  • Thompson's Frame Factory
    Dedicated to a next-day turnaround for many assignments, Thompson's encases everything from diplomas to completed jigsaw puzzles within the ornate borders of more than 2,000 customizable frames. Guests can also peruse a collection of 300 ready-made frames that will fit snugly around standard-size pictures, or commission custom tabletop frames to showcase unconventionally sized posters. More than 100 framed, beveled mirrors further populate the store, silently reflecting the reversed T-shirt graphics and snarky grins of each shopper's personal doppelgänger. Frames and mirrors are complemented by a collection of original oil paintings, which help homeowners adorn their walls with a colorful still life, a muted landscape, or an unflinchingly honest portrayal of the human condition.

  • Sips N Strokes
    Sips n Strokes gifts paintbrush-wielding neophytes the tools and confidence to create, with a mélange of masterpiece-making tutorials and a bring-your-own-beverage policy.

  • Night Owl Paper Goods
    Night Owl Paper Goods makes all of its modern yet folksy hand-crafted paper goods by hand from sustainably harvested wood, letterpress, or a hybrid of the two. The Pup with Leaves design ($6), for example, blends Night Owl's eco-friendly yellow birch cards with an aww-inducing hand-drawn illustration. Stock up for the traditional round of holiday cards and break-up letters to Santa with the Pine Penguin ($16 for box of six), or regale a moody teenaged girl with a broad range of journals, jotters, and other gifts. And Night Owl's many customizable cards give the vicariously creative a one-of-a-kind way to announce birthdays, births, bar mitzvahs; formal raves, or a button factory promotion to Assistant to the Regional Hole-Puncher.
