Using ingredients that are certified Kosher and organic, Green Apple Foods NY creates gourmet variants of classic fairground treats. Staff members pop kettle corn and popcorn fresh daily, in flavors such as jalapeño sea salt or cinnamon toast. Candy apples don toppings such as toasted coconut or s'mores marshmallows, which disguise them from vengeful apple trees looking to reclaim their lost offspring. All popcorn, cotton candy, and candy apples are handmade in a facility free of peanuts, without any trans fats. Green Apple Foods NY also partners with McBride Farms in Long Island to supply shoppers or lonesome salads with crisp, seasonal produce.
The proprietor of Say It In Thread began sewing at the age of 13, eventually graduating from the famed Fashion Institute of Technology. But it wasn't until she became a mom herself that she figured out how to support her little family with what she loved to do. In 1989, she began by embroidering baby gifts. Today, she crafts custom gifts, from pattern to hemming, embroidering each one to make it one of a kind. Customers can choose from a range of gifts, robes and towels, laundry bags and duffel bags, and throws and baby blankets. Each one is personalized with bright-colored thread, with the recipient's initials or name, and even a clever graphic such as baseballs for the sports fan, flowers for a gardener, or an adding machine for someone who likes things that tick.
The Spa 25 welcomes visitors for a quiet and relaxing retreat from the hectic outside world. In the elegant spa, staffers beautify each area of the body, waxing away excess hair, applying facials to remove dead skin, and giving muscles a melting massage to complement intense workouts. The hydrating foot treatment brings spring to the step, and the full-body polish treatment exfoliates customers from head to toe and buffs in a coat of hydration cream to dramatically increase their Blue Book resale value.
The professional photographers at Target Portrait Studios capture paramount moments in premier lighting with high-tech digital cameras and a choice of vivid background images. After clients discuss pose preferences with their portraitist, subjects take the stage for approximately 10 minutes of flashing bulbs, bright smiles, and focused lenses. Clients are welcome to bring props and shadow puppets from home, and after choosing a background, they can further customize each image with one of the studio's props, if desired.
