Flung from the concert stage by the drummer of T-Rex, a single drumstick caught by eighth grader Donn Bennett began a lifelong passion for collecting rare and celebrity drum sets. He began selling and trading equipment from his home, and eventually his constantly expanding collection prompted him to open his own shop in 1977. Today, as recorded by King 5 Magazine, more than 50 signed snares hang from the store's ceiling above a show room circled by 15 sets previously used by drummers from bands such as Green Day, Aerosmith, Kansas, and Cheap Trick. Snares played by The Who's Keith Moon and Kiss' Peter Criss, a signed drumhead by The Beatles' Ringo Starr, and feline whiskers fashioned into drumsticks by Josie and the Pussycats round out Donn's extensive exhibit.

Along with the displayed celeb drums, Donn dispenses new and used drum gear to customers along with vintage snare parts and major-brand replacement parts for sets in need of repair. Stocked with two professional drum sets and a Roland electronic drum tutor, soundproof learning rooms shelter pupils and instructors during private 30- or 60-minute lessons for all skill levels. Along with annual rock camps and clinics, Donn's staff leads specialized classes in diverse drumming topics such as mastering the techniques of Led Zeppelin's John Bonham and the cymbal-smacking techniques of Animal from the Muppets.

When assembled correctly, a floral arrangement acts much like a poem. Each flower is a different verse, and together, the vibrant blooms convey messages of love, congratulations, or sympathy. The local florists at Finishing Touch Florist & Gifts make for excellent poets, each one fluent in a centriels-old floral vocabulary. Whenever a customer steps into their shop looking to celebrate an anniversary or a newborn child, the talented florists can deftly pullout a daisy, which represents innocence, a fern to express sincerity, or a rose, which of course conveys deep passion. The florists can arrange this last symbolic bloom into more than two dozen creations, with hues of red, pink, white, and other colors.

Once ready, these bouquets can add their fresh colors and scents to romantic evenings or perhaps even a wedding. However, sometimes the only reason to celebrate is a change in the seasons. Look to the shop's storefront window for a rotating lineup of flowers that herald the coming of spring, summer, winter, fall, and the secret fifth season only three people know about.

Richard Jamieson's childhood spent in his grandparent's log cabin had a strong influence on his career. It instills his pieces of hand-hewn furniture with a rustic, old-school aesthetic also displayed by the three NFL players who still wear a leather, facemaskless helmet. As a former USMC officer, renowned marksman, sawmill operator, and world traveler, the carpenter draws from a lifetime of adventure to create intricate latticework carvings and exotic monsoon wood.

As he shapes his materials into dinner tables, drawers, and bed posts, Jamieson animates an ecologically sustainable philosophy. He retrieves his wood from responsible sources such as salvaged teak, overshading mango trees, and invasive meh trees that overrun Javan rainforests without even offering to pay part of the rent. The designer infuses each piece with a masterful craftsmanship that can impart not only an artistic composition, but long-lasting solid wood construction. Jamieson adds strong dovetail joints and a 10-step hand-finishing process that protect the luxurious planks of tropical hardwood for years to come.
