A one-stop shop for tennis players of all stripes, Silton Tennis prepares racketeers for upcoming matches with a deep inventory of tennis gear and professional stringing services. The sheer variety of rackets from top brands including Wilson, Prince, and Babolat allows players to pick a frame befitting their particular style, and court-durable shoes help them grind out long rallies and land softly after climbing the chain-link fence to get extra height on a serve. Beyond the selection of new gear, the staff keeps trusted rackets strong by restringing them on a professional-grade Babolat machine.
The sartorial pros at Komal's Custom Tailors and Clothiers craft and fit men’s and women’s bespoke suits, jackets, shirts, dresses, and tuxedos to match each client's frame and taste. Choosing from more than 2,000 fabrics from global brands such as Royal Oaks and Ermenegildo Zegna, tailors outfit shoulders in swank jackets ornamented with hand-sewn buttons or tuxedos that keep men looking sharp while standing on top of nearby wedding cakes. Fittings in the outfitter's Framingham storefront grant the tailors the opportunity to capture all information needed, and appointments scheduled in patrons’ homes or offices accommodate busy schedules or those who need final approval from judgmental family pets. Kaleidoscopic ties and accessories complete fetching ensembles, and gift certificates and tuxedo rentals sail into special events when needed
GetModa Designer Consignment Boutique’s staff serves customers who crave designer style. But by purveying consignment garments, they save those same customers money. After carefully selecting which wares can enter their selection—the team only accepts designer labels that are clean and in excellent condition—they pass on seasonal clothing and accessories to patrons. From Missoni shirts and Paige Denim skinny jeans to Chanel sunglasses and Gucci scarves, the shelves boast both outfit-overhauling pieces and slight but powerful flourishes capable of making a daisy look like a daisy wearing a dashing Alexis Bittar Swarovski crystal cuff bracelet.
Chocolate changed David and Pam Griffin's lives. David was more than three decades into a manufacturing career, while his wife, Pam, was 16 years deep in a career at a major coffee chain. The two became restless in their respective careers, so they left their jobs and looked for a joint business venture. They both settled on chocolate, inspiring David to begin studying under experienced pastry chef Delphin Gnomes at the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts. He started to create his own chocolate varieties, often incorporating healthy ingredients. In fact, his first creation was a dairy-free dark chocolate topped with pistachio. Pam, meanwhile, wanted to come up with an appropriate name for the business that reflects the catharsis and creativity chocolate can inspire. Hence, Chocolate Therapy was born. Today, the duo continues to produce innovative treats, displaying their decadent oeuvre in their store’s glass display case.
David and Pam can also schedule parties at their store. During the festivities, adults, children, or undercover oompa loompas masquerading as children can tour the chocolate-making facility and discover the secrets behind how the Griffins create their truffles, dipped caramels, and molded chocolates.
