Family-owned and operated Frances Flower Shop sells flowers and gifts for all occasions from its cozy and non-presidential white house. Its large inventory of fresh flowers and plants can be arranged to suit most any gift-giving need—thank a friend for years of loyalty and good times, or just make your parole officer smile. The Belafonte-bounty of the Calypso ($45.95) boasts blooms in tropical pinks, oranges, blues, and yellows, while fast-to-act floral fanatics can opt for the high-flying Halloween horticulture of the Bat's Incredible ($34.95). Specialized bouquets honoring anniversaries, births, and birthdays are available, as is a wide array of gourmet fruit and gift baskets, greeting cards, and candle.
The innovative design team at Closet Factory collaborates with customers' personal spaces and needs to sculpt artful storage solutions for closets, garages, pantries, and offices. During each complementary in-home consultation, designers spend 60–90 minutes exploring wardrobe-dominated spaces with homeowners while offering suggestions, noting individual concerns, and avoiding the gaze of territorial sweaters. After designers and customers decide on an ideal solution, Closet Factory's craftsmen cut and assemble each custom piece in a local workshop to ensure a clean and efficient installation process. As with all custom work, the cost of each storage solution will vary depending on materials, labor, and preference for monogrammed closet doors.
