The aisles at Napa Valley Art Supplies are as colorful as the paintings their materials help to create. Tubes of oil, acrylic, and watercolor paints, from brands such as Prismacolor and Liquitex, await to top an arsenal of Winsor & Newton brushes made to suit varying types of paint, desired brushstrokes, or canvas tickle-thresholds. Beads, jewelry, water-soluble crayons, and frames help inspire other artistic endeavors, while markers and eco-friendly Plutonium and Liquitex spray paints fuel onsite expression during BYOB events, which?in the past?have included a Spray Can Slam with local writers and street artists.
A stained carpet reflects poorly not just on its owner but also on the storm window’s ability to keep out gusts of tropical fruit punch. Keep a neat abode with today's Groupon: for $59, you get two rooms of carpet-cleaning service from Eco Friendly Services (a $159 value).
Carpet-cleaning technicians from Eco Friendly Services wield an arsenal of environmentally friendly, nontoxic cleansing products.

The environmentally friendly products deodorize carpets with a clean citrus scent without overloading floor coverings with dangerous chemicals that endanger children or pets. Afterward, the technicians dry and groom each carpet to make it look as clean and welcoming as the day it was sheared off a wooly mammoth’s back.
