A family-owned business of 11 years, Lockwood Farms blossoms with an ever-metamorphosing selection of plants and flowers. Owners Randi and Mark bustle around the garden center each day, overseeing the staff and offering assistance and gardening counsel to customers. Their gardens house more than 40 types of vegetables and herbs along with an eclectic mix of flowers, trees, and shrubs. An extensive selection of birdbaths, fountains, and pottery punctuates the grounds, and an onsite three-story gift shop stocks collectibles and decor from designers such as Jim Shore, Heritage Lace, and Willow Tree. The center's florists also snip fresh flowers into custom bouquets for a variety of occasions ranging from anniversary celebrations to birthdays.
Even though their brains brim with creative hair ideas, the stylists at Scissors Edge Salon resist applying scissors to hair until they’ve had a thorough consultation with each client. Once they’ve learned all they can about the client’s wishes and sense of style, they set to work updating looks with precision cuts, texturing services, and Wella professional color products. While the staff perform cuts, facials, and manicures, they attend to client comfort with complimentary beverages, snacks, and wine.
It is not difficult to find NJ Mattress Factory—simply look for a showroom with rows of blanket-less beds. Once there, you will see sewn onto bare mattresses patches with the names Sealy, Serta, Stearns & Foster, Simmons Beautyrest, and Tempur-Pedic, a who’s who of mattress brands the store is authorized to sell. Any questions can be directed to the seasoned staff, whether they are about mattresses or the shop’s bedding accessories, which include Tempur-Pedic pillows and mattress pads that can fend off water, microbes, allergens, and that one nightmare where you are forced to stuff your mattress into an airplane’s overhead compartment.
