Since 1982, Town & Country Flowers & Gifts has been filling vases with fragrant bursts of color and making gift-giving easy with treats and home accessories. Bouquets such as the vibrant, multihued Make a Wish translate cheery statements into botanical displays, which can be picked up at the boutique, sent directly to recipients, or delivered to a variety of local hospitals and funeral homes. The shop stocks more than just flowers—morsels by South Bend Chocolate Company melt atop tongues, Village Candles accent homes with flickering flames, and Russ teddy bears offer an alternative to genuine grizzlies, whose wrapping-paper phobia makes them an impractical present.
Crestwoods Frame Shop and Gallery protects clients' cherished paintings and possessions and displays work from celebrated local and regional artists. The studio boasts more than 2,500 types of frames, paired with acid-free archival materials and UV glass to reduce fading. The staff also restores old photographs and provides crisp, professional digital printing services.
The staff at Wisman's Appliance Service has kept kitchens running smoothly with appliance sales, repairs, and parts since 1952. The shop carries a fleet of fridges, microwaves, and freezers by name brands such as Frigidaire, Maytag, GE, Amana, Whirlpool, and KitchenAid. In addition to new and used machines, they carry discounted "Scratch and Dent" models that garnered minor bruises while being shipped or accidentally used as a piñata.
Madeleines Bakehouse takes its inspiration from the French treat known as a madeleine—a shell-shaped cake with a buttery crust and sponge-like texture. Originating in the city of Commercy in the 18th century, madeleines earned their name when a girl named Madeleine baked a batch that made it to the mouth of Louis XV's wife, who shared them with a loveable stray who would later win the world's heart by starring in Homeward Bound. This deal gets you a dozen of these majestic pastries, superb for dunking into an afternoon tea or submerging into your backyard pool of chocolate. Madeleines Bakehouse uses local and organic eggs in all of its recipes—including banana bread, coffee cake, and chocolate bouchon—ensuring high levels of vitamins and a soft richness.
