Banner's Hallmark hosts unique gifts and Hallmark greeting cards that creatively accent any holiday or special occasion. In the absence of sufficient stashes of construction paper for homemade coupon books, offspring can bestow upon hard-working patriarchs a puzzle-themed photo card personalized with an ingratiating image of the family ($3.49). Assorted gifts include décolleté-decorating jewelry, such as DaVinci beads ($6.99 each), and a library of recordable storybooks ($29.95 each). In the home-goods department, comely chalices provide sturdier drinking alternatives to sippy cups and wineskins made out of swiss cheese. Prices and selection may vary based on location.
The art-preservation specialists at Adler's Art & Frame furnish masterpiece-seekers and magnum-opus owners with high-quality framed artwork and framing services. Garnish your wall with the snow-sprinkled front lawn of the nation's most famous house with Rod Chase's piece America's Home ($60+), or commemorate your favorite equine barbershop quartet with a picture of Nancy Glazier's Amazing Grays III ($60+), a glimpse of four horses posing in a field for their eponymous album cover. Prices for framing services depend on the size of the artwork and the apparatuses used. Bestow borders upon your favorite family portrait or your cat's kindergarten report card with an 8"x10" custom framing ($88), which includes one mat, conservation glass, and frame, or add another mat for extra memory conservation ($113).
Since 1996, A La Carte Limousine's professional chauffeurs have chartered a fleet of gleaming limousines, luxury sedans, party buses, and other vehicles that make travel a luxury. All of the drivers have passed drug tests, aced rigorous examinations, and bonded with their vehicles over candlelit dinners in the garage. With such high standards to maintain, they keep a professional attitude whether they're picking up corporate passengers, making airport runs, or leading winery tours through the countryside.
Passengers can choose from vehicles including stretch limousines with wraparound seating and roomy SUVs. Also in the mix are party buses wired to play movies and music as passengers swing 'round the dance pole beneath a mirrored ceiling.
Scott Nash started MOM's Organic Market in his mom's garage. He repurposed the space as a warehouse for organic goods, dispatching orders to local buyers. When he outgrew the space, he rented an actual warehouse, and then a bigger one, eventually outgrowing the home-delivery business and replacing it with a retail outlet. From there, the business mushroomed like a naturally grown, pesticide-free mushroom—it now maintains 10 retail locations across Maryland and Virginia. Each location subscribes to a single mission—to protect and restore the environment. Store managers stock organic and local products whenever possible, and reduce waste by minimizing packaging. To power their stores, they call upon natural energy sources, such as wind and the earth's molten core. As an added benefit, they buy in bulk to keep prices low and author recipes that transform organic produce into delicious meals.
