burn up to 1,000 calories per hour as participants fight against the resistance of heavy bags and invisible bad guys. Zumba classes get bodies moving to infectious Latin rhythms, and BodySculpt classes build dense, well-defined musculature through high-intensity dumbbell workouts.
For a more defense-based workout, exercisers can turn to Seung Ni's comprehensive martial arts program. Classes include Brazilian jiu-jitsu, taekwondo, and kids' programs for children as young as three.
For more than 50 years, shoppers have ambled through the aisles of La Rosa Market and stocked carts with fresh-baked breads, deli products, and the essentials. Craft grandiose hoagies or time-sensitive sculptures with a diverse selection of Boar's Head deli meats and cheeses ($6–$9/lb.), or fuel barbecues with protein-packed bites of AngusPride Choice beef ($6+/lb.). Dough designers knead, toss, and roll floured mounds into freshly baked tongue warmers, including breads, pies, cakes and pastries ($2–$15). After culling enough rations to restock pantry shelves and vacant bowling-trophy cases, cart cabbies can browse a vibrant floral section that includes roses by the dozen ($9.99) and mixed bouquets ($7.99). Shoppers can also corral bundles of firewood ($4.99) to illuminate backyard gatherings.
The gregarious grocers at the locally owned Country Lake Market bundle up fresh cuts of meat while decimating cooking time for residential meal makers with prepared dinners. Meat seekers tote home pork chops, T-bone steaks, or pork sausages by the pound (prices vary) to grill up on backyard barbecues or give up to raccoon mafias running protection rackets. Muffle the rumbling chorus of a family of stomachs with the 12-piece chicken dinner paired with potato wedges, coleslaw, and a loaf of homemade bread ($29.95). An italian sausage pita ($5.49) satiates lone lunchers, and a whole slab of cooked ribs ($15.99) leaves customers with enough bones left over to cobble together a makeshift xylophone.
