Because bathing a dog at home can result in scratched bathtubs, clogged drains, and wet sofa cushions, Puppy Suds has set up a shop designed to eliminate all the hassle. At the grooming facility, pet owners walk their dogs into the self-washing bays before giving them gentle scrub downs. Shampoo, towels, brushes, and dryers are provided, along with knee-high mirrors that allow pets to admire their new looks.
Persnickety's skilled mane-master Maria Foust can snip, highlight, and charm the most distraught bristles, frizzies, and Medusa head-snakes. Maria senses your innermost hair-yearnings, then directs her careful scissors in tune with your thoughts and dreams, letting her creative forces flow wildly onto your scalp for a haircut, shampoo, and style ($45 for women, $25 for men, $15+ for kids) that revolutionizes the way you look in the mirror—inside and out. A highlighting service ($135) draws attention to a customer’s favorite strands, while back-talking fuzz may be made an example of with a waxing ($10+). Maria works with each client to customize his or her look, leaving patrons ready to receive unprompted compliments or have a yacht named in their honor.
Owned by Brett and Nan Lyles and their sons, Lyles Family Cleaners erases stains with dry-cleaning and laundering services performed by hand. Dry cleaning treatments eschew the use of water while rendering cashmere or silk dresses ($9.75) spotless and delicately handling wedding dresses ($75+) marred by the remains of grains of rice thrown overhand. Sweat marks and dirty spots vanish from men's dress shirts ($2.10) as they splash around in suds during the cleaners' laundry treatments. Alternately, comforter cleaning services rejuvenate king- ($35), queen- ($30), or twin-size ($25) blankets by removing stains and leaving fresh scents to replace any lingering, unexplained odor of pork rinds.
An outlandish dog outfit often includes a miniaturized sweater or a hastily attached pair of felt antlers. But at Diva Dog 2, pups can take their style statements further with swaths of bright-pink dyed hair, mohawks, or feathers. Stylists can shear and dye a pup’s mane into artful and eccentric designs inspired by a favorite film, image, or sports team. Along with artful grooming services, Diva Dog 2 carries posh goods for pampering one’s pup, including holistic foods, studded collars, and scented shampoos and cologne. Staff members can match canines with shiny bling or make personalized ID tags that owners may borrow before setting out on their bimonthly vision quest.
The craftsmen at both Image Gallery Frame Shops pour more than 20 years of experience into each piece as they crown artwork, family photos, and precious mementos with traditional and eco-friendly mouldings. They combine these frames—many of which are harvested from managed and sustainable forests—with acid-free archival mats and conservation-quality glass to ensure memories withstand the test of time. Upon request, they can also use nonreflective museum glass to keep portraits from being startled by their own reflections.
In addition to custom framing, artisans stretch canvases, display three-dimensional objects in shadow boxes, and repair broken frames. When they aren't working in the shop, framers travel to customers' homes to assist with design needs and custom mirrors. For those with bare walls, an online gallery provides access to more than 3,300 images, which can be printed on paper or canvas and shipped for free to either shop for framing.
