Although Create a Frame / Handworks Gallery began as a designer framing store, works of art have wriggled their way off the walls and onto the shop floor, where 3-D pieces complement the flat compositions framers nestle beneath glass, mats, and moulding. Helmed by husband-and-wife team Wendy and Steven Denenberg for more than 30 years, the white custom-framing counter offsets a wall of frame samples from brands such as Adhisa and Roma, which encircle pieces of any size alongside flattering mats and glass to protect against passing impressionists. Tactile objets d'art dapple the rest of the gallery space with the colors of hand-hewn artisanal furniture, sparkling jewelry, and glass bowls, vases, and ceilings crafted by American and international artists.:m]]

The apparel experts at Prologue Services clean, freshen, and maintain wardrobes with their professional dry-cleaning and garment-preservation talents. Garment specialists gently clean hardworking wedding gowns that have been put through the Electric Slide wringer to prepare them for a well-deserved rest.
