Most students in introductory stained-glass-making classes are in search of a new hobby or a fun few hours, but not Connie Beckers. In 1995, she took such a course and soon built a career around the art of stained glass and kiln-working. Now, through The Goddess of Glass, she teaches others her craft during classes that cover the creation of jewelry, coasters, plates, and transparent overalls. She?s also been known to flex her instructional muscle as a guest artist on the DIY Network show I Hate my Kitchen, on the episode entitled Cramped Quarters, where she taught the show?s host and contractor how to make stained-glass tiles for a kitchen in the middle of remodeling. The Goddess of Glass also sells artwork and gifts out of a separate retail shop. Patrons can commission a custom piece, such as a stained-glass window, or peruse a collection of pieces by more than 80 local artisans. The shop?s staff can also advise clients who need custom framing, helping them to pick the proper matting and frame so that their Richard Nixon rookie cards really pop.

When Max Schneiderman began his family’s business, it was a grocery store first and foremost. Then Schneiderman’s began to carry a few furniture items and slowly these grew to overshadow the cans of soup and produce until the furnishings finally swallowed the foodstuffs whole. Now, Schneiderman's Furniture has spread from the Iron Range to spots throughout the Twin Cities. The showrooms stock local and foreign furniture from more than 100 manufacturers. Many items in stock can be customized in color and texture to match a homeowner's current obsession with plastic flamingos.

Threads & Inks helps schools, businesses, sports teams, and individuals create their own custom uniforms, sweatshirts, and hats——both casual clothing and workwear. Choose the garment you want customized—whether it’s a screen-printed sweatshirts, embroidered knit caps, or anything—and the team can emblazon it with the logo of a nearby school, company, or loved one's initials. The technicians process nearly every order in-house and produce it locally. One of their most popular items: custom-made letter jackets, which they distribute to a wide range of local schools and academies, decorated with chenille patches so a high-school student can show off their lettering in football or keep count of defeated challengers in spelling bees.

Built-in back massagers greet guests as they sink into Elite Nail Spa's pipeless pedicure chairs, perched above foot jacuzzis with massaging whirlpool jets.

The spa also tailors Princess pedicures to children younger than 12 and paints ACT answers on the toenails of high-school seniors. In addition to nail services, Elite Nail Spa treats guests to Swedish, hot-stone, acupressure, and other varieties of massage, as well as custom facials with extractions and vapor treatments.
