Art Thyme's spacious studio holds up to 100 artists at any given moment who partake in activities including paint-your-own-pottery, clay modeling, and mosaics. Before beginning an artistic endeavor, guests can hunt through a variety of ceramic pieces to paint or build their own from scratch. During open-studio hours, professionals aid guests, showing them how to place tiles onto their mosaic frog or paint a water dish for a pet. Art classes take this learning to a more intense level, making pupils into masters of different media such as clay, canvas, and ceramics.
Authentic Team Merchandise's two venerable sports-apparel establishments serve up quality gear ideal for everyone from casual tailgaters to dedicated torso painters. Visitors to It's Bucs & Bulls Heaven can dress their hot dogs with team pride thanks to a Bucs condiment dispenser ($12.99) or artfully disguise disastrous preadolescent haircuts with a Rays toddler mascot hat ($13.99). Stop by Bulls Heaven, dedicated solely to Bulls gear, to coddle overly modest beer bottles with the help of USF pigskin bottle suits ($8.99 each) or decorate your office or next-door neighbor with a Bulls sticker set ($9.88).
Greenpiece Collectables' owner, Tina McIntosh, goes to great lengths to forge friendships with members of the community visiting her sunny storefront by assembling a spread of fresh-baked bread, coffee, and tea every morning for passersby to take delight in. The shop's friendly staff members––many doubling as working artists––guide treasure hunters through an ever-changing trove of new and vintage wares and even accept requests to track down particular antique heirlooms or long-lost left socks. In the evenings, Tina transforms her shop into an event space for public soirees, including a weekly Girls Night Out.
Word has it that EPIC stands for "everything priced insanely cheap." Epic is also an ideal descriptor for the music video on the store’s website—a memorable tune by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis titled "Thrift Shop." In the video, the rap duo, clad in secondhand fur coats and flannel PJs, cruises around a thrift store throwing out lines like, "I'm gonna pop some tags—only got $20 in my pocket." It serves as a catchy reminder of how far $20 goes at Epic Thrift, which offers a rotating stock of gently used apparel, books, CDs, and home furnishings.
Without the proper equipment, humans couldn't live in an underwater home for more than a minute or two. But with their canvases of surfers and sea creatures, ready2hangart.com's resident photographers Nicola Lugo and Chris Doherty help homes take on an under-the-sea style. The aquatic-themed stills are among ready2hangart.com's many decorative works, which range from vintage posters and abstract paintings to the celebrity-inspired collages of Alexis Bueno.
Aside from the artists who distribute their work exclusively through the website, ready2hangart.com specializes in manufacturing the work of another burgeoning talent: you. With the site's Create Your Own Art feature, customers can preserve their favorite uploaded images on gallery wrapped canvases or acrylic plexi mounts.
