Museum Quality Framing’s staff encases cherished photos, artwork, and three-dimensional objects in materials ranging from polished wood to leather. Ready-made photo frames ($10+) clasp snapshots in a wood-and-glass embrace, protecting them from wrinkles, stains, and the scratchy nuzzles of sentimental lumberjacks. Lackluster walls can find colorful companionship in preframed artwork and a vehicle for deep self-reflection in mirrors ($100+). Ensconce valuables in custom framing packages ($69.99+), which can accommodate sports memorabilia, or preserve fine art with archival mats and backing boards. Handcrafted frames add a Renaissance flair to photos, utilizing materials such as 22-karat gold leaf to create one-of-a-kind frames.
Avoid the industrial grapevine by putting winery work into your own grape-mashing hands. No specialized training is necessary to detect the quality and sophistication of Classic Winemakers' hand-inspected and hand-selected elements. Browse a nursery of ingredients in the pre-wine stage before the helpful winery staff ties its hands behind its back while guiding your hands through verbal and foot-signed instruction. In the kitchen, you'll mix a touch of A with a splash of B. Though, as every connoisseur knows, the answer to fine wine is always C, the yeast. Those who have never pitched eukaryotic microorganisms will discover the simplistic joy of bringing their creation some life.
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.
On average, the designers at Beard's Framing boast eight years of experience. Most of them come from backgrounds in art or photography, but all of them are passionate about creating frames to match their clients' personal style, décor, and artwork. It's that dedication that has helped Beard's blossom from a single shop to the eight stores within in the Northwest area. Several times throughout the year, the staff updates Beard's inventory to keep up with the latest design trends in furniture and home décor. This ensures their frames are stylish, but that doesn't mean they're not built to last, unlike constitutions written in disappearing ink. They stand behind the quality of their hand-crafted frames with a lifetime guarantee; and if you don't like your creation within 30 days, they will reframe it.
Though you can customize a cup of frozen yogurt every day of the week at Twisties Frozen Yogurt, something special happens on Wednesdays.

This includes swirls of pistachio or cake-batter frozen yogurt, as well as fresh fruits and candies from the toppings bar. In addition to the constantly rotating stable of yogurts, these waffles help make the shop a popular pit stop for dessert any time of year—even those secret days that are only shown on congressional calendars.
