  • The Freckled Frog
    Recently founded with the intention of stocking a gift for every occasion, taste, and temperament, The Freckled Frog outfits present presenters with dinnerware, furniture, home décor, and wine accessories. Garden and house flags ($10.50–$25.99) add flavor to front yards and politely ward off literate insects, while a wide array of candles ($10–$22.99) can freshen up the home's long-forgotten oubliette. Otherwise, prep for upcoming dinner parties with wine glasses ($14.99–$19.50), cocktail napkins ($5.50), and an aroma-wafting Reed diffuser ($21.50) that spares hostesses the expense of hiring a department store perfume sprayer to spritz guests every time they leave the table.

  • Richmond Magazine
    Richmond magazine's pages glisten with stories and images of the River City's most intriguing dining, entertainment, shopping, and travel options. Each issue captures an exciting cover story in its glossy grip, detailing notable goings-on and spotlighting local movers and shakers. The monthly's reporters and editors highlight area restaurants in the dining section, and they fill the arts-and-entertainment section with news on upcoming concerts, gallery openings, back-alley dance offs, and theatrical performances. Meanwhile, news features keep locals abreast of politics and regional issues, a health section offers overviews of top doctors and facilities, and the life-and-style section details the ins and outs of fashion, along with articles on which travel hotspots are currently not overrun by gophers. Sister publication R Home arrives every other month with plenty of hints and tricks for home decor, gardening, and organizing.

  • Frame Nation
    A Guild Commended Framer, Frame Nation employs certified framers who match existing frames and create special projects from scratch. Behind the shop's brick storefront, staffers help customers to make selections from more than 2,000 frame samples, including acrylic, steel-welded, and wood options. Combined with glass, museum-quality practices, and a tiny flux capacitor, these protective casings preserve everything from diplomas to wedding photos. To find inspiration for their own creations, visitors need only view the artwork lining the walls. Frame Nation regularly displays the handiwork of local artists; one ever-present exhibit includes a collection of frames and three-dimensional collages crafted from recycled materials.

  • Stony Point Fashion Park
    In 1965, Popular Mechanics ran a small classified ad for Brookstone, a new catalog company that packed its pages with functional products and detail-oriented descriptions. Brookstone quickly expanded to meet the high demand for its collection of ?hard-to-find tools,? and opened the door to its first retail location in 1973. Today, Brookstone?s more than 300 nationwide retail locations allow customers to test-drive its ever-growing lineup of interesting products, which range from Bluetooth-enabled massage chairs to power adapters designed for international travelers and their electronic passports. Staying true to its roots as a catalog company, Brookstone houses an even larger selection of products, each waiting patiently to be shipped, on its website.

  • Fountain Bookstore
    Fountain Bookstore's well-read staff curates a selection of national bestsellers and regional works, many of which have been autographed by their scribes. Adults, teens, and children can discover new reads by consulting staff recommendations or by channeling the ghosts of writers of old with pocket Ouija boards. In addition to the store's wide selection of tomes, events such as author readings or Young Adult Saturdays congregate book lovers for communal festivities. Dogs are welcome to trot into the bookstore alongside their owners, and complimentary curbside delivery service allows patrons and canines to retrieve previously ordered books without stepping out of the car.

  • Larger Than Life Prints
    Larger Than Life specializes in wall art that combines modern materials with state-of-the-art digital-production technologies. With today's Groupon, you'll receive one of its panoramic wall murals, 48 inches by 12 inches in size. Browse the selection of city- and landscapes and order online. Keep it local with a shot of the Museum of Art's classical architecture or the Swann Memorial Fountain, or roam far away with a sweeping shot of a dewy, cobbled Paris street at dawn. Hop in a convenient TARDIS and travel to ancient times with shots of the Pyramids at Giza, or go to the temple ruins in Machu Picchu. Tropical and mountain scenes are also available, along with fields of vividly red tulips and a diner on Route 66. Think not on frames or complicated mounting procedures; all murals are printed on fabric paper and designed to adhere to any kind of wall material, all without leaving residue or damaging the underlying surface. If a band of renegade apiarists is dangerously close to discovering the galvanized-steel hive stocked with superbees in your neighbor's backyard, and you need to leave town, simply peel the mural and go; it's safe to remove and reapply numerous times.
