Recipient of the Governor's Award for Pollution Prevention and Sustainable Practices, Corry's CO2 Dry Cleaning reanimates slumping shirts and sagging slacks with chemical- and odor-free jolts of revivifying carbon dioxide. Banishing noxious solvents to the dustbin of dry-cleaning history, Corry's sends limp linens for a gentle tumble in cleaning drums that are packed with pressurized carbon dioxide, best known for its work as a soft-drink bubble bolsterer and chief rocket propellant of mouse space programs. Corry's saves soiled shirts and blouses ($6.50 each), dilapidated suits ($13.25+), dusty dusters ($18.95), and more, leaving well-rested apparel ready to accept new wear or a dashing tuxedo's invitation to closet prom.
Although most chefs have their own unique style of peeling, dicing, and julienning veggies, they all have one thing in common: they each require precise, sharp knives. At Excalibur Cutlery and Gifts, the staff ensures that tools remain as close to their factory condition as possible. During sharpening services, a water-cooled belt system and buffing wheels restore a piercing blade while removing a minimal amount of steel. They can sharpen kitchen, pocket, and hunting knives, as well as dull scissors and razors.
The shop also stocks premium models of nearly every edge they sharpen. The cutlery department stocks German-made Wusthof and Henckels, Swiss-made Forschner, and Oregon-grown Kershaw knives. Ideal for camping trips, pocket knives come in both blade and multitool varieties. More genteel wares include manicure sets and old-fashioned shaving kits. Excalibur also boasts a collection of swords for the collector or CEO whose business suit needs extra panache.
