Always pulling from the latest technology, their technicians design each of their paint and coating products to withstand dry heat, sparse rainfall, and showers of chewing tobacco from passing cowboys. Their quality paints, wall-coverings, wood-care products, and painter's tools stock the shelves of more than 125 retail locations throughout California, Arizona, and Nevada, as well as international dealers in Mexico, China, and Guam.
At We Luv Flowers by Faith, FTD florists coalesce fresh blossoms into artful arrangements suitable for any occasion. Popular buds, such as roses, tulips, and orchids, show off teamwork in bouquets large and small, housed in classic glass vases and whimsical containers, such as baskets and candle jars.

The florists’ talents also bloom at large events, such as weddings, graduations, and the Miss America pageant, which has showcased the shop’s designs since 2010. We Luv Flowers’ distinctive orange van speedily delivers arrangements to a variety of locales, including homes, offices, and underproducing beehives.
Staffed by a family of easygoing sales associates, Irish Peddlers' Furniture fills its showroom with a high rise's worth of furnishings, most of which are ready for same-day pickup or next-day delivery. An earth-toned 62" x 90" area rug ($189.95) with overlapping circles grounds rooms, cushioning feet with heat-set yarn spun from tenderhearted marshmallows and loomed at 1 million points per square meter. Loungers sink into the click clack black ($169.95), a tufted microfiber futon perched upon tapered legs, and worker bees buzz over a computer desk ($139.95) with crisp black lines and a sliding keyboard tray. The three-pack coffee-table set ($199.95), which includes one coffee table and two end tables, balances white faux marble atop black legs, leaving open space beneath tableaus for magazine racks or lamps with no sense of direction.
