Bridesmade Blooms allows brides-to-be to create their own wedding pieces without the help of florists or the perpetually overcharging fairy godmothers' union. Every flower-related portion of a wedding—from the flower girl's petals to corsages—is covered in the company's videos, which download straight to your computer. To help with planning, the videos are accompanied by PDFs that make it easy to figure how many roses to purchase and supplies to buy. Bridesmade Blooms’s owner, Vicki, offers answers to frequently asked questions and other helpful hints.
The thousands of unpainted pottery pieces that line Walls Of Clay’s walls are each blank canvases for painters’ creative designs. Pottery in shapes like plates, heart-shaped tiles, and animal figurines wait for the studio's provided brushes and paints to bring them to life. Once decorated, the pottery pieces spend time in the studio’s kiln, where under the watchful eye of Walls Of Clay staffers, their paint jobs become permanent, like a dishwasher-safe tattoo.

In 1965, Popular Mechanics ran a small classified ad for Brookstone, a new catalog company that packed its pages with functional products and detail-oriented descriptions. Brookstone quickly expanded to meet the high demand for its collection of “hard-to-find tools,” and opened the door to its first retail location in 1973. Today, Brookstone’s more than 300 nationwide retail locations allow customers to test-drive its ever-growing lineup of interesting products, which range from Bluetooth-enabled massage chairs to power adapters designed for international travelers and their electronic passports. Staying true to its roots as a catalog company, Brookstone houses an even larger selection of products, each waiting patiently to be shipped, on its website.

Whitehall Fine Gifts and Collectibles offers over 20 varieties of gourmet chocolates and truffles, as well as stocking a bounty of fine art glass, antiques, and everyday gifts. Indulgent chocolates include the sea-salt caramel and the showgirl truffle with strawberry and raspberry purée, which arrives entombed in a milk-chocolate sarcophagus that preserves its rich flavors for the perusal of later archaeologists after being dipped in white chocolate and dusted with sugar. In addition to edible treats, the shop stocks its shelves with an array of collectibles, such as wind spinners and twisters ($25–$35), and Dynasty paperweights in many styles ($15–$40) that keep squadrons of paper airplanes from taking wing and dive-bombing collections of statues, Boyds Bears, Willow Tree angels, dolls, and fashionable jewelry.
