The Blue Moon Trading Company compiles one-of-a-kind vintage and consignment furniture. Each individually priced chair, table, and cowhide-covered stool adds detail to homes, building personality-infused rooms out of repurposed items just as a lonely boy builds friends out of repurposed mason jars. Speckle a dining room with medium-size poured candles ($19 each or $35 for two) or stun dinner guests with one of Blue Moon’s studio-crafted salvaged heart-of-pine dining tables ($1,295). Dens displaying the regal alabaster caned chair ($45) beside the vintage 1950s watercolor of boats on turquoise water ($65) create a welcome room if Poseidon stops by while road-tripping. The store's regular shop-and-sip events allow shoppers to enjoy sips of champagne alongside eye-filling spreads of wares.
With thousands of frame and mat samples, The Great Frame Up can satisfy any and all framing fantasies. The expert framespeople can make diplomas radiate (most diplomas can be framed for around $100–$200), personalized jerseys glisten (most for less than $300), and dorm-room movie posters sparkle (many 24" x 36" pieces are less than $100). The design wizards can also find a home for any prized possession, such as shoebox photos, baby booties, ticket stubs, medals, and really good pot roasts. The Great Frame Up’s no-hassle guarantee and assurance that all work is done on-site means your frameables won't be subject to mistreatment at underground commercial framing facilities.

The all-female staff at Milagros, who proudly believe in “long, hot baths” and high-quality ingredients, routinely handcraft half-pound bars of Sister Agnes soap from glycerin, a natural humectant that deftly draws moisture and magnets to the skin. Their selection of soaps evokes innumerable essences, from the intoxicating musk of a wine cellar to the homespun nostalgia of the linen closet. The friendly instructors happily impart their squeaky-clean art to budding soapsmiths, teaching them to create with a variety of shapes, colors, and scents during 90-minute classes.
