The window dressers at Connecticut Shade and Blind have embellished bare panes with custom blinds, shades, and sumptuous draperies for more than a quarter century. Interior rooms exposed to overly enthusiastic sunbeams or binocular-bearing blue jays cover vulnerable windows with light filtering double-cell shades ($546 for a 36"x54" panel). The futuristic blinds are energy efficient, helping to defend against winter drafts and roasting summer suns. Wood blinds ($549 for a 36"x54" panel) or faux wood blinds ($413 for a 36"x54" panel) add texture and a touch of the outdoors to stylish interiors. A variety of fabrics in woven blends or ethereal sheers dress window interiors as curtains or human exteriors as stylish togas. Any accrued shipping costs are included in this Groupon.
For 18 years, foodies at For the Kitchen have stocked their shelves with premium pots, pans, cutlery, and kitchen accessories. Striving to stock items "customers will only have to buy once," shopkeepers source brands known for durability and high performance. All-Clad, Berndes, and Scanpan pots and pans quickly heat up meats, veggies, and frozen archeological artifacts atop the stove, and French-made Staub dutch ovens equipped with self-basting lids leave slow-cooked items tender and brimming with flavor. In addition to the big-ticket items, smaller kitchen accessories such as Microplane graters, cookie cutters, and vegetable peelers ease everyday cooking. Regardless of the size of the item they grab, shoppers can count on free gift-wrapping to make a present extra special or a utensil holder extra colorful.
In the fall of 2003, Bryan was working as a successful business analyst. He had a great job, had recently purchased his own house, and adopted his new best friend, Tuckerman. Bryan struggled leaving his 9-pound black-lab puppy at home when he went to work and grew weary of his unfulfilled search for a place with compassion, knowledge, and resources for him and his new pooch. Hoping to fill that gap in the community, Bryan opened Appalachian Tails Pet Company in 2005. He recruited staff members who matched his passion for pet care. Together, they opened a pet-nutrition center stocked with high-quality pet food backed by a satisfaction guarantee, toys and snacks for cats and dogs, and an aquatic center that houses African cichlids, fancy guppies, and misguided swedish fish. The pet-friendly facility, which houses more than 10,000 products, also stocks food, toys, and accessories for ferrets, hamsters, birds, and reptiles.

The careful collectors at Haddam Family Consignments cull gems of gently used upscale apparel, vintage and modern jewelry, and furniture to resell in their cozy shop. Items rotate regularly, but recent collections have included a Ralph Lauren blouse ($13.75) and a J. Crew sweater ($9.75) to keep appendages warm more fashionably than a sleeve made of insulation foam. Juicy Couture faux-fur hoodies ($69.95) and sleek Unik black leather motorcycle jackets ($55) for men and women preserve torsos against whipping winter winds and cool spring breezes. The store also houses a vast selection of goods, ranging from handbags and home décor to children's toys, books, and DVDs, for a collection of items more diverse than the participants at a snowflake convention.
