Ulysses and Florence Cleveland opened their first flower shop in Toulminville, selling arrangements and seeds to locals in 1948. Five decades and three generations later, the flower shop may have moved but its dedication to fresh florals and greenery remains strong. Cleveland Florist showcases a variety of imported flowers, arranged into colorful bouquets to celebrate weddings, birthdays, and births. Clients can have a pitcher of yellow roses delivered to a sweetheart or send a spray of pink buds to express sympathy for a lost loved one. The shop makes every effort to bring these flowers into people's everyday lives from creating displays at the local library to hosting a segment on how to create a holiday centerpiece on the Rachel Ray show.
Southern Art & Framing offers much more than its name implies—aside from custom-framing projects and ready-to-hang art, the store also boasts an eclectic gift shop stocked with goods made by local and national artisans. Shoppers can peruse a selection that includes everything from handbags and scented candles to barbecue tools and home decor designed for fans of popular college sports teams. Local artists also host onsite art classes, teaching skills such as impressionist painting and converting your boring sedan into an exciting police cruiser.
Every four to five weeks, Improv Comedy Underground puts on an unscripted, interactive show filled with spontaneous jokes and side-tickling chortles. Each show consists of a group of improvisational performers who participate in a series of wit-testing games led by a host and audience suggestions. Because of the on-the-fly nature of the hour-long shows, the content isn't always predictable and may contain adult language and humor, so it's not recommended for young children or stoic philosophers in the midst of vision quests.
