Anthony Shane Florist specializes in traditional arrangements such as a dozen ruby-red Valentine's Day roses ($69) or a bouquet of white roses and lilies ($66). But the florists' freakish green thumbs also makes them quite skilled at European dish gardens, high-style arrangements, silk flowers, funeral designs, dried flowers, and tropicals. As such, you can put a Jimmy Buffett spin on this year's Valentine with the Paradise Found, an arrangement of Asiatic lilies and alstroemeria dotted with birds of paradise in a square black container ($60.95). For something less austere, cheer up the dinner table with a glass bowl of white daisies and solidago ($47.95).

Just beyond the milky-blue and raspberry hues of its flowerbox-adorned storefront, Sewtropolis nurtures constant creativity with sewing workshops and do-it-yourself sewing stations. A self-taught sewist, owner Nikol Gianopoulos often teaches stitching techniques and threading essentials while her students assemble their own skirts, blouses, and quilts. Instructors Laura, Raina, and Annie also share their personal styles with children and adults while transforming elaborate fabrics and yarns into functional artwork. For personal projects, the shop carries sewing and quilting patterns from Amy Butler, Heather Bailey, Colette Patterns, and Tula Pink. A series of sewing machines, sergers, and cutting spaces are available for rent by the hour, and stacks of colorful bolts inspire creativity along with the shop dog Skilos, whose trusting gaze often convinces sewists to craft elaborate doggie mansions.
Kitchen Window, much like an extravagant meal, is the product of combining simple ingredients with elaborate culinary techniques. The original store was no more than 1,200 square feet, containing a small demonstration kitchen and modest, yet high-quality, collection of kitchen utensils. The staff's dedication to their craft brought customers through the doors, and as word grew of the shop, so too did its offerings; small demonstrations became cooking classes and the stock of cooking equipment grew. Today, Kitchen Window spans 20,000 square feet of space, which contains not only 16,000 products and two cooking-demo stations, but also an outdoor classroom with more than 20 grills where students can practice preparing steak and marshmallows. Instructors inside the cooking school lead dozens of culinary sessions, from basic knife-skills classes to deep-dish baking sessions and grilling expos.
