The Schatzley family has been designing, repairing, and appraising jewelry for more than three decades. Jack Schatzley's IRS- and court-approved appraising skills (typically $65 for the first item and $35 for each additional item) make the studio a sparkling choice for treasure-exams. Renee Schatzley's custom-jewelry talents—mined by bauble-fans who wish to give one-of-a-kind engagement rings or design their own pendants—give her a shimmering backbone of design skills. Services include fixing broken chains, resetting diamonds, resizing finger trinkets, and reconstructing rings that have been mangled during games of monster-truck pattycake. Schatzley's recutting service wicks chips and scratches off of gems, using the offending flaws and excess gem powder as glitter in high-quality children's craft projects.
School Matters helps students at Toledo Public Schools and Toledo charter schools assemble a new outfit or uniform from an inventory of decorous clothes for boys, girls, and 10-year-old headmasters. For gents, crisp Dickies pair nicely with polos and sweater vests, whereas girls can round out their own navy cardigans with brown plaid skirts or slacks. Jackets featuring characters such as Spongebob and Disney princesses add a touch of whimsy to the classic ensembles.
At each Lover's Lane location, a team of romance specialists busies itself with increasing the chemistry between partners. The process requires a few key ingredients—a non-intimidating atmosphere, a broad knowledge of the shop's erotic wares, and most importantly, a playful and creative approach to intimacy. This fun approach is what keeps the store stocked with such a wide variety of items, from enticing lingerie sets available in petite and full-figure sizes to Kama Sutra massage oils.
In order to ensure customers feel completely comfortable, the lingerie and costumes are separated from the adult toys. The apparel side of the store turns into a holiday hotspot filled with romantic seasonal styles. The other side features such items as luxury massagers from Lelo and California Exotic Novelties and Lover's Kits, which package several products into a single purchase. The Perfect Seduction kit, for example, includes a silk blindfold, rose petals, and a singing gondolier.

Earrings catch eyes and ear holes alike; pendants and rings round out the adornment potentialities.
Though Macy's is primarily known for its clothing and home decor, the renowned department store is just as adept at feeding its customers as it is at fashionably clothing them.

Lighter plates, such as chopped salads and turkey sandwiches, are served up alongside favorites including grilled burgers and Alaskan cod and chips. Hearty, homestyle entrees of oven-baked meatloaf, chicken pot pie, and macaroni and cheese complete the menu.
