Experienced framers Barry Stahl and Bob Clayton built Big Picture Framing from scratch in 2000, holding meetings around an old card table as construction roared around them. Today, framers at 15 area locations craft custom frames to display artwork, photographs, and record sleeves, and shadow boxes protect three-dimensional items such as ballet slippers, macaroni art, or a swarm of wasps. Patrons can dictate all design choices, choosing from metal and wooden frames in a multitude of colors and styles, or ask for recommendations from one of Big Picture Framing's resident experts. Big Picture Framing also stocks pre-framed art, prints, and posters to spruce up bare-walled homes or a drab doghouse.

Alan J. Gardner opened his Salem factory in 1933, winning over generations of loyal customers with custom-made and odd-sized mattresses in a wide range of styles. Massachusetts-made pallets support sleepers with hand tufted construction and fluffy cotton fillings catered specifically to each client's specifications. The company's direct manufacturer-to-customer supply chain erases the influence of bothersome middlemen or arrogant, cigar-chomping mattress barons. Sleepers select from a variety of comfy cushion styles, such as latex, plush top, tufted, or pocket coils, with options for all-natural materials such as Joma wool and layers of thick cotton-knit fabric.

Founded in 1952 as a Massachusetts nonprofit for tire dealers and auto-service shops, the New England Tire and Service Association has maintained a level of excellence among all of its members for more than a half-century. Like a chamber of commerce, a professional association, NETSA ensures the quality of craftsmanship of its members and promotes its industry with annual trade shows. With a wealth of active members ranging from local tire merchants to service centers, NETSA boosts both masterful automotive-repair work and small businesses throughout the region. NETSA also supported the recently passed Right to Repair law, which requires manufacturers to provide repair information to vehicle owners and independent repairers. This allows customers to better choose who services their car.
