Open for more than 30 years, Betty’s Antiques dispenses a vast array of charming, ageless wares including furniture, collectibles, and vintage electronics. Treasure hunters can browse Betty's Antiques' 6,000 square feet of display space in search of a quaint home adornment or a wardrobe that doubles as a gateway into a parallel dimension. The varied selection features glimmering vintage jewelry ($2–$10) and an antique lamp ($24.50), perfect for resting on a desk near a window and illuminating an historic issue of Us Weekly. Furniture fanatics can walk away with a beveled glass mirror ($39.99) and an old wicker rocking chair ($89.99), and tech connoisseurs will adore the primitive radio ($39). Although not for sale, Betty's Antiques occupies a lovely and colorful storefront that can be admired for free.

One in, one out. This must be Curious Heart Emporium's policy for managing inventory. Colorful, handcrafted lawn sculptures seem to spill out from the yellow-and-green cottage, whose interior shelves are packed to capacity with artisan gifts and novelty pieces from across North America and Europe. Kathy Corley hand selects everything that guests see in her shop, including jewelry, greeting cards, and sarcastic wall art. Corley, who left her career in the film industry as an art director, likens the shop's character to "Willy Wonka's on steroids." When shopping around, Corley often gravitates toward items that remind her of her family members. For example, tin toys remind her of her father, and flamingo-inspired pieces represent her sister, who spent her third year of life standing on one foot. Corley also enjoys handcrafted and designer Christmas ornaments and trees, and dedicates an entire room in the store to them during the holidays. Throughout the spring and summer, her partially enclosed patio and lawn feature garden décor, including metal folk-art roosters and solar-powered paper lanterns.
Dedicated to craftsmanship, creativity, and conservation-quality materials, the framing experts at Picture Frame Warehouse protect the integrity of portraits and paintings with acid-free mats and UV-blocking glass. In addition to ready-made frames, the shop stocks more than 1,500 custom mouldings, with designs to complement any diploma or certificate of lunar land ownership. Most framing jobs are completed within one week, allowing patrons just enough time to peruse the store’s entire collection of photo frames and oil paintings.
For 50 years, the owners and staffers of Plaza Artist Materials & Picture Framing have encouraged the artists of their community. They visit local fairs and set up booths for kids to color and craft, and they do workshops, demos, and classes for artists of every age. As their name implies, they also outfit art makers of all skill levels with top-of-the-line materials, such as Gamblin oil paints, Prismacolor pens and markers, and custom frames perfect for saving favorite art pieces or memorializing a sibling's failure to color within the lines.
Nadeau characterizes its furniture as "with a soul" because it's true artisan work: handcrafted from wood rather than mass-produced from gasket pylons. Showcase fine china and live gerbils in a mahogany regal glass-door cabinet ($372), or in a hefty, finely trimmed narrow bookcase with drawer ($197). Or, display a new moving picture box on a bobbin leg console table ($116). Furniture comes in a myriad of stains and colors, and many pieces are one-of-a-kind. Nadeau's ever-changing inventory includes a variety of sturdy dining room tables and chairs. Prices and selection may vary due to rotating inventory, but pieces are always fully assembled and ready to welcome any tuckered torso or mound of toothbrushes.
