A rainbow of men's and women's apparel and accessories populates the forest of racks inside Arizona Trading Company, where staffers buy, sell, and trade a thoughtfully curated, ever-revolving stash of gently used threads. They take in modern and vintage attire alike, scrutinizing each item to ensure that no evidence remains of the superhero who previously owned it. Handbags, shoes, and Pendleton flannels neighbor household gear, jackets, and seasonal inventory throughout the fully stocked shop. A smattering of brand-new accouterments, such as sunglasses and jewelry, interrupts the vast spread of lightly worn attire.
Josie Kern, Artistic Photography's experienced shutterbug, harnesses her years of snapping photos at fashion shows and special events to expertly capture client portraits in her hometown, chalet-style studio. Single models or groups of up to eight people can strike visually pleasing poses in a prompted 60-minute photo session, as Josie immortalizes group hugs, catwalk stances, and yarn-chasing prowess. After the photo shoot, clients sit down with Josie to choose their favorite frame and receive the selected image on an 8"x10" print, with additional prints available for $10 apiece. Josie's attention to detail, eye for powerful imagery, and ability to juggle five flaming cameras has gained her work both locally and abroad, including gracing the cover of Yoga Magazine.

We have been pouring candles since 1992 and loving every minute of it. Being self-taught, we use the wrong wax, wrong wick, WAY too much fragrance and it all works together in harmony to create the most fragrant, clean, happy candle you could ever find!
