After spending years designing kitchens and handcrafting cabinets, John Barlowe opened Frame Shop Art Gallery & Gifts to celebrate and showcase great household art. A member of the Professional Picture Framers Association, he's won awards for his custom-frame designs, which pair his meticulous woodworking skills with elements such as football skin to accent displayed pieces. As a premier partner of Larson-Juhl, he has access to thousands of ornate American hardwood borders and gilded moldings crafted with more than 100 years of company expertise. Each artwork or photograph squeezes between Tru Vue glass and Bainbridge mats and backboard, a sandwich framers can often complete in as little as 24 hours.

In addition to displaying art, John and his team specialize in various photo services, from printing images to transforming ordinary snapshots into caricatures or watercolors with artistic photo treatments. They also prevent boxes of family photos from falling victim to age, disasters, and swamp monsters’ thumbprints by digitizing large collections.

The Butterfly House fills its lush indoor botanical garden with more than a thousand butterflies, creating a tranquil and meditative space for guests to relax and take in the wonderful natural variety present in a single order of organisms. Representing diverse species from the Americas and Asia, this well-traveled population of lepidopterans likes to flutter about, sipping nectar and basking in the sun, much like revelers at an international beach party. Since butterflies live for a fleeting two to three weeks, the facility brings in more creatures and new species regularly, making each visit unique. The knowledgeable staff helps patrons learn about every stage of this magnificent creature’s life cycle, from its awkward pupa days to the search for a mate and, in twilight, retirement from its professional nectar-collecting career to pursue a nectar-collecting hobby.

Prism GlassWorks is a full-service silica studio offering a wide range of elegant pre-made glass pieces, as well as hands-on classes and workshops for students of all experience levels. As a sneak peak of their regular fused-glass pendant classes—and with Groupon fun-seekers specifically in mind—the Prism proprietors have put together a special fused pendant-making workshop (many convenient times are available). During the two-hour session, you'll get to carry your innermost designs and aesthetic impulses to fruition, whether they are abstract conglomerations of color or miniature images of a beloved filing cabinet. After hand-selecting and combining glass noodles, stringers, and dichroic thingamabobs, you'll have created a raw pendant that's ready for the finishing flames of the kiln.
