A 6,000-square-foot fashion emporium, Fashion Jewelry Paradise lays out table after table of stylish jewelry, scarves, and accessories, inviting browsers to try on thousands of distinctive styles. Necklaces ($5–$25) and bracelets ($3–$15) put beauty into the hands of the beholder, leading to a sense of accomplishment rivaling that of a financially successful mime, and varied selections of baroque, colorful rings ($8–$14) affordably adorn digits. A friendly staff patrols the spacious store, sleuth-capped and eager to help customers solve any fashion mysteries, while trendy, designer-inspired handbags ($10–$45), watches ($9–$14), and scarves ($5–$14) compete for attention from their sumptuous perches.
Eyes Etc. Optical's owner, Dr. Jeannine Fowler, keeps visual deterioration and disease at bay with her comprehensive eye exams, custom eyewear, and treatments. While her shop stocks frames from the likes of Vera Wang, Montblanc, Roberto Cavalli, and Guess, Dr. Fowler's foremost concern is her patient's visual acuity, evidenced by her precision lenses of choice. She fits frames with Nikon, Kodak, and Verilux lenses, which are available with coatings that keep UV rays, glare, and airborne pies away from sensitive eyes.
The team of meticulous jewelers at John Michael's Fine Jewelry outfits hands, wrists, necks, and ears with sparkling gems and breathes new life into damaged accessories with repair services. Conducted on-site, repair services can re-solder jewelry chains torn asunder ($18–$22), replace watch batteries ($8; $12 for lithium), or resize 14-karat rings ($30–$35, one size up) to their predryer-shrunk sizes. Pirates looking to catalogue their cache of goods can enlist an expert jeweler for appraisals ($45/hour), or add to their bounty with a pair of sterling silver Huggies hoop earrings ($95) or a Zable bracelet ($60).
Lolli's Jewelry makes old, broken jewelry look like new with onsite repairs performed by a team of registered jewelers. In business since 1993, the store also offers watch repairs, engravings, and custom jewelry design. Gemologist Jeff Hicks is on hand to appraise gemstones and other valuable pieces, so clients know exactly how many dollars worth of rubies they can fit into their mouths.
Inside the 8,000-square-foot location, the staff of Twinkle Twinkle Little Store organizes a collection of gently used, clean children’s gear, from clothing and strollers to books and bassinets. As a consignment shop, they only sell and purchase items that have not been recalled, stained, ripped, or damaged in any way. Though brimming with toys and accessories, the shop is meticulously organized. A fleet of strollers, car seats, and cribs stands in neat rows, and a book nook displays their library beside comfortable reading chairs. As parents browse, kids can play on trampolines, slides, and other equipment in age-specific play zones.
The shop’s values encourage this parent- and kid-friendly style. Before opening the shop, owner Cheryl Courson had struggled to balance her corporate career with motherhood. Frustrated, she decided to create a store that makes life easier for moms. She staffs parents, who may bring their children to work, as well as pregnant moms, joking “their nesting organizational skills are excellent!” She also offers an hourly store-credit wage in return for simple volunteer tasks such as hanging clothing and teaching children about the themes of fatherhood in Ulysses. Regular donations to kid- and mom-centric local charities further root the store in the community.
