Perched conveniently in the picturesque downtown square, Twisted Label boasts a spirited hodgepodge of apparel and accoutrements, both unworn and previously draped across mod bods. The eclectic emporium outfits men, women, children, and expectant mothers with a myriad of popular brands, such as American Eagle, Ralph Lauren Polo, Converse, and Guess. Like a fashion-forward merry-go-round, attire rotates on a regular basis, though dapper dud discoverers can peruse pairs of adult shoes in various heel lengths and hues ($6 on average), women's shirts of the pullover or button-up variety ($7 on average), men's pants for formal and casual occasions ($7 on average), and children's and babies' garments ideal for backyard play dates and executive board meetings ($5 on average).

Or flaunt a faux flower ring to confuse pollinating honeybees with its brightly baubled petals.
Trained motor-buggy technicians at Thomasville Toyota examine and purify foreign and domestic vehicles during the one-hour 19-point inspection, which includes an air-conditioner sanitizer. Fluids such as power-steering, coolant, differential, transmission, brake master cylinder, and windshield-washer wait patiently for an inspection and the cool kiss of a liquid top-off, and air filters, exhaust systems, and hoses are inspected by a magnifying glass on reprieve from the doldrums of ant observing in the sun. Rubber wheels are then investigated for rough wear, and tire pressure is checked and adjusted to appropriate levels. Rid jalopies of mold, pollen, dust, and other floating particles with the air-conditioner sanitizer, and ensure that cars are allergen-free and smell as fresh as laundry that's been drying in a perpetual wind tunnel.
