At Chapmans’ Frame & Gallery, archival experts wield 18 years of experience to snugly fit photos into custom frames, and an assortment of artwork and accessories awaits to adorn bare walls, alcoves, and limbs. Patrons can shorten holiday shopping lists with a variety of small gift items. Small prints or handmade earrings stuff stockings with artistic style, and easels proudly display shoppers' masterpieces or still-lifes that double as impeccably detailed grocery lists. Pulling from a large selection of customized wood and matting ($50—$200), Chapmans’ framing fanatics preserve beloved photos or precious works or art, creating custom pieces that may be as simple or as opulent as the customer deems fit. Staff border an 11"x14" print with a two-inch double mat, a black wood frame, glass, backing, and finish ($100) before returning it ready for display above a mantel or inside the refrigerator.
Health Hut founder Kurt Boehm doesn't think that eating healthy should have to be so expensive—he aims for competitive pricing in his stores, where sugar- and preservative-laden junk food is replaced by healthful foods and organic produce. The stores lay claim to the most complete selection of supplements and natural foods in southeastern Wisconsin, an inventory that's rounded out by homeopathic remedies, herbal extracts, and fitness-minded foodstuffs such as protein shakes. Beyond their brick-and-mortar outposts, Health Hut is also an online database for current or curious shoppers. Their website includes online shopping, healthy recipes, and a glossary that enumerates the nutritional benefits and uses for various foods and ingredients found in the store.
