For more than 38 years, Light 'n Leisure "The Purple Buildings" has brightened abodes with high-quality, stylish lighting fixtures and home accents. Customers perusing one of three showrooms can gape at a plethora of fixtures, from interior enhancers such as the duchess antique nickel sconce ($80) to outdoor darkness repellers such as a nautical textured black wall mount ($69.99). Other fixtures, including ceiling lights, lamps, and wall lights, are also available to help send monsters into hiding and stem the tide of toe-stubbing epidemics. An array of home accents such as candle holders, decorative boxes, and vases is available for outfitting newly illuminated rooms with an eye-friendly wardrobe, and an in-store bonanza of clearance items augments the selection of domicile dressings.
For the past 87 years, Weston Nurseries has provided garden goods and services through good days, bad days, and days of triffids. If your plant expertise doesn't even go back 87 seconds, Weston's staff of friendly, knowledgeable chlorophyll enthusiasts will happily guide potential green thumbs through a library of nearly 1,800 plants. Assorted perennials start at $8.95 and stand ready to be planted in fertile crescents throughout the Super Mario Brothers level you've built in your backyard. The less soil-inclined can gussy up a porch or balustrade with a hanging planter full of colorful annuals (starting at $32). Otherwise, sweeten summers with highbush blueberry cultivars ($36 for a #3 pot) or give the lily of the valley something to be jealous of with a Rose-of-Sharon ($36 for a #3 pot). Every gardener worth his or her pruning shears knows of the earth's constant craving for crustaceans, so feed its need with Coast of Maine Lobster Compost ($7.99 per one-cubic-foot bag). Gardening accessories are also plentiful; gear up with phalange-guarding West County women's garden gloves ($27.99) and an OXO 3L watering can ($19.99), to name just a few.
