With two locations, an accommodating staff of floral designers and artists, and more than 30 years in the business, Crafts & Stuff has carved out a respected place in the Palm Beach arts-and-crafts community. Art and craft supplies range from Prismacolor markers to jewelry-making kits, and share shelf space with an array of wedding accouterments. Nearlyweds can rent custom floral pieces and artists can bring in their glitter and macaroni masterpieces to be immortalized by custom framers who ply their trade on site.
Deep-green clouds of kale spread out above gnarled ginger roots and fuzzy kiwis at newly opened Village Organic Market, in the recently renamed Village Market Plaza, which offers organic prepared foods, produce, and other groceries. Fresh coconut water or almond milk shine as a base in smoothies alongside fresh fruits and veggies, rather than being overwhelmed by artificial additives. Juices might combine romaine and celery, or draw on boosts such as cacao nibs for their flavor and antioxidants, or kale for its vitamins. Plates clatter against the table, carrying organic salads and sandwiches covered in goat cheese, beets, hummus, and roasted garlic.
There's no buyer's remorse at Treasures for Hope Charity Store, since the proceeds of each sale benefit the local foster-care community, Place of Hope.

A miniature clay-racing track is the centerpiece of Basher’s RC Raceway, facilitating races for hobbyists, competitive drivers, and partygoers. The indoor facility’s simulated terrain allows racers to maintain command over their remote-control-operated mini vehicles to stay competitive regardless of inclement weather or impending asteroid impacts. The experts at Basher’s RC Raceway frequently host summer camps to teach young hobbyists the basics of RC-car handling, and they also rent out the facility for birthdays with organized races, food in private party rooms, and press conferences with the tiny drivers in each car.

The snack bar serves up pizza, drinks, and other snacks.
