After spending years as a salesman for top mattress lines, Steve Shore needed a new mattress himself. Rather than opt for a steep employee discount on one of the mattresses he sold, the enterprising Mr. Shore collected various natural materials and had them assembled into a mattress that met his exacting specifications: a comfy sleep cushion made with no potentially toxic components. The result was such an improvement over the big-name mattresses he sold that Mr. Shore and his son eventually decided to produce a line of organic mattresses based on the prototype, on which Mr. Shore slept soundly for more than a decade. Now, the Shore men sell their mattresses under the Eco-Cloud name in The Natural Mattress Store. Made from high-quality steel coils topped with natural latex, Eco-Cloud mattresses resist accumulating allergens and nightmare blueprints and retain their shape and support for years. Organic wool and cotton covers help keep sleepers cool and snug in bed by deflecting body heat and wicking away moisture. Each Eco-Cloud mattress comes with a 12-year, nonprorated warranty. In addition to the Eco-Cloud line, The Natural Mattress Store carries more than 20 organic mattresses, as well as eco-friendly, solid wood bedroom furniture from Pacific Rim Woodworking, Bedworks of Maine, and Vermont Furniture Designs.

Nestled in the Santa Cruz Mountains, this wooded retreat provides fresh holiday décor for families of festivity-seekers.

Then, fell your coniferous fellow with the provided folding saw. Patchen's cheery staff will assist with any necessary tree wrangling, bundling, and car loading to safely transport your topiary, and even provide a water stand to nourish your arboreal adoptee. Patchen California’s Old Summit Road location also boasts a collection of wreaths, fresh holly, and mistletoe in its Christmas boutique. Unlike wilted pre-cut options or notoriously fickle hedges, forest-fresh trees will retain their needles, woodsy scent, and pine-powered good cheer throughout the holiday season.

In many ways, The Wooden Horse is exactly the same as it was when it opened in 1971: a homespun, neighborhood toy store packed with all the latest gadgets, games, and boredom-trumping trinkets. But some might call the Los Gatos shop old-fashioned?and that's just fine. Visitors step back in time when they step into The Wooden Horse, even if the inventory reflects the interests of modern-day kids. The award-winning store's products run the gamut from brain-bending puzzles and science toys to arts, crafts, and building materials for do-it-yourselfers. There are toys for toddlers, pre-schoolers, and even older kids, plus products the entire family can enjoy so they don't have to tie their shoelaces together just to remain close.
