The talented embroiderers at The Monogram Studio artfully stitch beautiful motifs onto household items, clothing, and office supplies. After dropping off or sending in any item of their choice ($20+ for three-letter monogram, $25+ for names), customers can sport their monikers on terry-cloth robes, or legally claim rights to lost wallets by having their initials professionally sewn into them. Because The Monogram Studio eschews the use of embroidery hoops, each fabric surface remains unsullied from unsightly folds or circles. The studio's online emporium tempts shoppers with sundry items for personalized stitching, such as golf towels ($35), suitable for thoughtful gifting, or quilted saddle pads ($60) for helping horses to remember their riders' initials.
Patrons scoop colorful treats from overflowing bins and inhale the aroma of freshly baked cones at Sweet Teez’s whimsically decorated shop, which earned a Best of Westchester - Editors’ Pick nod from Westchester Magazine in 2011 for its candy buffet. Bag up more than 100 types of bulk candy ($0.70+/oz.), or make a toothy impression on a helping of handcrafted ice cream from Walnut Beach Creamery ($3.75) served in a fresh-baked, made-to-order waffle cone. Chocolate-covered pretzels, popcorn, and fruit satisfy sweet-toothed gourmets, and the shop’s selection of classic and old-fashioned candies cheer nostalgia buffs and disconsolate Jugheads.
Since 1945, Cos Cob TV & Audio has bedecked dens and desktops with an array of electronic goodies and digital delights. An authorized Apple reseller, the gadget sanctuary supplies Mac mavens with a variety of devices at the same prices as the Apple Store with the intimate service and fewer riddle-uttering mall gnomes of a smaller retailer. The petite iPod shuffle ($49.99) makes for bite-sized beat consumption, and the Apple TV ($99.99) delivers downloaded music, movies, and exhilarating C-SPAN reruns straight to television screens. A selection of cases, such as the Speck notebook sleeve ($35.95) and the Speck iPhone case ($35.95), also guards Apple contraptions against debris and damage.
The chief yoga instructors on a staff of dozens, Gina Norman and Stan Woodman aren’t your average couple—or even your average yoga studio owners. A world traveler with a longtime interest in mind-body work, Gina followed her path to Thailand, where she learned the local yoga practice, and then to India, where she studied up on vipassana meditation. Prior to opening Kaia Yoga Complete Wellness Center, Stan was a snowboarding addict and decades-long yoga practitioner living in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Today, the two strive to offer “a yoga for everyone,” with a lineup that includes smooth Vinyasa practice, disciplined Ashtanga poses, hot yoga in a 95-degree studio, and family-friendly fitness classes. After working up a sweat exercising or reciting Ulysses in one of the studio’s classes, students can take the heat off with soothing, natural spa services such as massages, body scrubs, and energy healing. With a long menu of pampering therapies, no aspect of the body leaves Kaia wanting for its own treatment, and the onsite vegetarian café’s baked goods, wraps, juices, and smoothies help guests with the other kind of bodily nourishment.
