The adroit art instructors at The Clayhouse unearth inner artists of all ages and experience levels with illuminating acrylic-painting curricula. Adults, teenagers, and children fabricate colorful compositions during two-hour sessions, projecting their innermost emotions of love, happiness, and hatred of airport-security lines onto conveniently blank canvases. A capable creative director oversees classes and arms students with all the necessary masterpiece-melding paintbrushes and tools. As students work, background music fills the room, acting as a source of inspiration that's both gentler and safer than traditional art-enhancing techniques such as starving or experimenting with espresso-bean trail mixes.

Over the course of 20 years, family-operated Just Like New has inspected apparel, accessories, and home furnishings from thousands of consigners, accepting only the pieces that meet strict quality and style standards. At the start of each fashion season, the family treks to New York City to gather enough designer duds to restock two 5,000-square-foot locations. Clothing, shoes, and accessories by classic brands such as Coach and Ann Taylor adorn shelves and keep mannequins from being charged with public indecency, and a children's section outfits youngsters in apparel purchased exclusively from catalog brands and specialty stores. Just Like New's jewelry selection glitters with 14-karat gold and sterling silver; vintage and costume jewelry occasionally makes the cut by way of jingling the shop owners' favorite songs. Vintage glassware, furniture, and artwork make unique design accents for the home.

Revival Home helps customers invigorate rooms with vintage furniture items and gently used designer pieces by Baker, Ralph Lauren, and Kate Spade. Owner Arlene opened Revival Home in the summer of 2009 during an economic recession in hopes of equipping shoppers with high-quality homewares for reasonable prices. Using her background in art direction, she hand selects each item from estate sales in the Hamptons to populate her recently renovated 10,000-square-foot show room with antique flatware, china sets, and ottomans. Because Revival Home relies on consignment goods, its stock rotates daily, providing shoppers with new antique lamps to check for genies on each visit.

Tool Consignment accommodates craftsmen with quality new and used implements to ease the completion of any project, be it a woodworking, metalworking, electrical, landscaping, or plumbing pursuit. Search for leaks around under-sink nooks or retrieve runaway bolts from hard-to-reach crannies with a telescoping mini light and magnetic pickup ($9.99). A stainless-steel dishwasher hose with elbow joints ($12.99) can connect a favorite kitchen appliance to the proper piping, while a Blackhawk open-ended wrench ($17.50) makes for a formidable opponent against loose nuts. Tool Consignment’s inventory, like the fashion trends in a chameleon colony, is continually changing, and each item comes with a 14-day guarantee.

Founded a quarter-century ago by Jeniene Ferguson and named after her mother, Lady Olga’s decks bodies in blush-worthy underduds from the likes of Spanx, Oscar de la Renta, and Mystree. Panties, nightgowns, and bras—ranging from size 30AA to 52J—line the store’s lace-laden aisles, which boast hard-to-find styles and sizes.

Complimentary bra fittings cater to each customer’s individual body type, including those who have undergone or are about to undergo breast surgery, resulting in a form-fitting brassiere that won’t cause discomfort or sporadically morph into a neoclassical corset. Pocketed bras, prostheses, and mastectomy swimsuits round out the store’s special-needs selection, and all items, including chemises, robes, and accessories, can be gift-wrapped or special ordered at no additional cost.
