For over 30 years, 3 Day Blinds' technicians have sift through samples and unreel measuring tapes during in-home consultations, custom-fitting abodes with blinds, shutters, and shades. They handcraft and cut treatments such as faux wood blinds, vertical blinds, and flexcell honeycomb blinds that reduce light and are energy efficient. As they tailor-make each order, the staffers dress windows of all shapes and sizes, from an arch above a doorway to a misshapen wormhole in the attic. All of 3 Day Blinds’ products come with a limited lifetime warranty. After clients have made a selection, the team shows up just two days later to install the new window dressings or let customers do it themselves.

Throughout the course of their lives, people might spend several hours studying their hair in the mirror, but that qualifies very few of them to be trichologists. The branch of medicinal science known as trichology focuses on the study of the hair and scalp, and it’s a field that Agape Jordan is intimately familiar with, thanks to her certification. She puts her knowledge to use creating gentle, hair-restorative scalp treatments free of harsh chemicals. They are suited for those who suffer from a hair-loss disease such as lupus or those in the midst of chemotherapy.
She complements her specialized head-dressing treatments with skin-pampering services for all. Her epidermal services emphasize acne treatments, vitamin C restorative facials, and anti-aging treatments designed to repel the chief causes of aging: homework, bosses, and the undeniable loveliness of Florida.
Glowing monkeys scamper toward a neon waterfall, and a knight bearing a radiant yellow lance rides past a bright orange octopus emerging from the ocean. What appears to be a time-traveling session gone awry is really the evolving environment within Putting Edge’s indoor black-lit mini-golf course, which whisks players to deep seas, Aztec jungles, and medieval times. Since opening its original location in Canada, Putting Edge has now expanded to 16 North American locations, all of which invite guests onto its challenging 18-hole courses to seek victory over opponents and the forces that keep their teeth from not glowing as brightly as they could. Elsewhere, the facility houses private party rooms, concessions, and an arcade filled with gamer favorites such as air hockey.
Not many antique stores have a more fitting location than one housed in a mid-nineteenth-century barn. At the aptly named The Barn Antiques, a dizzying array of vintage paraphernalia fills the space, some of it spilling out into the colorful, landscaped garden in the form of retro white plant holders and birdhouses that attract robins who trill Vaudeville-era tunes. Amid the treasures, one might find pottery pieces by McCoy and Red Wing, handwoven rag rugs, nostalgic postcards, and oil lamps—all of them culled from the collections of celebrated antiques dealers.
