Though many things have changed on Main Street in Newark, Grassroots Handcrafts has remained an institution. The store, which sells a wide range of specialty gifts, such as bath and body products, candles, women’s apparel, kids’ novelty toys, and home decor, has been in business since 1975. It’s still operated by Marilyn Dickey, who gets help from her two daughters, Kristin and Joanna. Delaware Today gave a shout-out to the store, calling its wares “funky, fun, and unusual.”

Spa Bellezza has its share of inventive beauty treatments, sure. But it's something called whine therapy that stands out—clients bring a friend, munch on finger foods, sip a glass of wine, and engage in "some soul-felt girl talk." With her masters degrees in psychology and certification as a senior cosmetologist, spa owner Carla knows what she's doing when she organizes events such as these. The community-conscious grandmother earned a degree as a registered nurse and as a licensed cosmetologist as well, backgrounds she distills into organizing two-hour spa parties for girls. Carla and her staff also focus on individual services. Vanilla, avocado, sugar, and an array of aromatherapy oils comprise the recipes for Spa Bellezza's body treatments. And, a selection of products by Essie, OPI, L.A. Colors, and more attests to the staff's discerning tastes. Facials, mani-pedis, and massages all attract clients to the spa like moths to a hot rod's flames.
