For more than 40 years, the culinary experts at Kitchen Gadgets and Beyond have supplied supermarkets and restaurants with gourmet-quality ingredients, cookware, and equipment. They've even designed supermarkets and commercial kitchens. Eventually, members of the public took notice and, spatulas raised threateningly above their heads, demanded access to the 10,000-square-foot show rooms.
Today, both professionals and avid home chefs browse the emporium, daydreams of pasta and baked goods dancing in their heads as they meander through rows of cutlery, bakeware, and small kitchen appliances.
Framed, which was named runner-up for Best Frame Shop in 2010 by readers of the New Haven Advocate, uses careful custom-framing techniques to produce well-balanced rectangles for all occasions. Overseen by 15-year framing veterans Liz Hellwig and Rocco Compitello, the staff at Framed meets with prospective project doers, ironing out the two-dimensional details for projects large and small. These canvas wranglers practice conservation framing, a technique that keeps pieces true to their original condition through the use of specialized glass and acid-free mat boards. Likewise, to ensure quality and a pleasant lack of presidential apparitions, all custom projects are constructed on-site, in the store's comprehensive workshop. Though framing rates vary from project to project, an average 18"x24" piece—including black wood frame, standard glass, and dry mounting—starts at approximately $66.

To say that Renewal by Andersen has high standards for its window installers might be an understatement. For the chance to even apply for the position, an installer must have replaced at least 5,000 windows. And when this prospective technician is considered for employment, there's still only a one in three chance he or she will even be hired. Once they finally make the cut, that lucky third of installers are EPA certified in lead safety, and they refresh their skills with another 40 training hours each year.
When homeowners put out their broken-or-ugly-window distress signal, the technicians respond with a varied selection of window and door options. They do so swiftly—each Andersen crew averages 1,000 replacements per year. And the installers' meticulous nature and attention to detail don't end when they pop in that final pane. After they've replaced the window, they clean up with an industrial vacuum estimated to be 47% more efficient than a typical home vac. Only when a homeowner goes through a 10-point inspection checklist with the team leader, and signs off on the cleanup, does Andersen consider its job done.
